Human sexuality is tied to how we perceive ourselves. If you are bothered by the appearance or size of your female genitalia or vulva, you may benefit from labiaplasty. Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that can improve the appearance and size of the area surrounding the vagina, most commonly the labia minora (or inner lips) but also the labia majora or mons area. This procedure can greatly improve physical comfort, enhance sexual experience, and restore your confidence and self-image.
It is common for women to have enlargement of the labia minora so that they protrude significantly beyond the outer covering of the labia majora. This could be due to childbirth, aging or just a natural variation. Symptoms of enlarged labia include chafing during exercise or walking, discomfort when biking or sitting, visibility through a bathing suit or yoga pants, or discomfort during sex. Labiaplasty can correct the disproportion so that the labia minora are shorter than the outer labia major. It can usually be performed under local anesthesia in the office with minimal discomfort. This delicate procedure has helped empower many women to embrace their bodies, strengthen self-esteem, and improve quality of life.
Many women are embarrassed about addressing this area, but Dr. Aycock will try to make the process easy and comfortable for you.
Improve Physical Comfort
If your labia are causing you physical discomfort or chronic irritation, it is time to consider labiaplasty. Resizing and reshaping the labia can eliminate chronic irritation and chafing. This procedure has helped improve quality of life for many women who experienced discomfort or embarrassment when sitting, biking, wearing tight clothing, or participating in sexual activities due to the size and/or shape of their vulva.
Enhance Sexual Experience
Feeling comfortable with your own body makes you feel sexier! If your labia are overly large, protruding, asymmetrical, or irregular, labiaplasty can enhance and refine their appearance. This procedure can create a more balanced, aesthetically pleasing, and youthful look.
