Much like breast reduction and breast augmentation surgeries, the labiaplasty is also a surgery that’s popular among women. Some women are born with labia that are larger than what’s deemed normal. This can interfere with everyday activities and cause a lot of discomfort. It could be painful and even interfere with your sex life.

Just like how having larger breasts can cause back problems, in the long run, a large labia can cause pain and discomfort on a daily basis. If this is a problem you’re suffering from, it is possible to decrease the shape and size of the labia if it becomes too problematic. This can largely impact your self-esteem and improve your quality of life. While the surgery may seem scary, it’s safe and has worked out amazingly for thousands of women worldwide.

The Labiaplasty Procedure

The reshaping of the labia allows for better sensitivity, shaping, and healing. The procedure is done by amputating the excessive outer tissue of the labia while preserving the sensitivity of the outer lip edge. It also augments and improves the shape of your labia after the excision.

Good Candidates for the Labiaplasty Surgery

You may be a candidate if you experience pain in your labia while doing normal everyday activities like exercising or riding a bike. If you feel pain during sexual intercourse, the labiaplasty might be able to help in cases like these as well.

Some women may have trouble wearing certain clothes like jeans or shorts because they’re conscious of the size of their labia. With the labiaplasty, your confidence will be restored and you will be able to wear whatever you like without any concern. Your surgeon will first evaluate your labia closely and do a complete physical examination and history of the area.

He will then bring forth your options for the treatment. As all women are shaped differently, your doctor will come to design a surgical plan especially for you. Once you’ve gone through all your concerns, fears, and doubts about the procedure with your surgeon, you can proceed with the treatment plan. It’s always important to know what’s going to happen during a surgery. Knowing everything there is to know about a surgery will give you peace of mind and decrease your stress you undergo the treatment.

Your quality of life will increase considerably after the surgery. Your confidence will be boosted and you’ll also experience a renewed sense of self-esteem. Here are some of the benefits you can look forward to:
