If you live in Birmingham, Alabama, menopause should not mark the end of your sex life. It should not make you dread having intercourse because of the pain you feel during or after sex. You can have labiaplasty surgery, a cosmetic procedure to trim the loose muscles on your outer labia. Learn more about the procedure that may be the answer to your vibrant sex life.
What causes your pain?
Menopause reduces the estrogen levels in your body, leaving the tissues on your vagina tight, thin and dry. This causes more friction and pain during and after you have sex. Anxiety, bad past experiences and urinary tract infections could also cause you pain.
How is labiaplasty done?
A labiaplasty can be done by our board-certified plastic surgeon at Schaffer Plastic Surgery in Birmingham, Alabama. In your consultation visit, the condition of your labia or the lips of your vagina will be examined. Our specialist will discuss with your sexual history to determine if other underlying issues are causing your pain.
Our plastic surgeon will want to help you deal with all issues that could be causing the pain so that you can enjoy the maximum benefits from the surgery. The consultation is personalized, and it is done in a private room. Our specialists are friendly and professional, and you will be at ease about your discussions.
What to do during recovery
Once the procedure is done, our plastic surgeon will advise you to wear loose clothes to avoid friction on the sore scar. You may have to abstain from sex until the incision heals. Although you may be able to go about your work in two or three days, you will see results after about six months.
After undergoing labiaplasty, your sex life will improve. This will raise your self-esteem, allowing you to be comfortable in both intimate and casual situations.
