There are many reasons women of all ages have enlarged labia, including childbirth, aging, sexual activity, and genetics. Women choose to have surgery for several reasons. First, there are several functional benefits when electing for a labiaplasty. Many who suffer from enlarged labia, experience difficulty with exercise, hygiene, urinary tract infections, sexual activity, and other physical activity.
With the increasing trend of wearing yoga pants, workout pants, and swimming suits, an enlarged labium can make it difficult to wear such clothes. However, most women describe feeling extremely self-conscious when becoming romantically involved with their partners. These reasons and others are what females consider when choosing a labiaplasty.
What is LabiaPlasty?
At our specialty medical clinic, Dr. Prema Kothandaraman performs labiaplasties using the Tempsure Revival Radio Frequency system. The procedure is performed in the office using local anesthesia. By using the Tempsure Revival technology, Dr. Prema is able to achieve extremely precise cuts on the labia minora to promote faster healing and a superior aesthetic outcome. The procedure takes approximately 30 minutes and at the end of it, absorbable sutures are used to close up the surgical wounds.
What Results Can Be Expected?
The labiaplasty results in a shorter labia minora that no longer hangs below the level of the labia majora. Women will find relief from the uncomfortable twisting and tugging of their labia after the procedure. Studies show a greater than 90% satisfaction rate among women who have received labiaplasty surgery. Local anesthesia is administered to reduce discomfort and pain. General Anesthesia is not needed.
Recovery is quick and comfortable. It is best to refrain from exercise or heavy lifting for 2 weeks and avoid sexual intercourse for 4 to 6 weeks.
