What is the benefit of having a Labiaplasty?
What is the benefit of having a Labiaplasty? Performing labiaplasty is a personal decision. Depending on the looseness and appearance of the folds of skin surrounding your vaginal area, it may bother you and your specific anatomy. Enlarged labia folds may be uncomfortable or hinder your self confidence and sexual enjoyment. This may cause clothing to catch on the skin, or folds, or interfere with your clitoral hood and the lower opening of the vagina. Color or darkening may bother a patient, as the darkened edges may impact your aesthetic preference and therefore, impacts your confidence. Large and loose labias may result in pain during intercourse because it may pull the loose skin, creating a web, or cause interference of the vaginal opening. The benefit is to allow the patient more pleasure, comfort and confidence in sexual intimacy.
