How Does Labiaplasty Work? 3 Benefits for Sexual Wellness

Posted on July 4, 2022 by - Labiaplasty

how does labiaplasty workThe labia majora and labia minora experience changes throughout a woman’s life and might appear uneven or elongated. Genetics, natural aging, sexual intercourse and childbirth may alter these tissues, but labiaplasty with our cosmetic surgeon can restore labial shape and function. The procedure trims and contours the outer “lips” and inner flaps of skin to reduce the size and improve the labia appearance.

Some women may be embarrassed by their natural labia appearance or frustrated with changes caused by age or childbirth. The best candidates for labiaplasty are in good health and struggle with sexual dysfunction, pain or embarrassment due to their external genitalia.

Labiaplasty can improve sexual confidence and function in several ways, including:

1. Increased Sexual Pleasure

Labiaplasty reduces the size of the inner “lips” or labia minora and minimizes the clitoral hood, leaving more of the clitoris exposed during sexual intercourse. The increased clitoral stimulation leads to increased sexual pleasure after labiaplasty. However, choosing a cosmetic surgeon to perform your labiaplasty is a critical decision as this delicate tissue requires expert and detailed care in the operating and recovery rooms.

2. Less Discomfort During Intercourse

Women with excessive or long labia minora may experience discomfort or pain during sex and regular daily activities, such as exercising or wearing tight clothing. That irritation may lead to near-constant pain. Labiaplasty reduces or eliminates the discomfort associated with elongated or uneven labia majora and labia minora. Pain during intercourse is often an issue for women who experienced traumatic childbirth and need the tissues repaired to make their sexual experience pleasurable again.

3. Enhanced Self-Confidence

Feeling good about yourself in the bedroom is a crucial component of enjoying a healthy sex life. Pain and embarrassment caused by labial issues can affect a woman’s self-confidence, especially during sexual encounters. Women struggling with labial pain or embarrassed by the appearance of their external genitalia may not enjoy intercourse due to the negative feelings. The physical improvements made during labiaplasty enable women to feel sexually empowered for a more positive experience.
