Abstract

As aesthetic labial reduction is becoming a more common practice, it is necessary to look at the state of the science, what we know, and, more importantly, what we do not know about this practice. This article reviews the literature to date on labial reduction and describes the concerns related to the lack of understanding of the outcomes associated with this procedure.
