The physical appearance of the female anatomy varies from woman to woman. Some women have smaller breasts, some women have larger breasts. It is not uncommon for those who are unsatisfied with their physique to seek a plastic surgeons’ opinion and ultimately surgery. In these instances, a breast augmentation, a breast reduction or breast lift. The same applies to women who are unsatisfied with the appearance of their labia.
The labia or “lips” is the tissue that is external to the vagina, and is comprised of the inner lips, or the labia minora, and the outer lips, or the labia majora. The labia minora can sometimes extend beyond the boundaries of the labia majora, and cause problems such as chafing in clothes, chafing with exercise or even walking, discomfort or pain with sexual activity. It also contributes to an undesirable appearance in clothing, such as the ever-popular yoga pant.
Not only does a labiaplasty address the physical appearance, it also promotes improved functional aspects as well. Women seek more confidence while wearing clothing and want relief from chafing, and to not have pain or discomfort with intercourse. Some women live with chronic urinary tract infections or have difficulty with maintaining hygiene, and these circumstances can be drastically improved with a labiaplasty. Dr. Gregerson and his team are dedicated to promoting confidence, self-esteem, and quality of life for all patients who are distressed by this condition.
