The hypertrophic labia minora presents many problems in both cosmetic and functional aspects. Local irritation, problems of personal hygiene during menses or after bowel movements, interference with sexual intercourse, and discomfort during cycling, walking, or sitting are generally accepted as indications for surgical reduction. We preserved the natural contour and anatomy of the labia minora by simply reducing its most prominent part (anterior two thirds) width through bilateral deepithelialization and primary closure of the edges with preservation of the neurovascular supply to the edges. This method is very simple and straightforward technique only the most prominent part of the tissue removed without morphologic alteration and minimal aesthetic and functional morbidity. Six patients have undergone this aesthetic procedure with excellent results without specific complications. This new technique is very simple and effective wound healing methods and can greatly enhance the patient`s confidence.
