You are struggling with a private problem. You do not like to talk about it with your doctor, but you feel like you are at your wit’s end. You need to do something about the flaps of skin that are hanging down from your vagina. They are referred to as the labia. There is no “right” way for a vagina to look, especially after going through something like childbirth. Age affects the way the labia looks as well. If you are unhappy with an overly large or asymmetrical labia, you may be a good candidate for labiaplasty at Bose Plastic Surgery in Tampa, FL.
Labiaplasty is a cosmetic procedure that can be performed by your plastic surgeon to eliminate excess skin drooping from your vagina. Your surgeon may simply trim away the excess tissue or a small wedge of skin may be removed. This will allow your plastic surgeon to stitch the tissue in such a way that it will have the appealing shape you would prefer.
Are You a Good Candidate for Labiaplasty?
If you have noticed problems with your vaginal tissue since you had a baby or since you’ve aged, you may want to consider labiaplasty. A natural delivery puts a great deal of strain on your vaginal tissues. It stretches them out to the point that they may not snap back. Labiaplasty can correct the problem. If you have always had excess tissue drooping from your vagina or your labia minora are not symmetrical, your plastic surgeon has the skills to shape your vaginal tissue. Labiaplasty is often recommended for women who experience irritation when the skin from the labia minora rubs against their clothing. If you are suffering from chafed skin or you are self-conscious about bulges of tissue that keep you from wearing anything that is formfitting, consider labiaplasty.
What is the First Step to Labiaplasty?
At your consultation you will find out what steps your surgeon will take to correct your vaginal tissue. Once your procedure is over, you will need to give yourself time to recover. Follow your surgeon’s instructions. You will need to plan on time off from work. A week is typically enough to address the discomfort and swelling that is typical after this type of procedure. While you are recovering, you should avoid putting tampons in your vagina for up to six weeks. You will also need to refrain from sexual intimacy for that amount of time while the delicate tissues of your vagina have time to heal.
