If you’re unhappy with the size or shape of your labia, labiaplasty can give you a big boost of confidence. Labiaplasty is a procedure that can fix a long or stretched labia for greater comfort and self-esteem, especially during physical and sexual activity. That said, there are many myths and misunderstandings that have arisen about labiaplasty. Unfortunately, these misconceptions can cause people to avoid the procedure despite the many benefits that it can provide.
Here, we’ll debunk common labiaplasty myths and misunderstandings so that you can make the right decision for yourself.
Myth #1: The Scarring Is Severe After Labiaplasty.
Labiaplasty doesn’t lead to severe scarring. The tissue of the labia heals quickly, with scars that aren’t visible after the area fully heals. Additionally, due to the folds of a healthy labia, the scarring from labiaplasty doesn’t stand out.
Myth #2: Labiaplasty Affects Your Ability To Orgasm.
Some women fear that labiaplasty will diminish their ability to orgasm. This isn’t the case. Labiaplasty only involves the resculpting of the labia, including the removal of excess labia minora tissue. In the labiaplasty procedure, there’s no risk of damage to the clitoris, which is the main source of sexual stimulation for a woman’s orgasm, so labiaplasty won’t interfere with having intercourse or your ability to orgasm.
Myth #3: You Have To Complete Your Family Before Undergoing Labiaplasty.
Childbearing shouldn’t have a significant effect on the labia, and labiaplasty won’t impact childbearing. Therefore, you don’t have to wait to undergo labiaplasty until you’re done having children. If you’re unhappy with the size or shape of your labia, having labiaplasty now will spare you from discomfort and low confidence, so there’s no need to wait.
Myth #4: Labiaplasty Is a Painful Procedure.
People often assume that labiaplasty will be very painful because it affects a sensitive area of the body. However, patients generally have no problems with the procedure. It may be performed under local or general anesthesia, and over-the-counter pain medications are all that most patients need to manage discomfort after labiaplasty.
