If an oversized labia – the inner vaginal lips – is a cause for concern for you, it is important for you to realize that you don’t have to be bothered with this or feel self-conscious about it anymore. Read on for more information about a labiaplasty, and how it can benefit you!
What is labiaplasty?
Our bodies change as we age, and the vaginal area is no different. Besides normal aging, the effects of pregnancy and childbirth can cause the skin and tissue in this area to lose elasticity and cause the labia to become oversized and stretched out. In labiaplasty, excess tissue is removed and the tissue that remains is tightened. All of this is done in a way that minimizes scarring.
What are the benefits of labiaplasty?
Perhaps the most important benefit is that a labiaplasty procedure can increase your self-confidence. If a woman is concerned that her labia is oversized, it can lead to a feeling of self-consciousness at the most intimate of times with her partner. It can make a woman feel self-conscious even when wearing a bikini or tight pants, as she may feel like lines or bulges are showing through clothing.
But there are other benefits as well. It can increase a woman’s comfort, both physically and emotionally, day to day. It can also increase sexual pleasure and reduce discomfort and pain during sex. Women with an oversized labia may find it becomes easily irritated or can even become twisted or pinched with activities such as exercising, bike riding, or other daily activities. A woman with an oversized labia can even be at a higher risk for problems such as urinary tract infections.
There is limited discomfort and pain with this procedure, and most patients can go back to normal activities within a week. However, patients should wait for about 6 weeks before having sex.
