The are four different options: labia reduction along their entire length, or purely below the clitoris, with or without tightening the clitoral hood, with or without correcting the position of the clitoris, etc.

Correction of the labia minora above and below the clitoris, tightening and lifting of the clitoral hood, and any necessary correction of clitoral protrusion (composite reduction labiaplasty).

The area marked in dark blue is removed.

2. Correction of the labia minora above and below the clitoris, tightening of the clitoral hood, and any necessary correction of clitoral protrusion.

3. Correction of the labia minora above and below the clitoris, without targeted tightening of the clitoral hood or correction of the clitoral position.
