Women who struggle with sagging skin and excess labial tissues in the vaginal area may find themselves embarrassed by the look of their genitals. They may also feel self-conscious about enjoying sexual intercourse. Others may find that the sagging, excess skin is rubbing against their clothing and causing discomfort. With procedures such as the labial wing lift performed by Dr. Ellen Mahony of Westport, CT, women can tighten and lift these tissues for a more pleasing appearance and to provide relief from friction.
Is a labial wing lift right for you?
Some women may be wondering if a labial wing lift is the right procedure for them. This is a cosmetic surgery procedure that lifts and reshapes the labia minora (inner lips of the vagina) or the labia majora (outer lips). The goal of this surgery is to improve the appearance of the genital area and give it a more youthful appearance. There are a few things to consider before you decide if a labial wing lift is right for you.
- First, it is important to understand that the results of this surgery are not permanent. They will last for as long as you keep your weight stable. If you gain or lose weight after the surgery, your results will change as well.
- Patients should also be realistic about what this surgery can achieve. It cannot correct all the problems associated with the appearance of the labia minora. It can only correct mild to moderate sagging. If you have a significant amount of sagging, this surgery may not be right for you.
- Education on the risks associated with this surgery is also vital to making a knowledgeable decision about moving forward. These include bleeding, infection, and scarring.
