After giving birth, especially if you’ve completed your family, you may be thinking about having some cosmetic surgery.

Many women consider a Mommy Makeover at this time, and if you have ever had any concerns about your labia, or noticed changes after childbirth, this might be an opportunity for a labiaplasty as well.

What Is Labiaplasty?

The labia are the set of inner lips (labia minora) and outer lips (labia majora) at the entrance of the vagina. When the inner lips are enlarged and protrude past the outer lips, this can cause a number of issues. 

After a post-vaginal delivery, the labia can undergo new changes, including stretching, sagging, asymmetry, and even tears in some cases. 

Women may complain about: 

  • Distress over cosmetic concerns
  • Discomfort in some clothes
  • Embarrassment
  • Loss of confidence

Labiaplasty uses advanced techniques to trim and tighten the labia minora. This procedure creates a delicate balance between the inner and outer lips with a more compact appearance.

What Can a Labiaplasty Do for Me?

If you have a naturally large or asymmetrical labia or your vaginal lips have been damaged during childbirth, a labiaplasty can provide the following benefits:

  • Smoother contour in and out of clothes
  • Vaginal lips that are are symmetrical and cosmetically appealing
  • Restored confidence and comfort

What Can’t a Labiaplasty Do?

A labiaplasty is a cosmetic procedure that cannot address urinary incontinence or sexual dysfunction. If you suffer from either of these conditions, a vaginoplasty may be necessary to restore function.

Vaginoplasty is designed to restore loose vaginal muscles improving issues like urinary leakage and vaginal dryness. 

What Is a Mommy Makeover?

Typically, a Mommy Makeover consists of a breast lift or breast augmentation along with liposuction or a tummy tuck. This highly customizable procedure can also include a labiaplasty if beneficial.

When Should I Schedule My Mommy Makeover With Labiaplasty?

It should be at least six months since you gave birth, possibly longer if you had a cesarean section. Ideally, you will have completed your family or are not planning to give birth in the future.

You will also want to have support during your recovery from surgery, which can last from two to four weeks on average.
