According to one survey, labiaplasty – a cosmetic procedure improving the appearance of elongated or large inner vulva lips – has high rates of patient satisfaction.

The survey was distributed to plastic surgeons who are members of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. The study was designed to look at things like the effectiveness of different labiaplasty techniques, as well as outcomes and patient satisfaction. Of the 750 surgeons who responded to the survey, the average patient satisfaction rate reported was more than 95 percent for all techniques, and there was no significant statistical difference when comparing the satisfaction rates among the different techniques.

Women with large inner vulva lips, or “labia minora,” often feel embarrassed or dissatisfied with the appearance of their genitalia. In addition to aesthetic concerns, enlarged and elongated labia minora may lead to:

  • Discomfort while exercising
  • Discomfort while walking or sitting down
  • Dissatisfaction with your appearance in lingerie and swimsuits
  • Interference with sexual activity

Labia minora reduction surgery provides a way to rejuvenate the genital area, creating a proportionate and symmetrical shape.
