Also known as vaginal rejuvenation, labiaplasty is plastic surgery to modify the inner or outer lips of the vagina, or both. This procedure is performed to improve comfort and confidence. It aims to decrease the size of the labia minora (inner lips), so they are set within the labia majora (outer lips). If you are looking for a labiaplasty in Houston, Dr. Balinger can help.
Why have labiaplasty surgery?
Many women experience adverse changes due to childbirth and aging. The labia minora may be hanging, misshapen, or disproportionately large. This can cause embarrassment and discomfort during sexual activities. Overly hanging labia can also rub against undergarments and trigger discomfort while you are going about your daily activities. Labiaplasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure that aims to reshape the inner and outer lips of the vagina for improved comfort. Women who undergo this plastic surgery report experiencing higher levels of sexual confidence, enhanced pleasure, improved vaginal aesthetics, and the ability to wear tight-fitting clothing.
How do I know if labiaplasty is the right option for me?
During your labiaplasty consultation in Houston, TX, Dr. Balinger will ask questions and review your medical history to learn more about your health. He will also examine your genitals before moving forward to the next step. This initial consultation, offered free of charge, is an opportunity to learn more about what the treatment entails and what you can expect from the procedure. Dr. Balinger is uniquely positioned to recommend the best labiaplasty method for you. He will be happy to discuss the pros and cons of each approach during your consultation at his Houston office.
What is involved in post-op care after labiaplasty?
Dr. Balinger may use dissolvable sutures for your labia reduction, or you may need to return to our office to have your sutures removed. You may need to soak the vaginal area in warm water to promote healing and manage swelling. You will need to clean the treatment area and keep it dry to prevent infection and other complications. Avoid rubbing the vaginal area with a towel or toilet paper, as this may pull or break the sutures. Tight-fitting undergarments or shorts can help prevent chafing or pulling against the stitches. Dr. Balinger will schedule follow-ups to monitor your progress.
How long will results last with labiaplasty?
Labiaplasty results are enduring. However, the genitalia may change due to aging, weight changes, and pregnancy.
