Breaking Down the Stigma Associated with Labiaplasty and Vaginoplasty
- Posted on: Jul 30 2018
Just like with most cosmetic procedures, there is a lot of stigmas that come with undergoing a procedure like a labiaplasty or a vaginoplasty. However, here at Dr. Benjamin Dunkley’s office, we have seen our patients experience life-changing results after undergoing one of these procedures. One of the things that we believe leads to negative conversations about these procedures is misinformation. To help our patients feel more informed, we have created a brief article debunking some common myths associated with both labiaplasty and vaginoplasty surgeries.
Myth: It Doesn’t Matter
Your sexuality and ability to have sexual satisfaction as a woman is important. And sometimes hormonal changes by either age or childbirth can make your vaginal wall a bit looser which can lead to an inability to feel sexually satisfied. With either a labiaplasty or a vaginoplasty, our hope is that you will be able to feel sexually satisfied and aroused after your surgery, like never before.
Myth: It’s All About Sex
Yes, it’s true that one of the reasons why patients opt to get this type of surgery is to feel more sexually gratified, but if you have delivered babies vaginally, then you know just how real urinary incontinence is. And, one of the biggest reasons why we perform these surgeries is to help patients gain more control over their bladder by tightening the vaginal lining and walls— leaving you with more control over your bladder functionality.
Myth: It’s Only For Young Women
Our philosophy when it comes to vaginoplasties and labiaplasties? You should be able to feel sexually satisfied at every stage of life. In other words, you are never too old. Whether you are in your seventies or twenties, you should be able to feel sexually aroused and satisfied each and every time you have intercourse.
Living a life full of satisfaction is worth it. If you want to learn more about undergoing a labiaplasty or a vaginoplasty, don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment at our Murray City office today and call us at (801) 268-2650.
