Beyond Labiaplasty: Beauty Below the Belt
Feminine rejuvenation and beautification can focus on improving the appearance, shape, and size of the labia minora, the labia majora, and the clitoral hood. In addition, aesthetic considerations may include the mons pubis – the soft tissue overlying the pubic bone – and the inner thighs. There are several plastic surgery procedures, including surgery itself and less invasive options, that can lead to a more attractive appearance of this anatomic area. For best results, you should find an experienced plastic surgeon who specializes in labiaplasty and associated procedures.
When evaluating the bikini area, here are some surgical options to consider for a more attractive and youthful look:
- labiaplasty – decreases the width and bulk of the labia minora, improves symmetry
- clitoral hood reduction – to decrease bulkiness or excess skin covering the clitoris
- labia majora surgery – improving contour, adding fullness, removing excess
- liposuction of inner thighs – creates the much sought after “thigh gap” look
- liposuction of the mons – produces better contour, reduces bulk; may be combined with skin excision
Before undergoing any aesthetic procedure, make sure you discuss all your wishes and expectations with your plastic surgeon. Women who undergo “designer vagina” surgeries may have very different and unique opinions as to what they seek from their cosmetic procedures. Conversely, your aesthetic surgeon will advise which procedures will produce the results you seek to achieve.
