Labiaplasty and Labial Rejuvenation
Labial and external vaginal rejuvenation procedures are excellent options for women in Naples or Fort Myers who want to restore the outward appearance of their genitalia. Labial and vaginal rejuvenation is the fastest growing segment of plastic surgery over the past several years. It is popular with women who are interested in reversing changes to the labia caused by childbirth and aging. Procedures such as labiaplasty, external labia reduction, labial puffing, and labial sculpting are some of the different types of cosmetic labial rejuvenation.
If you feel self-conscious about the appearance of your labia minora (inner lips) or you are bothered by discomfort when wearing tight-fitting clothing or while engaging in certain activities (such as biking or horseback riding), you may be a candidate for labiaplasty in Naples. To reduce the labia, excess skin and tissue will be removed and the labia will be reshaped. Some options:
- Labia Majora Reduction
In some cases, the external labia have stretched and hang in such a way that many women find unattractive. A labia majora reduction can remove this excess tissue for a more attractive appearance, usually without any visible scars.
- Labial Puff
This procedure rejuvenates the external labia majora using a combination of liposuction and fat grafting. The goal is to restore fullness to the outer labia after volume loss occurs due to aging or other factors.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Labiaplasty?
Some women are born with functional or aesthetic features of their vagina and labia that bother them. Other women see changes due to childbirth, sexual activity, or the natural aging process. These women may be candidates for cosmetic vaginal and labial surgery.
Many women who choose labial rejuvenation to treat the effects of motherhood also choose to combine their cosmetic vaginal surgery with other procedures, such as a breast lift, liposuction, BOTOX® Cosmetic , or a tummy tuck. Combining these techniques is commonly referred to as a Mommy Makeover.
Surgery and Recovery
Cosmetic labiaplasty surgery is usually performed under deep IV sedation. Each procedure is different, based on the type of surgery being performed as well as the goals and anatomy of the patient.
Patients should expect some swelling and discomfort after labiaplasty. You should plan on taking a few days off from your usual routine to relax and recover. Sex and strenuous activity typically need to be avoided for several weeks.
Labial and vaginal cosmetic surgery procedures require precise skill and delicate technique to protect this sensitive and important area, so be sure to choose a qualified, board-certified plastic surgeon.
