Am I a Good Candidate for Labiaplasty?

No woman should ever feel self-conscious about the most intimate parts of herself, but for women who suffer from an oversized labia, discomfort can be a daily issue. While it might seem like it’s a problem that only affects women during intimate moments, an oversized labia can interfere with activities like bike riding or even make them think twice about wearing certain types of clothing. For women who want to finally feel free and confident to live their life, there is one option: a popular surgical procedure called labiaplasty. Not sure what labiaplasty is or if it’s the right solution for you? Take the time to read this simple guide on who’s the perfect candidate for labiaplasty.

Who’s a Good Candidate for a Labiaplasty?

Women of all shapes, ages, and sizes suffer from excess or asymmetrical labia tissue. Thankfully, almost any woman over the age of 18 can receive a labiaplasty, a procedure that reshapes the labia to a comfortable size.

Typically, women undergo a labiaplasty because they:

  • Feels self-conscious about an overly-large or unusually shaped labia
  • Feels discomfort when wearing tight-fitting clothing or riding a bike
  • Are in good health
  • Has realistic expectations for the labiaplasty
  • Is only pursuing the procedure for herself, and no one else

Why Do Women Usually Get a Labiaplasty?

Maybe your labia changed after childbirth, or maybe you’ve been suffering from the effects of an oversized labia for your entire life; either way, it’s difficult to have to deal with an issue that doesn’t just affect your daily life, but your intimate life, too. For many women, a labiaplasty isn’t just a chance to rejuvenate their bodies; it’s a way to reclaim their femininity.

Why Should I Get Labiaplasty?

Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of labiaplasty:

  • The ability to wear tight clothing comfortably
  • An improved sex life
  • And increase confidence towards your body

With a labiaplasty, women can enjoy a labia that looks pinker, more symmetrical, and is more reasonably sized. Plus, a labiaplasty’s results are permanent, so women can enjoy their new, rejuvenated self for years at a time.

This issue is, understandably, a sensitive one for many women; that’s why it’s so essential that women go to a compassionate, experienced surgeon that understands what they’re going through.
