If you’re considering labiaplasty…

See your procedure in 3dBelow-the-belt plastic surgery, including labiaplasty, is growing in popularity. Women turn to these procedures for a host of reasons. Some may be seeking relief from genital pain, while others may have cosmetic concerns about the look of their vagina. Still others may be hoping to enhance their sexual satisfaction.

Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure to trim and shape the vagina’s inner lips (labia minora), outer lips (labia majora) or both. The labia minora are the inner flaps of skin that cover the clitoris and vagina. The labia majora are the parts of the labia on the outside of the body. The labia may be elongated or asymmetrical as a result of sexual intercourse, childbirth, genetics or the aging process.

It should be noted that the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists is currently against this procedure, having stated that the risks outweigh the benefits.

Where Your Surgery Will Be Performed

A labiaplasty may be performed in Dr. Beals office-based facility, or at the Paradise Valley Cosmetic Surgery Center.

The Best Candidates For Labiaplasty

Candidates include women with enlarged inner and outer vaginal lips that cause pain or make them feel self-conscious. Long labia may cause pain during sexual intercourse, exercise or even while wearing skinny jeans. Fully developed young women and adult women who are in good health make the most appropriate candidates.
The surgery is not designed to enhance sexual pleasure or satisfaction. If your goal is to increase sexual satisfaction, talk with Dr. Beals about other procedures.

Labiaplasty is not the only type of cosmetic surgery that can be performed on the vagina. Vaginal rejuvenation, for example, involves tightening the vaginal and perineum areas, which can become stretched during childbirth. Some surgeons suggest vaginal rejuvenation increases sexual pleasure for both partners.
