How much labial skin is removed at the time of labiaplasty?

The goal of labiaplasty surgery is to remove enough of the labia minora to alleviate symptoms associated with enlarged labia. These symptoms may include chronic irritation, discomfort and rubbing during sexual intercourse, and when wearing tight fitting clothing. Some women with labial hyperplasia also complain of recurrent yeast infections or vulvar vestibulitis symptoms. By removing excess labial tissue, symptoms of irritation typically resolve and normal activities can be resumed.

Ultimately, the amount of skin removed is determined by the patient and Dr. Shashoua.
