What do normal labia look like?
Should you decide to pursue a labiaplasty, I highly recommend that you identify a surgeon that is trained in vaginal reconstructive and aesthetic surgery. Not all plastic surgeons or gynecologists have specialized training in these procedures and is not one to take lightly when choosing your surgeon.
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.
There is a wide range of "normal" labia. Enlarged labia that swell and interfere with sex and other physical activities, may not serve you well. Patients who have these complaints will benefit from a reduction labiaplasty for both cosmetic and functional improvements. You may consider seeing a surgeon in your area who has experience doing labiaplasty procedures should you choose to have treatment.

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.
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.
Is there loose skin?
There is a wide range of normal when it comes to labia. If it bothers you either cosmetically or functionally (rubs during exercise, extra tissue gets in the way during sex, bunches in clothing) then a labiaplasty can be considered. Many women don't like it when the labia minor (the inner part) hangs below the labia major (the outer part). It looks as if you have slightly more tissue on the left side of your labia minora than your right side when looking at the third photo you provided. I would recommend visiting your local board certified plastic surgeon and discussing your options if you don't like the appearance or if the extra tissue gets in the way of your daily activities. Best wishes!
Based on your photos is appears as though you do have excess of the labia minora. This can be addressed with a labiaplasty.
What are "Normal Labia"?
Just as with every other part of the body, there is a wide range of what is considered "normal" in terms of appearance. You seem to be have slightly asymmetric labia minora in your photos, but this is in no way abnormal. Still, if it bothers you cosmetically, you could consider a labiaplasty.
In my opinion there is nothing "abnormal" about your appearance of the area. However from an aesthetic standpoint you may be referring to the labia minora being bulkier or larger then you like. This is all patient dependent and what your goals are in terms of cosmetics or what bother you about the appearance. It appears the labia minora which is the inner "lips" and clitoral hood can be reduced if you would like. Thank you.
