Plastic surgery has long become a universal weapon in the fight against any imperfections in appearance and helps modern girls to successfully translate their beauty ideals into reality. In this regard, intimate plastic is considered one of the most effective ways of correcting appearance, because it allows you to solve problems with the sexual sphere, get rid of complexes and give a woman confidence in her attractiveness. But due to the fact that intimate plastic is a rather delicate issue, which is rarely talked about just like that, it has managed to acquire a huge number of myths, which often instill in us fear and unfounded fears. The most popular of them were discussed in detail with plastic surgeon-oncologist-mammologist Rano Azimova.
Myth 1. After plastic surgery of the labia minora, the erogenous sensitivity of the intimate zone decreases
This operation does not affect the sensitivity. As a rule, patients and their partners are very pleased with the results of the surgery, and subsequently say that this gave them confidence and brought new sensations to their intimate life.
Myth 2. Any partner can easily determine that there was a plastic surgery of the labia, as scars remain
After plastic surgery performed by an experienced surgeon, there are no visible scars or scars. After 4-6 months, even a gynecologist will not be able to notice traces of surgery.
Myth 3. Intimate plastic is only about your "want", not about physiological necessity
Over time, intimate plastic is becoming more and more popular, and this can be considered a real trend. The most demanded operation is the reduction of the labia minora. Sometimes patients say that after several pregnancies and childbirth, the appearance of the intimate area does not change for the better. In this case, lipofilling is performed, which adds the lost volume to the tissues and improves the quality of the skin. Also, after childbirth, one of the most common complaints is vaginal enlargement - in this case, narrowing is performed by suturing the muscles of the perineum and lipofilling.
Myth 4. Intimate plastic surgery can have serious consequences
Intimate plastic surgery is quite simple, so that they are distinguished by a low complication rate. But, as in the case of any surgical intervention, care in the postoperative period and adherence to the doctor's recommendations are very important. The absence of complaints is the result of the well-coordinated work of the specialist and the patient, based on mutual understanding and responsibility.
Myth 5. Labioplasty (plastic surgery of the labia minora) cannot be done before childbirth, as the effect will disappear
Here the situation is just the opposite, because during pregnancy, hormones are raging in a woman, as a result of which the labia may slightly increase. Labiaplasty performed before childbirth can relieve discomfort and discomfort. After childbirth, the effect will not disappear (see also: "Before or after childbirth: when is it better to have mammoplasty (and why)").
Myth 6. It takes a long time to recover after labiaplasty
If performed correctly, this operation does not require much time and, as a rule, takes place without complications, since the perineal zone has very good blood supply. Incision areas heal quickly and suture removal is not required, as absorbable suture material is used. The only recommendation is to abstain from intercourse in the first 3-4 weeks after surgery.
Myth 7. The operation can have a bad effect on the microflora of the intimate zone (protective functions will be lost)
In this matter, everything depends on the specialist, who must carry out the operation very carefully so as not to damage the functionally important areas that perform protective functions.
Myth 8. You can get pregnant after surgery only a year later
After the operation, there is a recovery period of 3-4 weeks. After the swelling has subsided and all the stitches have healed, you can do everything. Labioplasty does not affect birth tears.
