Any adult woman experiencing a labia minora that is too long, oversized, or misshapen may have doubts about her femininity and desirability. Such an emotional impact shouldn’t weigh on her mind when there is labiaplasty – vulva surgery – available to meet her personal needs and desires. There are many women who are facing genitalia making them frustrated and uncomfortable.
Labiaplasty and the Vaginal Opening
This surgery is sought after by numerous women who do not like the look and feel of their labia. Many adult women want to reduce the size of their labia minora – the skin flaps on both sides of the vaginal opening.
The reasons many adult women opt for Labiaplasty are:
- Hormonal changes
- Natural aging process
- Weakened vaginal muscles
- Vaginal shape and color changes
Labiaplasty is not entirely cosmetic in nature because it can treat labia discomfort and increase arousal during sexual intercourse.
Labiaplasty Procedure Alternatives
There are two approaches to labiaplasty, the choice of which will be suited to every woman’s individual needs by board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Regina Rosenthal.
The two outpatient procedures performed under local anesthesia or light sedation entail:
- The outer skin of the labia is clipped and shaped; or
- A targeted section of the labia is removed to make it less cumbersome
The goal of labiaplasty is to shorten and reshape the vaginal lips. In both procedural options, loose edges are sutured with fine, dissolvable stitches.
Labiaplasty and Vaginoplasty
Labiaplasty is distinguished from vaginoplasty – a cosmetic surgery option that tightens the vagina – making it look and feel more youthful. Vaginoplasty involves the walls of the vagina but can also address labia size concerns. The popularity of both genital procedures is growing exponentially.
A combination of both labiaplasty and vaginoplasty can result in a range of results such as:
- Tightened vagina
- Improved look, color, and shape of labia
- Increased sensitivity and heightened sexual arousal
