Women talk about cosmetic procedures to enhance their faces, breasts, buttocks and bodies all the time. They’re always searching for ways to look their best and give themselves a boost of self-confidence. However, there is one area that is rarely discussed. Many women experience problems with the inner and outer labia, or lips, of the vagina.
If you suffer from an excess of skin that extends from your vagina, you are not alone. It’s an embarrassing topic to discuss with a doctor, yet there is no reason that you should live in discomfort or aggravation with the excess tissue that gets in the way. Labiaplasty could be an effective solution for your problem.
What is Labiaplasty?
Labiaplasty is a cosmetic procedure that focuses on the labia minora, or inner lips, of the vagina. It may address issues with the labia majora, or outer lips, as well. The main goal of the procedure is to eliminate any excess tissue so that nothing is protruding outside of the labia majora.
After the procedure is complete, there will be a smooth opening to the vagina without any flaps of skin hanging down. Labiaplasty can be performed simply for cosmetic purposes or because you are experiencing discomfort.
Are You a Candidate?
If you find that it is uncomfortable to wear form-fitting clothing or you are self-conscious about the excess skin outside of your vagina, labiaplasty could be right for you.
Many women experience discomfort, such as dryness, chaffing and irritation because of the excess tissue that protrudes from the opening of the vagina.
Whether excess skin is getting in the way throughout your daily routine, makes you uncomfortable or causes problems in the bedroom with your partner, you should consider labiaplasty.
What to Expect
Labiaplasty will not require an overnight stay in the hospital. It is a relatively simple procedure. Our plastic surgeon will determine if you need general anesthesia, a local anesthetic or intravenous sedation.
After your procedure, you can expect a week off from work. You will need to avoid intense exercise for up to two months after your procedure.
In that period of time, you will need to avoid any disturbance to your vagina. That will mean abstinence from sexual intercourse. You also should not use tampons until your vaginal tissues have completely healed.
