When should I consider labiaplasty?
- Posted on: Dec 15 2019
The vaginal area is as unique to each individual woman as fingerprints. The labia and surrounding tissues form the vaginal area that gives life. However, many women experience problems and concerns with their vaginal area. This includes larger labia skin that can impact their day-to-day life. Additionally, other women may feel self-conscious about the appearance of their vaginal area and may consider surgical procedures to make the area more symmetrical and pleasing to the eye. Whatever the reason, labiaplasty procedures can assist.
What is a labiaplasty?
Labiaplasty is a specialized procedure that is used to reduce or change the size and shape of the labia of the vagina. The labia includes the labia minor and the labia majora that cover the vaginal canal. In some women, the labia may be long or large. This can cause rubbing, irritation, and chafing while wearing clothes. It may also impact the way a woman looks when she is wearing a bathing suit.
Why consider labiaplasty?
Some women are self-conscious about the appearance of their vaginal area and may have labiaplasty done specifically for cosmetic purposes. Women who have larger labia and are bothered by them every day may want to have the procedure done to help them feel more comfortable, especially when participant in certain physical activities. Changing the size and shape of the labia may also impact sexual satisfaction in women, as less skin and tissue is rubbing in the area.
