Labiaplasty is a revolutionary procedure that has recently grown in popularity.
There are many reasons labiaplasty is on the rise: The most notable is the increase in comfort many women report experiencing after undergoing the procedure.
What is Labiaplasty?
Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure in which the labia minora and/or the labia majora are sculpted and reshaped. Often the goal is to reduce the size of the labia and create more labial asymmetry.
This procedure typically takes less than an hour and the recovery time is minimal, but it’s recommended to hold off on any significant lower body exercises for several weeks. The labia are very sensitive structures, so it is important to choose an experienced plastic surgeon like Drs. Bruno and Brown. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons further explains the procedure.
Top Three Reasons More Women are Choosing Labiaplasty
- Comfort: After surgery, many women often experience increased comfort during athletic activities such as cycling or horseback riding. Also, there is typically a decrease in irritation from tight clothing like yoga pants or bathing suits. Reducing the length of the labia prevents it from being twisted or tugged on by tight clothing or irritated by rigorous workouts.
- Appearance: Over time the appearance of the labia can change dramatically particularly after undergoing significant life events such as childbirth. Labiaplasty allows women to reshape their labia to increase self-confidence, aesthetic appeal, and create a more youthful look.
- Increased sexual pleasure: After surgery, there is often an increase in sexual pleasure as excessively large labia can cause pain during intercourse or even lead to sexual avoidance due to the anticipated pain of intercourse. Additionally, the clitoris can become more exposed leading to an increase in sexual pleasure.
