Labia minora reduction
There are two techniques for reduction of the labia minora: Edge Resection and ‘Alter’ Wedge Excision (3,4)
Edge resection technique
This is a simple resection of tissues at the edge of the labia minora.
‘Alter’ wedge excision
This is a wedge resection of the labia minora which preserves the natural edge of the labia. It can be combined with a reduction of the clitoral hood.
Labia majora reduction
The labia majora is reduced with an elliptical excision with the inside scar at the junction of the inner lining and the external skin.
