Over the past five years, labiaplasty procedures have grown by more than 50% in the United States, with almost 13,000 performed in 2018. This relatively simple surgical procedure is helping more and more women regain confidence and comfort in their genitalia, not to mention give them a boost in their sex lives.
At Cosmetic Surgery Center, we offer a full array of procedures that help you achieve your cosmetic goals from head to toe. From more outward fixes, like a facelift, to more intimate corrections, like a labiaplasty, women in Oklahoma City are realizing their dreams through our surgical services.
If you’d like to explore why a labiaplasty is one of the fastest-growing cosmetic procedures, here’s what it’s all about and why it might provide you with the solution you’ve been looking for.
A labiaplasty is designed to correct issues in your labia minora, which is part of your external genitalia. There are many reasons why women seek to have this tissue altered, and it largely boils down to comfort and appearance.
One of the biggest issues when it comes to a changing landscape in your genitalia is childbirth. If delivery has left your labia minora sagging uncomfortably, getting twisted in your underwear or bathing suit, and even interfering with intercourse, a labiaplasty is designed to correct this.
Aging also leads to lax vaginal tissue, thanks to a loss of collagen and elastin, and we can correct the issue by shortening the length of your labia minora.
For some women, the problem is simply one they’re born with. Perhaps your labia minora has always been large or uneven, and you’d like to reduce the interference of this excess tissue, enabling you to wear clothes more comfortably and securely, and even enjoy intercouse more.
Whatever the issue is with your external genitalia, the odds are good that we can correct the problem with labiaplasty.
A labiaplasty is a fairly simple procedure in which we trim and remove the excess tissue in your labia minora. We can also use a technique in which we remove a wedge-shaped piece of the tissue to shorten the overall length of your labia minora.
In addition to altering the labia minora, we can also remove excess tissue in your clitoral hood or reduce the size of your mons (the area under your pubic hair).
Once we’re done with the procedure, we suture the area and send you home on the same day with complete aftercare instructions. You should count on taking it easy for a day or two, and be mindful of keeping the surgical site clean until the area is fully healed. You’ll also need to steer clear of tampons and intercourse for 4-6 weeks following your labiaplasty.
