Labiaplasty, sometimes referred to as a vaginal rejuvenation treatment, is the surgical altering of labia. The labia includes the labia minora and labia majora. These are the folds or lips on or surrounding the vagina.

Labiaplasty is designed to alter the appearance of the labia by changing size and symmetry. This post will explore into some frequently asked questions about labiaplasty so you can make an informed decision about your treatment.

Will Labiaplasty Affect Intimate Sensation?

Labiaplasty is designed to not damage or remove any nerves that provide sensation and does not involve the clitoris. This is to ensure that sensitivity during intimacy isn’t altered. In fact, the removal of excess tissue on the labia can often lead to enhanced sensitivity during intimacy.

When Can I Be Sexually Active Again?

It is important that your labia have ample time to recover from the surgical process. Sexual intercourse should not occur for four to six weeks after surgery. However, it is essential that you get the green light from your surgeon before resuming any sexual activity.

Is the Recovery Painful?

As with all surgeries, the recovery process will have its discomforts. However, you will be given specific instructions on how to mitigate and prevent unnecessary discomfort or pain. Reduction of swelling and following your surgeon’s instructions are key to a smooth recovery.

Does Labiaplasty Leave Scars?

Because labiaplasty requires surgical incisions, there will likely be scarring. However, the scars produced are very small and can be discreetly placed in natural folds or creases. As time passes, the scars will fade and become lighter.
