Laser Labiaplasty Procedure Explained

by

When it comes to reconstructing the appearance of the lips of the external female genitalia, one procedure expert cosmetic surgeons and women trust is the laser labiaplasty method. And if you do happen to need help with improving the appearance of your genitals, you surely will find this piece on the procedure to help answer some of the questions about the best possible method of solving the problem.

In the sections below, you will find a better explanation for the procedure and answers to some of the FAQs you may have regarding the safety and cost of the technique.

What Is Laser Labiaplasty?

Laser labiaplasty is a cosmetic procedure that aims to enhance the appearance of the female genitalia with the use of surgical enhancement either at the labia minora or labia majora or both. This cosmetic gynecological procedure has become a trusted method for women looking to improve the natural appearance of the feminine organ.

There are many reasons why women may be interested in getting this process underway. For the majority, it could be that enlarged labia may cause pains during intercourse or that the external lips appear too large or loose which could be as a result of aging, childbirth, or a side effect from weight loss. The labiaplasty process could either be done on the labia minora or on that involves changes to the labia majora.

Labiaplasty Minora

In some cases, the inner lips that extend out of the female genitalia may appear enlarged and appear uneven and this can result in a painful sexual experience, and for many hinder their confidence and ability to wear certain types of clothes. The process aims to fix the inner lips of the feminine organ by the use of surgical techniques that helps to remove the excess skin, reshape the natural appearance, eliminate dark areas, adjust the outer and inner lips, adjust the clitoral hood which will surely help to improve sexual pleasure.

Labiaplasty Majora 

If the outer lips of the external part of the female organ appear enlarged, loose, this is the ideal procedure to set things back to normal. It aims to reduce the size and improve its natural appearance by first getting rid of the additional fat and then constricting the excess skin. The popular method used here is the labia majora augmentation which is ideal to improve the appearance and increase the size it appears too small. By so doing, this helps to improve the female physical confidence and also works magic to enhance sexual performance.

What’s Involved In Laser Labiaplasty?

To sculpt the skin around the opening of the vagina, extreme caution and experience are needed to ensure the job is perfectly done. And the first thing to do is to check with an expert cosmetic surgeon preferably one who specializes in aesthetic gynecology and a member of an international body that caters to issues of the female genitalia. When you check with one, they will carry out physical examinations and advice on the best possible methods to solve the issue.

Some specialists are not quickly open to scheduling patients for surgery especially if they find that the issue is more of one that does not pose a risk of painful intercourse but one that alters the physical appearance of the vagina. In this case, the patient may be referred to an expert psychologist with interest in cases of cosmetic gynecology to help advice on physiological problems that affect the confidence and outlook on their physical appearance. This link https://www.healthline.com/health/negative-body-image has more on understanding issues that lead to a negative impression about body image.

The Cutting Procedure 

For most clinics, a fine diathermy pencil is used to make the incisions on the vulva, and this is after careful markings have been made around the areas to make the incision to ensure a neat job. This type of pencil ensures precision and helps to reduce tissue damage during laser labiaplasty. Once the incisions have been made, an absorbable suture is used to ensure tight seals that don’t leave behind any scars once healing is complete.

In the case of augmentation, the specialist will decide to make use of natural body fat to achieve the process. They could also opt to make use of hyaluronic acid injected specifically into the labia majora, which will help achieve the same results. But you should know that for a long-lasting solution, it is preferred to go for the augmentation that involves the deposition of body fat as the use of hyaluronic acids tends to lose its elasticity over time.

While you surely will save more going with hyaluronic acid injection, and also spend less time for the procedure, you can find yourself with the same problem in less than a year. In the augmentation by natural body fat, using liposuction, fat is sourced from other parts of the body, which is then processed and injected into the vulva and blends with the natural appearance. And as earlier mentioned results in a long-lasting solution to the problem.

Timeline And Cost Of Treatment 

Ideally, you should not spend more than an hour or two on the operating table or chair, and this will depend on the expertise of the operating surgeon. You can expect the use of local anesthesia to help with pain relief during the laser cutting process. Although you won’t experience pain during the operation, you will also be provided pain killers to help deal with the pains that ensue a few days after the operation. It is also normal to experience swelling around the vulva up to 5 days after the procedure. This page has more on how to deal with swellings around the vulva.

The cost of the laser labiaplasty procedure will depend on the clinic you work with and the extent of treatment needed to be performed. But if you need professional treatment from an expert aesthetic gynecologist, you can spend somewhere between $4500 to $6000.

Final Note 

While there is the need to be conscious about the appearance of the female genitalia, experts advise that the laser labiaplasty procedure be seen as a last result and prescribed only when you suffer from pain during intercourse. It may be a stretch to want to reverse the natural aging process by opting for a tighter vagina. But if this is something you want, no one can stop you. You will only need to do well to ensure you work with an expert in the field.

My Experience with Vascular Laser Treatment

by

This is a bit random, but I thought I’d share my recent experience with getting a vascular laser treatment. I’m really happy with the results and it was actually less painful and more affordable than I realized, so just thought I’d share in case it’s helpful to anyone. 🙂

I mentioned this on Instagram, but I got a few broken blood vessels on my face and neck while I was pregnant. A couple of them were basically smack in the middle of my forehead. While I am so, so grateful I was able to get pregnant, these new little spots were not my favorite side effect that stuck with me even after my son was born. So, I decided to do some research and see what, if anything, I could do about them.

Here is a before and after photo from my experience. See the little red dots on my forehead, between my eyebrows? Those were the spots that annoyed me the most. I also had a few around the bridge of my nose and near my collarbone. These broken blood vessels showed up sometime around the end of my first trimester. As I was researching solutions, I found that a vascular laser treatment was something I could try. For me, this was available through a dermatologist’s office, and a registered nurse was able to administer the treatment. It does not require any numbing agents and only takes a few minutes. I won’t lie, it does hurt. It feels like a needle going into your skin (it’s not, it’s a laser). But it’s super quick and way less painful than any of my tattoos.

Vascular laser treatments can also work for cherry angiomas (cherry moles). I have a lot of those, and so at the same appointment I had a few of the most prominent ones removed as well.

Here’s another before photo where you can see the largest cherry mole I had treated (on the side of my face between my eyebrow and hairline).

This is probably obvious, but except for the first photo in this post, all these photos are unedited and I have no makeup on. You can see I also have melasma, which had gotten darker during my pregnancy.

Here is what my skin looked like immediately after the laser treatment. All the red splotchy spots are areas where I had a broken blood vessel or cherry moles treated.

And here is what it looked like the next day. The areas that were treated turn darker at first, and the cherry moles turn almost black and then fall off within a week or two. I wear sunscreen everyday already (I’m very fair skinned and burn easily), but I was cautioned by the nurse to be extra careful for the following few weeks after the treatment to always wear sunscreen and hats because the sensitive skin could scar/discolor more easily from the sun while it was healing.

And here is what my skin looked like two weeks after the treatment. As you can see, the large cherry mole on the side of my face is still somewhat visible. After my first treatment, they already had scheduled a follow up for four weeks later to see if any of the spots would need a second treatment, and it looks like this is one spot that probably will. But pretty much everything else was good after just one treatment—especially the middle-of-my-forehead broken vessels.

I went to Ozarks Dematology Specialists (in Springfield, Missouri) for this vascular laser treatment. It only took about 15 minutes and cost $150. The price will vary based on how many spots/how much time you need. And it would likely vary based on where you live. But I just wanted to share what it was for me, for reference. This was not something my insurance would cover, as it was cosmetic in nature rather than going to the dermatologist to be checked for skin cancer (which is also a very important thing to do).

Thanks for letting me share this very random experience with you all. I love skin care stuff. I am constantly trying new moisturizers, masks, facials, and other things. I also love trying new makeup. I view it all as super fun and for me, self care. xo. Emma
