Don’t Let Even Your Most Intimate Places Betray Your Age
Most women are prepared for changes to their bodies as a result of pregnancy, childbirth, hormonal changes, and the natural aging process: bulges around the waist, loose and sagging skin, drooping breasts, stretch marks, and so on…and so on…and so on. But most women are surprised to learn that these life events can have unfortunate effects on less visible, more intimate areas of the body as well.
Alterations to the labia can be both embarrassing and problematic: sagging, asymmetry, and/or enlargement of the lips of the inner and outer vulva can make your private area look saggy and “old”, and in the worse cases can restrict clothing choices and even cause physical discomfort during physical activity and sexual intercourse.
Labiaplasty (also referred to as vaginal lip reduction, labia reduction, or labia rejuvenation) is a remarkably advanced, yet amazingly simple, surgical procedure designed to reduce elongation, unevenness, or other physical alterations of the labia minora (inner lips of the vulva) and/or labia majora (outer lips of the vulva). The goal of this quick outpatient procedure is to reshape and re-sculpt the vulva, restoring your smaller, more youthful, and more aesthetically pleasing labia. In addition to the cosmetic benefits, labiaplasty can also offer functional benefits as well, reducing discomfort and embarrassing physical complications that can result from wearing some types of clothing, as well as enhancing sexual sensitivity by increasing access to the clitoris that may otherwise be blocked by the enlarged labia.*
