Labiaplasty is a procedure that many women are choosing to undergo to enhance the appearance of their genital area. The labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that reduces the size of the inner lips. For many women, longer inner lips can cause a woman to feel self-conscious when wearing a thong, bikini bottoms or other revealing clothing. Prominent labia can negatively impact everyday activities; and in some cases, this condition can make sexual activity painful or unpleasant.
The Procedure: Labiaplasty
The labiaplasty procedure is performed under twilight anesthesia, combined with local anesthesia, so the patient is comfortable. The recovery period after the procedure is relatively short. The surgical procedure reduces the size of the vaginal lips by removing excess skin and tissue, which requires about one hour to perform. After the procedure, there may be 5-10 days of discomfort; full recovery typically requires about 2-3 weeks. While you will be provided with full aftercare instructions, generally will need to avoid strenuous exercise for several weeks, and avoid sexual intercourse for 4 – 6 weeks.
Benefits of Labiaplasty
For women who have overlarge inner vaginal lips, a labiaplasty can resolve the aesthetic issues, as well as make physical activities far more comfortable. Rather than avoiding wearing tight, revealing clothing, you can wear leggings, tighter shorts, swimsuits, and similar clothing options with total confidence. For women who struggle with pain, chafing, or other issues, the outcome can result in a better quality of life. Your most private area will be reduced in size, with issues such as hanging tissue resolved.
Labiaplasty: Correcting Deformities
Women who believe their vaginal lips look deformed or abnormal can undergo this procedure to correct the problem. This procedure is appropriate for women in this condition who are through puberty and are eighteen years old, or older. The various issues that can be corrected in the procedure include:
- Overlarge inner lips
- Hanging or drooping outer lips
- Discomfort in physical activities due to larger inner lips
- Sexual discomfort
- Lack of self-confidence due to appearance
