Knowing the Difference Between Labiaplasty and Vaginoplasty
In order to find the right procedure that will provide you with the results you desire, it is paramount that you do the proper research and have at least a basic understanding of the procedure. Knowing the difference between two similar procedures like vaginoplasty and labiaplasty will expedite the entire process before your surgery.
Vaginoplasty is a surgical procedure that tightens the internal muscles of the vagina. Vaginoplasty is primarily used to rejuvenate the vagina in order to improve its function, size, and shape.
Labiaplasty does not alter the vagina itself but instead focuses on correcting and adjusting the inner and outer lips (the labia minora and labia majora) that surround the vagina. Labiaplasty can correct asymmetry, reduce the thickness of the labia, reduce the size of the labia, and adjust the coloring of your labia to make it more even.
Both of these procedures provide a number of benefits, but knowing which option caters towards your needs will ensure your satisfaction with your results. Contact us to schedule a consultation. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sherif Khattab will provide you with excellent care.
