Sex After a Labiaplasty: Does Labiaplasty Affect Sensation?
When it comes to taking care of our bodies, there are many procedures that help women achieve the look and feel they want. A popular procedure known as a Labiaplasty was designed to help reduce the size and alter the appearance of the labia minora and labia majora. A labiaplasty can be performed for aesthetic reasons, or it can be performed to help combat discomfort or medical issues that might have arisen due to an enlarged labia.
While you may have already done your research on the labiaplasty procedure or spoken to your doctor about what the procedure entails, you may be wondering one more thing: What is sex after a labiaplasty like? Does it affect sensation?
What is a Labiaplasty?
A labiaplasty is a procedure that is done on the labia minora, labia majora, or both to create a better-looking vulva. Many times, women may seek a labiaplasty because they feel self-conscious about the look of their labia, or because they have issues wearing tight-fitting clothing.
In either situation, a labiaplasty can change the look of the labia by removing excess tissue and reconstructing the overall appearance of the area. A labiaplasty can be done through traditional surgical means, or it can even be done by laser, depending on what you want the desired outcome to be, as well as recovery.
About Recovery Time
Recovery from a labiaplasty can last up to six weeks, and it is important to listen to your body during this time. Be sure to rest and give the area time to heal before engaging in any form of sexual activity. If your doctor gives you specific instructions, be sure to follow them for your safety.
Sex After Labiaplasty: Does it Affect Sensation?
A major worry on the minds of many women who are considering a labiaplasty is how it will affect sensation during sex after the procedure is performed and everything has healed.
It is important to understand what happens during a labiaplasty procedure – when a labiaplasty is performed, no nerves are removed or damaged; instead, it is only tissue that is removed, and tissue has no nerve endings. Because of this, you needn’t worry about a decrease in sexual sensation after a labiaplasty – in fact, you won’t notice much of an increase, either.
In short, the amount of sensation that you feel after a labiaplasty will remain the same as it was before the procedure.
What you can expect, however, is a rise in self-confidence after a labiaplasty procedure, which can, in turn, help you feel a lot better in the bedroom.
