Breaking the Stigma Against Labiaplasty

Lower body of a fit woman

Even though many stigmas associated with plastic surgery are starting to dissipate, stigmas regarding the discussion of sexual health and wellbeing are still as strong as ever (especially for middle-aged and older patients).

Due to these stigmas (for both plastic surgery and sexual wellness), labiaplasty isn’t a topic that many women discuss openly—so much so that some women who could truly benefit from labiaplasty don’t even know what it offers them. Who Can Benefit From Labiaplasty? How Can a Labiaplasty Benefit Me Emotionally? How Can a Labiaplasty Help Me Physically? What Causes an Enlarged Labia Minora?

Who Can Benefit From Labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty can benefit women who are unhappy with the size and appearance of their labia minora. Enlarged labia minora can be painful and uncomfortable, making normal daily activities difficult.

Additionally, enlarged labia minora can be noticeable in tight clothing. This embarrassment and shame can be detrimental to the woman’s self-esteem and mental health. A labiaplasty works to reduce the labia minora to a more comfortable, pleasing size, improving many women’s quality of life.

If you feel that the size and appearance of your labia minora are getting in the way of you living your life happily and comfortably, a labiaplasty may be right for you.

How Can a Labiaplasty Benefit Me Emotionally?

Being constantly unhappy and insecure about a part of your appearance can take a toll on your mental health. Whether you are unhappy with how your labia minora look in clothes or are insecure about how they look when you are getting intimate with a partner, we understand this is not the ideal situation.

You deserve to feel happy and confident in all aspects of your life, and a labiaplasty can help do just that. With a labiaplasty, you can feel and dress more like yourself without your labia minora getting in the way. Treat yourself to a more enjoyable life with labiaplasty surgery.

How Can a Labiaplasty Help Me Physically?

Enlarged labia minora can be uncomfortable during exercise, sex, and other daily obligations. The constant pain may cause you to avoid the parts of life you once enjoyed. You do not have to feel this way.

You deserve to live pain-free so you can enjoy all that life has to offer. Labiaplasty surgery reduces the labia minora, so that they are not long and painful, making all aspects of life more comfortable.

What Causes Enlarged Labia Minora?

Many factors out of your control can cause your labia minora to become enlarged. Some common factors include childbirth, genetics, and natural aging.

It is nothing to be ashamed of, as it happens to many women. However, because we do not talk about it enough, women often feel like they are the only ones suffering.

If you are suffering from enlarged labia minora, you are not alone, and surgery can help.
