Why Should You Get a Labiaplasty?
- Posted on: Nov 30 2023
A labiaplasty is a plastic surgery that can alter the size, shape, and even the color of the labia minora. The procedure is growing in popularity; from 2020 to 2021, the number of labiaplasties in the U.S. increased by 36 percent. Worldwide, from 2015 to 2020, the percentage increased 73 percent.
Despite this growing popularity, many still do not know about the benefits of labiaplasty. Aside from cosmetic benefits, there are functional issues that a labiaplasty can address. Here are a few of the most common reasons to undergo a labiaplasty.
Trouble with Clothes
Depending on the shape of the labia minora, certain tight-fitting clothes, such as yoga pants and some jeans, can cause discomfort or distress. Physical discomfort and irritation, in some cases, can lead to a rash or skin conditions.
Difficulty with Exercise
Sometimes, the labia may be subject to twisting, pinching, or tugging during exercise. In this case, a labiaplasty can help minimize the issue and allow for pain-free exercise.
Distress During Intercourse
Those who have undergone labiaplasties have sometimes referred to troubles during intercourse as a reason for having the procedure. If there is friction on the labia during intercourse, you could be subject to pain and discomfort.
Changes After Pregnancy
Pregnancy can cause a lot of physical changes to the body. One of these is alterations to the labia minora. For those looking for something to address the cosmetic changes to their body, a labiaplasty can help.
It should be noted that your doctor may suggest waiting on getting a labiaplasty if you plan on becoming pregnant. Future pregnancies can affect the labia minora and potentially undo or alter the labiaplasty results.
