Labia

The labia consist of two pairs:  the inner labia (labia minora) and outer labia (labia majora).  The outer labia typically conceal the inner labia without the inner pair being visible unless a woman’s legs are apart.  Abnormalities of one or both labia can occur.

Labial Conditions

- Labia asymmetry

- Labia enlargement

- Labia miniaturization

- Labial injury

- Labia piercing

- Female genital mutilation (FGM; female circumcision; female genital cutting)

Labial Procedures

- Labiaplasty (labia minora

  or inner lip reduction)

- Labia majora reduction and

  remodeling

- Labia reconstruction

- Labia piercing repair

- Monsplasty (pubic lift)

 

Inner Labia (Labia Minora)

The inner labia may be visible and exceed the outer labia when the legs are together or barely apart if the labia are enlarged, asymmetric, misshapen or elongated.  These issues of the labia may result in discomfort, problems or embarrassment during intimacy, sexual intercourse, exercise or when wearing tight clothing or bathing suits resulting in a noticeable bulge.  Labiaplasty is the surgical procedure to reduce and reshape the inner labia that surround the vaginal opening. Labiaplasty is also called labial reduction, labia minora reduction and inner lip reduction.

 

At Cosmetic Urology Institute, Dr. Palmer tailors the labiaplasty based on the specific needs of each individual woman.  The labia minora are inherently different for each woman so we consider the cosmetic appearance based on the genital anatomy of each individual woman. 

Outer Labia (Labia Majora)

Enlargement of the outer labia due to excess skin, fat or both may result from birth, aging, childbearing, and weight loss. These issues of the labia may result in discomfort, problems or embarrassment during intimacy, sexual intercourse, exercise or when wearing tight clothing or bathing suits resulting in a noticeable bulge ("camel toe").  Labia majora reduction and remodeling is the surgical procedure to reduce and reshape the outer labia.

 

At Cosmetic Urology Institute, Dr. Palmer individualizes the labia majora reduction and remodeling to the precise needs of each woman.  Dr. Palmer considers the cosmetic appearance based on the genital anatomy of the individual woman.  

Genital Piercing Repair

Women undergo genital piercing of the labia majora, labia minora and clitoral hood.  There are a number of reasons why a woman chooses to have genital piercing repair, including: 1) Tearing due to sexual intercourse and other physical trauma; 2) piercing holes widening over time; and, 3) changing of mind about a genital piercing.

 

Surgical intervention can be performed to address the cosmetic issues resulting from labial piercing that tears, widens or is unwanted.  Dr. Jeffrey Palmer is a highly-trained reconstructive urologist with a vast experience in genital reconstruction.  Dr. Palmer surgically repairs the issues associated with labial piercing by paying attention to detail. Genital piercing repair can be performed as part of labiplasty and clitoral hood reduction (clitoroplasty).
