This is a problem that can be corrected with an-outpatient surgery providing dramatic results for the woman, said Dr. Greg Owens
Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) June 25, 2015
As more and more women seek the services of a plastic surgeon to do reconstructive surgery on their most private part, Dr. Greg Owens, a specialist surgeon in the area of gynecology and urology, and has the ability and knowledge to perform this most intimate of all surgeries.
“About 35% of labiaplasty surgeries are for improved sexual experience. The process of childbirth sometimes alters the labia, preventing women from experiencing the same sexual gratification as they had before childbirth,” said Dr. Greg Owens.
He went on to say that about 30% of the women request this surgery because of discomfort: in sexual intercourse, in the way their clothes fit, and often even in walking, sitting and standing. Hygiene plays a part in the decision as well. The balance of the surgeries are done for cosmetic purposes only."This is a simple surgery, performed as an out-patient, which will result in dramatic results for the woman," Dr. Owens said.
The Labiaplasty surgery has gotten increasingly more popular over the last ten years or so. Due to women who want the perfect body (ie. Breast implants, tummy tucks, liposuction) why not strive for what they perceive to be the perfect vagina? While that can be a secondary plus, Dr. Owens said the bulk of his patients are not for cosmetic reasons.
There are about 10% of women who have large labia from birth, causing them to be embarrassed and even self-conscious when wearing a bathing suit or tight fitting pants. Until this surgery came to light, they had no recourse of changing their appearance. Many women experience some change in the looks of their labia after childbirth, but not to the extent of wanting surgery. After the second and third child, however, more are uncomfortable with both the sexual sensation (or lack thereof) and the physical appearance.
The surgery itself takes between one to two hours depending on the extent of the revision. Patients are home the same day as the surgery and the results are dramatic. Because Dr. Owens specializes in surgery of the female pelvis he is uniquely qualified to perform this operation.
