Labiaplasty is life-changing (to be accurate, quality-of-life-changing) for women! The goals of a labiaplasty are to remove excess, redundant labia minor tissue so that a woman feels more comfortable in her skin, with a ‘prettier,’ neater, and tidier external genital area. Most women are thrilled to wear yoga pants free of their prior self-consciousness, they are more comfortable standing naked in front of others without their labia peeking out for others to see, and their physical discomfort is gone!
The majority of tissue removed during a labiaplasty is low-hanging, more darkly pigmented, and irregularly textured (cobble-like texture) labia minora tissue—the inner lips of the outer vagina area. We leave the smoother, lighter pink upper mucosa that provides lubrication and prevents friction to the external genitalia. However, sometimes extra puffy labia majora tissue (from the outer lips) is removed, as well. Lastly, extra folds of skin that drape over the ‘clitoral hood’ are often trimmed to produce a neater appearance to the front of this area.
Whether you seek labiaplasty for functional or cosmetic reasons, the procedure has proven to make a dramatic impact on many of our female patients’ lives. Our Labiaplasty surgeon works closely with those interested in labiaplasty to determine if the procedure is right for them, as well as to inform them of what they can expect throughout the process. The surgery holds numerous advantages to the right candidates, providing long-lasting relief from the discomfort and embarrassment that many women experience.
By altering the shape and/or size of the anatomy within the vulva region, you can look forward to the following benefits:
- Less prominence in the appearance of the female genitalia
- Decreased pain or discomfort from wearing tighter-fitting garments
- Reduction in chafing and pinching sensations
- Less discomfort and embarrassment during sexual intimacy
- Improved confidence by minimising self-consciousness
