In brief: Why labiaplasty

While there is a large variation in the appearance of "normal" labia minora, many women prefer to have excess tissue removed for appearance or for functional reasons.
Common reasons women seek labiaplasty are too much hanging or protruding labia, visible fullness in clothing, difficulty maintaining hygiene, pain during sexual intercourse, and discomfort during exercise or bike riding.

In brief: Many

Improved cosmetic appearance of labia if the woman has painful intercourse, problems with hygiene, difficulty wearing bikinis, pain while on an exercise bike, these complaints may be resolved with labiaplasty.

In brief: Many Reasons.

The labia minora reduction operation is a highly patient pleasing operation.
 often it serves to eliminate a “functional” concern (such as pinching of the tissue in clothing or while performing certain activities such as horseback riding or biking) and/or improving the “aesthetic” concerns as well ( such as the presence of “excess” skin, asymmetry, or simply visually unappealing appearance).
