The labia majora are the outer lips of the vulva can be reduced for functional or aesthetic reasons.
A labia majora reduction can be performed quickly using liposuction to remove excess fatty tissue and reshape the area.
The procedure by which the labia majora is reduced consists of an incision being made within the labia minora. This allows the surgeon to gain access to the labia majora’s fat beneath. The surgeon works carefully to provide a subtle yet significant reduction of the labia, while preserving symmetry.
The same technique can be used to reduce the size of the ‘mons pubis’ – which can be performed at the same time as a labia majora reduction. The surgery is performed under local anesthetics, and recovery is usually very swift.
