Labiaplasty May Be What You’re Looking For

Women who feel good about their own bodies tend to have a lot more confidence. Most of the time, we think that it’s their abs, buttocks, or legs that cause them to feel good about themselves. However, sometimes, the problem goes into more hidden areas, and the one thing that can make you feel self-conscious about yourself is the shape of your labia.

The truth is, not many women like the shape of their labia. Some women think that their labia majora is too big. Others believe that their labia minora is sticking out too much. For the latter, labiaplasty is often performed to correct the shape. To find out more about the procedure, keep on reading to learn all the necessary details.

What Is Labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty is a procedure performed to correct the shape of your vertical lips (or labia minora). These are the folds that are closest to your clitoris and may or may not be hidden by the labia majora.

The procedure creates a more “tucked-in” appearance. For some women, it is performed for aesthetic reasons, but others do it so that they feel more comfortable in their clothing. If your inner labia are causing too much discomfort, then this may serve as a medical reason for labiaplasty.

Benefits of Labiaplasty

Labiaplasty comes with a series of benefits, including:

    1. Increased Confidence

    Most women with oversized labia frequently have self-esteem issues. For example, these women are feeling too self-conscious to wear bikinis, or tight clothes, or even be intimate with their life partners. They worry that their appearance “down there” might seem unappealing. In this case, labiaplasty surgery can make women feel more confident in their own lady parts so that they stay at ease.

    2. More Sexual Pleasure

    Aside from the self-consciousness brought by oddly shaped labia, many women also experience physical discomfort during their intimate acts. In these cases, the hanging tissue may end up getting dragged or caught, in some instances leading to pain or possibly even injury. Labiaplasty can prevent these issues from happening so that you can enjoy your sex life without having to worry.

    3. More Comfort in Wearing Your Clothing

    Very often, when you have oversized labia, it may be challenging for you to wear tight-fitting clothing. For example, if you wear a bikini, you may feel awkward about your inner lips creating visible folds underneath. If the clothing is too tight, instead of feeling sexy, you may end up feeling self-conscious. Not to mention that the pressure of the clothes on your labia can create too much physical discomfort. In this case, labiaplasty may be exactly what you are looking for when you want to wear your clothing with more ease.

    4. Better Health and Hygiene

    When you have excess tissue hanging around, it can harbor more bacteria, making it difficult to maintain good hygiene. This may put you at a higher risk of a urinary tract infection. These types of conditions are not only potentially dangerous for women, but they can also be very painful and labiaplasty can reduce their occurrence.

    5. Better Recovery After Childbirth

    When women give birth, it is very common to experience some sagging down there. For some women, it is very easy to bounce back to their old shape, but for others, things are a bit more challenging. Labiaplasty can help you obtain that mommy makeover so that you can once more feel confident in your own skin.

What to Expect From Labiaplasty Recovery?

The average labiaplasty recovery time is around three to seven days, during which Dr. D’Souza recommends you take some time off. The good news is that you will most likely not have to be admitted for this. You can take your time to recover from the comfort of your home.
During the recovery, you should make sure to avoid tight clothes in order to prevent friction. Sitz and salt baths can help you relieve the soreness. Also, since there should be no friction, you must avoid sex or tampon use for the next four to six weeks.
