With childbirth and age, a woman’s vaginal area can get lax and even loose some of the elasticity and appearance it previously had. Also, there are some women who are simply unhappy with the general appearance of their outer labia. Our labiaplasty and vaginoplasty procedures are designed to restore or/and enhance the vaginal region. These procedures can improve the overall appearance of the outer areas, can create symmetry of female genitalia, reduce discomfort, help restore self-esteem, solve various health issues, and can even lead to greater intimacy.
If you want to learn more about these procedures, please contact Allure Plastic Surgery by calling (212) 661-2563 in New York today.
Childbirth and the aging process may erode the natural beauty of the female genitalia especially the labia majora, labia mnora, and the perineum. An extended labia minora might interfere with sexual intercourse and exercises, and might even cause embarrassment or discomfort for some women when wearing certain type of clothes like leggings, jeans and bathing suits, which may attract unwanted attention to the bulge. Labiaplasty, also known as labia minora reduction, is a procedure that's designed to enhance the appearance of the outer female genitalia (that is, the labia majora and labia minora). The surgery can be done for cosmetic reasons, or for hygienic and functional reasons. It usually tries to correct anomalies on the shape, size or/and asymmetry of the labia. That said, it's important to note that labiaplasty isn't the same as vaginal tightening or vaginal rejuvenation. This type of surgery is done to alleviate any discomfort or/and embarrassment, and doesn't reduce the size of the female vaginal canal. However, the procedure can be performed alone, or together with vaginoplasty.
We can perform labiaplasty in our office under local anesthesia, which means that you'll be awake, but the vaginal region will be totally numb. The procedure involves reshaping the labia (that is, the lips of the vagina). Any cuts which are made during the procedure are carefully placed so as to prevent any scarring from occuring along the labia rim. The unwanted tissue(s) will be cut away, and the loose edge will be stitched using fine, dissolvable stitches which get absorbed within a couple of weeks. The procedure is ideal for improving or revising congenital conditions or anomalies, and can also help repair the genital region following an injury or disease.
You might experience mild swelling and discomfort after the procedure, however 80% of the swelling will subside within a week. The remaining swelling will subside after a few weeks. That said, it's important to note that depending on the complexity of the surgery and the suture type, full recovery might take anywhere between 5 to 8 weeks. Carefully following the post operation instructions given by our surgeons is vital to a faster recovery.
Benefits of Our Labiaplasty Surgery
Our labiaplasty surgery can increase your confidence by creating a much more compact vaginal region, if your vagina is considered to be more externally loose and visible. You will gain a properly aligned vaginal region and a reduction or shortening in the labia size, if you're unhappy with current condition of the labia. We can also correct the effects of the excessive labia skin which tends to happen following multiple child births, or loss of elasticity because of age.
If you're unhappy with the overall appearance of your genitalia, or if it's causing you discomfort and/or embarrassment, you can book in a consultation with our experienced surgeons to see how labiaplasty can help you.
Sometimes referred to as “vaginal rejuvenation,” vaginoplasty is a surgical procedure which aims to tighten up the walls of a vagina which has become loose or slack from vaginal childbirth and/or aging. The procedure does not only strengthen the vaginal muscles, but it also strengthens the tissues, whilst removing the damaged or excess lining from the vaginal canal. Vaginoplasty is actually designed to enhance and strengthen the workings of the vulva-vaginal structures.
As specialists in vaginoiplasty, we recommend the procedure when the vagina area has undergone changes following childbirth and/or from aging. Some of the undesirable changes can include, but not limited to; reduced firmness of outer labia, and reduced padding of vaginal walls and the mucosa. Our specialist surgeons can perform the procedure on the genitalia's outer areas (that is, labia minora and the pubis mound), and also on the inside. Our surgeons are always very careful when placing the incision sites in the folds of the skin where they'll be less noticeable. The sutures which are used are dissolvable and will get absorbed in a few weeks.
Our vaginoplasty procedure can take about 1 to 2 hours, and it involves removing losse excess tissues, pulling of the pelvic floor muscles much closer together, or a combination of both. The end result is usually a much tighter and restructured vagina which will provide much more friction and more pleasure during intercourse.
Recovery from the vaginoplasty surgery is relatively easy, although it does require careful organization and planning to ensure the body heals properly. After the vaginoplasty procedure, our patients can spend a few hours in our recovery room, and are then cleared to go home, provided there aren't any complications.
Benefits of Vaginoplasty
This procedure is especially effective when it comes to reversing any relaxation or looseness which has occurred because of an episiotomy, tear, or such other birth canal damage. With this procedure, women can change the way the labia, along with the surrounding vaginal tissues look, significantly reducing discomfort and embarrassment. Moroever, since our vaginoplasty procedure utiilzes internal incisions to tighten musculature, it helps increase both contraction control and strength. Consequently, this improves sexual satisfaction by basically increasing the overall amount of friction felt by both of the partners during intercourse. Having a vaginoplasty can also help if you have suffered genital prolapse, or if you have a short urethra. Our highly experienced surgeons can effectively perform both labiaplasty and vaginoplasty for the qualified candidates. The procedures can be performed together or individually, based on the particular needs of the patient along with the recommendations of our specialist surgeon.
