Pregnancy and childbirth may cause changes in the labia minora, including enlargement of inner lips of the female genital region.  This enlargement may cause patients to experience discomfort associated with wearing certain types of clothes, sports activities and intimacy.  In some patients labia minora enlargement may occur as a result of normal development and may result in excessive growth of the labia minora.  A cosmetic surgery procedure known as a labiaplasty may help define and recontour the labia minora.  In doing so, there is a noticeable improvement in the cosmetic appearance of the labia minora as well as improvement in symptoms associated with labia minora enlargement. 


The most common symptoms for undergoing labiaplasty include problems with hygiene, discomfort associated with sports activities, wearing of tight fitting clothes, and intimacy. 


It is believed that labia minora enlargement is an under recognized source of dyspareunia, which is a medical term used to describe pain and discomfort during intercourse.  If you have questions regarding labiaplasty surgery, please call our Los Angeles plastic surgery patient care coordinator at 310-998-5533.  Our office staff will help coordinate a comprehensive and confidential consultation for labiaplasty surgery with Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian.
