Does my vagina look normal?
Laser labiaplasty can remove loose labial skin and improve the appearance of the labia.
Thank you very much for your question and photographs. The loose protruding skin that you see on your labia is quite common and does cause irritation when you wear tight fitting clothes and many women are embarrassed about large or labia.
Labiaplasty is in excellent and very helpful procedure that can remove the loose skin and make the labia looked much smaller and more normal.
Because the labia are so delicate I use a laser to remove the excess tissue and this avoids using a scalpel and traumatizing this very delicate tissue.
Please go to my photographs on Realself.com and you will be able to see 3 patient's before and after pictures of patients who had laser labioplasty.
The "normal" vagina.
Based on your pictures it appears that your labia fall well within the "normal" range. That does not mean, however, that you are not a good candidate for a labiaplasty procedure. If you feel embarrassed or self conscious about your appearance, you should seek a consultation from a plastic surgeon who is experienced with labiaplasty procedures to express your concerns. The surgery will not only give you more confidence, it can also improve symptoms of discomfort that you might be having.

My Vagina Doesn't Look Normal
Women come to my office all the time wanting to look “normal” and we have to discuss what they are trying to achieve with their surgery.
You are well within the range of normal. There is currently a trend where woman do not like the appearance of the additional tissue that hangs below he vagina. At times this extra skin can interfere with intercourse or cause pain with exercise but most commonly it is just and aesthetic preference for woman.
I hope this helps.
Is my vagina normal?
The bottom line is - the photos look normal. If you don't have any physical problems and your primary care doctor/gynecologist feels everything is normal on examination - don't worry! Surgery is only an option for women who understand the risks and want to change the way they look because they feel that they will be more comfortable or confident if some of the tissue is removed.

Does this look normal
Based on these photos, it does appear that you have some excess of your labia minora, which is the inner fold or "lip" that surrounds the opening to the vagina. A labiaplasty is the procedure that would be used to correct this problem. There are different techniques so be sure to do your research and be careful about techniques that could, if overdone, result in "amputation" of the entire labia minora.

If you feel that the area has too much tissue, then this area can certainly be reduced. The labia minora reduction will produce a major change in your contour and will do the most to get you to your goals. Find a board certified plastic surgeon with experience in these procedures.

Loss of volume in labia.
Many women have loss of volume in the labia majora and labia minora. The majora are the outer skin and minor, the thinner skin medially. There are many reasons these changes develop including loss of weight, after giving birth, hormonal fluctuations, possibly excessive exercise or straining or it may be congenital. Sometimes this excess skin causes irritation to the area, problems urinating, embarrassment, discomfort with intercourse or problems with underwear or gym clothing. The procedure to decrease the size of the labiaminora is called a labiaplasty. I would recommend a fat transfer to the labia majora to give more volume. Both of these procedures may be done while you are awake with local anesthesia. Patients are very happy with the results. Thank you.
