What is a labiaplasty?
The labiaplasty procedure, sometimes known as vaginal rejuvenation, is a type of surgery that has the aim of reducing or reshaping the labia so that it is more symmetrical and aesthetically pleasing. Patients who undergo this procedure may do so for both cosmetic and functional reasons. Some women undergo a labiaplasty to enhance their physical and sexual comfort, while others do so to improve the size, shape and structure of their labia.
Around 10,000 labiaplasty procedures are performed each year, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that helps reduce the labia minora’s size or the skin flaps on either side of the vagina’s opening. Women typically undergo a labiaplasty procedure due to vaginal region discomfort or because they are unhappy with the appearance of their labia. Before undergoing any type of surgery, it is important to have some solid information on hand to ensure that you make the best possible decision for your health.
Goal of the labiaplasty
The goal of the labiaplasty is to reduce enlarged or loose labia and rejuvenate the region of the vulva, leading to a more aesthetically and comfortable genital area. Dr. Antún places your comfort as his highest priority throughout every step of the labiaplasty procedure. He is renowned as a highly experienced and trained cosmetic surgeon who has assisted many women in achieving the aesthetic results that they desire and deserve.
Why do women consider undergoing a labiaplasty?
Many people are unhappy with the appearance of their labia, which may grow loose or elongated following childbirth or the aging process. The surgery involves the removal of excess skin and labia restructuring to appear more symmetrical. Other women undergo a labiaplasty because they are experiencing pain or discomfort due to excess tissue and an elongated labia, which has been causing chronic irritation and hindering their normal activity.
Many women who undergo a labiaplasty are experiencing inhibited sexual pleasure due to reduced sensation. The presence of excess labial tissue causes many women to feel embarrassed and self-conscious about their condition, which leads many of them to restrict their choices of clothing. A successful labiaplasty procedure can help dramatically boost your confidence and increase your quality of life.
What can I expect during my labiaplasty?
Prior to your labiaplasty procedure, Dr. Antún will meet with you during a consultation. This is a great time for you to share your concerns and aesthetic goals with him. Based upon the information that you share with Dr. Antún, an individualized treatment plan will be developed to address your individual concerns.
The labiaplasty procedure itself is normally performed under local or general anesthesia, and can last anywhere from one to two hours. During your procedure, the doctor will trim excess tissue, allowing the labia minora to nest firmly within the labia majora. You will be gratified by having a more attractive, well proportioned and comfortable labia.
The labiaplasty surgical procedure can help:
* Create a labial appearance that is more symmetrical
* Reshape the labia area and trim an elongated labia
* Reduce pain or discomfort around the genital area
* Reduce feelings of embarrassment during sexual activity or while wearing tight-fitting clothes
What should I expect while recovering from my labiaplasty?
It is normal to experience some swelling or soreness after your surgery, which can be effectively managed using pain medication. Most patients can expect a recovery that is fast and uncomplicated. Since the vulva may be somewhat delicate while you are recovering, it is a good idea to take a week off from work to focus on your recovery.
It should help to wear loose, comfortable clothing while you are recovering, as well as avoiding vigorous physical activity. You will also be provided with a full set of post-procedure instructions, including proper surgical site care and how to take any prescribed medications.
Regular follow-up appointments will allow Dr. Antún to check on your post-operative progress and advise you when it is safe to resume your normal activities.
Would I make a good candidate for labiaplasty?
Ideal candidates for the labiaplasty procedure are women who are dissatisfied with the shape or structure of their labia. The typical patient is a woman who has a loosened or stretch labia caused by childbirth or the normal aging process. You may be a candidate for this procedure if you are experiencing genital discomfort or irritation, as well as reduced sexual activity sensation.
