Giving your labia a youthful appearance can be achieved with labiaplasty. A labiaplasty is usually performed to give you the youthful appearance that you desire in this area of your body and to provide comfort for various activities such as exercising and taking part in intimate relationships. Here at Bose Plastic Surgery in Chicago, we are proud to provide this procedure to our patients and encourage you to learn more about it.
When the surgery is performed, the doctor will reduce the size of the labia minora and sometimes reshape the labia majora depending on the shape that you want. After the surgery is complete, the labia minora won’t extend below the labia majora, which will prevent the uncomfortable and tugging feeling that you might have when you wear certain types of clothing or when you take part in activities that involve sitting or standing for long periods of time as well as activities where the labia is a vital part of the pleasure that is received. The surgery is performed to give an even look to the labia, improving overall comfort, aesthetic, and function.
General anesthesia or IV sedation can be used to provide comfort during the labiaplasty. Your doctor wants you to be comfortable during the surgery so that the results give you the shape that you want that will enhance your self-confidence. When your confidence level is higher and you feel better about the way that you look, then you can begin to do other things that make you happy.
The most common type of labiaplasty performed in Chicago involves trimming the extra tissue that is present after a small opening is made. The opening is sealed with little to no complications. Another option is a wedge. The natural shape of your labia is maintained. This procedure often involves removing excess folds from the hood of the clitoris as well. Sutures that dissolve are usually used in both types of labiaplasty. You should plan on avoiding sexual intercourse for a few weeks while you heal.
