Labia correction of labia reduction

Many women suffer from it, but not a lot of women talk about it: a labia that is too big. At Praktijk Gabriels we often encounter this and we are well aware how annoying these complaints can be. We are happy to help you with a labia correction for the outer labia.

What is labia correction of the labia majora?

Enlarged labia can occur due to a number of causes:

  1. It can simply be hereditary
  2. The labia can change permanently during and after delivery of a child. 
  3. Menopause can loosen the skin
  4. Continuous irritation of the labia
  5. Inflammation in the area around the vagina

No vagina is the same and therefore the size of the labia differs per woman. When the outer labia is too large, this can lead to pain or discomfort in your daily activities like sports (such as cycling and riding). In addition, complaints can also arise during sex. These are annoying and serious complaints in which there is often also a feeling of shame.

Consultation for a labia correction

Before a labia correction of the inner labia can be performed, we would like to see you for a consult with our cosmetic gynecologist: Joke Haartsen. During this consultation you can indicate what issues you are bothered with, what your wishes are and of course you can ask questions. When the consultation has gone well and you decide to have the surgery carried out, an appointment will be booked for the operative treatment.

A labia correction is a simple procedure. In general, the treatment is done under local anesthesia.  During the treatment, excess skin is removed and the labia wil be re-modeled. After the excess skin is removed we use soluble sutures to close the incision.


When the labia correction has been performed, the area around the vagina will feel sensitive for a few hours when the anesthesia wears of. It can take 6 to 10 weeks for the swelling to disappear completely disappear.
