Labiaplasty Fort Worth
Many women who are unhappy with the appearance of their labia choose to undergo a labiaplasty in Fort Worth. A labiaplasty is a procedure to reshape or reduce long or uneven labia to give a more aesthetically pleasing appearance to the external vaginal structures.
Who Is a Good Candidate for a Labiaplasty?
If you are suffering from physical or emotional distress due to the size and/or appearance of the labia, you may be a good candidate for this procedure. There are many changes to the vaginal area with child birth, aging, and gravity.
These changes can make a woman very self-conscious about her body. Large labia can make intercourse or physical activities uncomfortable. They can also bulge and cause embarrassment in clothing. A labiaplasty allows women to have a more youthful appearance to their labia that makes them feel better about themselves, makes intercourse and physical activities less painful, and allows clothes to fit better.
