5 Things You Should Know About Labiaplasty

Are you considering getting a labiaplasty? You aren’t alone! It is one of the most popular procedures in Sydney and across the world. One by one, women are deciding that they don’t just have to live with their body issues. Why be uncomfortable and insecure when there’s a simple, safe, and affordable solution?

Are you considering making a change? Here are five things you should know about labiaplasty.

Large or Saggy Labia Is Totally Normal

Before we talk about labiaplasty, let’s just spend a moment considering how common large and saggy labia are. The average woman has outer labia the measure from seven to 12 centimetres- and many women have measure even larger. Whatever size or shape your labia are, there are sure to be countless women dealing with exactly the same issue. Doctors have seen it all so don’t be shy about talking to someone.

Some women find that their labia change after childbirth or a major weight loss while other ladies notice a large or saggy labia very early in life. Regardless of the cause of your labia sagging or enlargement, don’t worry! It is completely normal but it’s not something that you have to live with. If your labia are making you uncomfortable or you just don’t like the look, a labiaplasty can transform your body.

You Can Have a Labiaplaty Even if You’ve Never Had Kids

You don’t need to be a mum to have a labiaplasty. This procedure can be a good option for any woman who is in good health and over the age of 18 years. While you don’t need to have kids to see great results, it is recommended that you don’t give birth after a labiaplasty. When you have a child, your labia can be completely changed. This means that the results of your labiaplasty will be unpredictable if you have to have kids after your procedure.

A Labiaplasty and a Vaginoplasty Are Two Different Things

When you get a labiaplasty, you change the external look of your genitalia only. You can have the shape and size of both your inner and your outer labia changed but that’s the extent of a labiaplasty. In other words, nothing is changed internally. During a vaginoplasty, a loose or sagging vaginal opening can be tighten. It’s very possible to have both a labiaplasty and a vaginoplasty. Ultimately, the best option for you depends on your unique needs and body type.

As a leader in labiaplasty surgery, Dr Turner can assess your needs during your consultation at his Sydney clinic. He will then create a customised plan that will address all of your needs.

A Labiaplasty and Female Circumcision Are Two VERY Different Things

Labiaplasty has been mistakenly linked to female circumcision in the past. While both procedures are done around the vagina, they are two very different things. Female circumcision is done to eliminate female sexual pleasure. The procedure is illegal throughout most of the world and is never done by professionals.

On the other hand, a labiaplasty is a safe procedure done to enhance the appearance of the labia and/ or eliminate discomfort.

No One Will Be Able to Tell You’ve Had a Labiaplasty

The great thing about a labiaplasty is that incision lines can be hidden in the natural creases of your body. With optimal placement and minimal scarring, it is highly unlikely that anyone will know you’ve had a procedure done.

Questions?
What is the difference between labiaplasty and vaginoplasty?

Labiaplasty is focused on the external appearance of your genitalia. While it is largely focused on aesthetics, it will also address external issues that can cause discomfort. The procedure is based around reducing and reshaping the labia minora.

Does Health Insurance or Medicare cover labiaplasty?

While there is a Medicare item number to cover labiaplasty, this is rarely approved by Medicare and so labiaplasty is largely considered a cosmetic surgery procedure.

Can I have a labiaplasty if I’ve never had kids?

Yes. A labiaplasty can be a good option for any woman who is in good health and over the age of 18 years. While women often choose to have a labiaplasty to deal with the effects of vaginal childbirth, it is not necessary to be a mother to have the procedure.
