Labiaplasty - Vaginal Rejuvenation
Labiaplasty, the surgical reduction of the labia minora, the inner lips of the vaginal lips, is an increasingly popular cosmetic surgery procedure. Women from their teens on often consider treatment for what can be an embarrassing condition – labia enlargement.
Women often consider the surgery to avoid embarrassment, the stigma of labial enlargement that can be seen through clothing or observed in intimate situations, for comfort, and less commonly for chafing. In some circumstances, psychosocial and functional difficulties, as well as physical discomfort, are motivations for women to undergo the procedure.
Labial enlargement may be due to hereditary congenital anomaly, due to aging, pregnancies or a variety of other causes.
The surgical goal is to reduce the size of a woman's labia minora and make them more symmetrical so they don't protrude or hang beyond the labia majora.
Women with either enlarged labia minora (inner genital lips) or majora (outer genital lips) can experience a range of cosmetic and physical side effects. Some women are unhappy with the appearance of their large labia or how they appear in clothing, while others suffer from chaffing or irritation during physical activity or sexual intercourse.
The experienced plastic surgeons at Illume Cosmetic Surgery use labiaplasty to safely change the size, shape, and appearance of a woman’s labia according to her preference.
Your Labiaplasty Surgery
Labiaplasty is a relatively minor procedure, though it is extremely important to choose an experienced surgeon who can help you achieve the most optimal results and preserve the delicate nature of the vagina. The surgeon trims excess labial tissue and recreates naturally looking labial edges with careful attention to shape and color.
Recovery from labiaplasty is actually quite comfortable and most women experience only mild swelling and little to no discomfort. Women are able to return to work in a few days and resume sexual activity in just six weeks.
Illume’s labiaplasty patients experience improved self-confidence and greater vaginal comfort after surgery. The pain and irritation of exercise or clothes rubbing against the labia are eliminated, and women report improved sexual satisfaction.
