Does Labiaplasty Cause a Loss of Sensation 0

Does Labiaplasty Affect Sensation?

During labiaplasty, excessive, loose, and sagging labial tissue is removed. This has a number of benefits including:

  • Improved aesthetics
  • Enhanced clothing options
  • Increased comfort
  • Improved confidence

Labiaplasty may also help to improve sexual pleasure.

Excessively large labial folds can prevent clitoral stimulation and cause friction irritation that may make intercourse extremely painful. A reduction in labial tissue eliminates friction and helps to ensure all the right parts are stimulated during intimate moments.

Can Labiaplasty Cause a Loss of Sensation?

A reduction of labial tissue should not impact sexual sensation. In a labiaplasty safety study conducted by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, it was found that, “Most labiaplasty techniques can be performed safely and are unlikely to cause loss of sensation as the nerve density distribution in labia minora is heterogeneous.” In other words, the redundancy built into the nerve network in the labia safeguards against a loss of sensation.

To help ensure your labiaplasty does not result in a loss of sensation, it is best to work with an experienced, careful, and attentive plastic surgeon.
