Between 1013 and 2014, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery saw a 40% surge in a procedure known as the labiaplasty. What is it? It’s a cosmetic treatment to reshape excessive skin of the labia minora (inner lips) so that they don’t protrude outside or past your labia major (outer lips.)
Why is it Such a Big Deal?
Most women find that they have trouble wearing clothes like yoga pants, a swimsuit, or even their favorite pair of jeans without feeling uncomfortable down there because of the excess skin. Not only that, but it adds to the dreaded “camel toe” when you’re in that extra snug set of leggings that you wear shopping around town.
If you’re embarrassed about the size of your labia during (or after) that next Brazilian wax - then a labiaplasty might be right for you.
What is a Labiaplasty?
During a labiaplasty, Dr. Agullo removes excessive skin from the labia minor that may be deflated, enlarged, or protruded. It brings the inner lips just behind the labia major, so that they don’t extend past the outer lips. In fact, we may even add some volume to the labia major through the use of fat grafting or fat harvesting from other areas, like your abdomen or inner thighs. The results enhance the aesthetics of your vaginal area, and help it to appear more youthful.
The actual procedure can be done right here in our El Paso office, with local anesthesia. It takes about an hour to an hour and a half to complete it from start to finish.
Confidence in Your Favorite Clothes
After your procedure, it will be easier to wear tight-fitting clothing like yoga pants or a bikini without having to worry about the excessive vaginal tissues getting pinched, rubbed, or looking unsightly.
Many women prefer not to wear undergarments under their yoga pants or leggings, because of unsightly lines. Or, line-free undergarments cause uncomfortable rubbing and pinching because the labial tissues are enlarged. Having Dr. Agullo make adjustments to refine the shape of your vagina to a more pleasing form can give you the freedom to wear any of your clothes without discomfort or self-consciousness.
Some of Dr. Agullo’s patients also report increased pleasure during intercourse, due to the reshaping of the vaginal tissues. He may recommend vaginal plastic surgery if you have scar tissues left over after childbirth, experience painful intercourse, or to adjust the clitoral hood for improved satisfaction with your partner.
Part of Your Mommy Makeover
Many women have naturally enlarged labia, while others seem to experience challenges with it after having children - as childbirth typically causes changes or misshapen tissues. That’s just one reason why vaginal cosmetic surgery is such a popular topic of discussion during our mommy-makeover consultation sessions!
