An article in the Sydney Morning Herald revealed the increasing popularity of labiaplasty in Australia. Based on the article, approximately 1,565 claims of medical rebates for labioplasty were made in 2010-11, which is more than double the claims made in 2000-01 (these statistics also included medical rebates for vulvoplasty). That clearly shows more and more people are realizing the value of labioplasty.
In order to get a better understanding of the procedure, some misconceptions concerning it have to be corrected:
1. Don’t Go for the Surgical Operation to Get Someone Else’s Look
There are numerous reasons why anyone would want a reshaping of their feminine body parts. However, you first need to be well aware that every single person has a unique shape and look. Therefore, the main purpose of seeking the procedure shouldn’t be to get someone else’s look.
If you do feel embarrassed by your body image, especially when you wear tight-fitting clothes, the procedure can help you achieve a better look. This is normally the case if you have excessively lengthened body parts.
2. Reshaping Doesn’t Improve Sexual Sensation
If you seek labioplasty with the intention of improving sexual sensation, you would be gravely mistaken. However, it is true that the operation may help you get rid of the embarrassment you may feel when exposing you body during intimacy. Definitely, having a good body image would go a long way in helping you enjoy those intimate moments.
3. Regular Vibrator Use Doesn’t Create Large Feminie Body Parts
There are basically two key instances in which you may develop large feminie body parts. In the first instance, you may simply have a large body part right from birth; and in the second instance, it may develop due to a significant experience such as child birth. Use of a vibrator definitely isn’t significant enough to make you end up with such a situation.
4. Reduction Doesn’t Destroy Sexual Sensation
Just as some people may wrongly assume that reshaping would improve sexual sensation, so also others would assume that reduction can reduce sensation. The fact is that sexual stimulation has nothing to do with size; hence, you wouldn’t lose any sensation by having it reduced.
On the contrary, you might actually avoid pain and discomfort that normally occurs due to stretching in case of lengthiness. This is definitely a plus, rather than a negative.
5. Labioplasty Isn’t Handled by a Gynaecologist
A Gynaecologist might handle many aspects of your feminine health, but one that he/ she would not handle is labioplasty. This cosmetic genital operation is beyond the medical qualification of such a professional; hence, it requires someone who has specialized training in cosmetic surgery.
Cosmetic surgeons are well versed in numerous surgical operations, including labioplasty. The best ones have had numerous successful operations; hence, they would be the best option when you seek this kind of surgery.
6. Even the Best Cosmetic Surgery Would Have Some Scarring
Being a type of procedure that would involve some incision, this operation would always have scarring regardless of how well it’s carried out. Scarring is simply a normal healing process of the body. However, a highly qualified surgeon would ensure that such scarring is as minimal as possible and its visibility is reduced significantly.
