3 Things Gynecological Surgery Can Do for You

Let’s face it — no one wants to think about having surgery. And, when it comes to something as sensitive as your pelvic area, the fear of going under the knife can be even more intense. Making things more complicated, some gynecological surgeries are elective, so should you even bother in the first place?

But when you consider all of the ways that gynecological surgery — both elective and medically-necessary — can benefit your life, you might be a little more open to the idea of talking to a surgeon.

So, what exactly can gynecological surgery do for you?

1. Put an end to incontinence issues

If you’ve started leaking when you do simple things — like sneeze, cough, laugh, or have sex — you don’t have to live with it. After all, stress urinary incontinence can be embarrassing and inconvenient!

Unfortunately, it can also be a sign of something more serious.

If you’re dealing with incontinence, a cystocele might be to blame. That’s actually the fancy medical term for a bladder prolapse — or, what happens when your pelvic muscles get weak and cause your bladder to sink down into your vagina. A cystocele won’t go away on its own. In fact, it can get worse over time and lead to full-blown incontinence.

Luckily, bladder prolapse surgery can put an end to the entire ordeal. During surgery, your doctor will insert a tiny sling beneath your urethra. That way, the sling can offer the support that your pelvic muscles are no longer strong enough to give — and your incontinence problems will disappear!

2. Help you feel more confident

Are you embarrassed by the way you look “down there”? Is there some kind of cosmetic issue that’s keeping you from feeling sexy and desirable? If so, labia reduction surgery is the answer!

Similar to cosmetic surgery on other parts of the body, during labia reduction surgery, your doctor can sculpt your labia so that they look exactly the way you want them to. You can even take in a picture of your favorite Playmate and request to look the exact same way! That way, when it’s time to get undressed, you won’t feel self-conscious.

3. Make you look younger

Do you long for the way you looked before you had children and got older? A labia reduction can help you re-claim your youth! After all, your labia go through a lot during the course of your life. Childbirth and the aging process can both make your labia longer or unequal, but you don’t have to live with it!
