Misconceptions About Labiaplasty

Labiaplasty is one of our most misunderstood treatments. We’ve seen the many cosmetic and medical benefits that feminine rejuvenation can offer and want to clear up these misconceptions so more women can enjoy its benefits.

Have you heard any of these labiaplasty misconceptions? Now that you know the truth about this procedure, are you ready to learn more? Get in touch and we’ll answer questions, so you can decide if this procedure is right for you.

“Labiaplasty Only Offers Cosmetic Benefits.”

Labiaplasty is often performed for cosmetic reasons, but not always. Many of our labiaplasty patients come to us, because they feel uncomfortable with their lady parts. Due to enlarged labia, they may experience discomfort when participating in activities like biking, running, horseback riding or sex. Labiaplasty can provide relief from these uncomfortable sensations. Labiaplasty can also make sexual intercourse more comfortable for some women with enlarged labia minora.

Don’t forget about the emotional benefits that cosmetic procedures can provide. Labiaplasty helps our patients to feel more confident and comfortable in intimate situations. This can improve relationships, boost self-confidence, and increase quality of life.

“Labiaplasty is Painful.”

Do you worry about pain or discomfort after labiaplasty? The female genitals are very sensitive and delicate, and many patients worry that this procedure will be painful, either during the surgery or after. This misconception keeps many women from exploring labiaplasty.

In reality, labiaplasty can reduce discomfort and pain. Enlarged labia can be very uncomfortable, impacting your ability to participate in activities and wear certain types of clothing. This procedure provides relief. We perform the surgery using either local or general anesthesia, so you won’t feel a thing during the actual procedure. Discomfort during recovery is usually minimal and patients return to work in a few days. Pain medication can be used and many patients find that over-the-counter options are sufficient.

“I’ll Lose Sensation After Labiaplasty.”

Many women don’t realize that labiaplasty can increase sensation and sexual pleasure. We offer clitoral hood reduction, a procedure that removes sensation dulling extra skin over the clitoris. Labiaplasty can also increase comfort during intercourse. Enlarged labia are a major cause of painful sexual intercourse.

“Labiaplasty is One-Size-Fits-All.”

At Restora Austin Plastic Surgery Centre, we understand that female anatomy has a lot of variation.
