Can Labiaplasty Revision Help With Sexual Intimacy?

It’s a common misconception that labiaplasty and labiaplasty revision can affect the internal functions of the vagina and sensations of the nerve endings—they don’t. However, labiaplasty revision can improve sexual satisfaction through a boost to self-confidence, physical comfort, and aesthetic enhancement.

What Is Labiaplasty Revision?

In too many cases, women have negative experiences with an initial labiaplasty. This is most commonly caused by the inexperience of the surgeon or physician performing the procedure. In other cases, non-compliance with recovery instructions can inhibit an effective healing process, resulting in an undesirable result.

Labiaplasty revision, or labiaplasty reconstructive surgery, is a secondary labiaplasty to improve the appearance and restore the function of the labia minora after a botched labiaplasty.

Labiaplasty is intended to reduce the size of the labia minora or inner lips of the vagina. For many women, the labia minora are too long, asymmetrical, discolored, or otherwise aesthetically unappealing. This can affect a woman’s self-confidence and ability to perform physical activities such as bicycling or running. It may even be physically uncomfortable.

Unfortunately, many physicians perform this procedure with inadequate training. They can provide dissatisfying results, such as asymmetric labia, over-excision of the tissue, or poor suturing that results in large, painful scars. In these cases, women seek labiaplasty revision to restore the look and feel of their labia minora.

Choosing the Best Labiaplasty Revision Surgeon

Experiencing an adverse result from your initial labiaplasty can have detrimental effects on your mental and emotional well-being. One of the essential aspects of cosmetic surgery is the patients' trust in their surgeons. When patients receive a botched result, that trust is broken.

It can be hard to come to terms with undergoing a secondary procedure, but living with a botched labiaplasty is even more challenging. That’s why it's crucial to choose the best labiaplasty revision surgeon possible, to ensure not just a fantastic outcome but to put your mind at ease during this process.

What Are the Sexual Benefits of Labiaplasty Revision?

Labiaplasty and labiaplasty revision deal strictly with the external tissues of the vagina. These procedures do not affect nerve endings, the clitoris, or vaginal tightness. Therefore, there is no direct correlation between labiaplasty and the physical aspect of sexual pleasure. However, labiaplasty revision can have transformative benefits for sexual satisfaction through physical comfort, self-confidence, and emotional well-being.

When it comes to sexual satisfaction, physical and emotional comfort are key factors that women seek out. Ironically, the same women who need labiaplasty revision initially sought the first procedure to improve their sexual confidence through aesthetic improvement.

When you feel good about yourself and are uninhibited by self-doubt, sexual intimacy and sexual satisfaction are much more accessible. Experiencing physical and emotional discomfort from enlarged or botched labia can significantly detract from your ability to engage in a healthy sex life.

Labiaplasty revision surgery can give you the confidence you need to feel at home in your skin—and celebrate your body through comfortable, satisfying sex.
