Many women experience a major change in the look and the feel of the external genitalia or vaginal lips during and after menopause. This is because the dramatic decrease of the female hormone estrogen in the body causes relaxation of all tissues, including the vaginal tissues, which can become loose and dry. These changes can alter sexual enjoyment during intercourse, as well as the labia appearance. Vaginal external lip (labia majora) reduction or tightening with labiaplasty is available through Dr. John Anastasatos at Los Angeles Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills.
Benefits of Labiaplasty for Vaginal Rejuvenation
Labiaplasty is an operation that reduces large vaginal lips. The reduction and results can be very impressive. Most women feel that larger size vaginal lips interfere with intercourse and can cause pain. This is called dyspareunia in medical terms. Some women feel that aesthetically large vaginal lips (labia majora) do not look attractive and subconsciously it interferes with sexual pleasure and body image. Smaller labia majora (external vaginal lips that are flat with the pubis) are associated with a youthful vaginal area.
Many women undergo labiaplasty in order to improve the physical look and make the vagina appear youthful. Furthermore, they feel that such an operation will improve the appearance when they wear certain clothing, like fitted pants or a swimsuit. Most women report an increase in sexual pleasure after this surgery. It is possible the increase in pleasure has to do with the actual physical tightening or also the improved mental status of the female patient.
If you are unhappy with changes to the labia that impact their appearance or sexual intercourse, labiaplasty may be an option to improve your vaginal area and sex life.
