When Is the Best Time to Get Labiaplasty?

Labia have different shapes, so there isn’t really such a thing as an “abnormal-length labium.” However, some labia can cause discomfort when you move or wear a bikini.

For this reason, the demand for labiaplasty has increased significantly over the past decade. If the shape of your labia causes you physical or psychological discomfort, you might want to consider getting labiaplasty. It can correct the shape of your labia, improving your quality of life. Read our blog and find out whether or not it is time to get this procedure!

What Is Labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty is a procedure that addresses the shape, size, and symmetry of the labia, which is the outward skin surrounding your vagina. Women who have excess labia minora or majora skin can experience discomfort or embarrassment due to the larger tissue size, causing them to try and address the matter surgically.
Depending on the labial area, the procedure can remove excess tissue or use liposuction to reduce fat. The latter is often employed for the labia majora, creating a smoother contour.

Signs It’s Time to Get Labiaplasty

There will be some signs telling you that you should schedule a labiaplasty consultation with Dr. D’Souza, including:

1. You’re Feeling Self-Conscious

Many women who believe they have oddly shaped labia might feel self-conscious, preventing them from enjoying their lives. A woman who thinks her labia are unattractive might not feel comfortable engaging in sexual activities with her partner, keeping her private parts hidden. If this is your case and you want to regain your confidence in your own body, then it might be time for you to get labiaplasty.

2. You’ve Suffered Some Kind of Trauma or Injury

Certain events like childbirth, accidents, or other events can lead to injury of the labia. When this happens, the shape of the labia might become asymmetric, causing physical and emotional discomfort. If you’ve experienced such trauma to the labia and the injury did not heal as it should have, then it might be time to get a labiaplasty and bring that area back to its original shape. Bear in mind that you should avoid getting labiaplasty right after pregnancy, as Dr. D’Souza recommends you wait at least three to six months for this procedure.

3. You’re Feeling Discomfort Wearing Tight Clothes

Tight clothing, especially skinny jeans, remains popular among women, with most wearing the pieces to show off their curves. The problem is that abnormally large labia, especially the labia minora, can lead to discomfort when wearing these clothes. The chaffing and friction can cause irritation. In this case, labiaplasty can reduce excess skin, making it more comfortable for you to wear your favorite outfits.

4. You Are Feeling Discomfort During Intercourse

Enlarged labia can also make intercourse uncomfortable, as the excess skin might get caught in places where it should not. When this occurs, it might become difficult for you to enjoy or feel satisfaction during the activity, as the focus is placed on the pain. In this situation, you can undergo labiaplasty to reduce the skin that often gets caught, overall improving your sexual life.

5. You Are Experiencing Daily Discomfort

Your clothes or sexual endeavors might not be the only activities that cause discomfort in your private area. Daily activities like exercising or merely riding a bike can make you uncomfortable. This is another good reason to get labiaplasty and reduce the extra skin prone to friction. This will make it easier for you to enjoy your daily activities.
