A labioplasty (or labiaplasty) is a surgical procedure that will reduce and/or reshape the labia minora – the skin that covers the female clitoris and vaginal opening. Occasionally women also request reduction of the labia majora. This can be done at the same time through the labioplasty incision. Women with large labia complain of pain during intercourse, discomfort during everyday activities and often feel considerable embarrassment. Labial reduction can also greatly improve the aesthetic appearance of an abnormally enlarged labia.
