You see your gynecologist and your regular physician on an annual basis. As you run through your check-up, everything looks fine. However, there is one problem that you have been reluctant to talk about. You have excess skin and it gets in the way at the opening of your vagina. If you have issues with your labia minor, or the inner lips, and your labia major, also called the outer lips, you are not the only one.
Many women struggle with this issue, and it can really be uncomfortable. When you have too much tissue hanging in this sensitive area, it can become irritated all of the time. Chaffing and dryness are typical problems, as well.
While many women simply don’t like the way it feels, especially in tight clothing, there is also the possibility of problems during intercourse. You can enhance your sexual confidence with a procedure known as labiaplasty.
When you think of plastic surgery, breast implants and facelifts are at the top of the list. However, labiaplasty might be one of the best-kept secrets when it comes to cosmetic procedures. Our plastic surgeon will take care of any extra tissue or skin that is causing problems with your labia.
Once the excess has been trimmed away, you can say goodbye to the irritation that has been plaguing you for too long. The procedure can make a considerable difference when it comes to intercourse, as well. Imagine how much better it will feel to have a smooth opening without anything to get in the way.
What Happens During a Procedure?
Our plastic surgeon will schedule your outpatient surgery for labiaplasty. You can expect to be medicated prior to the procedure. You and our doctor can discuss which alternative makes the most sense for you.
At that point, our surgeon will address any issues with your labia, removing excess skin and tissue so that you will no longer experience discomfort or embarrassment.
After your procedure, you will be given care instructions and medication. Recovery at home generally takes a week before you can resume your normal schedule. You will need to avoid strenuous exercise for at least a month.
During that time, you should also refrain from sexual intercourse. You should not wear tampons for a month to six weeks either as you allow the delicate tissues in the vaginal area to heal completely.
