Many women nowadays seek the assistance of aesthetic applications to improve the appearance of their genital area. In recent years, there has been a significant increase in the number of vaginoplasty, labiaplasty, and other genital aesthetic procedures performed. According to a recent study, the number of genital aesthetic operations performed in the last five years has increased by 49 percent.
Genital aesthetic surgery is a relatively new and rapidly growing subspecialty within the larger field of gynaecology. Surgical procedures that alter the aesthetic or functional aspects of the genital area are included. Although many procedures are performed in the field of genital aesthetics, the most commonly used procedures are vaginal tightening, labia minora reduction, clitoral valve reduction, and vaginoplasty.
What Causes Sagging of the Inner Lip (Labia Minor)?
Everyone has a unique set of facial features, body type, and skin colour. The female genital area, known as the vulva, differs from person to person as well. The lips are included in the vulva. The outer lips are referred to as the labia majora, while the inner lips are referred to as the labia minora.
The inner lips are not symmetrical in the majority of women. As a result, one of the lips may be larger, thicker, or longer than the other. In either case, it does not imply that you have a medical problem.
Most women have no issues with their lips because of their size or shape. You might not notice if your lips are drooping slightly. The inner lips, on the other hand, are more sensitive than the outer lips. As a result, if you have sagging of the inner lip, you may experience pain and clothing tightness.
What are the Causes of Inner Lip Structural Changes?
It’s possible that one of your legs is longer than the other. Your inner and outer lips in your genital area are unlikely to be identical. There is no such thing as an inner lip standard size. The cause of structural changes in the inner lips is not always obvious. Among the possible causes are:
- Factors of genetic origin,
- Adolescent Development
- Oestrogen levels rise.
- During pregnancy, blood flow to the genital area increases, causing textural changes in the area.
- Inner lip sagging can occur as a result of infection or trauma to the area in some cases.
Tightening of the Vagina (Vaginoplasty)
Vaginoplasty is a surgical procedure that removes vaginal loosening. It tightens the vaginal muscles and soft tissues as well as the surrounding muscles and soft tissues.
Following delivery, vaginal enlargement or loosening may occur. This naturally leads to vaginal dysfunction. Vaginal tightening surgery is one of the most commonly used procedures for women suffering from this condition, both functionally and aesthetically.
The most common risks of vaginal tightening surgery are bleeding, infection, and scarring, all of which are uncommon. During the surgery, the bleeding is controlled and stopped, and antibiotics are administered to prevent infection. Scarring is uncommon after vaginoplasty.
Recovery Time Following Vaginoplasty
Following the treatment, you will be asked to follow some rules, as with all surgeries, in order to speed up the healing process. It is not recommended that patients lift heavy objects. During the recovery period, you are not permitted to enter the pool or take a bath in the tub. 6 weeks after surgery, you can resume your normal activities. Also, remember to take your doctor-prescribed medications on a regular basis.
