Labiaplasty is one of the rapidly growing cosmetic procedures in our Northern California plastic surgery practice. Prominent labia minora (small lips around the vagina) can develop naturally, appear at puberty, or occur after stretching from childbirth. Women with prominent labia minora are sometimes embarrassed by the visible contours in workout clothes or in swim suits. They often report a discomfort from the sensation of pulling, irritation, or rubbing when wearing tight jeans or form-fitting underwear. Other complaints associate with activity include pain when riding a bicycle, working out, or even during intercourse. The labiaplasty procedure aims at sculpting the labia minora so they do not protrude and become visible from a front view. After labiaplasty, patients report comfort in clothing, freedom from tugging during activities, and confidence in wearing bathing suits.
