Pregnancy, genetics and the natural aging process can all affect the shape and appearance of a woman's intimate anatomy. Elongated labia minora, the “lips” surrounding the vagina, can sometimes cause pain or discomfort when exercising, during intercourse or even when wearing slim-fitting clothing. Labial appearance can also cause some women to feel self-conscious, affecting their romantic relationships.
Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure Monarch surgeons perform that reduces and reshapes the length of the labia minora. According to Dr. Elizabeth Killion, a Monarch surgeon, “It is a procedure that has been around for quite some time, but more recently has gained a lot of attention and popularity.” Dr. Killion also points out that “Women who seek this procedure typically have both aesthetic and functional concerns.” There are several different techniques to labiaplasty surgery, which means our plastic surgeons can tailor the procedure to the specific needs and desires of their clients.
