Labiaplasty (labia reduction & beautification is becoming more popular as social acceptance of this cosmetic and reconstructive procedure continues toward mainstream. Labia surgery, which usually involves labia reduction and vaginal rejuvenation, or tightening, are becoming as common today as other cosmetic procedures, including tummy tucks and breast augmentation. New advancements and techniques in Labiaplasty typically lessen scarring, pain, recovery time, and show excellent results in the area sometimes referred to as Vaginal Cosmetic Surgery.
Labiaplasty is for women who have a problem with large labia, asymmetric labia or related female genital issues. Labiaplasty permits the reduction of large labia (labia minora and labia majora) to reduce their outward appearance and correct misshapenness or irregularities. The number of procedures in this surgical area has been dramatically increasing. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) only recently began collecting information on vaginal rejuvenation.
Not long ago, labiaplasty was usually only performed within a select group of entertainers and performers—women such as swimsuit models, and centerfold models. But today, with the advent of more sexually permissive magazines/videos, apparel and behavior, the importance of female genitalia are much more prevalent. Most often, labiaplasty is being done for two reasons medical and aesthetic.
Medical reasons for labiaplasty (labia surgery)
Medical reasons for labiaplasty (labia surgery) include the reduction of tissue from overly large or thick labia minora that can result in constant irritation in tight pants and discomfort when engaging in sports or other physical activities. In many of these instances, women are born with large labia, others may develop this condition with childbirth or age. Surgery of the labia represents a relatively safe solution to most medical reasons.
Aesthetic reasons (beautification)
Aesthetic reasons (beautification) are largely being driven by societal evolution regarding sexual habits, wants, and expectations. This is the primary reason driving the market for genital surgery, and is chiefly responsible for the dramatic increase in labiaplasty, as women in everyday life are now demanding more options when it comes to another openly accepted, self-esteem, minor surgical procedure. Most women seek sculpting of the labia, or vaginal beautification to achieve a better look for themselves, and their sexual partner. This can include even age-related enhancement for women who are older and want a return to the youthful look they had when they were younger.
Aesthetic surgical labial reduction & beautification can greatly improve the aesthetic appearance of abnormally enlarged labia, and improve a woman’s self-esteem.
