Labiaplasty for Moms
Childbirth is the most anticipated and celebrated event at the end of the nine-month journey of pregnancy. While the act of vaginal childbirth is miraculous, it can leave lasting effects long after you’ve brought home your little bundle of joy. During pregnancy, the labia expands due to a mother’s increased blood volume. A developing child also exerts pressure on the pelvic blood vessels which can lead to additional stretching. During childbirth, this pressure drastically increases, and the labia reaches maximum stretching. After childbirth, a woman’s labia returns back to normal, but the skin may be stretched beyond elasticity. This results in an oversized labia and sagging skin. For some women, this may affect their overall appearance as well as their intimate relations.
Labiaplasty involves working on two parts of your vaginal area. Your labia majora should be full and completely cover the inner, thinner labia, which are called the labia minora. The inner labia should not protrude from the outer labia, or if they do it should be minimal. However, after childbirth, your inner labia may protrude unnaturally, and stretch and lengthen. It is a simple procedure to correct this, and it can be done under general or local anesthesia. The procedure is tolerable for most women, and there is very little pain. The sutures simply dissolve, and a small amount of swelling may remain for a time, between a few weeks to several weeks. The scarring is minimal, and a woman can resume full activity, including sexual intercourse, about one month after the scars have healed. Take a look at our before and after gallery to see how our surgeons can help you achieve similar results.
