Minimally Invasive Techniques for Labia Minora Reduction
The Trim Technique
Also known as edge excision, the trim technique for labia minora reduction involves making a linear cut along the edges of the labia to remove excess tissue.
The trim technique is relatively simple, where the surgeon makes a linear cut using a scalpel, surgical scissors, laser or radiofrequency. This procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia. Once the excess tissue has been removed, the incision is sutured with dissolvable stitches.
This technique helps improve the labial appearance, reduce physical discomfort and improve sexual function in most women.
The Wedge Technique
This is a new alternative to the trim technique. The wedge technique involves removing a v-shaped wedge of tissue from the labia minora to reduce its size.
This procedure is also performed under local anesthesia. The surgeon makes a horizontal incision across the center of the labia minora to create two flaps of tissue. This is followed by removing the wedge of tissue, after which the two flaps are repositioned and sutured together with dissolvable stitches.
This technique creates a smaller, more symmetrical labial appearance and is less likely to cause scarring.
