Vaginal lips are not something new, but their shape, size, and general appearance are more important to people now than ever. Why this sudden buzz? It’s because of the ability to change the appearance of your vaginal lips through a new and exciting option in the world of cosmetic surgery called labiaplasty. Performed by a highly trained cosmetic surgeon like Dr. B. Aviva Preminger at Preminger Plastic Surgery, labiaplasty can make women feel more comfortable in their own skin, and provide a newfound level of confidence. Whether you’re looking for cosmetic changes or relief to physical discomfort, there are some things to consider before deciding if labiaplasty is right for you.
What are some of the reasons to have a labiaplasty?
Some women may not always want to talk about problems they are experiencing with their vagina, but many women spend their life full of self-doubt and discomfort about that area of their body. Don’t let your doubts get the better of your happiness because there are a plethora of reasons to have labiaplasty.
If you are considering this surgery, ask yourself these questions:
- Can physically see your vaginal lips in your swimsuit or yoga pants
- Your labia is larger than what is comfortable for you
- Your labia is distended
- Your labia causes physical discomfort when you have sexual intercourse
- Your labia is a source of irritation while exercising
If you can answer yes to any of these questions, you may be a good candidate for labiaplasty. These concerns are real and valid, but there are mitigating factors to consider as well. This surgery will not help with concerns regarding sexual satisfaction. If you are concerned with aesthetic appearance and a lack of physical comfort you have important reasons to consider labiaplasty.
People won’t have to know that you had surgery
Now that you know this surgery can help you with correcting problems, you’re probably wondering about recovering from labiaplasty. The good news is that the procedure typically does not require an overnight hospital stay, as this is an outpatient procedure. You can return to work and your social life within 2-4 days, resume light exercise within about a month, and any swelling should subside within six weeks. Labiaplasty has a small risk of scarring, but it is performed in an area of the body that heals well and, more often than not, leaves no discernible trace. It’s scary to think of your labia surgery being known about, but because you have limited downtime and no hospital stay it allows for total discretion. Specific risks, side effects, and how to prepare for your surgery will be discussed during your consultation to help you decide if this procedure is right for you.
Talking about your vagina is a private matter, so rest assured this simple procedure isn’t something that should cause you any embarrassment. However, a labiaplasty can increase your confidence and daily comfort. At Preminger Plastic Surgery we understand the need for discretion when it comes to your happiness. If any of the above issues are bothering you, don’t hesitate to contact Dr. B. Aviva Preminger. As a woman and a mother, she is acutely aware of the unique needs of the female body.
