According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, labiaplasty has increased in popularity. Over 12,000 procedures were performed in 2016 alone, making for a 39% increase over the previous year. While it’s great that more women are exercising their autonomy, this procedure is still unfortunately misunderstood by many. If you are wondering what advantages labiaplasty can offer, there are a lot of benefits you may not have considered previously.
While it’s true that there is no such thing as “perfect” vulva, some women are self-conscious about the appearance of their labia. This lack of confidence can cause problems in a woman’s intimate life, making her shy or even unable to be intimate. Labiaplasty could help a woman achieve the aesthetic she desires and give her more confidence in her appearance.
More Wardrobe Options
The ridges and bulges caused by long labia can severely curtail a woman’s wardrobe choices. This is especially true with form-fitting items like yoga or cycling pants and swimwear. Even if a woman doesn’t care at all about the aesthetics, tight clothing can irritate long labia and cause chafing. A simple labiaplasty procedure could reduce the length of the labia and make these options much more comfortable.
Less Discomfort During Intimacy
Some women with long labia report discomfort during intimacy, especially if the labia are being forced into the entrance of the vagina during penetration. In some cases, the labia may even tear no matter how gentle her partner. Having a labiaplasty procedure can make intercourse much more comfortable, which can increase overall satisfaction and desire.
More Comfort During Physical Activities
Activities that require a harness, such as caving, climbing or skydiving, can be incredibly uncomfortable for a woman with long labia. The harness may pinch or even tear her labia. Activities that involve sitting in a saddle, such as cycling or horseback riding, can also be extremely uncomfortable for a woman with prominent labia. A labiaplasty procedure can be used to ultimately make all of these activities much more comfortable.
