Many women feel very distressed by labia that are too large. You feel shy and do not like to show your erogenous zone to your partner any longer. You avoid going to a sauna or do no longer wear tight clothing. However, what is often underestimated: To perform a labial reduction requires expert knowledge. Surgical procedures performed in haste and without attention to detail will often make matters worse.
In 80 to 90 percent of cases, not only the labia are enlarged, but also the clitoral hood. They form one unit. However, almost all common surgical techniques do not take this into account. Frequently, a part of the labia below the clitoris is reduced “in a rush”. The result of such surgery is an unnaturally looking genital region, with the appearance as if there was "too little at the lower part, too much at the upper part ". We are again and again contacted by women requesting to have the result of such surgery corrected.
In our clinic in Munich, we have performed more than 2,500 procedures in the genital area since 1995, including approx. 1,800 labial reductions. Our sophisticated procedures are based on specifically developed techniques, which have been recognised in the scientific community as leading surgical techniques for years. We are regularly cited in the research literature, at congresses and in the media. With our procedures, we achieve a balanced overall appearance and our patients are very satisfied with these results. This is also demonstrated by our regular survey in which we score on average 9.2 out of 10 points.
The use of a radiofrequency (RF) surgical device (similar to laser) enables very precise and tissue-saving incisions. With this, we can remove excessive tissue from the labia and the clitoral hood. In addition to tissue removal, the clitoris can be shifted towards the vaginal opening, if it is protruding too much. For these different procedures, it will take around two to three hours for the surgery to be completed, as they require more time – especially in comparison to the above mentioned fast operations. The result of tightening and shifting has a significantly greater aesthetic appeal. A balanced anatomical situation is created which allows our patients to feel good about themselves again. 38 percent of the treated women report enhanced sexual enjoyment when the clitoris was shifted towards the vaginal opening.

Following in-depth advice and a pre-examination, you will undergo the surgical procedure. Typically, it is performed on an outpatient basis under local anaesthesia; however, on request twilight sedation or general anaesthesia are also available. By using a laser knife, the healing period can be significantly shortened. Nevertheless, patients should expect that they have to refrain from sexual intercourse and sporting activities for at least six weeks. The stitches will dissolve spontaneously. Usually, there are no risks associated with labial reduction. Paraesthesia affecting sexual sensations cannot occur, because the nerves of the clitoris do not run through the skin but deep below on top of the pubic bone. This region is not involved in the procedure.
