The labia minora or nymphae of the vulva are two cutaneous-mucosal refolds located between the labia majora, the internal aspect of which is separated by the interlabial cleft. The enlargement of the labia minora may be attributable to several factors, most commonly congenital. Although some women require surgical reduction for functional reasons, most seek reduction of their labia minora because of psychological concerns. The authors describe a modified plastic surgery procedure for functional and aesthetic reduction of the labia minora.
