The labia minora consists of the two folds of skin that form the external part of the vagina. It is composed of two surfaces: the outer and inner surface. The outer surface is pigmented and is usually covered with pubic hair, while the inner surface consists of mucosa. Labia minora rejuvenation, also known as labiaplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that enhances the appearance of the labia minora. The process is meant to make the labia appear more contoured and to remove sagging or drooping folds of skin. The process of labia minora rejuvenation is typically performed on women who have an enlarged or asymmetric labia minora. The goal is to provide beautiful, well-sculpted, and natural-looking skin folds. The presence of an asymmetric or enlarged labia minora can cause discomfort when wearing clothes or having sexual intercourse, and can lead to self-consciousness about one’s appearance. For these reasons, many women choose to undergo labia minora rejuvenation. Dr. Mark P.
