How to Repair a Cut Inside the Labia Through Rough Sex?
Doctor Answers 3
Labiaplasty/Vaginoplasty to Correct Unstable Scarring
The labiaplasty procedure is most commonly performed to correct enlargement and discoloration of the labia minora. These changes can occur with aging, childbirth and intercourse. In addition, the inner labia (minora) can interfere with exercise and intercourse, and cause women to become self-conscious with intimacy. Less commonly, the labiaplasty or vaginoplasty procedures can be performed to correct scar tissue around the introitus (vaginal opening). Scar tissue can develop from sexual trauma and childbirth (e.g. episiotomy); when the healing is incomplete, or when the healing process is repeatedly disrupted (i.e. with intercourse) the scar can become unstable, resulting in an ongoing (chronic) wound to develop. In most cases, rearrangement of the existing labial and vaginal tissue is sufficient to allow for healthy tissue healing and normal scarring to occur. In extremely rare cases (most often in vaginal deformities from birth) skin grafting can be performed (e.g. McIndoe Procedure) to re-create the vaginal opening. Seek consultation from a board certified plastic surgeon to determine which treatment is right for you. This is a correctable problem that does not need to be an ongoing source of pain and discomfort.
