Female cosmetic genital surgeries are becoming increasingly popular throughout the United States. In fact, we’ve seen a dramatic increase in the number of labial reduction surgeries performed by our doctors in the past 10 years. It may be because women are becoming more in touch and comfortable with their bodies or because their perceptions of “normal” female genitalia is being influenced by images in the media. No matter what their inspiration may be, a number of our patients find themselves thrilled with the results of the procedure. Although some women have the surgery due to discomfort and pain, most of the women admit they are getting the surgery done for aesthetic reasons or to enhance their love life and embrace all that life has to offer.
Studies have illustrated that some women have had issues with the size and appearance of their private area from an early age while others in their 20’s, 30’s and 40’s have become dissatisfied with it as they got older. The studies also concluded that women with normal sized labia minora still seek labial reduction surgery for cosmetic reasons.
As the home of some of Southern California’s finest specialists in female-specific surgeries, patients are turning to our team here at Beverly Hills Physicians. We understand the needs for patients having it done will range from being strictly medical to entirely aesthetic or because they are experiencing labial pain during sexual intercourse. Other patients have requested to have the procedure done because they feel self-conscious wearing bathing suits, underwear, pants or jeans.
No matter what the reason is for having this procedure performed, our team of specialists are highly effective at performing the surgery. There is little discomfort, and recovery times for this outpatient procedure tend to be very brief. Labia reduction may be performed under general or twilight anesthesia and patients report consistently outstanding results. Many women, especially those who are getting the procedure done to enhance sexual intercourse, elect to take advantage of the procedures together with vaginoplasty, which tightens the structures of the area, as part of an overall vaginal rejuvenation procedure.
We are noted throughout Southern California as the health and beauty team that puts the needs of its patients first. Our goal is to make women look and feel great throughout their lives. If you are seriously interested in exploring whether or not a labial procedure makes sense for you, your next step should be a free initial consultation with our team. During the consultation, you can explore with the specialist the various reasons for obtaining the procedure and the most likely results.
