Labiaplasty is a type of plastic surgery that is considered elective. It can address any excess tissue that you may have extending beyond the outer part of your vagina. Problems with the inner lips of your vagina can be extremely uncomfortable. Your plastic surgeon can trim away or tuck in the excess skin so that you no longer have to deal with the discomfort. Many women deal with tissue that protrudes from the inner part of the vagina. Labiaplasty can help you to resolve the problem.
How Can Labiaplasty Help You?
If you have extra tissue and skin that bulges outside of your vagina, it can rub against your clothing all the time, making you extremely uncomfortable. The tissue can become pinched when you sit down. You may also find that it is embarrassing when you try to wear clothing that is form fitting, only to see the bulge of excess tissue from your vagina. Many women are self-conscious when dealing with this problem. It can get in the way of pleasure during intimate moments as well. When you choose to have this procedure, you can eliminate this problem. You’ll be comfortable no matter what you wear. You can also gain confidence in how you feel about this intimate part of your body.
What Can You Expect During Labiaplasty?
Your doctor will evaluate your vagina and determine how much must be removed in order to keep your inner lips tucked within the outer lips. Once it is time for your procedure, you will be given intravenous sedation that is combined with a local anesthetic in your vagina or you could have general anesthesia. The next step will be to eliminate excess tissue that has been bothering you. All of the tissue may be removed or a wedge of tissue may be trimmed away in order to improve the shape of your labia minora.
You will have some swelling and discomfort after your procedure. It can be treated with over-the-counter pain relievers and an ice pack. You can expect to go back to work in about a week. It is important to note you will need to wait to have intercourse for at least a month. You may need to wait six weeks. You should not use a tampon for that length of time as well. Once you have healed, you will love the difference your procedure has made in your life.
