Labiaplasty & Vaginoplasty – 2 Procedures You May Not Have Heard of Before 2019
What is Vaginoplasty?
Vaginoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that is designed to tighten the vagina that has become loose due to aging or vaginal childbirth. Some surgeons believe that the surgery improves sensitivity. This claim has been challenged strongly by gynaecologists and obstetricians.
Although vaginal tissues can stretch, tightening the vaginal tissue using a surgical procedure cannot guarantee an improved sexual response, since arousal, orgasm, and desire are personal complex responses. These responses are conditioned by religious, emotional, and interpersonal aesthetic factors. Additionally, improved sensitivity is not guaranteed to lead to more sexual pleasure; it can cause pain.
What is Labiaplasty?
This is a procedure that is done on the lips surrounding the vagina. It can be done by itself, or with vaginoplasty. The surgery can be done on the labia manor (inner vaginal lips), or the labia major (outer vaginal lips). Labiaplasty alters the shape or size of the labia by changing its symmetry.
Cosmetic Surgery or Reconstructive Surgery
To decide whether to undergo labiaplasty or vaginoplasty, you need to understand the difference between cosmetic surgery and reconstructive surgery. Cosmetic surgery alters the looks of the normal anatomy, while reconstructive surgery helps to improve the functional aspect of the body part.
Surgeries Related to Labiaplasty and Vaginoplasty
Vaginoplasty has now been categorised and marketed as “designer vagina” and “vaginal rejuvenation” procedures. Gynaecologists and plastic surgeons are selling their range of vaginoplasty procedures, propagating the same benefits as improved self-esteem, beauty, and confidence.
Recently, the traditional scalpel has been replaced by laser technology to carry out “vaginal rejuvenation.” Below is a list of procedures for “designer vagina” and “vaginal rejuvenation”:
Clitorial unhooding: some surgeons offer this procedure which removes the layer that usually covers the clitoris.
Revirgination: the first time a woman has intercourse, the thin tissue at the entrance of Virginia normally breaks. If you want to repair the hymen to its original form, a procedure called hymenoplasty is considered. This procedure is highly controversial because of the strong religious importance of the importance of virginity.
G-spot amplification: the G-spot is held on the front wall of the vagina. It is a sensitive site for female arousal and orgasm. The amplification procedure involves the injection of collagen to increase pleasure on the front wall of the vagina.
Risks of Labiaplasty and Vaginoplasty
The level of female satisfaction and complications from labiaplasty and vaginoplasty have not been tracked. Since these procedures have not been reviewed in medical journals like other procedures, some gynaecologists consider them “unproven.”
Some of the risks involved with vaginal cosmetic surgery are:
- Ongoing pain
- Permanent sensational changes
For women, it is advisable to talk with their doctors openly about their feelings and expectations about the surgical procedures.
