When you’re sexually aroused, your clitoris swells and pulls back on its own hood. This protects the head of what some people call “the sex bud” from irritation by outside factors like bacteria or menstruation.
The female equivalent would be foreskin – it covers up part of our anatomy so we can enjoy pleasure without being hurt.
The goal of this surgery is to remove excess skin that covers the Female Genital Organ. The process also creates a smaller hood, which some people find embarrassing or uncomfortable when it’s in contact with their partner during penetrative sex due its enlarged appearance from increased tissue growth caused by hormonal changes at puberty years before adulthood arrives.
You can expect some pain, swelling and discomfort. Your healthcare provider may recommend taking a week off from work following labiaplasty to allow for healing.
