Hi girls. It’s Ella. Today i will Interview a real plastic surgeon(ASAP Member) from Sydney Australia. He is a specialized in breast lift(if you want to learn more about this click on this link, not promotional but the article is very informative) and Labiaplasty.
So let’s start my 3 questions to Dr. Kohout about Vaginal Tightening or Labiaplasty
What is labiaplasty?
Cosmetic surgery of the genital area and more specifically of the labia is also called labiaplasty
Is labiaplasty for me?
Women are often concerned about the appearance of their genital area. This may be a concern purely for aesthetic reasons or more functional reasons. The inner labia may actually protrude so far out of the outer labia that it produces functional problems. It may cause chaffing on underwear; it may cause folds which become irritated and painful. Large labia may also be visible through underwear or swimming costumes, causing embarrassment.
How long does the operation take?
The operation will take anywhere between 60 and 90 minutes, depending on the type and extent of the operation. The incisions will be places according to the preoperative plan formulated by your surgeon. The stitches used in the operation are dissolving, so that looking after the operation will be easier. Once the operation itself is finished, antibiotic ointment is applied to the sutures.
I will keep this interview with Genital Surgery Dr. Kohout very short and link back to his Website so you can read the entire article.

While cosmetic solutions – from facelifts to liposuction – were used to tauten and tighten various other body parts, vaginas faithfully hung in there, often bravely weathering pubescence, childbirth and menopause. Labiaplasty, the surgery that cuts off “excess” parts of the labia minora, or inner vaginal lips, appeared in medical literature as early as 1971, but solely as a corrective measure for congential abnormalities. Otherwise, vaginas came in all shapes, colors and sizes, and there was no singular mainstream vulvar ide…. Read more
