Have you considered undergoing Labiaplasty to improve your vagina’s appearance or performance? Well, certainly you are not the only one. There are many women from all over the world who have done this procedure in their life, including me. And today, I am going to tell you about my journey that I started three years ago. So, let’s scroll down and find out how I motivated myself in the first place to go through Labiaplasty. And how I overcame the post-treatment with a smile on my face.
How Did I Found Out About My Abnormal Vaginal Appearance-
When I was 16 years old, I noticed for the first time that my vagina didn’t look like other girls.On the other hand, my labia tissue was more distended or uneven. And day by day, it was becoming more pointed from my outer labia.
I kept ignoring and delayed the treatment until I started to feel uncomfortable down there, I Googled my symptoms. They told me that I had a long labia minora which I needed to remove through Labiaplasty. I decided to undergo labiaplasty in Delhi.
What is Labiaplasty? Who Should Have It?
Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that can reduce the length of your labia if it is growing longer than what feels comfortable. Your vulva is the external genitalia that surrounds your vagina, and the vulva is where the labia is. There are two sets of labia—labia majora and labia minora. Labia majora is the outer lips of your vagina where you grow pubic hair. And the minora is close to your clitoris, which is sensitive to touch. Labiaplasty is generally a tissue reducing treatment for labia minora.
All labia come in different shapes and sizes, and that’s the reason why doctors don’t easily recommend Labiaplasty. But if you absolutely need it, then you should go for it as there are only a few risks and complications involved. If your labia is more than five or six centimetres in length, then it must feel uncomfortable.
What I Have Experienced on the Surgery Day-
Honestly, I felt nervous and a little bit anxious on my surgery day, but I also eased out when my doctor told me to watch a movie. After an hour or so, they began to prepare me for the procedure, and I was nervous once again. But this time, a little less than the previous time. But when they put me into the operation theatre, I didn’t know what was going to happen.
That’s all. When I woke up after the surgery, it was about 2-3 hours after the treatment. I felt a heavy numbness down there, but that’s all. There was no discomfort or anything. All went well for that day, and I was quite happy to get my vagina in the normal shape.
What’s Normal After Labiaplasty and What’s Not-
After the Labiaplasty, you will witness some natural symptoms that are quite common. Have a look at these things that may occur around your vagina after Labiaplasty.
- Little swelling and inflammation around your vaginal area after the surgery is not something to worry about.
- You may also experience some spotting after the treatment. Generally, spotting occurs due to hormonal changes, but except this time, it is only blood. Don’t let the spotting be continuous or excessive, instead, contact your doctor.
- You may also see some vaginal discharge after the surgery. If the amount is greater than usual and contains a bad smell or an unusual color, see your surgeon.
- If you feel pain or irritation after or any sort of discomfort after the surgery, you can take medication to calm the pain. Basically, these sort of symptoms are normal and have nothing to worry about.
What Not To Do After the Surgery-
You can generally go back to your regular routine after three to four days after the surgery. But like most other surgeries, there are some restrictions that you need to maintain. Restrictions are listed below-
- Don’t get involved in sexual penetration or masturbation after Labiaplasty for at least a month.
- Don’t use tampons or menstrual cups for at least 4 weeks after Labiaplasty. Use sanitary napkins or plain clothes instead.
- Never do waxing or shaving of the pubic area while you are healing.
- In case of any discharge, unusual pain or any kind of discomfort that lasts even after 4 weeks, contact your surgeon.
