It is always good to know what body type works best for certain cosmetic procedures. It is not every day that you receive a cosmetic procedure such as a labiaplasty, so it is best to research beforehand. Keep reading to find out if your a good candidate for Labiaplasty.
What is Labiaplasty?
Labiaplasty is a type of plastic surgery to shorten the labia minora. This procedure is not a very popular procedure but this is due to people not understanding that this is an important part of the body to consider. The real question is when are labia so long that they require surgery? While there’s a huge range of what’s considered normal, the average labia measures about one inch from base to tip. Most of my patients with excessively long labia request a labiaplasty not because they care about the cosmetic appearance, but because they experience discomfort and irritation during sexual or athletic activities.
Who Performs the Procedure?
Labiaplasty is an outpatient procedure that can be performed by a gynecologist or plastic surgeon, which means that finding the right medical doctor is crucial. Here at Plastic Surgery Centre of Atlanta located in Atlanta, Georgia we pride ourselves in our skilled work and impressive customer feedback.
Who is a Good Candidate for Labiaplasty?
Typical candidates for vaginal rejuvenation are women who have developed significant labial changes postpartum or who have always had large and/or irregular labia majora, minora, or both. Our plastic surgeon, Dr. David Brothers, emphasizes there is no standard shape for genitalia; however, many of our patients express dissatisfaction with having a more prominent labia.
