Cosmetic gynecology deals with changing the physical appearance of the genital organs, such as size, shape, symmetry, etc. It is often an elective procedure.
Cosmetic gynecology is of two kinds: Vaginoplasty and Labiaplasty
.Vaginoplasty is a procedure to tighten up a vagina that has become loose or slack owing to ageing or childbirth. It also increases sensitivity.
Labiaplasty is a surgery of the Labia Major or Labia Minor, in which the size, shape and symmetry of the labia is corrected. Labiaplasty may be performed separately or with Vaginoplasty, depending upon the case.
After treatment, the patient can return to daily routine within 3-4 days, depending on the level of surgery performed.It is advised to avoid any sexual activities for at least 3-4 weeks after the surgery.Any bleeding or abnormal discharge should be immediately informed to the doctor.Although widely practiced, it is advisable to women to not opt for cosmetic surgery. Instead, exercises can help to tone the loose muscles and even increase sensation, and a good counseling gynecologist can help improve self confidence and self esteem in a more constructive way.
