Vaginal Rejuvenation in Charlotte With Dr. Erik Miles
Vaginal Rejuvenation in Huntersville
Women are often self-conscious about their bodies. They feel uncomfortable and unhappy because their belly isn’t flat enough or their arms jiggle when they wave. Maybe they dislike the shape of their nose or are displeased with the size of their breasts. One thing that often goes unmentioned is their emotional or physical discomfort caused from an enlarged labia. The sometimes embarrassing topic, however, can be addressed with the aid of vaginal rejuvenation.
What is vaginal rejuvenation?
Vaginal rejuvenation is a procedure that is gaining popularity as more and more people become aware of the surgery. Some women have an enlarged labia minora, causing them emotional, and sometimes physical pain. The surgical procedure, also known as labiaplasty, involves trimming or removing excess tissue from the labia minora, or inner genital lips. The process is extremely safe and allows women to be more comfortable, both mentally and physically.
Why do women have vaginal rejuvenation?
A common misconception is that vaginal rejuvenation is strictly for older women who have experienced multiple childbirths and whose bodies have suffered from the experience. While these women do benefit greatly from the procedure, many young women who have never had children may benefit from vaginal rejuvenation. Women who have a large labia minora, a condition known as hypertrophy, may experience pain, particularly while sitting or wearing tighter clothing. Some women have enlarged labia minora because of a genetic trait passed from one generation to the next. Hormonal fluctuations, such as menopause and pregnancy can also contribute to the condition. Even the aging process itself can contribute to an elongated labial size.
The procedure can eliminate pain for those women who are suffering. Individuals who choose labiaplasty often undergo the surgery for an improved aesthetic look, to feel more comfortable in certain types of clothing, or to improve the sexual experience.
What does the procedure entail?
Labiaplasty in Charlotte is an outpatient procedure completed in approximately two hours on average, although less complex procedures may be shorter. Patients will be placed under general anesthesia and monitored by highly experienced anesthesiologists. Advanced techniques are utilized to minimize scarring with great attention to nerve positioning. Any excess tissue of the labia minora, labia majora, or clitoral hood is removed as needed. Each surgical procedure is specialized for the individual patient’s needs. Absorbable sutures are used to close the incision sites. Dr. Erik Miles provides the utmost care and attention, combined with his extensive training to ensure the procedure is performed correctly to preserve sensation.
What can I expect after labiaplasty?
Dr. Miles will prescribe you all necessary topical ointments and oral pain medication for post care. Absorptive pads are used after surgery and some minor bruising and swelling is expected. An icepack can be used as needed. Patients are encouraged to move around to promote circulation and avoid discomfort associated with prolonged sitting. Depending on the extent of each individual procedure, patients can usually return to normal activities after one to two weeks, although exercise and intercourse should be avoided for six weeks. Dr. Miles will schedule one or two follow up visits during the first week after surgery and one six weeks post op appointment to ensure proper healing.
