What is Labiaplasty?
Labiaplasty, or labia reduction surgery, is a specialized form of plastic surgery performed on adult women that rids patients of excess skin while re-sculpting the labia minora. The procedure is a safe and simple cosmetic solution typically performed in the comfort of the doctor’s office and using only local anesthesia. A labial reduction can be especially beneficial in cases where aging or pregnancy has contributed to stretching and sagging of the skin in the labia minora.
Who Should Consider Labiaplasty?
Although it may be difficult to discuss, many women experience discomfort, pain, or embarrassment during sexual activity due to loose skin in the labia minora that may interfere with normal sexual function. For some women, wearing tight panties or swimsuits may be uncomfortable because of excessive loose, flaccid skin in the labia minora that prevents a smooth body contour. Labiaplasty may alleviate this situation, restoring comfort and confidence by eliminating all that excess skin and re-sculpting the labia minora to a shape that will not cause interference during sexual activity or when wearing tight undergarments.
Will Labiaplasty Detract From My Sexual Pleasure?
No, in fact, many women report increased sensitivity and enhanced pleasure after labia reduction! While you will have to abstain from sexual activity for several weeks immediately following your surgery, you may resume normal sexual activity gradually after you recover fully. The scars from the labiaplasty procedure are nearly invisible and typically camouflaged within the labia’s natural folds and creases. Many women report that after a labiaplasty procedure they experienced improved sensitivity in the labia and easier access to the clitoris, enhancing their overall sexual experiences. You may also choose to trim back the clitoral hood and increase sensitivity in the clitoral area.
What Can I Expect After A Labiaplasty Procedure?
We recommend that you plan to take one week off from work in order to rest optimally and recover fully.
While the procedure is relatively comfortable, many women experience a bit of soreness and swelling immediately after the surgery. These symptoms typically diminish naturally within about two weeks, though you may continue to experience minor swelling for up to six weeks.
You may also be prescribed a daily sitz bath with Epsom salts to help alleviate discomfort during the initial week. An inflatable donut cushion will help you to sit more comfortably, and naturally, you must abstain from sex completely for four weeks, gradually resuming regular sexual activity after that time.
The results of every procedure will vary, but after about a month, you will likely be fully healed and ready to experience the full benefits of the procedure, such as increased comfort and enhanced sexual sensitivity.
