As a woman, your vagina goes through serious changes throughout your lifetime. It’s a topic that may embarrass you. You may find it difficult to discuss any problems that you may be having in that area, but you are not alone.
Childbirth and the changes that occur as menopause approaches can make you downright uncomfortable as the tissues of the vagina become stretched, dry, and loose. This especially holds true when it comes to the labia, or lips of the vagina. The labia minor, or inner lips, and the labia major, or outer lips, may lose their elasticity over time.
You may find that you have an excess of tissue that gets in the way. One of the biggest problems can be the impact on your sexual confidence. You can resolve this problem with labiaplasty.
What is Labiaplasty?
Labiaplasty is a cosmetic procedure that involves the reduction of the labia of your vagina. Our surgeon will target the area of concern whether it is the labia minor, the labia major, or both. Our surgeon’s goal will be to reduce the size of your labia to improve your comfort and restore confidence in yourself.
When you opt for labiaplasty, you can stop worrying when you wear formfitting clothing. You’ll no longer have to worry about chafing and irritation. If there is an issue with the symmetry of your labia, our surgeon can address this problem as well.
What to Expect During a Labiaplasty Procedure
Labiaplasty is an outpatient procedure, which means you will be in and out within a matter of hours. Our surgeon will do everything necessary to ensure your comfort during the procedure. Using surgical tools, any excess tissue on the labia will be trimmed away.
Once you are cleared to go home, you can expect some discomfort and swelling. Be sure to follow all of the surgeon’s recommendations, including time off from work immediately following your procedure.
You will need to avoid sexual intercourse as the delicate tissues of your vagina heal after your procedure. Our surgeon will recommend the length of time that you should wait, but you may need to plan on a general rule of three weeks. Within a month following your procedure, you should be ready to go back to your normal routine.
