Can labiaplasty surgery improve sexual arousal?

considering labiaplasty surgery

Many people may assume that having your labial tissue reduced will lower your sexual sensitivity. Nothing could be far from the truth! The labiaplasty procedure does not alter or remove any of your nerves, and actually it reforms the labia in ways that can improve your sexual satisfaction.

What is labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty reduces the size of your clitoral hood, which makes the clitoris more revealed in sexual intercourse. It is a delicate operation which results in more exposure of the clitoris. Many women wish to find surgeons with ample experience for the procedure. Having this procedure for many has meant that the clitoris becomes more prominent and requires less stimulation in order for arousal, which means foreplay will be even more enjoyable than before the procedure.

Unlike more intensive procedures such as breast augmentation, the labiaplasty surgery can be done under local anesthesia. The procedure takes around one hour and can be performed at the doctors medical office. It is possible for the patient to be wide awake if they prefer not to go under general anesthesia.

If you have been experiencing pain down there, then having labiaplasty surgery can mean that your sensitive areas become more comfortable and painless. People who opt for this procedure may state that they suffer soreness from activities such as riding a horse or a bike, and sometimes even from wearing tight pants. The soreness reduces your sexual desires and can lead to further problems during sexual activities. If you are experiencing some pain before and after intercourse, then labiaplasty can help to reduce the pain. Labiaplasty is great for fixing labia trauma from the likes of childbirth. If pain during sex started after childbirth, then consider having labiaplasty, which could be a way to rid the pain and enjoy more pleasure.


Benefits of labiaplasty.

  • Improve pain: If you have been experiencing pain in that area, it may be a result of excess skin around the vagina area. Labiaplasty could be a good option for you.
  • Improving your self-esteem: It is very common for your labia to extend overtime, so people tend to see this as a sign of aging. By tightening the appearance of the vagina through having excess skin around the vagina removed, many women report that they feel and look younger.
  • Increase your sexual satisfaction: By reducing the size of your labia  you can improve sensitivity in the area, and the sexual function and ability to orgasm is likely to happen quicker as more of the clitoris is exposed.

Labiaplasty and your happiness.

Although we might consider the clitoris as the hero, did you know that the most important organ in sex is the brain?  Healthy sex should make you to feel wanted, appreciated, beautiful and happy. There is no such thing as an abnormal labia, however for some women they feel very self conscious about what they have. If your labia does not look the way you want it to then, you may feel shy and inadequate when you should be feeling confident and sexy.  If you feel self-conscious when it comes to having sex, then you are going to lack confidence and are less likely to be aroused.
Having low self-esteem can make sex worse, and for some women it can make them want to avoid sex altogether. Not only can this type of procedure make sex more enjoyable, but it can help women to feel more relaxed with their bodies. 

Having intercourse after the procedure.

After your procedure, you will need to allow some time for your lady parts to heal. It is best to wait around six weeks after having the procedure before having any sexual intercourse. You may also experience dryness down there which is quite common for up to three months after having the surgery. If this is the case it’s very important to use lubricant and have patience when beginning any sexual activities again.
