The condition of your vagina is extremely personal, but it can have a major impact on your life. This especially holds true if you have issues with the size of your vaginal lips, whether your labia major, otherwise known as the outer lips or labia minor, referred to as the inner lips, are affected. You may have an excess of tissue that can become irritated, causes you discomfort, gets in the way when you are wearing certain items of clothing or your sexual confidence may be undermined. Your problems with the shape and size of your vaginal lips may be connected to both the inner and outer labia. Regardless of which area is affected, labiaplasty can help you.
What is Labiaplasty?
Labiaplasty is a cosmetic procedure that is designed to address an excess of tissues or skin in the labia. A variety of surgical tools may be used to trim away extra tissue, whether a scalpel, special scissors, or a laser is used for the most effective results. Stitches that are dissolvable are used to close incisions to avoid the need for their removal at a later date. Once the surgery is completed, and your vaginal area is fully healed, you will no longer have to deal with the genital discomfort associated with an excessive amount of tissue that can become raw as it rubs against your clothing. You are likely to find your sexual satisfaction to be enhanced as well when you are no longer self-conscious about the appearance of your vagina. Also, you’ll have more confidence when you are no longer worried that pain is going to get in the way of your pleasure.
What to Expect During Labiaplasty
Your labiaplasty procedure will be performed in a relatively brief procedure that should take no more than two hours, and you will be allowed to go home on the same day. In most cases, only a local anesthetic is used. Before the procedure, you should not have sexual intercourse and should avoid any medications that can cause bleeding. Your surgeon will make incisions as needed to trim your labia to a more appealing size. After your procedure is completed, you will need to follow your surgeon’s recommendations. Sexual intercourse is not advised for the first month following your procedure. You should not wear a tampon for two weeks after your surgery. Extreme exercise and lifting of heavy objects should be avoided for at least three weeks after your procedure.
