Hypertrophy of the labia minora can cause dyspareunia, chronic urinary tract infections, irritation, hygienic difficulties, and interference with sports... More recently, a system taking into account labial protrusion as well as the distance from the lateral edge of the labia minora to that of the labia majora has been proposed... Although there is no established anatomic standard, reports suggest that woman prefer a prepubescent aesthetic, with the labia minora tucked within the confines of the labia majora... A study evaluating 131 patients undergoing labiaplasty found that 32% sought surgery for functional impairment or discomfort, 37% sought surgery for aesthetic purposes, and 31% sought surgery for a combination of these reasons... Several labiaplasty techniques have been described including deepithelialization, direct excision, wedge resection, and composite reduction... It is best suited for patients with minimal hypertrophy... Direct excision is a straightforward approach to volume reduction; however, the aesthetic outcome is poor... Wedge resection accomplishes a comparable volume reduction with direct excision while preserving the native labial contour... Composite reduction labiaplasty aims to correct clitoral protrusion and hooding in addition to labial reduction... Composite reduction is associated with a higher rate of complications and reoperation than other techniques... Labiaplasty is an increasingly popular procedure with high satisfactions rates, although the definition of labial hypertrophy and indications for surgery remain debated... Several techniques are available to accomplish labial reduction, and future studies are needed to establish practices optimizing patient care.
