Am I a Good Candidate for Vaginal Rejuvenation with Labiaplasty?
Labiaplasty, or labial rejuvenation, is a cosmetic surgical procedure done to reduce the size of the labia minora and/or the labia majora. The procedure is done for women seeking relief from physical pain or discomfort, or emotional relief from feelings that these are too pronounced or unsightly; not quite as attractive as the area has the potential to be.
While there isn’t a standard size or shape for the genitalia, some patients aren’t pleased with the look of this area, such as after giving birth, and in other patients the genital area produces actual physical pain or discomfort. Because the labiaplasty is a rapid procedure that involves only minimal discomfort, it is a great address for both physical and emotional concerns.
Vaginal rejuvenation will combine a number of procedures to tighten the vagina, restore the pelvic floor and correct injuries that may have been suffered during delivery. This allows for heightened sexual stimulation and sensitivity. It would be helpful to consider that vaginal rejuvenation addresses the interior, while labiaplasty addresses the exterior.
Vaginal rejuvenation can be done as a surgical procedure or by use of laser and radio-frequency waves. It is done to treat a variety of conditions such as gaping, pain or discomfort during intercourse, urinary incontinence of vaginal dryness. A labiaplasty on the other hand, will not tighten the vagina itself, but will handle multiple aesthetic, comfort and cosmetic concerns. Most women who seek vaginal rejuvenation, have either given birth or are aging.
Women who make great candidates for a labiplasty are 18 years of age or older, with labial tears due to childbirth, or who experience vaginal discomfort while sitting, exercising or having sex, as well as women who are unhappy with the size or appearance of their labia.
Because Vaginal Rejuvenation can include a labiaplasty, or either procedure can be done on its own, the choice is ultimately the patient’s. The information above may assist in making these choices, and the patient can be closely counseled or personally advised by Dr. Wirth in private consultation. As a broad recommendation, without considering patient-specific considerations and anatomy, it is usually advisable to do both.
