There are all sorts of reasons to get labiaplasty, including improved self-esteem, reduced discomfort and a better sex life. But if you’re thinking about springing for this procedure for any of the following reasons, you might want to reevaluate your motives.
1. To Look Great in Trendy Yoga Pants
Yoga pants are everywhere, and every woman, no matter who she is, has probably sported this fashion trend at one point or another. While there is a fine line between getting plastic surgery to improve your overall comfort while exercising and performing normal daily activities, it’s an entirely different story to get a labiaplasty so that you look great in the latest Lululemon print.
2. To Feel Better about Getting a Brazilian Wax
Newsflash, ladies. If you’re getting your downstairs waxed or even lasered for a bare-down-there look, know that whoever is administering your hair removal method of choice has seen it all. There’s no need to be so uncomfortable that you feel compelled to surgically change the way your vagina looks just to go in for a little routine maintenance.
3. Because Someone Else Said So
If you want to look great naked and feel like you have an absolutely rockin’ bod, then by all means, get labiaplasty surgery if that’s what it takes. But do it for you—not for your husband, boyfriend, crush, fling, one-night stand, partner, etc.
Plastic surgery can absolutely give you a boost of self-confidence and help promote a positive body image, but getting it for the wrong reasons can seriously backfire.
