Body confidence plays a key role in libido. The more confident you are in yourself and the way you look, the more likely you are to feel sexual, energized, and ready to be intimate with your partner. Many women struggle with body confidence in the area of their body that matters most for sexuality – the labia. From genetics, pregnancy, disease, injury, and more, the labia can become malformed and misshapen, and for many women that appearance can cause such a confidence issue that they are almost afraid to have others see them in intimate settings.
Labiaplasty in Orange County, Newport Beach, Irvine, Santa Ana, and More.
Plastic Surgery is designed to specifically address areas of the body that cause body confidence problems, no matter where they may be, and one of the procedures that can provide a great deal of additional body confidence is labiaplasty, or labia reduction.
Labiaplasty is for women that have struggled with the look of their labia, the flaps of skin that protect the vulva and the vagina. Though labia come in all shapes and sizes, some women struggle with a labia that is too external, “wavy,” or abnormal, and want their labia to look cleaner and more youthful. Many women also get labiaplasty to improve their sexual function, and many more combine it with a clitoral hood reduction to create aesthetically cleaner and more beautiful genitalia.
Things to Know About Labiaplasty
The procedure is very popular. As many as 95% of those that have undergone labiaplasty report positive results and the total number of procedures has increased by 44%. Though general anesthesia options are available, labiaplasty is normally completed with local anesthesia, so the patient remains awake throughout the entire process. Most patients are able to go home that same day, although some prefer to opt for longer care.
Labiaplasty involves carefully creating incisions along the curves of the labia so that the incisions are well hidden and then reshaping the labia to the desired look. There are several options of labiaplasty available, including:
The choice depends on the doctor’s preference, the shapes of the labia, and the final look that you and your doctor are hoping to achieve.
Labiaplasty may not be right for those struggling with a gynecological disease, smokers, and those that are choosing the procedure for the wrong reasons. That is why it is important to have a consultation with your doctor before you decide if labiaplasty is right for you.
