Boost Sexual Confidence, While Enhancing Labia Appearance and Comfort
Labiaplasty is not something every woman is thinking about, but for some women, they think about it a lot. The size and appearance of their labia is causing a lot is distress. I have taken care of some young women who have been distressed for years before they finally come in for a consultation. Many had no idea that there was something that could be done.
The size and appearance of the labia varies a lot and some women have fairly large labia and don't seem very bothered, while some feel like they are constantly bulging and hanging in the way. It's not very different from women who want a breast reduction. They just want to feel more comfortable with themselves and how they feel in their clothes and swimsuits.
Along with alleviating irritation and intimacy issues, our goal during labiaplasty is to carefully sculpt the labia so they appear pretty and natural-looking. It is very important for you to have an idea of what you want in terms of your result. Some women just want their labia smaller and some want them to be essentially removed. There are different techniques that can be used and we want to make sure you are happy and have the result that you desire. Following the procedure, most gain the sexual confidence they lost or never had due to the appearance of their labia before the procedure.
Your anatomy, and your desired outcome will determine to use either laser or non-laser labiaplasty and which surgical technique. We strive to preserve the natural contour and pigmentation of the labia with minimal scarring, while maintaining sensation – producing the most natural results, and in some cases, women want to reduce as much as possible.
Who May Benefit From a Labiaplasty Procedure?
If uneven or protruding labia cause labial pain and irritation (especially when riding a bike, motorcycle, horse, etc.), challenges during intercourse and/or a bulge that is visible through tight clothing – you may be a good candidate for labiaplasty.
Some women also experience more sexual satisfaction and sensation due the reduction in labial tissue, as well as enhanced self-confidence.
You may also consider labiaplasty to correct darker areas of labial skin due to hormonal changes or genetic factors. Patients typically request a pink, smooth labia appearance.
During your consultation you will speak with Dr. Pettigrew directly, and she will answer any questions you may have regarding labiaplasty surgery itself, labiaplasty recovery time, medications and how to eliminate any potential post-surgical complications.
