As a woman, your breasts, stomach, and thighs are not the only parts of your body that change over time. Though you may not discuss it openly, your vaginal health and appearance change as well. Due to hormonal fluctuations, childbearing, and everything in-between, your vaginal area is likely to change in ways that negatively impact your quality of life and confidence.
Fortunately, vaginal rejuvenation has become a common treatment option for women who want to improve their overall vaginal structure and regain their sense of self. There are many forms of vaginal rejuvenation available, but the most common remains the labiaplasty.
What Is a Labiaplasty?
The labia minora is composed of the inner folds of skin surrounding the vulva. When the labia minora becomes stretched or enlarged, it hangs below the hair-bearing labia majora. This causes discomfort and makes it difficult for women to exercise, wear tight clothing, and feel comfortable during intercourse. The labiaplasty procedure is designed to reduce the size of the labia minora. This alleviates discomfort, improves appearance of the bodies, and boosts self-esteem.
What to Expect During Your Labiaplasty
If you are ready undergo a labiaplasty in order to to feel comfortable and confident in your own skin, you can expect a relatively quick procedure of less than one hour using just local anesthesia. You won’t feel any pain as your plastic surgeon works to reshape that part of your body.
What to Expect After Your Labiaplasty
Recovery from a labiaplasty will likely require between two to five days off from work. Since the labia is a sensitive part of the body, you can expect mild post-op pain and discomfort. In addition to the medication provided after surgery, you can also use ice to reduce swelling. Loose-fitting underwear and clothing will also help you stay comfortable.
You can return to your daily routine after less than a week feeling significantly more confident and comfortable with your body. You will no longer experience the pulling, tugging, and chaffing that occurred before surgery, and you’ll be able to wear the clothes that you love.
