Labiaplasty Majora

Labiaplasty majora, also known as labia majora reduction or labia majora surgery, is a surgical procedure that focuses on altering the size or appearance of the labia majora, which are the outer folds of the vulva. This type of labiaplasty is performed for various reasons, including aesthetic preferences, discomfort, or functional issues. Here’s an overview of labiaplasty majora:

Reasons for Labiaplasty Majora:

  1. Aesthetic Concerns: Some individuals may be dissatisfied with the size, shape, or symmetry of their labia majora and seek labiaplasty to achieve their desired appearance.
  2. Discomfort: Enlarged or elongated labia majora can lead to discomfort or irritation during physical activities, such as exercise, sexual intercourse, or when wearing tight clothing.
  3. Aging and Volume Loss: As individuals age, they may experience a loss of volume and sagging of the labia majora. Labiaplasty majora can address these changes.
  4. Rejuvenation: Some individuals seek labiaplasty majora as part of a comprehensive vaginal rejuvenation to improve the overall appearance of the genital area.

The Labiaplasty Majora Procedure:

  1. Consultation: The process typically begins with a consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon or gynecologist who specializes in labiaplasty. During this consultation, you will discuss your concerns, goals, and expectations.
  2. Surgery: On the day of the procedure, you will be placed under anesthesia, which can be local anesthesia with or without sedation, or general anesthesia, depending on the surgeon’s recommendation and your preference. The surgeon will then perform labiaplasty majora, which involves trimming or reshaping the labia majora to achieve the desired size and contour.
  3. Techniques: The surgeon may use various techniques, which can include liposuction to remove excess fat or tissue from the labia majora, or surgical excision to reduce the size of the labia majora.
  4. Suturing: After making the necessary adjustments, the surgeon will carefully suture the incisions with dissolvable stitches to promote healing. The goal is to create a neater and more comfortable appearance of the labia majora.


Recovery from labiaplasty majora typically involves swelling, discomfort, and bruising for a few days. Pain medication may be prescribed to manage discomfort, and limited physical activity, including abstaining from sexual intercourse, is typically recommended for several weeks. Follow-up appointments with your surgeon will be necessary to monitor healing and address any concerns.


The results of labiaplasty majora can vary from person to person, but the primary goal is to achieve a more comfortable and aesthetically pleasing appearance of the labia majora. It’s essential to have realistic expectations and discuss your goals with your surgeon during the consultation.

When considering labiaplasty majora, it’s crucial to choose a qualified and experienced surgeon who specializes in labiaplasty procedures. During the consultation, you can discuss your concerns, desired outcomes, and any questions you may have about the surgery.
