DISCOVER COMFORT AND CONFIDENCE WITH OUR SAFE, PERSONALISED LABIAPLASTY
Within cosmetic genital surgery, another intervention that women often ask about is labiaplasty. What does it involve? Here are all the details about this surgical procedure.
WHAT DOES LABIAPLASTY CONSIST OF?
As you might imagine from its name, labiaplasty is a surgical procedure performed to reduce or change the size or shape of the labia minora (vaginal lips) in women.
It can be done for two reasons: aesthetics or functionality. For example, it can be performed to correct problems such as hypertrophic or asymmetrical labia. It can also be used to treat other sex-related issues, as in the case of some women who experience pain during intercourse.
In both situations, labiaplasty may be a more than recommended procedure for women. A trusted plastic surgeon should always perform it to achieve safe results.
HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU ARE SUFFERING FROM HYPERTROPHY?
One of the reasons for this procedure is to correct hypertrophy. This is an abnormal increase in the size or volume of an organ, tissue or cell in the body. Furthermore, it can be benign or malignant, depending on whether it is a non-cancerous or cancerous growth. In this case, it can affect the lips, and it is important to treat it.
How do you know if you suffer from this problem? It can be determined in several ways, for example, by measuring from the base of the lip to the edge or according to its protrusion in relation to the labia majora.
There is no standard measurement, but after undergoing surgery, it should be of sufficient size to continue to perform its function of protecting the vagina from infection and preventing mucosal dryness. It is usually left between 1 and 2 cm (labia minora are considered hypertrophic if they measure more than 5 cm or exceed the labia majora).
If in doubt, always seek the advice of a good doctor who can assess your case and determine whether it is hypertrophy or due to another problem.
HOW IS THE INTERVENTION CARRIED OUT?
The approach to labiaplasty depends on the individual patient. Mainly, it can be done under local or general anaesthesia.
In the procedure, the surgeon makes incisions in the labia minora to remove excess tissue. The edges of the incision are sewn together and shaped to the desired labia minora. In this simple way, the problem can be corrected.
Recovery time varies from patient to patient, as each procedure differs. In general, we are talking about a few weeks of recovery. Sexual intercourse should also be avoided during this time.
In any case, the surgeon’s instructions should be followed to reduce the risk of possible complications and to speed up recovery.
Why might I need a labiaplasty?
Every woman has her reasons for deciding to undergo this cosmetic genital surgery. Some women do it mainly for aesthetic reasons because they suffer from hypertrophy or because they suffer from pain during sexual intercourse.
Some women experience pain during normal daily activities, such as irritation in the area when exercising or cycling. Even some items of clothing can cause minor mucosal erosions.
Even women who wear tight-fitting clothes or swimming trunks find their lips more noticeable than usual, affecting their self-esteem.
Discussing it with your gynaecologist or a medical professional is essential: It can be solved. You can enjoy sex normally again, without pain.
WHAT IS THE RECOMMENDED AGE FOR THIS INTERVENTION?
The age at which a person can undergo labiaplasty varies from case to case. It is generally recommended to wait until the labia minora have reached their adult size and shape before considering surgery. This is achieved in adolescents or young women. Not recommended for children under 18 years of age.
If surgery is being considered, it is essential to discuss it with the surgeon first so that an individualised assessment and recommendation can be made.
Are the results permanent?
Although a priori the results are permanent, the reality is that certain factors may influence their appearance over time. For example, ageing or the passage of time.
It is also essential to have realistic expectations of the results and understand that once surgery has been performed, you cannot return to the way you were before.
