Intimacy can be the most fulfilling and rewarding thing in our lives. When you aren’t fully confident during that special time, it can affect your self-esteem and your ability to be fully in the moment during intimate encounters with your partner.
With the emerging sexual health and medical technologies, you no longer have to suffer with intimacy confidence. There are many procedures available that can greatly enhance your sexual health, your confidence, and your special intimate moments.
One of the main concerns for women is the size and shape of their labia, the skin around the vaginal opening. During the normal process of aging, post-childbirth, or after significant weight loss, a woman’s labia can go through many changes. These changes are common and more normal than you might think, and. unfortunately, the normal labia changes can contribute to a lack of sexual confidence. Alternately, some labia concerns are congenital and existed since birth.
At Nouvelle Confidence located in Elizabeth and Linden, New Jersey, we offer many different labiaplasty procedures that will address your specific needs and wants. We believe that all women should be their most confident selves during intimacy, and we are here to help!
It is important to research the different types of labiaplasty technologies and procedures available so that you can make the best decision for your goals—whether they are functional, aesthetic, or both. Here are some of the labiaplasty procedures that we provide at Nouvelle Confidence:
Laser labiaplasty: reduction of the labia minora
The labia minora are the “inner lips” of the labia. At times, the inner lips can extend beyond that of the outer (labia majora) lips, causing a woman to be self-conscious, which can take its toll on fully enjoying intimacy.
Laser technology is available that can help reduce the size and alter the shape of the labia minora, and this can be accomplished according to one’s specific aesthetic goals. Elongated, unequal, or dark labia minora are very common complaints in women seeking cosmetic vaginal surgery. This technique can also reconstruct labia conditions that are due to the aging process, childbirth trauma, injury, or for functional reasons, such as discomfort when wearing tight-fitting clothing, when exercising, or during intercourse.
Using a laser, excess tissue is removed from the labia minora, making it smaller and symmetrical, with minimal bleeding. This greatly enhances the overall aesthetics, thus providing a more youthful look.
Laser labiaplasty: reduction of the labia majora
Laser labiaplasty of the labia majora is the most common female genital cosmetic surgery procedure; it reduces the size and/or tightens the labia majora (larger, outer labia/lips of the vulva and the vaginal opening.). Sagging and loose labia majora can usually be seen in women with greater skin elasticity, in older women who have lost their skin tone, and in women who have lost a lot of weight. The result is a more youthful, taught, and aesthetically appealing vulva that has symmetry in both labia size and shape.
The laser labiaplasty procedure. After surgical marking of the excess labia to be removed the tissue is grasped with a forceps and the laser incision with the CO2 laser is used to remove the excess tissue. Following removal of excess tissue, the wound is then closed with dissolving sutures. Because the Laser Labiaplasty incision seals and closes blood vessels as the incision is made there is minimal to no surgical bleeding. Thus, with laser labiaplasty, blood vessels are closed without the need for surgical clamping, which can cause tissue damage to the delicate labia areas.
Benefits of laser labiaplasty:
- The laser labiaplasty techniques result in rapid healing and resumption of daily activities in a short period of time.
- Laser labiaplasty has been described as a safe procedure with a high level of patient satisfaction.
- Studies have shown that laser surgical incisions heal with less inflammation than traditional scalpel incisions. The laser is a much gentler method for removing excess labial tissue than that of traditional surgical methods.
Augmentation Labiaplasty using the fat transfer technique
Fat transfer to the labia, also called“labia puffing”, is a procedure that enhances the size or shape of the outer lips of the vagina. In a young woman, the labia Majora will usually be full, perky, and plump. In an older women, they tend to be thinner or smaller, and, because of the volume loss, they will often result in a sagging appearance. As we age the body loses the subcutaneous fat (fat that lies directly under the skin) and the skin gets thinner and more fragile, especially in the labia region.
Fat transfer to the labia majora can provide a more aesthetically enhanced and youthful appearing vulva. This procedure also improves the fullness and firmness of the labia Majora, while eliminating sagging skin, and improving the contour of the Labia Majora.
This procedure consists of removal of the patient’s own fat via liposuction and transplanting it into the labia majora. It may be performed in conjunction with in-office liposculpture treatment.
Benefits of augmentation labiaplasty from fat transfer:
- Softer, more natural-looking results.
- It is a “biologically organic” approach that uses your body’s own fat.
- It is a minimally invasive procedure.
- There’s very little downtime and a short recovery process.
- The results have shown to be long-lasting in most patients.
- Many patients have reported an improvement in confidence levels in their personal appearance post-procedure.
Vulvar Lipoplasty/Mons Pubis Liposuction
This includes liposculpture of the mons pubis and upper parts of the labia majora. Some women have a “fat pad” overlying their pubic bone or of “fat” labia majora. In-office liposculpture can alleviate the unsightly fatty bulges of this area and produce an aesthetically pleasing, thinner, and younger contour.
*Some pain and discomfort can be expected after any form of labiaplasty, but this can be alleviated with medication ice packing, proper genital hygiene, light daily activity, wearing loose clothing, and avoiding sex intercourse for at least one month after the labiaplasty procedure.
With a labiaplasty you can:
Restore self-confidence: during intimate situations or in public when wearing tight undergarments or swimwear;
Reduce pain and discomfort when exercising, wearing specific garments, or having sexual intercourse;
Reduce excess tissue that causes the inner labia to “hang down” below the level of the outer labia;
Correct the look of an asymmetrical labia and improve its appearance.
