Labiaplasty is a relatively short, simple procedure for sculpting and reducing the labia minora or vaginal lips. This portion of the vaginal anatomy can be quite different in both structure and appearance from one woman to the next. Moreover, the size and shape of the labia minora often changes with time, whether due to hormonal fluctuations, normal wear or significant life events, such as childbirth.
When the vaginal lips are excessively large, noticeably uneven or have an irregular shape, women can face a host of unpleasant and embarrassing functional and cosmetic issues. Fortunately, many of these problems can be resolved with a safe and simple surgery known as labiaplasty.
Why Choose Labiaplasty?
One of the most common reasons for having labiaplasty performed is to regain personal confidence, particularly when it comes to physical intimacy and maintaining intimate relationships. Every woman wants to feel good about herself, whether her clothes are off or on, and living with enlarged, misshapen or uneven vaginal lips can deliver a serious blow to a woman’s self-esteem. With labiaplasty, many women are able to gain new confidence in the bedroom.
Beyond the impressive aesthetic benefits that this surgery provides, however, there are also a number of functional improvements that cosmetic gynecological surgery can create. Women who’ve had this procedure often find that their clothes fit and feel better and that there are less problems with friction while walking or engaging in other movements. In some severe cases, labiaplasty can also make it easier for women to practice good hygiene and to avoid frequent urinary tract infections.
Prevent Sexual Discomfort
Women with enlarged vaginal lips often experience pain during sexual intercourse. Once the labia minora is reduced and reshaped, however, continued discomfort is unlikely. It’s important to note that as personal and sexual confidence increase, women will enjoy their intimate encounters far more as well.
Look and Feel Good in Clothes
Reducing the size of the labia minora will also allow for a smooth, seamless fit when wearing swimsuits, bikinis and other tight-fitting apparel. This benefit can be especially important for women who are required to wear form-fitting gear as part of their employment. Lifeguards, swim teachers and other professionals can wear essential garments comfortably and confidently after this portion of their bodies has been effectively contoured.
When to Have Labiaplasty Performed
While some women naturally have large or irregularly shaped labia minora, many develop this issue after childbirth. It is generally recommended, however, that patients wait to schedule their surgeries until after they’re done having children. This way, the results can last indefinitely and are not diminished by future pregnancies.
What to Expect During the Procedure
Labiaplasty is an outpatient procedure. Once local anesthesia has been administered, precise laser technology is used to create smaller and more symmetrical vaginal lips. Women are often able to return to work within just one week.
