Frustrated by your c-section shelf or pooch after pregnancy? Find out what you can do about it, mom to mom, from female plastic surgeon Dr. Tannan.
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.
Is Labiaplasty is right for me?
If you notice chafing, extra trapping of moisture or difficulty in clothing and swimwear, Labiaplasty or vagina surgery is worth considering. As a woman and mother of two, Dr. Tannan understands how uncomfortable this topic can be to discuss with your plastic surgeon. Together we determine if your concerns can be addressed with this operation.
