Although it is not talked about often, several women have concerns about the shape and size of their labia, which can make them feel less confident. Board-certified gynecologists Dr. Robert Pearl wants to help Coral Springs, FL women feel more comfortable and attractive through vaginal revitalization surgery to normalize the size and shape of the labia. The labia (the external lips of the vaginal area) may look oversized or have loose skin created by genetics, pregnancy, childbirth, or a physical trauma. A labiaplasty is a surgery that reduces the size of the labia minora and/or majora for a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. This could eliminate discomfort and irritation while boosting confidence and sexual pleasure. Schedule a consultation at Pearl GYN Aesthetic Gynecology in Coral Springs, FL to learn more about the benefits of a labiaplasty and find out if you are a candidate for the procedure.
A labiaplasty at Pearl GYN Aesthetic Gynecology may be helpful for women who are worried about the shape and size of their vaginal area, which can be abnormal due to genetics, childbirth, or trauma. Abnormal vaginal lips may cause pain, discomfort, itching, or irritation during physical activities like exercise and sex. A labiaplasty may also help if you do not feel comfortable wearing revealing outfits (including swimsuits, leggings, or yoga pants) because of the size of your vaginal lips. While a labiaplasty should not affect pregnancy, Dr. Pearl suggests you wait until you are done having children to avoid altering your results.
A labiaplasty is performed under some form of anesthesia that will be discussed during your consultation. Dr. Pearl will discuss these options and time estimates so you can make any needed arrangements before your procedure. A labiaplasty is generally performed with a trimming technique to cut away loose tissue, then the remaining skin is sutured together. Another technique is the wedge procedure that cuts away a pie-shaped piece of tissue and extra folds from the clitoral hood before suturing the tissue closed. The length of the surgery may vary from patient to patient depending on the extent of the procedure.
What to Expect
You will require about a week to recover after your labiaplasty to allow swelling and discomfort to reduce before returning to work. Dr. Pearl recommends applying ice packs or cold compresses as needed to decrease swelling. You can not use tampons or have sexual activity for 4 – 6 weeks after your treatment. Patients typically have visible improvements in about six weeks with final results closer to six months after surgery. The results of a labiaplasty usually last for a long time, but weight fluctuations, natural aging, and childbirth may alter results.
