This surgery directly excises the redundant thick and darkened skin at the lateral margin of the labia minora (rim) and trims and adjusts the shape of the labia based on the patient’s requirements. The advantages of edge resection include a substantial removal of the loose labial skin to tighten the labial appearance and effectively improve labial laxity or rugosity and mostly excise the hyper-pigmented or darkened skin to make the pink-like labial tissues visible or indirectly lighten the labial, which concurrently improves the labial size and color. It is indicated for patients with congenital labial hypertrophy or labia minora laxity, aging hypertrophy, and darkening due to pregnancy or labor. The disadvantage of this technique is that a light scar may be left at the lateral margin of the labia. Besides, an adequate labial skin at the base should be maintained during the surgery to prevent excess reduction and thus eliminate its original protective functions. In addition, the shape and size of the bilateral labia should be carefully trimmed to avoid asymmetry.
