Is Labiaplasty Worth It for Me?

Women throughout San Diego have been learning about the pros and cons of labiaplasty for years. So what is labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure used to alter the appearance and composition of the labia. The procedure usually involves removing small sections of skin and reforming the labia to repair uneven or enlarged labia.

This can help reduce discomfort and improve the appearance of the vaginal opening. Here are a few things to consider if you are interested in labiaplasty:

Reasons to Consider the Labiaplasty Procedure

Labiaplasy is a cosmetic gynecology technique that has become prevalent for both medical and cosmetic reasons. Women often choose to undergo the procedure because they are self-conscious about the appearance of their labia if they are uneven or enlarged.

In addition, since the labia may be cut or torn during childbirth, labiaplasty may be used to repair the area and restore the appearance of the labia.

Medically speaking, labiaplasty is a good option for women who experience pain when inserting a tampon, chafing when walking, or painful sex. The added friction of enlarged labia can often cause inflammation, discomfort and pain.

If these symptoms are ongoing, labiaplasty may be medically necessary to reduce the chances of infection caused by rashes and abrasions.

While surgery is usually the last resort, we highly recommend working with a surgeon to determine whether or not labiaplasty alone will be sufficient to remedy the problem.

When to Consider Labiaplasty

The decision to go through with labiaplasty is a big one, and it's a personal one. If you are interested in the procedure due to cosmetic reasons, then your decision may be largely based on cost, effectiveness and recovery. However, if you are in need of labiaplasty for medical reasons, it is best to schedule your surgery sooner rather than later. If you are living with discomfort or unable to have sex without pain, this procedure can go a long way toward improving your health and enjoyment.
