Plastic surgery isn’t entirely about improving your appearance. Multiple procedures also improve your quality of life by correcting a physical deformity or abnormality that causes you discomfort or pain. An example of this is labiaplasty, which improves physical comfort by reducing the size of the labia (vaginal lips). More and more women are getting labiaplasty for improved comfort while biking, sitting, walking, wearing tight clothing, and engaging in sexual activities.
The Issues With Enlarged Labia
There is no standard size for a woman’s labia. Every woman is unique. However, certain signs may indicate that your labia are larger than ideal for you. The outer lips and external genitalia can affect how comfortable a woman feels during specific activities. If the labia are enlarged, a variety of physical activities can cause physical and emotional discomfort. Physically, enlarged labia are sensitive soft tissue that may require extra padding to prevent pinching or other pain. They may also have increased friction, which can be especially unpleasant in this delicate area. Emotionally, these issues may cause women to feel self-conscious or avoid certain activities they would otherwise happily participate in. A woman may even avoid intimate encounters if she feels they would cause her pain.
How Labiaplasty Can Help
Labiaplasty can improve comfort by reducing the size of the labia. Using a combination of specialized surgical techniques, the surgeon can trim away the excess tissue to limit their degree of protrusion. The surgeon delicately handles the tissue and can safely improve the size of the labia through this procedure to enhance your comfort and quality of life. After a short period of recovery and several weeks of healing, you will be able to return to normal activities and will notice a significant improvement in how you feel participating in activities that were previously unpleasant or painful. This will allow you to feel less restricted in the activities you choose and will enable you to live your life the way you desire. The results of labiaplasty can improve your physical comfort, self-esteem, and confidence, as well as the appearance of the labia.
