Close Up of Torso With Hand Reaching Down To Cover VaginaAt Sugar Land Medical Spa, we hear from a lot of women who are interested in looking their best, feeling their best, and enjoying sexual intimacy like never before. Often, the “all of the above” solution that patients require is labiaplasty, a procedure in which Dr. Evans revises the skin around the opening of the vagina.

Before coming in for a procedure, it is helpful to have all the information… including that regarding recovery and after-effects. For example, can women who experience a labiaplasty anticipate any scarring? And if so, will that hamper their ability to enjoy sexual pleasure?

What is Labiaplasty?

Before we get into the after-effects, it may be helpful to provide some additional, baseline information about what a labiaplasty involves.

The goal of this surgery is to minimize loose and excess tissues, giving the labia a more symmetrical appearance. This also gives the vagina a more compact and youthful look overall.

Women seek labiaplasty for a number of reasons. Sometimes, it is to reverse some of the effects of childbirth, or simply the effects of time. In other cases, labiaplasty is used to provide additional comfort for women who experience pain during sex, or while wearing tight clothes.

Scarring After Labiaplasty

No matter your reasons for seeking labiaplasty, we are pleased to offer this procedure here at Sugar Land. As we help our patients prepare for vaginal rejuvenation, we want them to have all the facts about post-surgical complications, including scarring.

When Dr. Evans performs labiaplasty, her goal is always to minimize scarring. For some women, there remains a chance that, as they heal, some scar tissue will form, potentially increasing their discomfort during sexual intercourse.

However, for patients who come in for regular follow-ups and engage in the recommended therapies, this possibility is fairly small. Ultimately, labiaplasty is a great choice for women who want to enjoy sexual intimacy even more.

Is Labiaplasty Right for You?

Ultimately, Dr. Evans recommends labiaplasty for women who meet the following criteria:

  • You are unhappy with the physical appearance of your vagina.
  • You experience pain or discomfort when you have sex.
  • You are uncomfortable wearing tight-fitting clothing.
  • You are in good health overall and do not have any underlying medical conditions that could prevent you from properly healing.

If you have any additional questions about your eligibility for labiaplasty, we welcome you to contact Sugar Land to make a consultation appointment with Dr. Evans.

Additional Options for Vaginal Rejuvenation

Also, keep in mind that a number of treatments are available to restore the aesthetics and functionality of your vagina, including non-surgical options such as the O-Shot or radiofrequency vaginal tightening. We are happy to tell you more about some of these options if you believe labiaplasty is the wrong choice for you.
