PLASTIC SURGERY | COSMETIC
For many women, your vaginal lips or labia can become enlarged or uneven, and the walls of your vagina can become stretched after childbirth – especially after multiple vaginal births. These changes can make your sex life less than satisfying. Not only is sexual intercourse less gratifying, the appearance of your labia can make you self-conscience. If you are not confident, or you feel awkward in intimate moments with your partner, it can start to have a negative impact on your relationship.
Vaginal rejuvenation* has become more popular over the last few years. Thanks to the Internet more and more women are becoming aware of this procedure and feel more comfortable talking about their sexual problems.
If you are considering a vaginal makeover for your lady parts, you are not alone. And you’ll be happy to know this procedure has a high satisfaction rate.
What is a Vaginal Rejuvenation or Labiaplasty?
A typical vaginal rejuvenation* consists of two separate operations, a labiaplasty and a vaginoplasty. A labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that restores the look of your labia by removing excess skin or reshaping your vaginal lips to improve the color and size. A vaginoplasty addresses the inside of your vagina. After a vaginal birth, the muscles and tissue surrounding your vagina can become stretched. A Vaginoplasty tightens up the inside of your vagina to increase sexual sensation.
Labiaplasty procedure will reshape and reduce the external appearance of your vagina. Labiaplasty is performed on the inner lips of the skin that cover the vaginal opening. This is performed to enhance a woman’s vaginal appearance and hopefully her sexual gratification.
Ideal Candidate for Labiaplasty
Labiaplasty procedures can take about one-to-three hours either under local, light sedation or even general anesthesia.
Naturally, you will feel mild to moderate discomfort with minor swelling. You will be prescribed pain medication to help. Most discomfort subsides within the first couple of days but may continue for up to several weeks.
