LabiaplastyLabiaplasty is a cosmetic genital surgical procedure that will reduce the size or change the shape of the small lips on the outside of the vagina (the labia minora).

Many women are born with large or irregular labia. Others develop this condition after childbirth or with aging. The appearance of the enlarged labia can cause embarrassment with a sexual partner or loss of self esteem. Some women just want to look “prettier” like the women they see in magazines or in films.

Chronic labial irritation can sometimes develop in women who wear tight clothing. Discomfort can occur with sex, sports or other physical activities.

Labiaplasty can greatly enhance the cosmetic appearance of the outer vagina, giving many women greater confidence and self esteem. Women whose labia become irritated and painful will often find relief after surgery.

Cosmetic labiaplasty is a procedure that is becoming more common..

During this procedure the labia, the lips that are outside of the vaginal opening, are changed or reduced, or both. There are two sets of labia, the labia majora, which is the larger outermost set that can have hair, and the labia minora, the smaller set of lips closest to the vaginal opening that do not grow hair, and which cover the clitoris and urethra in addition to the opening of the vagina.

There are a number of reasons why women choose to have this surgery done. In some cases a female may be born with unusually large labia minora, or labia that are deformed or unusually shaped in some ways. In these cases a labiaplasty can restore the labia to a normal shape and size. Usually this procedure is desired because of childbirth or aging, or a combination of both these factors together. After giving birth, both sets of labia can become larger and stretched out, but especially the inner labia. Varicose veins may become apparent in the labia, giving them a dark purple color that many women consider embarrassing or unsightly. For many women large or unusual labia can lead to a loss of self confidence and self esteem, and may make sex less enjoyable because of problems feeling attractive to their partner. If the labia become large enough, they may also cover the clitoris so that sexual enjoyment and arousal is difficult. Cosmetic labiaplasty can resolve all these issues no matter what age you are, so that you look and feel attractive and enjoy a healthy and satisfying sex life with your partner.

A labioplasty can help you enjoy sex, feel confident in the way you look nude, and get rid of self esteem issues associated with unusual or large labia.

So how do you prepare yourself prior to the procedure?
First, make sure you read all of the information brochures that your surgeon gives to you. Reading these and reading articles (such as this one) demonstrates that you’re doing your homework. Researching the procedure and what you should expect will be of great benefit to you.

Never be afraid to ask your surgeon questions about labiaplasty and what you can expect. I promise you, no reputable surgeon will mind answering questions for you. In fact, most plastic surgeons I know would be shocked and concerned if you don’t have questions.

As you think of these questions, write them down so you don’t forget them. Likewise, when the surgeon answers them, write down the answers so you can digest their answers at home.

You should also prepare for your surgery by having plans for following the surgery I suggest you make arrangements well in advance for a relative or friend to pick you up following the surgery. Also ask them or other friends and family to stay available for the next couple of days This person could be your sexual partner, but if not, just make sure that it’s a calm, capable person who won’t stress out following the operation.
