My labia are too large

Dear Dr. Reed,  Do you do labia reduction. I just feel they’re all over the place and I never feel clean. Linda

Dear Linda,  Yes we do labial reduction, which may also involvement refinement of the clitoral hood and at times labia majora reduction.  The labia majora and the scrotum are anatomic homologs, so if you see a tendency in that direction it could be a normal variation or some type of hormonal influence.  A serum estrogen and testosterone could be helpful as well as a chromosomal karyotype.  Women normally have a testosterone level one tenth of a man, which peaks at the time of ovulation.  Nature’s way of promoting sexual desire.

Below is a before and after photo of a patient of ours who is obviously well endowed.  A post-op photo is also submitted.
