Lots of girls contact me online about labiaplasty surgery and each week I answer questions about the procedure on online forums such as Real Self.
So many times I hear “This is embarrasing”. Don’t be! There is no “normal” when it comes to vaginas – they come in all shapes and sizes.
Labiaplasty isn’t Embarrassing!
The ideal candidate for labiaplasty surgery is someone who is unhappy with the appearance of their vagina or who experiences discomfort during normal activities due to the shape and size of their vagina.
The most common complaint I hear is that women don’t like the appearance of large, protruding labia minor. This can be uncomfortable and lead to discomfort when exercising or during sex.
Labiaplasty can address these annoying symptoms be “trimming” the labia minor. The innder edge of the labia hides the sutures. The sutures are dissolvable. The procedure takes around an hour and it can sometimes be performed in my office based operating suite. Naturally the area is very sensitive so its not surprisingly that you will experience some discomfort after surgery. Resting, ice packs and pain relief help manage discomfort.
After the healing phase, women are happy with their results and feel more comfortable and confident. The procedure may attract a Medicare and private health fund rebate so a referral from your GP is essential if you wish to claim rebates.
