On the vagina, small labia (labium minus) lay between the large labia as a thin skin lab. In some women, the fact that the inner labia are longer than the outer labia in such a way that they overflow the outer labia does not cause a significant medical problem, but it may impair the aesthetical appearance. This case which can be present congenitally or occur after birth or due to losing or gaining excessive weights may turn woman’s sexual life into a nightmare.
Small labia can be made smaller as required under local anesthesia and operating room conditions. Anyone can undergo this operation whether married or single, delivered a child or not. Wound is stitched with absorbable sutures. This surgery does not damage hymen, or it does not pose any damage or obstacle regarding the sexual relationship, orgasm, conception and delivery. When the recovery period is completed after the surgery, no trace and surgery sign remain. No urination problem occurs after surgery. Wound recovery is completed within one week. Patient can engage in a sexual intercourse 3 to 4 weeks after surgery.
Labium majus, i.e. external labia sometimes can be longer than normal structurally. In this case, labia may be tensioned as these are pushed by the penis during a sexual intercourse and this may lead to pain. As it is, these structures can also be reduced to normal sizes with treatment or cosmetic surgery.
