Aunt Vadge: I hate the look of my labia

A pretty woman looks at herself in the mirror, assessing herself.

Dear Aunt Vadge,

I have flappy “roast beef” looking vagina and bad odor…… how do I fix it?



Hi Unhappy,

‘Flappy roast beef’ sounds like the type of language a teenage boy would use to describe a beautiful, voluptuous labia such as yours, and I would encourage you to read this article – A serious chat about your flaps – and to check out the labia library.

The inner labia​1​ has LOADS of nerve endings that are solely for sexual pleasure and protection​2​, so just think carefully before committing to any alterations! 

Let’s say you’re concerned about the appearance of your labia. Perhaps they have stretched or are changing as you age. You may like to visit a cosmetic dermatologist to get a laser/radiofrequency treatment called the Juliet or Thermiva, or similar device, for assessment for non-surgical tissue tightening.

Look for ‘non-surgical laser, ultrasound or radiofrequency vaginal treatments’, and you should see a few options. Keep in mind the difference between the vagina and vulva when you’re seeking this type of treatment, and beware it can be a little pricey. 

The bad smell we can help with. Download and read Killing BV, get yourself a Juno test (get US$20 off at Juno checkout with this link) and get started on some restorative treatments that suit your circumstance.

If you feel overwhelmed, book a Quickie appointment with Simone Jeffries. She’s brilliant and will be able to help you. 

If you want to get started on a treatment, try the Lactulose and Probiotic Kit as per the QR code directions on the label, and get in touch with any questions.
