At 17 you're probably too young to start cutting away parts of your pussy. Even if you are physically ready for it, it's unlikely that you are mentally grown enough to make such a decision. As an adolescent we're concerned with things that will often seem no big deal a few years later. Emotionally we're vulnerable and a little unstable. The spikes and surges of hormones in our body influence our thoughts and feelings. They kind of drug us. In fact, adolescence is a bit like being continuously drunk, which I'm sure you agree is not the right time to make drastic decisions.
I'd say try to hold on until you are in your early twenties before thinking of amputating your labia. If at that age you're still convinced they should disappear, then so be it. In the meantime you could get the opinion of a gynecologist... and don't be afraid to go for a second one in case you get an idiot like Jenna's doctor.
