A longer labia minora can prevent satisfying sex due to physical pain and the psychological effects of having a changing body. A labiaplasty might be the solution for your declining sexual interest.

Maybe you’ve been noticing sexual intimacy changes between you and your partner that you can’t quite pinpoint, or maybe you’ve lost confidence in the face of all the changes your body goes through over time. Childbirth can drastically alter your anatomy and function, which leads to changes in the bedroom for many women. 

Labiaplasty surgery can restore a more youthful shape and appearance to your vulva, specifically the labia minora. Even if you’re hesitant to undergo surgery for fear of complications or dissatisfactory results, you might be interested in reviewing the potential benefits the procedure can have for your health and your sex life. 

Our team at Women’s Health Institute in Macon and Warner Robins, Georgia, welcomes you in for a discreet, no-strings-attached consultation for labiaplasty so you can decide if you want to go through with the procedure. Nnaemeka Umerah, MD, and Anayo Umerah, MD, perform labiaplasty after extensive planning to offer beautiful results that look natural and restore your confidence.

If you’re looking to spice things up in your sex life, labiaplasty could give you a hand. Here’s what you need to know before you proceed:

Boosting your confidence with cosmetic alteration

Many women opt for labiaplasty because, in older age, their bodies look unfamiliar to them. Due to tissue changes that happen during pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause, your labia can become elongated and asymmetrical. The changes can be a source of issues with self-confidence, which carries over into your most intimate relationships. 

A customizable labiaplasty restores a more youthful appearance to your labia without compromising a natural, unaltered look. Our surgeons choose from several labiaplasty techniques to improve the size and symmetry of your vulva, and as long as you follow postoperative instructions, you can enjoy a more aesthetically pleasing vulvar appearance in no time. 

More than just cosmetics

Around 93% of labiaplasty recipients are satisfied with the functional results that come with the procedure, not just the cosmetic outcome. While many initially pursue labiaplasty because they want to change the way their vulva looks, some pursue labiaplasty because it prevents pain and pulling during sexual intercourse. 

A larger labia minora can lead to discomfort when you exercise and when you engage in sex. If this is the case for you, you might struggle with a loss of interest in sex to avoid the discomfort. After a six-week healing period that involves no exercise and no sexual intercourse, you can gain a more enjoyable sex life because of your labiaplasty.

Labiaplasty may also help reduce the number of urinary tract infections you get by eliminating excess tissue where bacteria become trapped near your urethral opening.
