Labiaplasty: Boosting Women’s Confidence in Yoga Pants
The American Society for Aesthetic Surgery has noted that more and more women are seeking aesthetic procedures for their genital area. Labiaplasty surgery requests have risen 48% in recent years, and Dr. David Ghozland says labiaplasty in his Los Angeles practice is definitely a popular option.
A motivation for women who are unhappy with the look of the labia is the desire to look more aesthetically pleasing in athletic clothing such as yoga pants. Because yoga pants are extremely form-fitting, the tight fitting spandex pants can definitely accentuate vaginal lips that are large or distended, causing self-consciousness and sometimes physical chafing and discomfort during physical activity.
Grooming trends may also be an influencing factor when it comes to the increased demand for labiaplasty surgery requests. Popular waxing techniques like the Brazilian bikini wax can leave the vaginal area visibly exposed, accentuating the size and shape of the labia area. Women who were not previously self-conscious may suddenly find themselves embarrassed by the size, length or shape of their vaginal lips. Women with enlarged or elongated labia minora often complain of:
• Discomfort during exercise
• Painful intercourse
• Self-consciousness about their appearance
• Difficulty wearing swimwear or work out wear
Whether an abnormally large labia is the result of stretching during childbirth, hormonal changes or genetic reasons, any woman is a candidate for labiaplasty.
According to Dr. Ghozland, the procedure is a minimally invasive and successfully removes excess and/or uneven labial tissue from the vaginal lips.
Labiaplasty surgery is an extremely effective option to resolve these issues. The procedure is performed in-office using local anesthetic. Women who undergo the procedure not only feel no pain, but are often relaxed, chatting with the doctor, watching a movie or reading. Recovery time is minimal, too.
In his Los Angeles OB/GYN office, Dr. Ghozland offers labiaplasty surgery and other advanced, state-of-the-art procedures to help women boost their confidence, look better in yoga pants, enjoy improved sexual intimacy and heightened self-esteem.
