Your labia are the inner and outer folds of skin surrounding your vagina. Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure in Tacoma, Federal Way, and Puyallup that alters the appearance and function of your labia.
The procedure might be done using only a local anesthetic, but general anesthesia is sometimes the better approach if you’re pursuing significant tissue alteration. While you rest comfortably, your surgeon removes excess skin and fat cells to create a more streamlined, tighter look and feel. Careful suturing closes the incision and helps minimize scarring.
While every woman is unique, this area of the body is an aesthetic concern for some. Your labia, also commonly called vaginal “lips,” go through changes as you age. The skin can begin to sag or loosen, making the area appear larger or droopy. Some women are simply born with labia that are larger than they’d prefer.
The issue isn’t always one of aesthetics. Large labia, or inner labia that extend outward, can rub against your clothing and become uncomfortable during the day. You might find certain activities painful, like running or biking.
When any part of your genitalia becomes uncomfortable, your ability to enjoy a healthy sex life can suffer. There’s no need to live with any of these effects when surgical solutions are readily available.
The most important consideration when thinking about whether to move forward with labiaplasty is whether the procedure is something you want to do for yourself. You should never feel pressured to have any procedure to conform to the desires or ideals of another. Labiaplasty is intended to help you feel more confident and comfortable.
You should expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the hours after your procedure. Plan to take five to seven days to rest and recover. After that point, you can begin to return to normal, non-strenuous activities.
You’ll receive instructions on how to properly clean the area while you heal. When you return for your follow-up visit in a week or two, your surgeon checks your healing and advises you on when you can return to full activities, including sex.
