Labiaplasty has a long history rooted in medical tradition. From correcting congenital birth defects to sex change surgeries, labiaplasty is a recognized procedure that has become mainstream in cosmetic surgery. Women that are unhappy with the appearance of their vagina can reach out to a surgeon and find out how they can rejuvenate their most sensitive region. Regardless if the decision to undergo a labiaplasty is based on childbirth issues or purely aesthetic reasons, there’s a procedure for you.
This procedure may go under different names. Edge resection helps removes the wrinkles in the outer labia, giving a smooth and ‘perfect’ appearance. This procedure has an advantage over many as the scars are easily hidden in the hood of the clitoris, if thee clitoral hood will be re contoured. Darkened skin can be removed, allowing the natural skin tone to reach all areas of the labia.
This procedure involves removing excess skin from the hood of the clitoris. This excess skin can interfere with sexual satisfaction. When the skin is removed it can also help the labia close fully which may allow patients to be more satisfied with how their vulva appears. The skin may be sutured to the pubic bone in the mid line of the vulva, this allows the surgeon to avoid the nerves in the area.
Some women feel as if they lose their natural tightness after giving childbirth. Some clinics refer to the vaginal tightening procedures are a ‘Mom Package’. Packages may include a tummy tuck, vaginal rejuvenation, and skin resurfacing. Tightening of the vagina is done surgically when exercises do not give the results a patient is looking for. Some procedures may also allow a woman to take her vagina back to a pre-sexual time, even a new hymen can be rebuilt.
Women can usually return home after the surgery though some surgeons admit their patients to a hospital for one to two days post-op. This is to allow the area to heal and for any problems to be caught early on. There are risks of hematoma (bruising) to occur, sometimes extensively.
After the surgery women are instructed to avoid using tampons until the area has fully healed. For vaginal tightening this is especially important as the use of tampons can irritate the lining of the vagina. Tight clothing is also advised against, at least until the incisions have healed. There will usually be some swelling, for sensitive patients it may be a good idea to wear skirts. Bleeding after surgery is minimal, though some women may like to wear a pad to avoid blood stains on their clothing or to reduce irritation from clothing.
There are critics of labiaplasty. The idea they propose is that media has caused the surge in labiaplasty. Self image has always been an important part of humanity. Self esteem is lifted when we feel good about ourselves, no matter how we choose to pursue our own idea of perfection. The choice to pursue labiaplasty is best left the patient and her surgeon.Tweet
