Labia plastic surgery is an aesthetic plastic surgery. The goal is usual to reduce the size of the small labia (labia minora), but sometimes also the large labia (labia majora) or clitoris. Large labia minora can cause both physical and psychological discomfort for women. Larger labia can mean that women experience insufficient lubrication and therefore endure pain during intercourse. Labia increase also causes discomfort when wearing tight clothes. Aside from the physical concerns, the psychological effect of a disturbance to your sex life caused by loss of self-esteem can greatly affect overall quality of life.
The labia majora can be corrected with liposuction, fat transplantation, or surgical intervention. Labiaplasty can be performed alongside vaginoplasty if necessary. Usually healing continues for several weeks, but patients can resume day-to-day activities within 1-5 days. Sexual intercourse should be avoided for about 1-3 weeks. Once healed, scars are almost invisible.
