Many women contact us, because they like to do something about their labia (vaginal lips). Their anatomical situation is a huge emotional problem for them. Many feel shy and do not like to show their erogenous zone to their partner any longer. Their love live is affected. However, many women underestimate the importance of the following: To perform a labial correction procedure special expert knowledge is critical. Quick and simple surgical procedures will often make matters worse.
Professional labial correction requires extensive experience. 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 surgical techniques. We are regularly cited in the scientific 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.
We require our work to be of the highest medical standard. Our procedures are based on specifically developed techniques, recognised in the scientific community as leading surgical techniques for years. For labial corrections we use, among others, an RF surgical devise, enabling extremely precise incisions. With this, the procedure can be performed in a more tissue-saving manner to facilitate an earlier start of the healing process.
In addition, it is important to us that the result satisfies your aesthetic expectations. Your labia will have a new, rejuvenated appearance. Our aim is to create a balanced overall appearance. On many women the procedure has a very liberating effect. They are at ease again when showing themselves. Their shyness and ill feelings have disappeared, as we hear over and over again.

As we have seen, both functional and aesthetic reasons may be behind the wish to undergo labial correction. The anatomical function of the labia is to seal the introitus (vaginal opening) and protect the vagina from drying out and against the intrusion of foreign bodies or germs. For this protective function, an anatomical situation is ideal where the labia majora (outer lips) fully cover the labia minora (inner lips). If the labia minora are too long and protrude beyond the labia majora or if the labia majora are flabby or have not formed fully enough, vaginal infections may occur more frequently.
Labia and clitoral hood are one anatomical unit. This should be accounted for when performing a labial correction. In 80-90% of cases, a hyperplasia (enlargement) of the labia minora is found that extends over their entire course. None of the surgical techniques proposed so far has taken this into account; therefore, the patient may end up with an unbalanced result and an unnaturally appearing genital region ("too little at the lower part, too much at the upper part").
Therefore, we use for the labial correction of Prof. Gress surgical techniques developed by us over many years which are fundamentally different from the techniques used elsewhere. Our techniques do not only allow for the integration of the clitoral hood into the course of the procedure, but also achieve a very balanced and aesthetic result. The use of radiofrequency (RF) surgery (similar to laser) accelerates the healing process as the incisions tend bleed very little. Swelling and mild pain usually disappear after a short while, so any limitations in performing the usual daily activities the patient may experience will not stay for long.
At the initial consultation you will have the opportunity to look at anonymised images of patients and to enquire about the costs. However, the law prohibits the publication of these images on the internet and also that they are handed out and taken out of the clinic.
A reduction of the labia majora and minora should not be performed during the same surgical procedure. A minimum period of 6 months has to be allowed between the two procedures, because complications (such as e.g. wound healing abnormalities) occur that affect the later outcome.
