Because labiaplasty is a relatively minor procedure, most healthy adult women are eligible. Although every woman has her own reasons for undergoing surgery, most patients give one or more of the following reasons for pursuing surgery:
- They feel self-conscious or uncomfortable during sex.
- Certain activities, such as cycling, are painful.
- Tight pants and many swimsuits are too revealing.
During your consultation, Dr. Cambeiro performs a physical examination to help him develop a surgical plan that gives you the discreet, natural-looking results you want. He may recommend a nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation treatment called ThermiVa® instead of, or in addition to, labiaplasty. Be prepared to talk at length about your medical history and your lifestyle to help him understand your motivations for surgery and the ultimate outcome you’d like to achieve.
