What is the youngest age that I should have labial reduction surgery?


A concerned patient wonders what age is best to have labial reduction surgery and whether there is a minimum age:

Dear Angelica, what is the youngest age that you would suggest having labial reduction treatment, I am 23 and have quite large inner lips that I am extremely self-conscious about but wonder if my body is still changing at this age? Thanks J.L

Dear JL
Thank you for your question - it is a good one and one that I’m often asked.
You have stopped growing at 23, so it is an age when you can consider labial reduction, however hormone changes during pregnancy and also at menopause can cause the labia to change appearance later on.
I hope this helps. Best wishes. Angelica.
