Helping Women Feel More Confident and Comfortable with Labiaplasty
Labiaplasty (also known as Labia Reduction) is a surgical procedure that reshapes a woman’s external vaginal structures to improve the appearance or to help with physical problems caused by excessive or uneven skin in this area. Dr. J. Kyle Mathews brings his extensive surgical experience to every consultation and labiaplasty that he performs, helping women to feel better about their bodies or to feel less pain and discomfort.
Who Benefits from a Labiaplasty (or Labia Reduction)?
Women today are more comfortable and aware of their bodies than ever before, and they are embracing cosmetic gynecology procedures, like Labiaplasty, that provide them with aesthetic benefits that make them feel good about themselves, no matter what they are wearing. Some women are concerned about:
- Bulges caused by large or uneven labia that are visible when they wear fitted apparel such as swimsuits, workout clothing or leotards
- Embarrassment caused by the appearance of their labia, which inhibits their sexual activity
Some women also experience physical problems due to the size and shape of the labia. Large Labia Minora (the inner vaginal lips) or Labia Majora (the outer vaginal lips) may cause women to experience problems such as:
- Discomfort or irritation during intercourse
- Inability to achieve orgasm
- Rash, skin irritation or hygiene issues
What Causes the Need for a Labiaplasty (or Labial Reduction)?
There is no standard way for women’s labias to look—every woman has a unique body; however, sometimes the tissue can be excessive or uneven or there is an overall appearance that makes a woman feel self-conscious. Sometimes this is present from birth, but some events can change a woman’s appearance, including childbirth and aging.
