If you’re like most of us, part of your New Year’s resolution likely involves some form of self improvement. Whether embarking on a new diet, adding to your exercise routine, or making sure you’re taking care of your health, it’s not alway easy to reach your goals. However, there are some goals that remain elusive despite strict adherence to proper nutrition and regular exercise. In these instances, plastic surgery can provide that extra benefit. For instance, if you don’t feel comfortable in your workout clothes, especially if you feel embarrassed and self conscious about extra bulk in the pubic area, it makes the task of exercising all the more daunting. Rest assured, you’re not alone, there are many women who share your concerns. In fact, labiaplasty is one of the fastest growing procedures in plastic surgery. As part of feminine rejuvenation procedures, labiaplasty allows for removal of excess tissue of the labia minora, reducing extra skin creating hooding of the clitoris, and contouring the labia majora to produce a more shapely, less droopy appearance.
In addition to labiaplasty, other cosmetic surgery procedures may contribute to giving you a better body this year. Liposuction, for example is a great procedure that targets those stubborn areas of fat that do not disappear despite your best efforts with diet and exercise. As an adjunctive procedure with labiaplasty, it can be used to contour the pubic mons and the inner thighs, to create the elusive “thigh gap”. Most often liposuction is used to improve the abdomen, thighs, or hips (“saddle bags”), and to correct love handles in men. In patients who also have extra loose skin, or stretch marks, a tummy tuck may be performed in conjunction with liposuction to remove excess belly skin. Make sure to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in aesthetic plastic surgery to discuss which options and alternatives are best for you.
