Women and Intimacy: Achieving Sexual Satisfaction
Often problems with a woman’s labia or vagina can adversely impact her ability to achieve satisfactory sexual intimacy. Discomfort from enlarged labia, excess tissue surrounding the clitoris, or vaginal laxity can often cause difficulties for women, affecting their ability to become intimate, their sexual confidence and their self of well-being. Dr. Boyle performs these procedures not to treat sexual dysfunction, but because these reconstructions will often improve women’s satisfaction with intimacy and intercourse as they achieve the genital appearance that they desire:
- Labiaplasty/labia minor reduction
- Clitoral hood reduction/clitoropexy
- Labia majora remodeling
- Vaginal rejuvenation
