The Labiaplasty Procedure Explained
Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure performed to change the shape of the inner labia (the skin on either side of the vagina). In some cases the outer labia may also be trimmed.
Many women opt for the procedure for aesthetic reasons, but also to correct certain problems. For example, when the labia sustains damage in childbirth or if the labia are large and causing infections or pain. The labia is still developing in girls under the age of 18, and for that reason, labioplasty is usually not performed on those patients. Local or general anesthesia is given before the operation.
Who is a Good Candidate for Labiaplasty?
Plastic surgeons recommend Labiaplasty for women who are uncomfortable with the shape of their labia, as in the case of:
- women whose labia has a defect of some kind
- women who want to reverse the effects of childbirth on their labia
- to reduce a large labia, especially if it’s causing urinary tract infections (UTIs), or painful intercourse
Labiaplasty surgeries often have positive psychological benefits for women who are self-conscious about the appearance of their genitalia. Women with severe cases also frequently report decreased pain or discomfort with daily activity and sexual intercourse after the procedure.
The surgery is done on an outpatient basis (no need to be hospitalized), and you should plan on being out of work for 3-5 days, on average.
