6 Questions You Have About Labiaplasty

Talking about the most sensitive, delicate areas of the body is uncomfortable for many women. But this is a conversation that needs to be had. When women don’t talk about their feminine discomfort, it doesn’t get solved. Labiaplasty is a procedure that reshapes the labia, often dramatically increasing the comfort of these sensitive tissues. It may be able to help you feel more comfortable and confident.

If you have questions about labiaplasty, we want to hear them. Ask away! While you wait for your appointment, discover answers to six common labiaplasty questions below.

Do I Look “Normal” Down There?

Many women want to know if their genital area looks normal. They may worry that labiaplasty is needed due to an abnormal appearance of the labia. If you’re wondering if you look normal down there, the answer is usually yes. The appearance of the labia is as varied as facial appearance, so no two sets look exactly alike.

If you’re bothered by the appearance of your labia, labiaplasty may benefit you. But trust us, your labia look normal, before and after surgery. It’s how you feel about them that matters.

How Do I Choose a Surgeon for My Labiaplasty?

Choosing a skilled doctor for your labiaplasty is essential to achieving the best results. If you’re in the Key West area, we recommend Dr. George Peterson for your procedure.

  • As one of the top ob-gyns in Key West, Dr. Peterson has a deep understanding of female anatomy and the surgical training needed to achieve optimal results.
  • Dr. Peterson has performed many successful labiaplasty procedures.
  • We are dedicated to providing each patient with exceptional care before, during, and after their labiaplasty procedure.

When Can I Resume Sex After Labiaplasty?

After labiaplasty or vaginal rejuvenation, patients need to abstain from sexual activity for several weeks until they are fully healed from their procedure. Dr. Peterson will let you know when you can safely return to sex, but this usually occurs around 4-6 weeks after surgery.

Does Labiaplasty Affect Genital Sensation?

When performed by a skilled doctor, most women continue to experience sexual sensation after labiaplasty. No nerves are cut during this procedure, so after you’ve healed, the feeling should soon return. Some women actually experience heightened sensation after labiaplasty.

Are There Medical Benefits to Labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty has cosmetic benefits, but most women that choose the procedure do so for medical reasons. This procedure offers many non-cosmetic benefits, including:

  • Relief from painful sex
  • Less discomfort when exercising or wearing tight clothing
  • Reduction in urinary tract infections

If you’re experiencing discomfort in your feminine areas, talk with your doctor and figure out why. For many women, labiaplasty can dramatically improve quality of life by relieving uncomfortable symptoms caused by the rubbing and chaffing of enlarged labial tissues.

Does Insurance Pay for Labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty is usually considered a cosmetic procedure and is not covered by medical insurance. If there are medical reasons for your procedure, your policy may be willing to pay all or part of your surgical costs. Contact your medical insurance company for more information about your coverage. Our team can also help you understand your insurance coverage and benefit options.
