Throughout each stage of life a woman’s body is constantly changing. The natural aging process is not so forgiving when it comes to our skin. This is also true when it comes to the vaginal tissue. Aging, childbirth, and other factors can cause the feminine region to become loose, asymmetrical, and even cause uncomfortable symptoms. Thankfully, the professionals at David & Rossi Plastic Surgery in San Diego & La Jolla, California offer specialized labiaplasty to help you reclaim your intimacy.
What Is A Labiaplasty?
Labiaplasty is a customizable procedure that treats the labia minora and occasionally the labia majora. The process involves correcting the labia minora, which are the inner lips of the vaginal region. Overtime, as the body naturally begins to lose collagen and elastin, it can cause the tissue around the vaginal area to lose its firmness and elasticity. A Labiaplasty is effective at improving this by removing the excess or loose tissue from the labia minora. The results are a more youthful appearance and improved functionality and tightness. Also, If needed, tissue can be removed from the clitoral hood. This is effective at providing a more neat, youthful, and aesthetically pleasing appearance.
A labiaplasty can offer a range of benefits including:
- Decrease the size of the labia for a younger-looking appearance
- Create symmetry
- Alleviate discomfort or pain from twisting and tugging of the labia during certain activities such as exercising or sexual intercourse
- Improve congenital conditions
- Less prominence in appearance
- Decreases self-consciousness
- Long-term results
What To Expect
Like with any aesthetic procedure, an initial consultation is first required in order to create a treatment plan that is tailored to you and your specific needs. The operation may be performed under local anesthesia, with oral sedation, or under general anesthesia in order to ensure optimal patient comfort during and following the procedure.
During the labiaplasty, the excess and loose tissue is removed, and the remaining tissue is repositioned – allowing the lips of the labia minora to stay tucked within the labia majora. The recovery process is minimal. Most women are able to return to work after a few days to a week, and can resume many of their normal activities after three weeks. With this personalized procedure, you can reclaim your femininity without the expected downtime!
There are different reasons women undergo this procedure. Labiaplasty can address these reasons and help you feel more confident with your femininity.
