Labia minora reduction surgery, otherwise called as the labiaplasty or labial reduction is a vaginal rejuvenation procedure technique for adjusting the labia minora, i.e., the internal labia and the labia majora which is the external labia, the folds of skin encompassing the vaginal area. 

This procedure resolves aesthetic issues in a way that provides natural-looking results, helping women with enlarged labia minora on one side or either side feel comfortable and confident with their body. To treat this, one has to undergo surgical procedure, because labia minora reduction without surgery is not possible if the individual wants to have permanent results. Labiaplasty recovery changes from one individual to another, however most ladies can get back to their typical daily practice within 1 to 2 weeks.

It should be understood that labia minora reduction without surgery, is not one among the treatment options in case the individual is looking for longer lasting results. There are two predominant treatment techniques that your doctor will consider based on the extent of vagina’s condition.

Trim procedure: It is the originally invented procedure and is generally normal to perform. It is additionally the most widely utilised method used by plastic specialists. In this type of procedure, the overabundant part of the labia minora is eliminated and stitched so it is symmetrical and balanced with the labia majora. 

Wedge procedure: In this methodology, a halfway thickness wedge is taken out from the thickest area of the labia minora. The submucosa (layer tissue underneath a mucous membrane) should be left undamaged by eliminating just a partial thickness. This treatment also gives the vagina a natural looking characteristic after the medical procedure, safeguarding the wrinkled edges.
