Labiaplasty regrets

I had labiaplasty in my late 30’s and I am experiencing serious labiaplasty regrets. I had always been self conscious about the appearance of my labia. Now I have gone into menopause and I can tell you that it is causing real issues. I have constant irritation and urinary tract infections that I attribute to having the surgery. I have less sensitivity and lubrication diminished somewhat after the surgery and now in menopause I have zero ability to self lubricate or feeling. So if you are thinking of having the surgery do not. It will cause more problems when you are older than it is worth. I am 49 years old.

Thank you for sharing your story. Genital cosmetic surgery, includign labiaplasty surgery, has become a big and lucrative business for many plastic surgeons. They often recommend it far too easily, rather than conducting a proper assessment of whether it is medically necessary. And it often leads to labiaplasty regrets when the outcome is not what was expected, or where there are lasting negative after-effects such as a loss of sensitivity or pain.

That being said, ultimately whether or not one undergoes the surgery is a matter of personal choice. What is most important is to ensure that the decision is fully considered and informed, and is not based on issues that can be resolved through other ways (such as therapy to overcome body issues).
