Dangle, protrude, hurt and annoy: These are the words women often use to describe concerns about their labia minora. The antidote, on the other hand, can be summed up in a word: labiaplasty. Whether the genital lips are a source of social anxiety or physical discomfort, the consequences can feel overwhelming—but a solution does exist. Let’s take a minute to answer some common questions about the pros, possible cons and prices of labia surgery.
can a labiaplasty do for me?"
Well, it depends on your goals. Dr. Erhard considers each woman’s case on an individual level—each woman’s body is unique, and thus, there is no "one size fits all" labiaplasty. When a woman is unhappy with the appearance or the size of her genitalia, some common culprits include effects of childbirth, the natural process of aging, genetic factors, and accident or injury. On a general level, a labiaplasty includes a labia minora reduction and/or correction of asymmetries or other discrepancies of the labia minora. The surgery is personalized to fit the needs of the individual woman, and the results are equally personal. Patients have reported higher sex drive, greater self-confidence, more comfort wearing certain clothes. It all depends on you.
there risks or side effects with a labiaplasty?"
A labiaplasty, despite the long name, is actually a simple and relatively quick surgery. Local anesthetic is used, so you will not feel pain during the procedure, and post-operative pain will be minimized. Dr. Erhard is a board certified OB/GYN, and is fellowship trained in Vaginal Reconstructive Surgery and renowned in the field of Cosmetic Vaginal Surgery. She uses precision surgical tactics and takes great care to protect and preserve the sensitive tissues of this area while ensuring a great aesthetic outcome.
honest: How much will a labiaplasty set me back?"
