What Causes Labial Enlargement?

Enlargement of the labia is also known as labial hypertrophy. This condition may be present since birth, or it may be caused by various factors throughout the course of life. Such factors include childbearing, the aging process, weight gain and others. While labial hypertrophy generally affects the labia minora, or the inner lips just around the opening of the vagina, it can also affect the labia majora, or the outer lips of the vagina. Labial enlargement can occur evenly on both sides or it may be asymmetrical. Whatever the case, labiaplasty with Dr. Karamanoukian can restore the labia to a pleasing size, enhancing patient comfort and confidence.
