Labiaplasty-Cleveland Plastic Surgery Case of the Week
Labiaplasty and vaginoplasty are becoming more and more common.
Before you begin navigating through this site or surfing the web, its important to know what procedure you are looking for. Depending on your need, there are three common procedures performed to the vulva.
Labiaplasty: For women that experience discomfort when wearing tight pants or exercising or feel embarassement about the size of their labia, labiaplasty surgery (also known as labia minora reduction or labioplasty) is the right procedure.
Vaginoplasty: After childbirth, or as women age, their vagina can become, in popular terms, “loose.” Vaginoplasty, also known as vaginaplasty or “vaginal rejuvination”, is popular for tightening the vagina or improving sexual experience.
Hoodectomy: known as “clitoral unhooding” is the right procedure for women that have difficulty acheiving orgasm due to extra skin surrounding their clitoris.
