More and more women are opting for Labiaplasty procedures with each passing year, yet there doesn’t seem to be a corresponding increase in the amount of information about it out there. This means that more and more women are also asking – what’s Labiaplasty?
Well, let me clear the air for everyone that has been wondering this newly trending question “what’s labiaplasty?”. It is a surgical procedure intended to alter the size and or shape of labia minora. This is accomplished by removing excess tissue. Labiaplasty, along with a number of other “mommy makeover” procedures, has risen very quickly in popularity. In fact Labiaplasty popularity rose by 44% between 2012 and 2013, with more than 5,000 procedures performed.
Some women suffer a great deal of discomfort caused by enlarged or hanging labia. This can be especially uncomfortable when wearing tight clothes or engaging in certain physical activities like riding a bike. Not only can this cause physical discomfort, but it is commonly attributed to a diminished self-confidence as well.
Dr. Christine Hamori is a board-certified plastic surgeon. Based in Duxbury, Massachusetts, she performs about four to five labiaplasty procedures a week. Dr. Hamori notes, “I feel women are more comfortable coming to a female plastic surgeon for this procedure and many patients are very happy with the outcome of this surgery. “
She’s taught a course called Labiaplasty and Beyond, discussing her techniques and also exploring how the media plays into why women want to pursue this surgery.
