As a woman, you want to feel confident and comfortable in your skin. However, this can be difficult when you don’t feel good about how your genitals look. Most women are concerned about the size, shape, and appearance of their labia. Hawthorne labiaplasty can help to improve the appearance of your genitals and increase your confidence.
The labia are the lips that surround the vaginal opening. Labia can be of different sizes and shapes. Some women have labia that are significantly large, which can make you feel self-conscious about your appearance.
How to prepare for the procedure
You will need to consult with a plastic surgeon to discuss the surgery. The surgeon will examine your labia and determine your suitability for the surgery. You will also need a pre-operative assessment to ensure that you are healthy enough for the surgery.
What you can expect after the surgery
Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that reduces the size of the labia. It can also improve the shape of the labia and make them more symmetrical. It takes about one to two hours to complete.
The recovery time for labiaplasty is usually short. You may have some swelling and bruising for a few days after the surgery. However, most women can return to work and normal activities within a week. There is usually no need for pain medication after the surgery. The results of labiaplasty are permanent. You will enjoy the benefits of the surgery for many years to come.
Now that you know something about labiaplasty, below is a detailed explanation of the reasons why women opt for this surgery:
To reduce pain and discomfort
If you have large labia, you may experience pain and discomfort. This is especially true during sex or when wearing tight clothing. The pain can be so severe that it interferes with your quality of life. Labiaplasty can help reduce the size of your labia, reducing the pain and discomfort you feel.
To improve self-esteem and confidence
Many women feel self-conscious about the way their genitals look. This can lead to a loss of confidence and self-esteem. Labiaplasty can help to improve the appearance of your labia, which can, in turn, boost your confidence and self-esteem.
Help reduce chronic urinary tract infections
In addition to being painful and unpleasant, urinary tract infections (UTIs) can frequently go unnoticed and unintentionally trigger kidney infections, which are much more serious. Because of their enlarged labia, some women, unfortunately, have recurrent or even chronic urinary tract infections from body secretions like sweat, urine, and vaginal discharge that become trapped in their external genitalia.
Labiaplasty surgery might be helpful if you have enlarged labia and recurrent urinary tract infections.
The labia can suffer trauma after childbirth
Vaginal-birthing mothers risk suffering trauma to their labia during delivery; however, if you undergo vaginal rejuvenation, you can restore your vagina to your pre-delivery state after suffering trauma or deformation of the labia during childbirth.
