What is labiaplasty?
Labia reduction, inner lip reduction, labia minora reduction, nymphoplasty, or vaginal rejuvenation. Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that focuses on reshaping and correcting the labia that women feel uncomfortable with. It is a straightforward procedure that should require 2-4 week healing duration.
In addition to reducing the size of labia for aesthetic reasons, a labiaplasty may also be done to repair the labia after injury, childbirth, or illness. A hoodectomy which is used to expose the clitoris can also be performed during the labiaplasty procedure.
Labiaplasty can now be performed in a day surgery and can be completed from start to finish usually between an hour to an hour and a half.
Labiaplasty is done while the patient is under local anesthesia, so the patient will feel completely comfortable and at ease during the entirety of the procedure. Post surgery, patients may experience some swelling and mild discomfort, however these are both typically gone after two weeks. Soon after surgery you should be able to perform many of your routine daily duties. However, full recovery requires up to 4 weeks.
Many women around the world feel that the shape and size of their labia impacts on the way that they lead a normal life. Large labia may cause functional symptoms such as pain when labia rubs against clothing during exercise or just general walking. Pain during sexual intercourse can also be very distressing. Following the the initial healing discomfort of labiaplasty, some patients report that their sex lives have improved. Labiaplasty is fast becoming a popular choice for women looking for relief of these discomforts. Many women seek labiaplasty to simply improve the aesthetic appearance of this very intimate part of the body. The resulting enhanced post labiaplasty appearance can give a major boost in self confidence and quality of life.
