INCREASE OR REDUCTION OF BIG LIPS
Labia reduction is quite a popular procedure, especially for women who are struggling to cope with excess skin on their vaginal lips. It’s important to point out that lip augmentation procedure focuses on the aesthetic appeal of one’s vagina instead of being focused on functionality. In case you’re looking for a procedure that focuses on functionality, Vaginoplasty is the answer.
Increased labia majora can cause some predicaments such as pinching and pulling, especially for women who like wearing tight underwear or a bikini. Either way, it’s somewhat of a nuisance that’s easily solvable with minor lips reduction. On the other hand, you can also increase the lips with this procedure, if you wish.
The vast majority of women are eligible for this procedure as it doesn’t require the fulfillment of particularly strict parameters. However, if you’re wondering whether you should do it, here are some reasons why other women opt for this particular procedure:
- Women who feel discomfort while wearing certain types of underwear
- Women who want to change the aesthetic appeal of their vagina
- Women who have a strong medical reason to undergo a labia majora procedure
However, many women rush with their decision which consequently leads to issues with regret and sometimes even depression. That’s why it’s important to schedule a consultation with our surgeon and review all options.
There are a couple of things you need to do to prepare for this procedure properly. However, the list varies depending on many things, including your personal habits, medical history, and the reasoning behind your decision. Some of the most frequent questions include:
- Your expectations and reasoning behind your decision
- The severity of your problem
- Medical history and tendency towards tobacco, alcohol, and drugs
While these are the most popular questions, you can expect a lot of other ones during the consultation. It is important that you cooperate with our surgeon fully and answer their questions with complete honesty as it is crucial for the outcome of the procedure.
Many women prefer general anesthesia, but this procedure can be done under local anesthesia as well. It’s a relatively simple surgery, in much the same way as you might shorten a dress or a curtain. In other words, it is a rather routinely done process and chances of complications are minimal.
The surgeon will utilize a clamp across each labium, thus preventing excessive bleeding. Subsequently, they will either cut away some tissue or increase it with the use of fat grafting. Finally, the wound is stitched up.
The process typically takes between an hour and two hours, depending on several factors.
While the patient can go back to their daily obligations about five days after the lip reduction, the complete recovery lasts for about four to six months. During this period, you should avoid tight clothing, tampons, and sexual intercourse. You should abstain from intercourse for at least six weeks.
You can expect to see great results after permanent lip augmentation, especially if you have been struggling to cope with pinching and general discomfort. Some amount of pain following the surgery is inevitable but easily mitigated with pain medications.
