A common reason many women undergo labiaplasty is that they feel uncomfortable or self-conscious about the appearance of their vulva. The labia minora and the labia majora (the inner and outer lips, respectively) may have gone through some unwanted changes due to factors such as aging or pregnancy.
Labiaplasty, also known as labial rejuvenation, is a safe surgical procedure that gently reshapes the size of particularly large labia to help women feel more comfortable with their bodies. Not only can this procedure help you regain youthful labia, but it offers many health and sexual benefits.
Sexual and Health Benefits
Over time, a woman’s vagina tends to lose its shape due to many factors, including the vulva having become “too” relaxed after pregnancy, aging, and intercourse. When this occurs, some women may experience pain and discomfort during sexual intercourse or when exercising because of their large labia. Having excess or uneven labial tissue can also make a woman feel embarrassed and possibly cause hygienic issues further down the line. Labiaplasty will not only address these issues, but it can also improve your self-esteem and comfort by:
- Enhancing the appearance of your labia
- Correcting protruding inner vulva lips
- Reshaping asymmetric or irregular labia that may cause chafing and discomfort
Feel Comfortable Naked
Having enlarged labia can make some women feel self-conscious. When a woman’s vulva looks uneven or irregular, she may avoid undressing or intimacy with her significant other. This can be especially disheartening for women if their protruding labia also cause chafing or pain during sexual intercourse. With labiaplasty, many women feel more comfortable and confident in their skin and no longer feel anxious about their vaginal region.
Wear What You Like
Certain clothing can irritate larger vaginal lips, making a woman feel uncomfortable while working, exercising, or performing daily tasks. Larger labia may also be noticeable when wearing bathing suits or tight-fitting pants. Reducing the size of the labia can not only have a positive effect on a woman’s private life, but they no longer have to feel insecure about what they wear. Labiaplasty can open the door to many new clothing options that women weren’t comfortable wearing before.
