When people think of labiaplasty, they often assume it is performed to enhance sexual pleasure and intimacy. However, this isn’t actually realistic. In truth, labiaplasty has no direct correlation to an enhanced sexual experience—it isn’t performed for that reason. While labiaplasty can help women gain self-confidence regarding the appearance of their vulva, which—in turn—can help lead to a more emotionally comfortable and fulfilling sexual experience (as confidence is key), the surgery’s benefit in that area is more emotional than it is physical.
Because of this, all women with large labia can benefit from labiaplasty, regardless of whether they are currently sexually active. Enlarged labia minora can be uncomfortable and frustrating for women regarding various aspects of life.
You should not let the fact that you are not currently sexually active stand in the way of your improving your quality of life with a labiaplasty.
What Are Some of the Benefits of Labiaplasty?
There are many non-sexual benefits to labiaplasty (the reduction of the labia minora). These benefits include:
If you have uncomfortably large labia minora, rubbing and chafing are common. Labiaplasty can help you feel comfortable in all aspects of life. Labiaplasty surgery can increase comfort during exercise and normal daily activities. For some, enlarged labia minora make everything more complicated. Even something as simple as going to the grocery store in yoga pants can be uncomfortable or even painful. Large labia can be painful during sexual intercourse as they can get caught or pinched.
With a labiaplasty performed by Dr. Alter, you can enjoy life without the constant pain and irritation from excess, hanging tissue.
With a labiaplasty, you are not only given confidence in the bedroom but confidence in almost all areas of life. Many women with enlarged labia minora are hesitant to do the things they enjoy doing, such as dating, exercising, or even going to the beach in a bikini.
With reduced labia minora, you are given the confidence to walk around proudly and live the life you want.
More Clothing Options
Enlarged labia minora can be noticeable in tight clothing, such as yoga pants and bathing suit bottoms. This often causes women to be self-conscious and not wear the clothes they want to wear. When you are not happy with your appearance in clothing, life can be challenging. After labiaplasty surgery, you may find that you have greater confidence to wear all your favorite clothes.
Am I a Candidate for Labiaplasty?
Candidates for labiaplasty are not only women who have had children and are sexually active. You may be a candidate for labiaplasty surgery if the size of your labia minora is getting in the way of your everyday life.
