Labia reduction or labiaplasty is nowadays quite a popular surgery among women who wish to reduce the size of their labia minora. Labiaplasty helps reduce the size of the protruding labia minora, so they can be comfortable with their sexual lives.
Women in general tend to have long labia minora that are the inner vagina lips, which if protruding, are quite dominant as the labia majora, which are the outer vaginal lips. in order to feel comfortable about their private parts, women nowadays opt for labiaplasty or labia reduction, as we know to deal with any such inconsistency seen in the labia minora.
Due to any deformity or inconsistency that women see in the size of the labia minora, women feel that the best solution in hand is labia reduction surgery. Taking into account the cosmetic reasons that they have to opt for labiaplasty, is the wish to have a confidence boost to sexual life and diminish all inhibitions that hurdle constraining any sexual pleasure. the main aspect these women are concerned with is the resizing of the labia minora, so that they do not protrude out the labia majora making them feel uncomfortable or conscious of their private part.
What cosmetic surgeons stated about the women preferring to opt for labia reduction most commonly has been their consciousness and anxiety towards their sexual life due to their labia minora deformity. however, it has been noticed that there are medical reasons affiliated with labiaplasty.
For example, some relate to a vague pain during sexual intercourse, some refrain from wearing a certain type of clothing, some avoid doing exercises like swimming, biking or running, as they rub against the labia minora while others experience hygiene-related problems since protruding labia has more moisture and that results in yeast infections.
In order to deal with this effectively, labiaplasty can be considered as the safest solution. there are women whose labia gets damaged or slightly injured during childbirth or even because of an accident. at times, pigmentation can also be a problem where the color variation on the edges of the labia minora works as a good hint of pigmentation.
Labia reduction is performed with prepuce reduction as well, where the extra fold of the prepuce tissue is removed. This tissue can be seen around the clitoral hood, and the surgery can be conducted on both sides. there are women who have either no or very little prepuce while there are some who have quite prominent prepuce. an affirmed fact about labiaplasty is that no tissue is ever removed from the center/middle.
The surgery is only performed on the sides so that no damage is caused to the side nerves. only the extra tissues are removed and in place, thin sutures are placed in the form on two layers, this is to resize the labia, which dissolves within some weeks.
