Labiaplasty at Mode

What is Labiaplasty

Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure to reduce or increase the size of the labia, which are the folds of skin around your vaginal opening. The labia has two folds of skin;

1. Labia majora – these are the larger fleshy folds that protect external genitals organs, and

2. Labia minora – these are the smaller skin folds that protect the opening of your urethra and vagina.

People usually get this procedure to reduce physical discomfort or as part of gender-affirming surgery. Sometimes, you might want it for cosmetic reasons, but there’s a wide range of normal labia. Everyone’s labia are unique and there’s no ideal or “normal” way for them to look.

Reasons for Labiaplasty

Labiaplasty is suitable for women who want to

  • Improve the external appearance of their genitalia,
  • Wear tight clothes or swimwear without seeing the outline of the labia majora, or
  • Minimise discomfort during sexual intercourse.

Benefits of Labiaplasty

The most common benefits of labiaplasty are

  • Increased sexual pleasure – reduces the chance of the vaginal lips getting caught, stretched or otherwise interfering with sexual intercourse. Pleasure may also be made more accessible by reducing excess skin around the clitoral hood.
  • Greater comfort while exercising – a large or uneven labia can interfere with running, cycling and other physical activities. Exposed tissue can get chaffed, pinched, pulled and twisted.
  • Improved vaginal hygiene – reduced tissue reduces the risk of hygiene issues.
