Labiaplasty. Labiaplasty, or cosmetic gynecology, is the fastest growing segment of cosmetic surgery in the U.S. The vast majority of women presenting for consideration of labiaplasty have normal genitalia. However, most women complain of discomfort with activities such as sports, bike riding, or during intercourse. Also, many do not like the appearance in certain clothes such as swimsuits, etc.
Increasing. While the interest in labiaplasty is increasing, it is not nearly as popular as breast implant surgery or liposuction. It is increasing though. Ten years ago i was amongst a few surgeons in the area offering them. Now it is far more commonly offered by many more doctors. This is good and bad. http://www.cosmeticsurgerytruth.com/blog/?p=16542.
Popular w/ awareness. These are becoming increasingly popular as the awareness of this procedure has increased as an option for treating enlarged labia.
Very popular but ?#s. This is a highly popular procedure but the exact number of procedures is difficult to estimate because there are no ways to measure the volume of aesthetic procedures other than by surveys performed by asaps and they don't ask this question. Insurance data on covered procedures is not easily available for review.
Almost as popular as. Porn and sexting-these and women's magazines are the main driving force behind these surgeries. Some women truly need reduction of tissue but most are going for what they think is that "porn look".
Is it safe to have vaginoplasty and labiaplasty procedures at the same time? Is it not recommended to have labiaplasty with other surgeries? I would rather be in recovery at one time, instead of having two operations and downtime and recovery for the 2nd
Yes, . Yes, this can be done safely. While it is safe to have these procedures done at the same time, only a few health care providers will do this. Express your concerns about recovery and cost to your plastic surgeon. Read more...
HI, I . Hi, i frequently perform these two procedures simultaneously. They, in fact, compliment each other nicely. The labiaplasty helps to tighten the vaginal introitus. Obviously you need to work with an experienced board certified surgeon to insure the optimal result. Please feel free to browse my website to examine pictures of simultaneous labiaplasty and vaginoplasty. All my best, daniel medalie, md www.Clevelandplasticsurgery.Com. Read more...
Yes. These operations are very frequently performed together and there is little increase in recovery with one or both. There are many surgeons who are highly trained and experienced in these operations so be sure do do your research before choosing a surgeon. Read more...
