Labiaplasty (labia reduction) and other female cosmetic surgical procedures including Vaginoplasty (rejuvenation or tightening of the vagina) are becoming increasingly popular among women. Women who have a problem with large labia, asymmetric labia or other female genital issues now can have labia surgery to reduce the outward appearance of the labia (labia minora), and correct misshapenness or irregularities. As well, vaginoplasty can help women who've had multiple childbirths and seek a surgical remedy for tightening and enhancing the sensitivity of the vagina.
An enlarged vagina is frequently a problem after childbirth, especially after multiple children, or vaginal delivery of a large baby or difficult delivery. Typically, the vagina and its supporting muscles and tissues, becomes stretched and torn during childbirth, sadly, it almost never returns to its pre-pregnancy state, once normal childbirth has occurred. The specialized surgical tightening and rejuvenation of the vagina, perineum, and the supporting muscles, is vaginoplasty.
Vaginoplasty (vagina tightening) is a surgical procedure that aims to improve the tone of the vagina by tightening the vaginal muscles and supporting tissues. After childbirth, a woman's vaginal muscles may be looser & weaker due to vaginal stretching that occurs during delivery. Vaginoplasty, sometimes referred to as Vaginal Rejuvenation, is designed to tighten the vaginal muscles.
Cosmetic Labiaplasty (labia reduction surgery) involves surgically reducing and/or reshaping the female external genital structures. There are multiple reasons more and more women are requesting this procedure. They want to alleviate discomfort caused by large and/or thick labia, which often interfere with biking, working out, wearing tight fitting clothes or sexual activities.
Vaginoplasty or Labiaplasty surgery is done as an out-patient procedure and is done under general anesthetic. The operation typically takes about 1 hour. You can usually return to work 6 to 7 days after surgery. No tampons, constricting underwear, or intercourse for 6 weeks. No riding/cycling for at least 3 weeks.
