Labiaplasty Reasons to Consider

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, one of the fastest growing procedures is the labiaplasty. Labiaplasty focuses on the cosmetic and functional concerns with a woman’s vagina. So why are more and more women receiving this procedure? Here are some labiaplasty reasons to consider.

The main reason is to achieve what they believe is an aesthetically pleasing vagina. This ideal appearance varies for each patient, which makes labiaplasty a highly-personalized procedure. Depending on her particular desires and cosmetic goals, the procedure is generally performed to reduce the size of the labia minora so she feels more comfortable in her skin but may also involve reductions in the size of the clitoral hood, adjustments to the labia majora and tightening of the vaginal opening. Labiaplasty can make a woman feel a lot more confident to take her clothes off than she did beforehand because she is not worried about what her partner may think.

More common now, women are trying to look better in tight clothes, such as bathing suits or yoga pants. If they want to eliminate the worry of a camel toe appearance, labiaplasty can also help improve that. Another reason women consider labiaplasty is to reduce pain or discomfort from an enlarged labia. This discomfort can be due to clothing, intercourse or physical activity, which all can be improved after a labiaplasty. Additionally, it is reported that labiaplasty improves sexual function and desires as well.

In cases where I perform vaginal tightening with the labiaplasty (total vaginal rejuvenation), which is common for my post-partum patients, they see a significant improvement in sexual enjoyment both by themselves and their partners. This is increasingly becoming one of the central aspects of a mommy makeover (in addition to breast lift or augmentation and a tummy tuck).
