Labiaplasty is a procedure to consider if you’re uncomfortable or self-conscious about extra skin that hangs. Find out: Is vagina surgery right for me?
Enlarged labia sometimes make it difficult to wear pants comfortably. This condition causes discomfort and makes women self-conscious about their appearance. It may occur after pregnancy with swelling and changes in labia volume. That being said, it can develop unrelated to pregnancy as well. Labiaplasty is where your plastic surgeon reshapes the labia minora to restore them to their proper position. The result is increased comfort and confidence in your body.
How is Labiaplasty performed?
Labiaplasty is a reshaping of the excess redundant labia minora tissue. This plastic surgery procedure does not involve any internal work on the vagina. Instead the procedure focuses on the external labia, or vaginal lips, that can hang and sag. The external labia are returned to their anatomic location. This procedure takes place while you under anesthesia and comfortably asleep.
