Labiaplasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure that is done to reshape the labia (the inner parts of the ‘lips’ of the vulva). The labia is one of the most intimate parts of a woman’s body. When things begin to look out of place, it can be incredibly embarrassing. Women may avoid sexual activity because of the enlarged labia. This can affect their relationships and also cause problems when wearing bathing suits or yoga pants due to the visibility of the enlarged labia.
The problem of enlarged or out of shape labia may occur naturally or even develop after pregnancy. Whatever the reason may be, the skilled team of RemedyNow Aesthetics can help address the problem with a surgical procedure known as a labiaplasty.
Why Opt for Labiaplasty?
If you are facing problems due to enlarged or out of shape labia tissues, then a labiaplasty can be very helpful. This procedure is an excellent option for women who feel embarrassed to wear tight clothing can now wear tight pants and swimwear confidently. The primary objective of the treatment is to recontour the labia to appear more symmetrical and aesthetically pleasing. If there is a lack of symmetry between the labia minora and labia majora, it can be corrected.
The reshaping of the labia does not affect the sensitivity of the area. This ensures that a woman can enjoy intimate experiences just as before. It can help improve relationships as women who undergo the procedure experience more confidence and don’t feel embarrassed about the appearance of their intimate parts. Even though it involves surgery, it has minimal downtime and recovery is fairly quick. This makes it convenient for working women.
Good Candidates for a Labiaplasty
Prior to the procedure, a consultation at RemedyNow Aesthetics is required. Dr. Siddiqui, our experienced gynecologist will perform an initial examination and ask about your medical history to determine if you are in good health and medically fit to undergo the procedure. Smoking and taking blood thinners has to be stopped prior to the procedure.
The Labiaplasty Procedure
While it seems scary to get surgery on the intimate parts of the body, the reality is that it is a simple procedure. The procedure is done as a day surgery under local anesthesia. The entire procedure will take around 60 to 90 minutes to complete.
There are two techniques that can be used to carry out labiaplasty. They are:
Trim method: Here, an incision is made at the edge of the tissue to be treated. This incision is used to reduce the size of the labia. This procedure is even used for those who want to address the issue of discoloration of a part of the labia.
Wedge resection: If there is too much tissue in the center of the labia or if lack of symmetry is the problem, this technique is used. Instead of the edges, incisions are done in the labia contours.
Once the surgery is complete, dissolvable sutures are used to close the incision. The scars are hidden and won’t be visible. A few days’ rest is sufficient for full recovery. Sexual activity can be resumed after six weeks.
