Protrusion of the labia minora (internal lips on either side of the vagina) may case irritation and pain. It also is a source of physical embarrassment for some patients. The length and apperance of the labia minora are largely genetic, but also can be influenced by child birth and the normal aging process. A labiabplasty is a procedure that is designed to remove excess tissues and improve the contour of the labia minor and majora.

- Excessively long, thick, or asymmetric labia minora
