What is labiaplasty?

The genital area is composed of two parts, internal and external. In fact, labiaplasty surgery is performed on the external genitalia in order to shrink the labia. The external genitalia consist of two parts, the labia majora and the labia minora. The labia majora is the place where hair grows and the labia minor is the internal fleshy part.

The beauty of the genital area is relative and often the labia do not have a specific shape. It is interesting to know that the shape of the labia in the genital area of ​​each person is different, but sometimes the labia are abnormally larger than usual and with wrinkles. It is asymmetrical and dark in color, and such issues can cause problems for the person in terms of beauty and appearance, health and even sexual issues.

These factors can also lead to vaginal infections, including multiple fungal infections and painful sex. Usually people who face such problems are bothered by wearing tight clothes. All these cases cause the person to refer to a gynecological cosmetic surgeon for repair and labiaplasty surgery.

Why do some people have large labia?

The genital area is the area that is enlarged by hormones, especially during puberty, and in fact the growth of the labia is complete after puberty. This is why some women insist that their labia get bigger during puberty. One of the factors that can cause the labia to enlarge is genetics. During puberty, the labia show their original shape, for example, they are characterized by excessive size and asymmetry at puberty.

Finally, the genital area, like other areas of the body, is different in different people, and some people need this type of cosmetic surgery because it is too large.

What are the factors affecting the deformation of the labia?

It is important to know that having sex and rubbing will not cause the labia to enlarge. But know that any factor that changes hormones, such as pregnancy and childbirth, can change the shape of the labia.

Finally, it should be said that hormonal factors such as puberty, pregnancy and cesarean section or natural childbirth can cause the labia to grow too much, but there is no other factor that can cause the labia to grow and deform. After the labiaplasty, there will be no deformation in the labia at all. As mentioned, unless the level of hormones in the body rises and the person becomes pregnant, then there is a possibility of deformation in the labia.

Labiaplasty repair is possible in several ways, usually labiaplasty can be done both surgically and laser. Labiaplasty is usually performed under two methods of anesthesia and local anesthesia. It is necessary to know that the choice of surgical method is determined depending on the patient’s condition and the physician’s discretion, and cosmetic results have been successful in both surgery and laser.

Vaginal cosmetic surgery or labiaplasty surgery

Labiaplasty is performed in a hospital under general anesthesia or local anesthesia. The patient will not feel any pain during the surgery. In labiaplasty surgery, the number of sutures is more than laser labiaplasty , but in this method, the sutures are struck on the inside of the edges, which will not be visible. Labiaplasty surgery is usually performed on an outpatient basis and the patient can be discharged from the hospital after a few hours.

Laser labiaplasty

Laser labiaplasty varies from thirty to sixty minutes, depending on the amount of changes a person needs. There is no need for medical advice before laser labiaplasty.

Female cosmetic laser is performed only through local anesthesia using ointment and intravenous injection, in which first anesthesia ointment is used for anesthesia of the genital area and after anesthesia in the genital area. The doctor then anesthetized the genital area again so that the person would not feel any pain during the laser treatment.

Laser labiaplasty is a very suitable gynecological cosmetic procedure, but the patient’s choice should be made at the discretion of the obstetrician. Laser labiaplasty usually does not require suturing, but if suturing is sometimes needed, a few small sutures will be made at the edges of the genital area that will be visible. It should be noted that the sutures in both methods of labiaplasty surgery are absorbed after a week, and after this period, the sutures fall off and will not cause any problems or discomfort for the patient.

Does laser labiaplasty hurt?

One of the most common questions asked by the majority of people who want to have labia surgery is whether the labia are painful. It is important to note that this cosmetic procedure is not recommended for people who are very anxious, as it is possible that the person will be a little annoyed during the laser.

Anesthetic ointments and injections are used before the cosmetic laser. Therefore, the person will not feel any pain during the cosmetic laser, and finally, after finishing, to prevent any pain and discomfort from oral painkillers and The suppository is prescribed for the person.

Medical advice after laser beauty for women

After laser labiaplasty, the patient will be monitored for 30 minutes to perform the necessary assessments in case of any possible bleeding, and if the person does not encounter any problems, he can return to his place of residence.

The difference between labiaplasty and laser surgery

  • Recovery time and post-surgery care will vary.
  • The difference between labiaplasty surgery and laser surgery is that the duration of the recovery period with a laser will be shorter than surgery.
  • The majority of people who decide to have labiaplasty surgery in the operating room because they want to have several cosmetic surgeries at the same time.

What is the best way to do labiaplasty?

One of the most common questions asked by the majority of people who decide to have labiaplasty surgery is, is labiaplasty better with laser or surgery?  It should be noted that the choice of surgical method depends on the physician’s discretion and the anatomy of the individual. It should be noted that laser is a precise and delicate treatment and beauty, but sometimes the labia that are too large is better to have surgery. Finally, whatever method is chosen, it will not harm the patient and will not leave a scar.

In these cases, people can inject gel into the labia majora at the same time as laser labiaplasty, or if they have labiaplasty surgery, they can inject fat into the labia majora at the same  time, which makes the patient’s genital area look completely problem-free. Be and look beautiful.

Labiaplasty is sometimes recommended at the same time as whitening the genital area. People who have laser labiaplasty in the office can whiten the genital area while having labiaplasty .

Hodectomy are extra folds that are located above the labia. When you perform labia plastic surgery, cosmetic surgery must be performed on the clitoris area, so cosmetic surgery of the clitoris or hodectomy can be performed simultaneously with the labia plastic, but The reason is that all the sensory nerves in this area must be performed with great care and skill.

Everything that needs to be done is usually done at the discretion of the gynecologist. The selection of all surgeries is done simultaneously and the type of method is done after the necessary consultations according to the patient’s condition. But the only obstacle in labiaplasty surgery is that cosmetic vaginal surgeries can not be performed at the same time as cesarean delivery because the possibility of blood coagulation at this time is high and performing simultaneous surgeries will increase the risk of embolism. .
