    Re: Labiaplasty anyone?

    Hello! I had labiaplasty a little over 2 years ago. This board helped me alot! I wanted to post to tell my story and help other and ask a question as well.

    I had mine done by a wonderful PS here in my area and it cost about $3000. It was a bit hard to go through but not bad at all. I had the kind were they dont just cut the ends off but cut like pie shaped slice out and sew it back together so you still have your original edges. Its a genious way to do it. I recoved well and am SOOO glad I had it done.

    My reason for doing it is a bit different than others. I DID NOT get it done for cosmetic reasons. My labia were larger but not abnormal. they were very simetrical and ok looking but just kinda thicker and bigger at the ends. they stuck out past my outer lips. either way.. they never bothered me before and I was never imbarassed of them but all of a sudden when I got in my early 20s they started getting irritated and pinched every once in a while. It always seemed to be mid cycle when I think I was ovulating. They would get a bit swollen and just sensitive I think from hormones of that time of th cycle. Also I had started wearing tighter jeans as trends call for so It was more noticeable.

    My question is for anyone else who has or is getting it done are you just getting it done for cosmetic reasons? does anyone with "larger" labia notice this sensitivity during about mid cycle? Im so happy I had mine done but sometimes I wonder if Im about the only person that got it for reasons besides cosmetic reasons. Now that I have had it done I still get that sensitiveness but its not bothersom because they are so much smaller and inside my out lips

    Hi............im planning to get this surgery for cosmetic and discomfort reasons. Mid cycle i feel more discomfort and swelling too! I have wondered that same question. I noticed mine when i was 10 and it really didnt start bothering me til i had children. Mine are assemetrical (after childbirth) so i want them shorter and even. I had my consult and it is a fairly easy procedure. My PS quoted me $2900. Im nervous but i am excited as well!

    Youll be fine! Im excited for you. Sounds wierd but getting mine done and not having to worry about it anymore is a good memory for me. I just hope alot of girls dont get it done just for cosmetic reasons. there are sooo many girls that compare themselves to photoshoped girls and want to look like something that isnt even real! girls should realize that EVERYONE is different down there. Just like having a different nose or whatever. There is nothing wrong with taking care of something either if it bothers you. I just hope no girl does it to impress guys or be like photoshoped images of porn stars and what not ya know....

    THANK YOU................about the porn vagina's................i cant stress enough the pressure we feel to "look" like that down there. I have said soooo many times on this board that ALL vagina's look different and it is such a shame that we compare ourselves to airbrushed non-real image's of women. It also is amazing that MOST men truly dont notice and dont even care! I have read their responses and most think women are insane for getting this done! Well i certainly would never do it for a man! Or for that matter any other plastic surgery procedure for a man! This is totally for myself and my husband does think im nuts! But like i said, i am tired of the rubbing..............bike riding..............and intercourse being a bit uncomfortable (lips go inside) type thing................i cant wait to just no longer fel that extra skin. I'll never forget what i heard on a show once........when a grown man wants to get circumsized.............no big deal...........BUT when a woman wants to cut a little xtra skin off............it's considered "weird". Ya know what i mean?????????

    Re: Labiaplasty: are you just getting it done for cosmetic reasons?

    haha I saw that show too. Its true!! Hun let me just tell you I went through absolute HELL trying to get a gyno to understand how I felt. I know now looking back that they just thought I was this prissy little girl who was pretending it bothered me to get the surgery. I went to 3 different gynos! One Lady even went as far to tell me that she would do it but it would kill and they would prolly grow back! (thats crap) AND said I think you should visit a phycologist 1st!! MAN I was ******. Finally a male gyno saw me had me try a couple things then gave me some PS referrals cause he had never done it himself. I was soo confused, if I woudnt have had this board and other internet stuff to let me know I wasnt the only one I would have went crazy. The guy gyno explained things to me ya know, explained that it happens but some women just live with it and that its becoming more common that women are doing somethign about it bla bla bla. he was great.

    And YEAH! guys dont notice! lol I was never overly imbarrased of the looks of mine. Did you know that in some foreign countries or tribes women pull on theres to stretch them out cause that is a sexy thing to the men!! lol thats funny! Its the eqiuvalent to them of a man having a big penis
