The Surgery No One Talks About: Labiaplasty
Female Genital Surgery, Wyomissing, PA
Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that enhances the appearance of the vaginal area, and increasing numbers of women have been undergoing this surgery over the last decade. This simple cosmetic procedure can be performed to improve the size and shape of the inner labia (labia minora) or the outer labia (labia majora). Labiaplasty is performed on an outpatient basis using either local anesthetic or intravenous sedation, and it usually takes less than an hour to complete. After the procedure, there is very little downtime required and only minor swelling will develop.
Ideal candidates for labiaplasty are in good physical and mental health and desire this surgery for their own personal reasons rather than to live up to someone else’s ideal. Potential patients have some or all of the following conditions:
- Labia that are too long or too wide
- Labia that are asymmetrical
- Displeasing labial shape
- Pain or irritation during exercise
- Discomfort during sexual relations
- Anxiety about the appearance of their labia
Dr. Benjamin Schlechter tailors each procedure to meet the needs of his individual patients because he understands that each woman’s anatomy is different, and each woman has different aesthetic goals. This procedure can be also be performed in conjunction with other procedures, such as the Mommy Makeover.
