If you’re among the thousands of women who consider labiaplasty each year, you may want to know a little more about the procedure and the kinds of results you might be able to expect. Women often ask these three questions before deciding whether or not labiaplasty is a good fit for their needs.
1. What Is Labiaplasty Surgery?
Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that can improve both aesthetic and health concerns in your vaginal area by reshaping or resizing vaginal lips, or labia.
If enlarged labia cause you discomfort or embarrassment, you could be a great candidate for labiaplasty.
2. What Problems Can Labiaplasty Address?
In some cases, the size or shape of your labia can cause pain or discomfort during intercourse, exercising or while performing normal daily activities. In other instances, the appearance of large vaginal lips might put a damper on your self-esteem. In either case, labiaplasty can alleviate these symptoms and help you to feel beautiful and confident in your own skin.
Women who have had labiaplasty often find that they are also able to much more comfortably wear certain fashions from slim-fitting jeans to yoga pants, which only improves a sense of ease when going about your daily activities.
3. When Will I See My Final Results?
As with any plastic surgery procedure, you’ll need to give your body some time to rest and recuperate before being able to fully enjoy your results. Although everyone’s recovery time will vary, most women will begin to see their final results taking shape over the weeks and months after their procedure.
