As a woman ages, it is not uncommon for their labia minora to change shape, size or even colour due to having children, genetics or other life-altering events. This, unfortunately, can negatively affect a woman’s daily life and overall vaginal health.
Dr. Bernard Beldholm with Specialist Cosmetic Surgery, however, offers an amazing solution for women who are ready to improve their quality of life. For approximately the last decade, he has been performing labiaplasty, a life-changing surgery resulting in many happy patients.
This procedure is performed by surgically removing and reshaping the labia minora on the outside of the vagina. It can be done for a solely cosmetic reasons, to fix changes from trauma or childbirth, or for women who experience labia pain during sex, sports, tight clothing or other activities.
Why women turn to us:
At Specialist Cosmetic Surgery, most of our labiaplasty patients are through with having children. They request the surgery because their labia either hangs, or appears to be too long. Some patients complain of discomfort when wearing tight undergarments. Through surgery, these women seek:
- To eliminate chafing from underwear or tight-fitting clothing
- To stop chafing during physical activities, such as bicycle or horseback riding
- To stop embarrassment during physical contact with their partner
- To stop pain during sexual intercourse
- To increase the chance for orgasm (This can be difficult to achieve when the clitoris is obstructed by large labia folds)
Is labiaplasty right for you:
If you are over 18, in physical discomfort from enlarged or deformed labia minora, or are experiencing a severe loss of self-confidence from the shape of your labia, labiaplasty surgery may be a good option for you.
If you are smoker, you will be asked to quit smoking two weeks prior to surgery. You will also be asked to avoid aspirin and multivitamins prior to surgery. Failing to do so will increase the odds for complications–something we want to obviously avoid. That’s why you should sure you are open and honest with Dr. Beldholm about your health and medications you are taking.
