Woman in blueWhile women easily share frustrations over hairstyles or relationship woes, some problems feel too embarrassing to discuss openly even among the closest of friends. The truth is, even the most awkward of issues are typically more common than most women realize, and can often be improved through cosmetic gynecology.

Tissue Prominence or Protrusion

Women commonly present to our office with concerns of excessive protrusion of the labia minora beyond the labia majora. They report being self-conscious and have developed habits to conceal the prominent labial tissue, which tends to become thicker and darker with repeated irritation from friction. Concerns with mechanical blockage during sexual intimacy may even result in a desire to avoid sexual encounters.

These patients are often relieved to know that labia minora reduction or labiaplasty is an option to address their concerns. Clearly, this is a highly individualized aspect of sexual function and the surgery is not indicated for the majority of individuals but for those seeking the surgery, there is a high degree of satisfaction. If you’ve been concerned with excessively large labia minora, labiaplasty can trim down overly prominent labia for a more discreet look both in and out of your workout clothes. And for those with a particularly large clitoral hood, the clitoral hood reduction is another complementary procedure often performed in combination with labiaplasty.

Feeling Loose

Although the vaginal muscles should be elastic enough to give birth and return to their pre-childbirth state of firmness, this ideal outcome isn’t always the case for every woman. During vaginal rejuvenation (vaginoplasty), the internal musculature of the vagina and vaginal opening (introitus) can be tightened again. Not only can vaginal rejuvenation resolve the troubling feeling of vaginal looseness, but can also improve sexual sensation for both you and your partner.

Camel Toe

The subject of many a comedy sketch, a prominent “camel toe” can keep women away from the gym, beach or anyplace where slim-fitting clothing is a prerequisite. Mons pubis liposuction slims down the fatty mound just above the vaginal cleft, while labia majora reduction may diminish the excessive fullness of the outer lips.
