If Your Labia Are Too Large It Can Cause These Problems

If Your Labia Are Too Large It Can Cause These Problems

Your vaginal area, including the labia or lips of your vulva, is a sensitive part of your anatomy that needs knowledgeable and understanding care. If your labia are overly large, a condition also known as labial hypertrophy, you could feel negative about this part of your body.

Dr. Rachel Spieldoch and her team at McDowell Mountain Gynecology of Scottsdale, Arizona, are here to help. Dr. Spieldoch provides general gynecology care and vaginal rejuvenation, as well as minimally invasive surgeries and aesthetic medical spa services from her conveniently-located office.

For patients with overly large labia, Dr. Spieldoch watches out for these types of issues, and recommends effective, minimally invasive treatment options to provide real relief.

Functional issues

Your inner and outer labia protect the delicate tissues of your vulva and vagina, but if overly large, they can become more of a hindrance than a help. Your overly large labia might get in your way when attending to personal matters in the bathroom, causing issues with hygiene that can increase your risk of infections.

You might also find that overly large labia can cause you to feel uncomfortable physically in certain types of clothing, undergarments, activities, or even sitting positions. With so many nerves running through your genital area, extra tissue to pinch in that location can become a real problem for your daily life!

Loss of self-esteem

In addition to functional issues, if you feel that your labia are overly large, you might struggle with psychological and emotional problems relating to your self-esteem. This is particularly true if you’re sexually active or would like to become so, and feel negative emotions of embarrassment, shame, or dislike about your own genital appearance.

Your self-esteem and sexual health are part of your whole-body health and wellness, and Dr. Spieldoch takes all of your general gynecology needs seriously, counseling you about functional and emotional issues and recommending treatment options that can help.

Treatments for overly large labia

Dr. Spieldoch and the McDowell Mountain Gynecology team offer surgical procedures like labiaplasty that can reduce the size and profile of your overly large labia, saving you from hassle, embarrassment, and other potential problems down the road. We keep your procedure as minimally invasive as possible.

We provide a full range of customizable aesthetic and general gynecology treatment options, such as vaginal rejuvenation, treatments for sexual dysfunction or urinary incontinence, and vaginal dryness. These include regenerative medical treatments like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy and nonsurgical procedures to tighten skin and increase blood flow around your vaginal area.

Talk to Dr. Spieldoch regarding your concerns about your genital area at your next appointment. You don’t need to worry — Dr. Spieldoch is compassionate and nonjudgmental, and prioritizes your whole-body health and wellness at all times.

Schedule your initial consultation at McDowell Mountain Gynecology today by calling our office or requesting an appointment online.
