Sagging Vulva

Sagging Vulva

The vulva refers to the external part of the female genitalia. Two sets of vaginal lips, or flaps, make up this part of the body which protects the opening of the vagina. These are also known as the labia; labia majora are the outer flaps, and labia minora are the inner flaps. As the labia are made up of skin-like cells and tissues, it is common for their size and shape to change over time. This can lead to either one or both sets of the labia seeming to become elongated, a concern described as ‘sagging vulva’.

 This concern can easily be confused with enlarged labia as both conditions can cause the vulva area to hang low. The difference is that enlarged labia occurs from an increased tissue growth, whereas sagging vulva is the result of lax skin. Ageing affects the skin on the face and body by causing it to become thin and loose as collagen and elastin decline. This can also happen to the vulva, leading to a similar effect. Sexual activities and childbirth can also contribute to the stretching of the ‘skin’, reducing it’s ability to effectively bounce back.

A sagging vulva can lead to a number of concerns, including: visibility through fitted clothing such as underwear or swimsuits, general discomfort, atrophic vaginitis (irritation of the vulva and vaginal tissues) and stress incontinence (as the vaginal structure and muscles are weaker). At Chester Cosmetic Surgery Miss Breahna can perform a labiaplasty procedure (labia majora reduction) for suitable candidates who are concerned with a sagging vulva. This simple procedure can reduce stretched / sagging skin around the opening of the vagina. Not only does this help to improve the aesthetics of the female genitals, it can improve a patient’s level of comfort and other associated concerns.
