All about Labiaplasty as a Cosmetic Surgical Procedure

Are you interested in undergoing a labiaplasty operation? Women all desire to be beautiful not only for themselves but also the people that they care about. Of course there’s more to beauty than having an attractive figure or a beautiful face – the state and appearance of a woman’s vagina can be a part of such desires as well.  Reasons for wanting to get the procedure done can range from sexual discomfort/displeasure and the inability to wear certain types of clothing.

Regardless of what actually compelled you to strike an interest on labiaplasty or similar operations like vaginoplasty surgery, it is important to learn all that you can about such procedures just as it is with any other cosmetic surgical operation.

An overview on undergoing labiaplasty in Australia

As a cosmetic surgical procedure, labiaplasty in Australia refers to the surgical reduction and reshaping of a woman’s labia (the lips on the vagina). The said procedure is not to be confused with vaginoplasty (vaginal tightening in Sydney) as it is actually a different procedure with a totally different purpose.

Now the shape and size of the labia naturally varies and rarely presents a problem among women. However some women may have protruding or extremely long labia which can adversely affect the appearance of the female genitalia. Needless to say, such conditions can lead to embarrassment and significant lack of self-confidence particularly when it comes to doing anything intimate. If that sounds a lot like you then labiaplasty is certainly an effective and reasonably safe solution that you can look into!

Again the primary goal of labiaplasty is to reduce the size of the labia by surgically removing excess skin and shaping it into a more youthful and attractive form. The procedure typically takes around an hour to finish and often requires no overnight stay in a hospital unless the plastic surgeon says otherwise.  Following the operation, patients will have to don a panty liner and loose underwear for around 14 days to minimise discomfort and reduce the risk of any complications. Needless to say, patients who’ve just undergone labiaplasty are to refrain from any sexual activity for about 6 weeks.

Just as it is with any surgical procedure, undergoing labiaplasty is not without its risks – infection, excessive bleeding, scarring, etc. However such risks can be described as minimal especially when opting for the services of a proven and reputable plastic surgeon. You can certainly expect nothing less out of Dr Tavakoli and his team of cosmetic surgical experts.
