Labiaplasty – A Surgery for Women


Labiaplasty is a surgery that is used to make labia look symmetrical, to reduce them, or to harmonize the intimate area by reducing or reshaping them. The procedure can improve the aspect so much, that it will be extremely close to what is considered normal by most of the women.

All Women or Just Some?

The best candidates for this surgery are those women who are not comfortable with their small labia, as some bigger labia can become uncomfortable when wearing panties or other intimate lingerie. In addition, the intimate area can be seen if tighter lingerie is wanted or if the labia can make the woman refuse the sexual contact due to a discomfort.

This procedure is usually recommended to women who are past puberty, once the sexual organs are not evolving anymore. The procedure will not affect a future pregnancy or a sexual contact.

It’s a Good Change for Your Sexual Life

Even so, it won’t influence your sexual appetite, but it will make you less embarrassed to undress. Before deciding if this surgery is worth it, have a long discussion with your doctor and talk to him about your expectations for this surgery. It’s a fact that every surgical intervention has a degree of risk, so don’t overlook it.

There are thousands of labiaplasty surgeries that are made every year. When they are performed by a plastic surgeon, the results are 100% positive.

What can appear as a side effect is this: there can be some blood loss at the point of the incision or the stitch can loosen. When the side effect is an infection, it is treated with antibiotics, but you should know that this is an extremely rare post surgery complication. Keep in mind that there will always be a scar there, and it will be visible, at least for you.

Timely planning

During the initial consul, the doctor will evaluate your health and will determine what needs to be removed from the labia and reshaped, all this with your consent and approval. It’s very important to tell your surgeon if you smoke, if you are under treatment, if you take vitamins or medication.

No matter what, the surgeon must agree with you on the best possible procedure and the expected result. In addition, you need to be told about the anesthesia that he will use for you, the medical machinery and the cost for this procedure.

Getting Ready

If you smoke, it’s usual to quit it with 2 weeks before doing the surgery and at least for 2 weeks after the surgery.

When speaking about anesthesia, you need to know that there are two types of anesthesia that can be used. One is the general anesthesia and this one will make you sleep during the medical procedure. The other one is a combination of spinal anesthesia and a sleeping pill or sedative. Other surgeons can chose a local anesthesia combined with a sedative that will make you sleepy. You will be awake and alert, but your intimate area will be insensitive to pain.

The procedure lasts between 30 minutes and one hour. A complete recovery is expected after 3 to 6 months, but the scars are permanent. In addition, the sexual life can start again after at least one month after the surgery. The difference is that, this time, you will be comfortable with your body and you will be able to look yourself in the mirror and say you are beautiful.
