If the inner pudendal lips (lesser lips of pudendum) in a woman are too long and therefore protrude too much from the greater lips of pudendum) this can cause a problem for the person concerned.
The problems associated with this condition may occur when cycling or wearing tight jeans which may chafe at the seam and cause swelling of the pudendal lips. The women concerned no longer want to present themselves naked to their partners. This means that too long lesser pudendal lips or lesser pudendal lips of different sizes may lead to physical and psychological problems. Because of these medical and/or aesthetic reasons, an increasing number of women are deciding to have their lesser pudendal lips reduced. It is a small surgical procedure with a great effect. At Sophienklinik this surgery is performed sensitively by a woman, the medical director of the clinic, Dr. med. Annette Kotzur.
Reduction of the pudendal lips is a relatively small surgical procedure which is performed under twilight-sleep at Sophienklinik. During the 30-minute operation, the excessively long lesser pudendal lips are removed; the stitching is done with absorbable sutures.
Thanks to the gentle procedure the patient recovers very quickly. There may be post-operative swelling of the labia. This is why I normally recommend several daily hip baths during the first week after treatment. After one week healing has advanced enough and no further treatment is necessary or impairment to be expected.
