Three Surgical Procedures For Three Different Problems

Labiaplasty

Labiaplasty is for women who have a problem with large labia, asymmetric labia or related female genital issues. Labiaplasty permits the reduction of large labia (labia minora and labia majora) to reduce their outward appearance and correct misshapenness or irregularities.

Vaginoplasty

Vaginoplasty, often called vaginal rejuvenation or reconstruction, is a surgical procedure that can help women who’ve had multiple childbirths by offering a surgical remedy to tighten and enhance the sensitivity of the vagina.

Hoodectomy

Clitoral Unhooding is a minor genital procedure to remove excess Prepuce tissue, the surrounding “hood” that sheaths the clitoral node on three sides.  It offers women new heightened sensation and arousal in their sex lives.

“The most important decision you’ll make is NOT whether to have a labiaplasty, or vaginoplasty procedure performed . . . the MOST important decision you’ll make is to find the best surgeon for the procedure.”

Labiaplasty, Vaginoplasty, and Clitoral Unhooding—Feminine Cosmetic Genital Surgery (FCGS)

Labiaplasty (labia reduction & beautification) and other female cosmetic surgical procedures including Vaginoplasty (rejuvenation or tightening of the vagina) and Clitoral Unhooding (Hoodectomy), are becoming more popular as social acceptance of these cosmetic and reconstructive procedures continues toward mainstream. Labia surgery, which usually involves labia reduction—and vaginal rejuvenation, or tightening, are becoming as common today as other cosmetic procedures, including tummy tucks and breast augmentation. New advancements and techniques in Labiaplasty and Vaginoplasty typically lessen scarring, pain, recovery time, and show excellent results in the area sometimes referred to as Vaginal Cosmetic Surgery.

Labiaplasty, Vaginoplasty, and Clitoral Unhooding — Three Surgical Procedures For Three Different Problems

Labiaplasty is for women who have a problem with large labia, asymmetric labia or related female genital issues. Labiaplasty permits the reduction of large labia (labia minora and labia majora) to reduce their outward appearance and correct misshapenness or irregularities. Vaginoplasty—often called vaginal rejuvenation or reconstruction— is another surgical procedure that can help women who’ve had multiple childbirths by offering a surgical remedy to tighten and enhance the sensitivity of the vagina. Finally, Clitoral Unhooding (Hoodectomy), offers women new heightened sensation, arousal and increased personal satisfaction in their sex lives. The number of procedures in each surgical area (Labiaplasty, Vaginoplasty, Clitoral Unhooding) has been dramatically increasing. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) only recently began collecting information on vaginal rejuvenation (Vaginoplasty) in 2005—exclusively from their membership—but the growth in this area alone was shown to increase almost thirty percent (29.9%), from 2006, far eclipsing all but two other cosmetic procedures (Calf Implants & Pectoral Implants). It’s important to note that these numbers do not include the majority of procedures performed by OB/GYNs, Cosmetic Surgeons, and Urologists.

Female Genital Cosmetic Surgery (FGCS)—of which Vaginal Plastic Surgery is part—is a demanding surgical field, and few surgeons are skilled enough to perform the delicate procedures with good results. Some surgeons are formally trained in female medicine, as OB-GYNs—while others, equally competent, are plastic surgeons, cosmetic surgeons, and urologists. All are trained to understand the artistic nature of the procedure; and desired results that women expect. In almost every instance, women should only consider these types of surgical specialists when having one of these procedures performed.

To Begin, Why All The Buzz About Labiaplasty And Vaginoplasty?
Over the last few years, there’s been a stream of information about feminine cosmetic genital surgeries such as labiaplasty and vaginoplasty, and as well, varying opinions from different groups about one’s right to choose and necessity of such procedures. A vast majority of medical professionals say these procedures are needed and serve a vital purpose helping afflicted individuals with functional and emotional issues. The reason for all the chatter about these procedures is that they typically address confidential issues that are sensitive in nature. But, the most important thing to remember is that labiaplasty and vaginoplasty—when done by properly trained and experienced surgeons—greatly improves issues resulting from asymmetric labia, or multiple or difficult child birth. As such, they genuinely improve one’s self-esteem.

Labiaplasty Is Medically Indicated If Two Criteria Are Met—
Deciding to undergo a genital surgical procedure such as labiaplasty, vaginoplasty or hoodectomy, begins with the evaluation of the need. For labiaplasty, many women dislike the large appearance of their labia minora. This may cause severe embarrassment with a sexual partner or loss of self-esteem, and in some cases pain and discomfort. Not long ago, labiaplasty was usually only performed on a select group of entertainers and performers—women such as swimsuit models, and centerfold models. But today, with the advent of more sexually permissive magazines and videos; apparel and behavior; the appearance of female genitalia are much more relevant to both men and women.

Medical or functional indications/reasons for labiaplasty (labia surgery) can include asymmetry (uneven dimensions of the labia) or labial hypertrophy disorders, such as the need for the reduction of tissue from overly large or thick labia minora that can result in constant irritation in tight pants and discomfort when engaging in sports or other physical activities. These are labeled functional issues. In many of these cases, most women are either born with large labia or they become enlarged at puberty. Sometimes they may develop this condition with childbirth (torn tissues) or age. In these cases, surgery of the labia represents a relatively safe solution.

Aesthetic and self-esteem indications/reasons for labiaplasty are largely being driven by societal evolution regarding sexual habits, wants, and expectations. There is a societal evolution currently occurring about how men and women perceive each other in areas of sexual expectation, SPECIFICALLY when it comes to sexual performance and appearance. This is a perfectly normal expectation. Women in everyday life are now demanding more options when it comes to a safe, accepted, minor surgical procedure that helps one’s self-esteem. Most women seek sculpting of the labia to achieve a better look for themselves and their sexual partner. This can include even age-related enhancement for women who are older and want a return to the youthful look they had when they were younger. And today, this can usually be accomplished through labia reduction surgery . . . now at a reasonable cost. The bottom line is that aesthetic surgical labial reduction can greatly improve the aesthetic appearance and functionality of abnormally enlarged labia, (labial hypertrophy) and improve self-esteem.
