At the Vaginal Rejuvenation Center of Austin, women have the opportunity to address intimate concerns in a discreet and comfortable environment. Dr. Walden and our staff understand that vaginal atrophy and anatomical structure can create issues that diminish quality of life. For this reason, we have equipped our facility with varying modalities to improve tone, texture, pigment, and the general integrity of the labia and vagina. As much as women find nonsurgical treatment options appealing, we find it beneficial to also discuss what can be achieved with surgical techniques.
Labiaplasty is a minor surgery that is said to be life-changing. Why? Because it can significantly improve a woman’s quality of life. The procedure focuses on removing excess tissue from the labia minora, the inner pieces of thin tissue that sometimes hang lower than the labia majora around them. The trimming of redundant tissue “cleans up” the feminine area for not only an aesthetic change, but perhaps more importantly, it can restore comfort on both the physical and emotional level.
Achieving proper proportions in which the labia minora sit within the folds of the labia majora can improve appearance and also put an end to frequent tissue irritation caused by clothing. In addition to refining the inner lips of the external vaginal area, Labiaplasty may also include clitoral hood reduction. This technique trims extra folds of skin away from the clitoris to enhance erogenous sensation.
Several benefits can be obtained with Labiaplasty surgery. The outpatient procedure incurs only a short recovery period. Many patients are back to work within a few days. Exercise and sexual intercourse can typically be resumed within 4 to 6 weeks.
Undergoing Labiaplasty can be a big decision. Women in the Austin area appreciate the opportunity to discuss feminine concerns with a female plastic surgeon who has investigated numerous procedures and nonsurgical treatments to improve sexual wellness and that important sense of femininity every woman wants.
