Labioplasty is the name of this operation. And this is not an easy cosmetic procedure. This is a real surgical intervention, and, as with every operation, there is a risk of complications after it: pain, sensitive scars, infections, increased or decreased sensitivity, etc.
Here’s what you need to know about labioplasty so as not to fall victim to the creepy fashion for reshaping your body to a fictional “standard”.
1. The vast majority of those who applied do not have any objective medical indications for going under the scalpel.
Girls simply do not know that the genitals of each woman are unique, and when they see that something does not match with the porn model, they decide that something is wrong with them.
When a doctor shows them how different intimate parts can look in different patients, many calm down and agree that they do not need an operation.
2. Occasionally, indications for surgery still exist.
For example, after an injury or in exceptionally rare cases of anatomical anomalies, when the labia is so large that they do not allow a tampon to be inserted, they often become inflamed and cause pain during sex. Sometimes one lip is normal in size, and the second is significantly enlarged. If it really causes problems, and not just “looks sloppy somehow” – then the operation can help.
3. This is a relatively quick, but rather complicated procedure.
How exactly it is performed depends on the individual characteristics of the patient: she needs to reduce the labia, make them more symmetrical, or something else. The operation takes from 15 minutes to an hour and is done under local anesthesia, less often under general anesthesia.
4. The recovery process after labioplasty is quite stressful and complex.
Doctors say patients often underestimate how long it will take to heal and how much discomfort they will experience. Part of recovery is regular restorative sitz baths. After them, it is recommended to dry the long-suffering area with a stream of cool air from a hair dryer so that there is no moisture left and the likelihood of infections is reduced. You have to carefully select clothes: well-fitting – during the day, loose – at night, so that nothing rubs and does not crash …
In a word, this is not going to the hairdresser. Tailoring your sensitive spots to look like a picture from the Penthouse… No, we wouldn’t.
