There is no ‘ normal’ labia. Every woman has different genitals are it’s a question for a Cosmetic surgeon “what to achieve, if there is no set normal”.
Whats accepted as normal standards are the relative positions of the 4 genital elements.
Pregnancy and childbirth – Hormones and trauma of childbirth deforms the genital aesthetics
Hormonal changes at puberty – protrude the Labia minora and clitoral hood. May casuse hypertrophied Labia majora.
Ageing and wt loss – deflates and sags the labia majora and mons Genetics
Labiaplasty – This means a reshaping of the unpleasant/ deformed Labia minora. Although done for cosmetic reasons many women report improvement in sexual function, maybe through better exposure of the clitoris.
Labia Majora Fat graft / Reduction – Deflated majora is made plump by fat grafting and trimming excess skin. Hypertrophied labia is wedge excised to normalcy
Mons plasty – Liposuction or Mons lift ( direct wedge excision) to resuspend and flatten the mons pubis area
Clitoral hood reduction – the overhanging hood is reshaped with 2 small incisions, one on either side. Clitoris remains untouched and better exposed ( not over exposed) to help sexual arousal.

Trims and excisions near sensitive and delicate tissues need to be balance very carefully. the mantra is
“ not too much and not too less, but just enough”.
