Whether due to childbirth or the natural aging process, many women find that as they approach middle age or menopause, they begin to experience vaginal laxity or dryness. This can interfere with everyday activities such as exercising, as overly large labia can cause irritation and discomfort. In addition, vaginal dryness and enlarged labia can make intercourse painful or uncomfortable.
Here at Mosharrafa Plastic Surgery, we offer both surgical and non-surgical options for vaginal rejuvenation. If you are interested in tightening your labia and vaginal tissue, helping prevent stress incontinence, and restoring intimacy through more comfortable intercourse, call us at 602-883-4483 today to schedule your confidential consultation.
A labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that can remove excess tissue from the labia minora in order to improve the appearance of your genitalia as well as improve hygiene and enhance sexual experiences. If your labia minora hang below the labia majora, it can cause significant discomfort such as itching, tugging, twisting, and irritation.
As a labiaplasty does require incisions, there will be some discomfort following the procedure. You will be given prescription medications to help with any pain or discomfort, and generally our patients are back to normal in just a few days. However, we do recommend abstaining from vaginal intercourse for at least four weeks following your procedure in order to ensure proper healing.
A common concern among labiaplasty candidates is whether or not they will still be able to orgasm after having the procedure done. In fact, most patients report that not only can they still orgasm, but their overall sensation during intercourse is improved.
Ideal labiaplasty candidates include:
- Women who desire a dramatic reduction of the labia minora
- Women whose labia minora cause discomfort when exercising, riding a bike, having intercourse, or other activities
- Women who are not looking for a solution to stress incontinence or dryness
FemTouch Rejuvenating Laser
For women who are hesitant about undergoing a surgical procedure, we also offer the FemTouch laser for vaginal rejuvenation. This treatment is quick and painless, and requires no incisions or downtime. It works by stimulating collagen growth in vaginal tissue through the use of CO2 laser technology, thus tightening the vaginal canal and improving urine control as well as helping to prevent vaginal dryness during sexual intercourse.
In addition to tightening the vaginal canal, the FemTouch laser can be used on the labia in order to tighten the tissue and create a more pleasing aesthetic appearance. However, if your labia are excessively large to the point of causing discomfort, labiaplasty may be a better option.
FemTouch may be right for you if:
- You are looking for a mild tightening of the labia and vaginal canal
- You suffer from mild stress incontinence
- You suffer from vaginal dryness
The FemTouch procedure takes only around 10 minutes to perform, and is painless. You may feel some slight discomfort similar to that of a pap smear. We recommend 3 treatments spaced a month apart for best results, with follow-up treatments yearly or as needed.
If you want to significantly reduce the size of your labia as well as tighten your vaginal canal, FemTouch and labiaplasty can be combined in order to produce optimal results for your unique case. Ask us if this would be a good option for you.
