Labia Minora reduction

Both the inner (minora) and the outer (majora) labia can be corrected.

Reducing or correcting the labia minora is the most frequent procedure and can lead to an improvement in both the genital appearance and mental self-confidence.

During a labia correction, the plastic surgeon removes the excess labia tissue by electrocoagulation, which immediately seals all blood vessels so that there is little blood loss. He then stitches the wound with soluble wire, which ensures a speedy recovery. Or the surgeon shortens the protruding inner labia under local anaesthesia by marking the bulges and cutting them away. The patient can return home the same day.

After the procedure you will experience no to moderate pain. Strict hygiene must be observed: the zone must be regularly rinsed with an antiseptic and an antibiotic ointment must be applied for one week. However, infections are rare due to the good circulation of the labia.
