  • They report discomfort to exercise.

The lengthening of the labia majora is a normal process that occurs over the years, just as the earlobes, the lips of the face lengthen and the nose descends or the nasal tip descends, the same process undergoes the lips older than the vagina.

Surgery of the vaginal labia majora is a procedure that is performed with local anesthesia and sedation.

It has the benefits that improves the aesthetics of the lips and also allows to reduce the vaginal diameter that is enlarged by the weakening of the muscular structures and childbirth.


Generally the scar is imperceptible. The suture is made with absorbable material which avoids the need to remove the stitches.

Generally the patient takes a week off to reduce edema and discomfort. The usual thing is to prescribe antibiotics and anti-inflammatories, cold packs in the region help a lot.

Avoid using tampons and having sex the first 4 to 6 weeks after treatment.
