According to The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, labiaplasty procedures in the United States continue to increase in popularity. In fact, statistics show that labiaplasty procedures increased by 44 percent, which many believe suggests a change in the way women view their bodies. "Countless women, however, still remain unfamiliar with a labiaplasty and what the procedure entails,” — Dr. Edward Jacobson explains.
Labiaplasty (labiaplastymd.net/sexual-enhancement-surgery-women) involves the changing of the shape or size of the labia, working to decrease the size of the vaginal lips or correcting a defect in them. Many choose to undergo the procedure to restore the body to a previous state, such as the state prior to childbirth. Some opt to combine this surgery with a vaginal rejuvenation surgery to increase sexual enjoyment, as a woman’s body goes through many changes during childbirth.
"With the help of labiaplasty (labiaplastymd.net/frequently-asked-questions-labiaplasty), women find they are able to wear clothes that mold to the body, such as thongs, tights and bathing suits, without embarrassment, as the bulky tissue in the area has been reduced. The procedure may be done in the office, and patients recover rapidly without pain, thanks to the long-acting anesthesia," Dr. Jacobson continues.
Some medical professionals believe a labiaplasty is a form of sexual mutilation, one which can lead to excessive scarring and continuous pain. As Dr. Jacobson explains, nothing is further from the truth when one makes use of a skilled professional, and 90 percent of patients are satisfied with the results. The key to success lies in choosing the right medical professional.
Care must be taken when selecting a surgeon as there is no accreditation or certification when it comes to this type of surgery. The patient remains responsible for ensuring the medical professional chosen has undertaken this surgical procedure before and has a good track record, along with formal training.
"Don’t rush the process when choosing a physician. Although there are few risks associated with labiaplasty when the procedure is performed by a skilled professional, the patient must understand the benefits and risks, side effects which may be expected, and the recovery process. If a doctor is unwilling to share this information, the patient needs to look elsewhere. Don’t hesitate to contact our office as staff members will happily answer any questions and address any concerns before a procedure is scheduled, “Dr. Jacobson declares.
