Dr. Alinsod explains why women undergo vaginal plastic surgery.
Well, when we reconstruct a pelvis, we are able to fix the prolapse of the bladder, prolapse of the rectum, and perhaps even suspend the urethra so the patient doesn’t leak. While we are in the same area, if she has had significant trauma to the area she may want to have a more symmetrical look in her labial appearance.
Hence, we are doing a lot more of the labial reconstruction, labial reduction surgery to make the appearance, not just the function but the appearance, overall pleasing to the patient’s eye and we can certainly do that with a labiaplasty that trims the large size or irregular size or the asymmetric size of the labia down to what looks more natural.
