The Barbie Procedure: A Novel Approach for Female Genital Beautification
September 9, 2018
Many women suffer from enlarged labia minora (the inner genital lips). Some may not like the appearance of their large, uneven or thick labia, which can sometimes extend beyond the labia majora. Others may be bothered by labial irritation while conducting normal activities, or may find it difficult to keep the labial area clean. Still others may experience pain during sexual intercourse, sports or other vigorous activities.
Large, thick or uneven labia can be an embarrassing condition to discuss with a doctor or gynecologist, but there is a procedure available to help. Labiaplasty reduces large labia or reshapes uneven labia, improving their appearance and reducing associated discomfort.
The Barbie Procedure for female genital beautification was developed by a world-renowned Turkish plastic surgeon named Doctor B (Bulent Cihantimur M.D.) This procedure rejuvenates all aspects of the female genitalia, which includes the clitoral hood, labia minora. labia majora, and the vagina.
What causes large or irregular labia?
A youthful labia majora shows some fullness, and very minimal hypertrophy of the labia minora. The labia minora is almost not discernible in the young adult (although there may be some hypertrophy in some.) Some women are born with large, thick or irregular labia. Others may develop large labia after giving birth or as they age. Whatever the cause, you do not have to live with large labia if they cause you pain or lower your confidence in yourself. If you are unhappy with the way your labia look, feel or interfere in your life, labiaplasty may be the solution you’ve been looking for.
