Labia majora wrinkles and excess skin of the minor
Wrinkles in Labia Majora and excess tissue of the labia minora
This is a common and normal appearance of the Labia Majora. I can't tell the exact area of the labia minora that you are concerned about , but if this is an area of excess tissue, it could possibly be removed. If you are concerned about these areas, please see a gynecologist specializing in cosmetic genital surgery for suggestions as to how to approach your concerns. Best wishes!
Wrinkles on the labia major and minora.
if you do want to perform a procedure to minimize or remove these wrinkles then I would consider a nonsurgical ThermiVa procedure for these. This utilizes radio frequency to tighten the skin and therefore giving a more taunt appearance which lead to a decrease in wrinkles and an overall more youthful appearance..
This procedure is relatively painless with no downtime.

Minora and majora
Thanks for sharing. The labia majora wrinkles are normal but obviously unwanted. A large nose is normal for some individuals but they get a nose job well the same can apply to wrinkled labia majora. If it bothers you it can be fixed. The wrinkling usually comes from weight gain and weight loss and the resulting stretch skin get wrinkles not unlike other parts of the body. To get short term results of reducing the wrinkles one can do radiofrequency i.e. ThermiVA but to get long lasting/permanent results (pending no excessive weight gain/loss and and or pregnancy) labia majora reduction can be performed (please see the link below on the first paper in the world written on concurrent labia minora and majora reduction). As for the labia minora a small reduction of the labia minora can be performed simultaneously.
IMPORTANT: if you are going to reduce the majora and minora reduction the surgeon must understand that the majora should be reduced first (during same surgery) and then reduce the minora. If one does the minora first you will still end up with protruding labia minora. Also if you reduce the majora it will probably make both labia protrude a little more thus you are even more prone to have the labia minora reduction (minor reduction) on both sides.
When choosing a surgeon choose a surgeon who has vast experience in minora and majora reduction. Please note that very few surgeons have any experience the majora reduction. Look for before and after photos to help you make a decision on your surgeon. You don't want to end up like so many patients who consult this site with a botched labia reduction or devastating scars of the majora.

For the inner labia, there can be excess tissue which can be removed with a labiaplasty. Best to see an experienced plastic surgeon who specializes in labiaplasty or a GYN with lots of before and after photos of the labiaplasty surgery. Avoid the trim method if possible.
