Displeased with the looks of your intimate area or your intimacy? You may be a candidate for labiaplasty. Some women have enlarged labia minora with age, after childbirth, or because of genetics. This issue can affect their sexual life, interfere with their physical activities, cause them discomfort in wearing clothes, and even make them embarrassed.
Labiaplasty is an operation done to rejuvenate the vagina by targeting the external vaginal tissues- the labia. It is an aesthetic procedure performed to shorten the labia minora or correct any asymmetry between labia majora and labia minora. Labia minora is the sensitive inner lips, the skin flaps on either side of the vaginal opening, and labia majora are the outer vaginal tissues.

If performed for cosmetic purposes, it can bring labia majora and labia minora in harmony, lessen the dark labial tissue, and get rid of irregular (scalloped) borders around the perimeter of the labia. In terms of functional improvements, labiaplasty can provide comfort to women who are unsatisfied with their intimate area anatomy or intimacy.

Labiaplasty in Hyderabad is a 1-2 hours long procedure. Labiaplasty typically involves the elimination of unwanted vaginal tissues using a scalpel and stitching of looser edges with fine, absorbable stitches. The procedure may involve the making of incisions and their closure with sutures. Depending upon the patient's needs, the surgeon makes use of either of the following surgical techniques:
Trim method (edge excision)- This technique involves trimming the extra vaginal tissues at the edges of the labia minora using traditional surgical instruments or lasers. It is done to provide a more desirable shape and size of the labia. It is an ideal technique for patients having discolored or uneven labia.
Wedge technique- In this technique, the surgeon takes out a wedge-shaped tissue section from the middle-third portion of the labia. After removal, the surgeon will stitch together the bottom and top parts of the labia. It is a technique best for patients having asymmetrical labia and/or enlarged labia minora (a substantial amount of inner vaginal tissues). This is preferred for achieving natural-looking results.
