Why Choose a Cosmetic Gynecologist?
As you consider your options for labiaplasty, our recommendation is that you consult with a cosmetic gynecologist who can answer any questions you may have about the procedure or about your own eligibility.
What is Cosmetic Gynecology?
Cosmetic gynecology is a field of medicine that is devoted to improving the appearance and/or the functionality of the vagina or the labia. Typically, the cosmetic gynecologist’s goal is to help their patient experience increased sexual pleasure while also rejuvenating their genitals to make the body appear younger.
Cosmetic gynecologists often perform aesthetic procedures for women who have experienced childbirth, or who are dealing with natural effects of the aging process. In some instances, cosmetic gynecologists may perform reconstructive surgeries for women who have been burned or injured in traumatic accidents.
Reasons to Choose a Cosmetic Gynecologist
Why, then, might a woman choose to see a cosmetic gynecologist over a more general plastic surgeon?
The short answer is that cosmetic gynecologists possess the specialized knowledge, equipment, and experience needed to perform procedures involving the female genitals. Indeed, most cosmetic gynecologists focus the vast majority of their practices on performing labiaplasty and vaginoplasty procedures. As such, they have the skills required to properly evaluate patient needs, recommend the best procedure, and ensure the patient’s comfort and safety during the procedure.
By contrast, plastic surgeons typically focus on procedures such as facelifts, tummy tucks, breast augmentation, and butt lifts. While some plastic surgeons do offer procedures involving vaginal rejuvenation, this is rarely their top focus or primary practice area. Plastic surgeons tend to be generalists, but when it comes to delicate areas like the labia or vagina, most women feel more comfortable working with a specialist.
Something else to consider is that plastic surgeons are focused primarily on aesthetics. Certainly, when you get labiaplasty, you want the end result to look compact, youthful, and appealing. With that said, you may also want to increase your sensation of sexual pleasure. Cosmetic gynecologists are experienced not just in vaginal aesthetics, but in the mechanics of female intimacy. They are uniquely qualified to ensure that your labiaplasty improves your intimate life.
