Doctor :  
the average length of a women's labia is about 2.5 cms
User :   Should it show out of the lips ?
User :   Or is that fairly normal.. Just a bit conscious about it !
Doctor :   it varies form person to person.
Doctor :  
if in doubt or very conscious about it, you can get examined by a gynac and confirm the details.
User :   Is there any surgery that could shorten it ?
Doctor :   about the size and appearance of it
Doctor :  
generally surgery is not advised until you are experiencing pain or discomfort due to large labia
Doctor :  
as there nothing like "ideal labia" in women
Doctor :  
and besides the surgeries carry a lot of risks and have no benefit as such
Doctor :  
however you can consider a consultation with plastic surgeon about it.
