Spotlight Series: What Is Labiaplasty?
We all strive to feel comfortable in our skin. Sometimes, however, a bothersome issue can prevent you from feeling your best. If you’re dissatisfied with your appearance due to elongated or excess labia, you may not feel as comfortable participating in certain activities. For instance, you might avoid wearing tight exercise clothing, putting on a bikini, or engaging in intimate relations with another person. Excess skin in this area can also cause physical discomfort, further inhibiting your ability to enjoy life to its fullest. Dr. James A. Matas, our board certified plastic surgeon, performs labiaplasty to help address these common concerns. In our last Spotlight Series segment, we discussed the misconceptions surrounding labiaplasty. Today, let’s talk about what the surgery is specifically designed to do.
Labiaplasty is a cosmetic procedure that is intended to reduce excess skin located on the inner labia (minora), outer labia (majora), or both. Additionally, Dr. Matas can trim the skin around the clitoral hood and contour the vulva to achieve a more youthful and aesthetically pleasing outcome. The procedure will be customized to suit your personal needs and goals. We understand that this is a delicate operation, and your comfort, discretion, and safety are our primary concerns. We encourage you to voice any questions or concerns throughout your treatment. We are here to help.
Now that you have a better understanding of what the procedure can entail, we’d like to explore candidacy requirements for labiaplasty. Are you interested in this cosmetic enhancement technique? Find out more on our next blog, “Is Labiaplasty Right for Me?”
