Labiaplasty: There is a way to make the labia less prominent and more aesthetic called labiaplasty. It is a surgical procedure. There is not a way to tighten the labia without surgery.

Reduce not tighten: Labia can be reduced and the remaining repaired to give the appearance of a tighter labia. This is known as a labiaplasty procedure. A variety of techniques have been described.
Dr. J. Kyle Mathews

Tighten labia: The labia majora can be tightened somewhat by the use of radio frequency waves. The procedure is called pelleve and is fda a approved to reduce wrinkles & tighten the skin on the face. The off label use of pelleve to tighten the labia majora has shown reasonable results in some patient. It has not been effective in treating labia minora.

Yes , labiaplasty: Labiaplasty is a method to reduce and eliminate excess or redundant labia tissue that one may find objectionable. This is performed by plastic surgeons or gynecologists.
Dr. John Di Saia

Tightening: Redundant labiae can be tightened a bit by labiaplasty but be clear as to what you mean. The tightening does not make you tighter vaginally in most cases. Things just look smaller and tighter in appearance.
Dr. Anthony Brignoni

Yes: Labiaplasty is a cosmetic surgery that changes the aesthetics of a woman’s essentially normal anatomy. Labiaplasty is a procedure for reducing, altering and reshaping the labia minora, clitoral hood, the paired structures that cover the clitoris and the vaginal opening. Different techniques to accomplish your goal. Now, this does not tighten the vagina. Vaginoplasty( sx. Tightening of vagina).

Can low c3c be caused by severe vulval spongiosis?

Dr. Robert Kwok
Pediatrics 33 years experience
Have not heard that: A common inflammatory disorder of the vulva is eczematous dermatitis, which means the presence of intercellular edema (called “spongiosis”) in the top layer of skin, with some inflammation (itching, redness, irritation). Spongiosis means that extra fluid can be seen around the skin cells, under a microscope. An allergist, immunologist, or rheumatologist can help figure out why C3 is low.

Dr. Richard Bensinger
Ophthalmology 52 years experience
Think about it: Labia come in all shapes and sizes and attractiveness also comes in all varieties. Who is displeased with your labial shape? I have not heard this to a consideration in allure. If you must, consult with your gynecologist who can recommend a treatment termed labiaplasty to handle this.
