Labiaplasty, What To Expect

The Labiaplasty procedure is one that has become exceedingly popular over the last few years. While everyone’s bodies are different, there are many women who desire the option to change how they look “down there.” The appearance of the labia may cause some women to feel uncomfortable or self-conscious; additionally some women may be affected by chaffing or other discomfort. Due to this, women are confidently seeking surgical procedures to improve the look of their genital region without the topic being taboo.

So what exactly does the Labiaplasty involve? Elongated or larger vaginal lips may be the natural anatomical shape for some women or alternately may have resulted due to childbirth. The Labiaplasty procedure aims to provide a neater and more aesthetically pleasing vaginal look for women by altering the labia minor or inner lips. It focuses on the external aspects of the vagina, with the surgeon making a minor incision to remove the excess skin. Scarring is usually minimal and easily hidden within the vaginal folds.

The stitches used by the surgeons are dissolvable and pain medication will be recommended to the patient to manage discomfort levels. Slowly increasing activity levels is recommended with care after about one week.
