Asymmetry of the labia minora.
There are many reasons why women have enlarged labia minora, including births, aging, sexual activity and genetics.
Labiaplasty is an aesthetic manipulation in which correction of size and shape of the labia minora – the strips of tissue on both sides of the vaginal orifice, is made.
Several functional benefits of the choice of labiaplasty are known. A large number of women who suffer from enlarged labia minora have difficulties in exercising, hygiene, urinary tract infections, sexual activity and other physical activity. Besides, given the growing trend toward wearing yoga pants, workout pants and swimming costumes, the enlarged labia minora can inhibit wearing these types of clothes. Women consider these and other reasons when choosing labiaplasty.
Labiaplasty is one of the most commonly performed aesthetic surgeries to shape genitalia. Local or general anaesthesia is used. This is followed by cutting off excessive tissue and plastic recovery of the defect.
Patients can return home several hours after surgery. The labia minora may be edematous (swollen) and slightly painful. This discomfort continues for several days but it does not inhibit use of toilet. Postoperative pains are moderate and manageable with standard analgesics. Recovery of sexual function after labiaplasty takes place individually and takes 4 to 6 weeks.
Non-surgical labiaplasty is performed by setting hyaluronic acid fillerswhich are specifically designed for use in the area of female intimate body parts (the labia and vagina). In this way, rehydration, improvement of tone, shaping and correction of asymmetry of the labia minora can be achieved.
In cases of non-surgical labiaplasty, local anaesthesia is used to anaesthetize the site of manipulation. The total duration of a procedure is from 20 to 40 minutes. The durability of the results depends on the patient's individual physiological features, but usually it is between 6 months and a year.
After a procedure, no stay at the clinic is required. During the first 24 hours following a procedure, alcohol intake is to be avoided. Within 10 days following a procedure, avoiding the use of swimming pools, saunas and sports such as cycling and horse riding is recommended. Sexual life can be resumed after 5-7 days.
An individual consultation with our gynecologist is required before the procedure. The examination may include an ultrasound scan and smear. Based on the examination, an individual plan for the performance of a procedure or a combination of procedures is prepared.
