The only organs created for joy are the genital organs. A successful procedure would boost the pleasure. On the other hand, a botched surgery can make you suffer for the rest of your life. 

Inner lips are vaginal extensions, or elongations of the vagina to the outside world. It protects the vaginal area from dirt and aids in the retention of vaginal moisture. The inner lips’ shape and texture provide both aesthetic and functional satisfaction.

Your sexual health is directly related to the right surgeries you received. Dr. Ebru Ünal is one of the best doctors who performs labiaplasty with precise attention and successful outcomes.


What is the normal size of the inner lips?

The labia minora should not exceed labia majora. It is considered normal that the inner lips are usually 2 cm in length.


Inner lips are different in length and thickness from woman to woman. Long inner lips, darker skin at the edge of the inner lips, protruding from the vulva, or having an asymmetrical size and structure of both lips may cause aesthetic concerns in women. The size of the labia minora is often accompanied by the size of the root of the clitoris.  This creates aesthetic anxiety and reduces self-confidence in women, as well as reduces the pleasure of sex.



What do you feel if your inner lips are big/hypertrophic?


More than %10 of all women complain about the size and related symptoms of the inner lips. Itching, difficulty in cleaning the vulva and inner lips, frequent vaginal infection, contact dermatitis related to the frequent friction to the underwear, pain during sex and decreased self esteem are the symptoms women frequently report.
