Labiaplasty is a branch of genital cosmetic surgery in which the inner labia prolapsed from the vagina are lifted so that they are no longer visible from the outside. The operation is usually performed because of aesthetic concerns or functional disorders, such as discomfort or pain.
From an aesthetic point of view, labiaplasty surgery provides a more symmetrical and neat appearance of the genital area. This can be a factor that increases self-confidence for many women, especially when wearing a bikini or underwear. In functional terms, excess tissue can sometimes cause discomfort during sexual intercourse or lead to friction when exercising and walking. Such problems can be solved with labiaplasty.
The surgery is usually performed under local anaesthesia and takes about 1-2 hours. The recovery period may vary depending on the extent of the procedure and the patient’s general health status, but normal activities can usually be resumed within a few weeks.
For women considering labiaplasty, a detailed consultation with the surgeon is extremely important. During this process, the possible risks, benefits, and recovery process of the surgery are discussed in detail. In addition, the patient’s aesthetic and functional expectations are also evaluated. This comprehensive evaluation increases the success of the surgery and the patient’s satisfaction.
