Labiaplasty is a form of plastic surgery used to alter either the inner or outer labia of the vagina. Labiaplasty is performed for several reasons. Women normally are seeking ways to restore sensation, repair tissues damaged during childbirth or change the appearance of their vagina because they believe they do not fall within a normal range.
What is a Labiaplasty?
During a labiaplasty, the surgeon manipulates existing tissue or removes tissue to modify the size of the labia lips. In some cases, this is done to make the vaginal opening feel smaller, with the added goal of increasing sensitivity in the region. It should be noted that increased sensitivity is not necessarily always positive, as many women experience discomfort or pain around the sutured areas for a while after recovery as the skin and muscles stretch again.
Improving Vaginal Appearance without Surgery
Some women choose to have a labiaplasty for cosmetic reasoning only. This practice is not generally advised as there can be many negative side effects associated with surgery. Luckily, we now have amazingly effective non-surgical procedures available to us. bRenewed thermal energy vaginal rejuvenation, a groundbreaking non-surgical solution, helps stimulate collagen growth and tightens the muscles and tissue of the vagina–both internally and externally. Collagen also helps restore health to nerves naturally. With bRenewed, there is no downtime and you can resume sexual activities the same day, even sex! (In fact, we encourage it.) Patients have experienced significant improvements in vaginal tightness, enhancement of vaginal appearance and restored vaginal moisture.
Risks of Labiaplasty
Labiaplasty is a highly controversial topic. It is a complex procedure which can be used to modify the appearance of both the inner and outer labia. In addition, there is significant risk of scarring and pain. Labiaplasty is sometimes done as part of a vaginoplasty which also helps tighten up the muscles in the area. It has become increasingly popular in recent years as a means of recovering from the trauma of childbirth, but is not generally used unless absolutely necessary. Many doctors do not recommend having labiaplasty for purely cosmetic reasons as labia vary widely from woman to woman and there is no “perfect” labia. Many doctors choose to perform labiaplasty only after the woman has tried other collagen growth treatments or non-surgical procedures to avoid the risk of permanent damage.
There are now a number of other treatment options available to treat nerve damage and improve sensation. Plastic surgery should be a last resort after all other treatment options have been exhausted.
