I’ve spoken with countless women who were seeking my help because they were unhappy with the appearance of their labia, and they were unhappy from an early age. These women were simply born with excess labial tissue. While the female body comes in all shapes and sizes, certain concerns can arise with overly large labia, such as chronic chafing, ill-fitting clothing, and a lack of confidence.
Are you curious about labiaplasty? Do you wonder if you’re a good candidate? My job as a urogynecologic surgeon is to ensure that every woman I treat has a realistic body image, along with healthy expectations from surgery. Here are a few questions to ask yourself before coming in for consultation with us.
Does your labia cause discomfort or chafing when wearing tight-fitting clothing, or any clothing?
Females who benefit the most from labiaplasty are seeking to enhance their daily comfort and quality of life. Trimming their labial skin helps their underwear, bathing suit, and exercise pants fit better.
Does the appearance of your labia make you feel self-conscious during intercourse?
It’s difficult to enjoy intimacy with your partner if you dislike your appearance or feel embarrassment because your labia look funny. I perform labiaplasty to help restore symmetry and balance to the vagina so women can feel confident about their bodies again.
Does the size of your labia result in pain during intercourse?
Every woman deserves to experience a vibrant, pain-free intimate life. Labiaplasty can help women achieve greater comfort during sex.
Whom are you seeking to please?
The only person for whom you should undergo surgery is YOU. If you are seeking labiaplasty to please a dissatisfied partner, it may be time to reconsider the relationship. I’m not a therapist, but as a husband and father, I know that your loved ones love you for who you are. If you are interested in a labiaplasty because it would help you feel better about yourself, then you may be an ideal candidate.
Labiaplasty is one of the most rewarding surgeries to perform because the satisfaction rate I witness from my patients is truly overwhelming. Women who undergo labiaplasty experience such an amazing boost in their confidence! They can finally wear bathing suits and yoga pants without feeling self-conscious! These women feel a profound sense of freedom after surgery because they can live their life without having a “hang up” on their back.
