Labiaplasty can often seem like a scary and uncomfortable procedure, but is it? Increased confidence in and out of the bedroom should be a top priority so that you can look and feel your best. Undergoing labiaplasty can boost your self-esteem and make you more comfortable in your own skin.
What Does Labiaplasty Do?
Do you feel like your private area is a little saggy or different than it used to be? Maybe you’ve had a few children, or the natural aging process has taken its toll. Labiaplasty reduces the outward appearance of the skin surrounding the vagina—the labia minora and labia majora. Depending on the patient, Dr. D’Souza may use liposuction to remove some of the fatty tissue to achieve a smooth contour. All incisions will be placed discreetly and will be discussed during your consultation with Dr. D’Souza.
What Should I Expect After My Surgery?
After your labiaplasty, you can expect to have a moderate recovery time. Because this is an invasive surgery, you will need to take it easy for at least one week. Heavy lifting and exercise should be avoided until you have been cleared by Dr. D’Souza. All post-operative restrictions and instructions regarding care and clothing attire will be communicated to you during your consultation when you first visit Iconic Plastic Surgery.
Your results will appear over time as the scars begin to diminish and the swelling in the treatment area subsides. You will begin to notice increased confidence that may have been lacking before. Wearing lingerie or bathing suits may become easier as your body heals and your confidence soars.
Does Labiaplasty Help With Tightening?
No, and most people get this confused. Labiaplasty does not tighten the vagina. Vaginoplasty or vaginal rejuvenation is geared toward tightening the vagina or helping with age-related issues, like urinary incontinence.
