Many women are born with irregular or large labia while other women develop this undesirable cosmetic issue later on in life. Enlarged labia can cause a woman to feel self-conscious while spending time with a male partner, which can result in a loss of self-esteem. Some women are not terribly self-conscious about enlarged labia and just want to look prettier. Chronic labial irritation can occur when a woman routinely wears very tight clothing, and it can cause discomfort during physical activities, sports, and sexual intercourse. There is a procedure that can help correct these issues.
Labiaplasty is capable of improving the appearance of your vaginal area. It’s a cosmetic procedure and used to change the shape or size of the small lips that are located on the outside of the vagina. For many women, labiaplasty can improve the appearance of the outer vagina, which can greatly increase self-confidence.
Should You Consider This Procedure?
If you want to improve the appearance of your vaginal area, then you might want to consider this procedure. If you experience constant discomfort from enlarged labia, then labiaplasty could be very beneficial for you. Many women consider this procedure because they just want to look prettier. If you are self-conscious about the current appearance of your vaginal area, this procedure can help.
How Labiaplasty Is Performed
There are two types of methods that can be used during the procedure, the wedge or trim method. Both techniques involve some amount of trimming, but the exact type of method that is used depends on your unique anatomy. The trim method involves a single, continuous incision. The procedure is performed while the patient is under general anesthesia.
Benefits of the Labiaplasty Procedure
Uneven or large vaginal lips can cause many problems. Most women do not want to have large vaginal lips, which is why they seek this procedure. However, some women like their labial size but have a problem with the shape. Either of these issues can arise after childbirth, or they can occur as results of the aging process. Women who have large labia can experience moderate discomfort while wearing tight pants or swimsuits. This is an especially frustrating problem for female lifeguards.
One of the top benefits of the procedure is improved cosmetic appearance. However, the procedure can also provide functional benefits because it can eliminate the discomfort experienced while wearing tight clothing. For some women, the problem is severe enough to interfere with daily activities. A typical labiaplasty procedure can take anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes to complete. Downtime usually is no longer than a few days.
