Reasons to get Labiaplasty
The reasons to get a labiaplasty usually stem from cosmetic, hygienic, and comfort issues that women experience either due to the aging process, genetics, or other factors. Some of the reasons women choose to undergo a labiaplasty include:
With larger labia there is the potential for chronic discomfort during certain activities such as strenuous exercise, sexual intercourse, or even while walking. Pinching and chafing of the labia during these activities can lead women to seek to have their labia reduced to enhance daily comfort.
Excess labia skin
An excess of labia skin can add discomfort during exercise but can also interfere with intercourse or be a source of embarrassment for some women. Excess labia skin can hang low enough beyond the vulva that they interfere with simple activities such as walking and can prevent women from feeling comfortable while wearing tight-fighting clothes or swimsuits. Having the skin of the labia reduced allows for greater comfort during activities and boosts self-confidence.
There are also situations where women have undergone a labiaplasty and now require a correction due to unsatisfactory results. Due to Dr. Placik’s vast experience performing labiaplasty procedures he is often sought out to correct surgeries that have been performed by other surgeons. Reasons for a labiplasty revision could be that the results from the initial surgery were uneven or that the patient is unhappy with the results.
A labiaplasty does not only have to involve surgery performed solely on the labia but can include other aspects of the vulva. Such procedures that could be performed during a labiaplasty would be a clitoral hood reduction or liposuction of excess fat on the mons pubis.
Resolving the issues “downstairs” can increase vaginal hygiene and comfort, and it can also help you feel more confident about the appearance of the area, along with all of its intricate and delicate parts.
