A woman’s body can change significantly as she gets older. With factors such as childbirth and the normal effects of age, women may become self-conscious about the look of the area around their vaginas. Skin and tissue of the labia often loses elasticity, resulting in a lax or aged appearance as well as physical discomfort. Labiaplasty is a surgery performed by our team of board certified plastic surgeons, to restore a woman’s most intimate area and renew her self-confidence.
Who Should Consider Labiaplasty Surgery?
This vaginal rejuvenation surgery is great for women who are looking to correct the physical changes to the labia caused by age or pregnancy and childbirth. However, this surgery may also be performed for younger women who are self-conscious about the external appearance of their vaginas.
Being unhappy with this area can lead to emotional problems such as low self-esteem or stress when being intimate with one’s partner. Loose skin and tissue of the labia can also cause physical pain, discomfort, or poor hygeine. Labiaplasty can help to dramatically improve both emotional and physical concerns to help women feel confident and sexy.
Expectations for Your Labiaplasty
During your consultation, you will discuss your unique concerns and expectations with one of our board certified plastic surgeons. They will work closely with you to develop a personalized plan for your labiaplasty.
Incisions for labiaplasty surgery are made within the natural contours of the surrounding area to minimize any future scar visibility. Excess skin and tissue are then removed and tightened to achieve your desired outcome.
After Your Labiaplasty
Shortly after your surgery is complete, you are able to return home under the care of a loved one. It is important to rest and limit any moving around for about four to five days as your body heals. Sex after labiaplasty should be avoided for four to six weeks to avoid any unnecessary risks or complications.
The natural-looking results of labiaplasty often have a very positive impact on women who undergo this procedure. Many of our patients speak of a life-changing boost in self-confidence, as well as improved levels of intimacy with their partners.
