Why opt for genital surgery? Some women consider surgery to feel better in swimwear or underwear, while others may use surgery to improve confidence in the bedroom. Labiaplasty is the most common form of cosmetic genital surgery and involves reducing the size of the labia so they do not protrude. Not only does the procedure improve overall appearance of the genitals, labiaplasty gives relief from chafing and discomfort by removing excess skin. Labioplasty takes approximately 90 minutes to perform and is commonly selected by women with enlarged labia minora. Most patients prefer the effect of a ‘wedge’ or ‘triangular’ technique over trimming, which was the traditional technique used. While simpler, trimming does not produce the same aesthetic results and can leave sensitive scarring. ‘Wedging’ not only preserves the contour, colour and anatomy of the labia edge, it offers very minimal visibility of the procedure. Vaginoplasty, or vaginal tightening, is another popular cosmetic genital surgery, improving the feel and tightness of the internal area of the vagina. Rather than correct the appearance of genitalia, vaginoplasty tightens and narrows the vaginal canal to improve sexual sensation and satisfaction. Vaginoplasty is commonly considered by women who have experienced muscle weakness with age or seen stretching and “looseness” following childbirth. The surgery takes approximately one hour and a section of the vaginal lining is removed. From there, the muscles are repositioned and tightened. During the process, any tissue that has been stretched or torn during childbirth can also be corrected. Both procedures call for a few days rest and restraint from sex for six weeks. Some patients may suffer slight discomfort and pain in the first week following surgery, but can get back to work within a few days.
