Genital aesthetics is one of the most popular aesthetic operations today. A beautiful appearance is an important factor that makes women feel safe, happy and attractive. In this regard, women’s dissatisfaction with their genital area and its appearance lead to decreased quality of sexual life.
It should be noted that there is no specific and standard perception of beauty regarding the genital area. However, if certain issues are disturbing the patient, quite simple surgical interventions can be performed to correct them.
Some genital aesthetic problems can also lead to functional health problems. For example, if the patient has larger inner lips than usual, it may lead to dissatisfaction regarding appearance while causing pain during sexual intercourse.
Correction of this problem with simple genital aesthetic interventions can enable women to have much more confidence in their sexual life and daily life.
What is Labiaplasty?
Labiaplasty refers to aesthetic procedures for large and small lips on the side of the genital area. Labium refers to the lips that make up the external genital structure. Correction of the inner and outer lips by aesthetic operations is performed with labioplasty.
Advanced age and difficult births may lead to these problems over time. Other than sexual intercourse, asymmetry, size or prolapse of the inner and outer lips can cause undesired appearance when wearing swimsuits or tights.
How Long Does the Inner Lip Prolapse Surgery Last?
The reduction of the inner lips is performed under local anesthesia or general anesthesia. The operation is completed in approximately 30 minutes. The procedure is performed after the small lips are numbed. The patient can be discharged on the same day if no postoperative complications arise.
Dissolvable stitches are used during the operation. Therefore, stitches dissolve in 2-3 weeks. The patient can return to sexual activity in a month. No operation scar occurs. However, the patient may experience sensitivity in the area.
What is Vaginoplasty?
Vaginoplasty is a procedure to tighten the vagina. The vagina can expand due to child delivery, genetics, or advanced age. Serious problems can occur during sexual intercourse due to deformities.
In vaginoplasty, tissue excess is removed and tightening procedures are performed. Tissue rejuvenation is also achieved with this process. The operation is performed under general anesthesia. It is completed in approximately 30-45 minutes.
Treatment of Postpartum Scars
An episiotomy may be required during normal delivery. Some incisions may be necessary in this process.
When made poorly, an aesthetically undesired appearance may occur in the genital area. Scar tissues can be repaired simply by using local anesthesia at this stage.
Hymenoplasty – Hymen Reconstruction
Hymen reconstruction is also performed within the scope of genital aesthetics. Hymenoplasty is the process of surgical restoration of the hymen. It is not a procedure applied with aesthetical concerns. Hymen reconstruction is possible as long as the torn hymen parts are not missing.
