Labia hypertrophy is the increased growth of either the labia minora or labia majora in relationship to one another. Although labial hypertrophy is not strictly defined yet as a pathologic condition, patients who have aesthetic or functional concerns may benefit from labial reductions.Significant hypertrophy of the labia can cause pain, irritation, and discomfort with clothing.

The decision on which procedure to perform is based on the individuals needs and indication and can vary from plumping up the genitalia to excision of the extra loose skin.
