All about Labiaplasty surgery

Undergoing Labiaplasty in Sydney

Are you interested in undergoing labiaplasty in Sydney? Although it’s not as popular as a cosmetic surgical operation, such a procedure remains true to the idea behind any cosmetic surgical operation which is the freedom to change or improve just about any issue one has with regards to his/her body. In the case of labiaplasty or vaginoplasty in Sydney, women can be bothered by the appearance of their genitalia. For one thing, the genital folds may be enlarged or protrudes too much which is a genital condition known as “protuberant labia” and can be serious enough to affect a woman’s self-confidence.

This is especially true for women who prefer to wear tight clothes or sexy swim wear in which the condition can be fairly apparent. In some cases such conditions can also cause pain and discomfort when engaging in sexual activity. Labiaplasty can be defined as a specialised vaginal cosmetic surgery operation aimed at improving the appearance of the labia on the female genitalia by reducing the size of the external folds as well as the surrounding tissues on the vagina. The operation is often done in conjunction with vaginal tightening surgery for a firmer and more attractive appearance. The said operation can be performed for physical or medical reasons (sometimes both).

Considering vaginal cosmetic surgery

Now while some people might think that undergoing procedures like labiaplasty in Sydney hardly makes any sense, one has to consider that the main point of undergoing any cosmetic surgical operation is to allow an individual the opportunity to feel better about themselves physically, emotionally and psychologically. Women can also opt for the procedure to treat vaginal injury or disease which some women may experience during child birth.

Labiaplasty in Sydney is performed by cosmetic surgeons as a minor operation on an outpatient basis. It essentially revolves around the removal of excess skin on the vagina’s labia and “sewing” down any protrusions. In the hands of an experienced and skilled labiaplasty surgeon, results can be highly desirable with no visible scarring.

What are the risks and post-surgery considerations?

Of course labiaplasty in Sydney is not without its risks which are no different from any other surgical procedure – infection, excessive scarring, excessive bleeding, etc. The best way to mitigate such risks is to opt for the services of an accomplished and reputable plastic surgeon that has performed the said operation numerous times with safe and highly desirable results. You can certainly expect nothing less out our very own Dr Tavakoli! Call us today on 1300 368 107 to book a consultation! Now following the operation, it is normal for patients to experience some pain and discomfort which can last several days. Pain medications may be prescribed by your surgeon to better manage the discomfort and patients are typically able to resume light activities less than a day after although you might want to avoid doing anything too strenuous and refrain from any sexual activity for at least 3 weeks after undergoing labiaplasty in Sydney.
