Restore Confidence and Comfort at Chicago’s Iteld Plastic Surgery
When we say “women’s health” at Chicago’s Iteld Plastic Surgery, we know you know what we’re talking about. Not that there’s anything wrong with coming right out and saying it: We’re talking about your vagina, your labia—all the intimate parts that you make up nicknames for. There’s also nothing wrong with wanting those parts to function and feel as best as they can.
Unfortunately, women’s health—and all that encompasses—can be negatively impacted by a variety of factors. Pregnancy and childbirth cause hormone shifts and physical trauma to delicate areas, but aging alone is enough to change the tissues there, leading to increased laxity and decreased comfort. And of course, there’s menopause. Dr. Lawrence Iteld has an option for women who want to take back control of their pleasure and comfort.
How Do Women’s Health Treatments Work?
At Iteld Plastic Surgery, the procedure of choice when it comes to women’s health is labiaplasty. This is a surgical procedure that involves trimming and shaping labia that are overly large or asymmetrical due to childbirth or heredity. While some labia are discreet and tucked away, others are enlarged to the point that they can interfere with daily living. Labia that can be seen when swimsuits are worn or that hurt due to friction during exercise (like jogging) or intercourse can be reduced.
What Can I Expect After a Women’s Health Procedure?
All surgery requires some healing, so plan to avoid any activity that would involve the vaginal area as a featured player in the days following a women’s health procedure. There will likely be some swelling and bruising, but women generally find that they are feeling well enough to celebrate their new look and feel within a couple of weeks.

Is a Narcotics-Free Women’s Health Procedure Possible?
Managing pain during your recovery period should be the last thing on your mind after a women’s health procedure. Dr. Iteld’s thoughtful approach to surgery takes the entire process—including healing and downtime—into account, which means he aims from the start to keep you off opioids. The secret is in planning from the consultation on to prevent pain, not to treat is as an unavoidable side effect.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Treatment for Women’s Health in Chicago?
Women of all ages and backgrounds regularly choose women’s health procedures to regain a sense of confidence and pleasure after childbirth, as they get older, or once they begin experiencing the symptoms of menopause. Women also consider labiaplasty if they have never been satisfied with the look or feel of their labia.
Dr. Iteld believes that the best candidates are those who are making the choice for themselves so they can live the life they want.
What Complements a Women’s Health Procedure?
The hormone ups and downs of pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause can cause changes beyond vaginal ones. Women who have experienced a shift may also find that they are considering breast augmentation or a breast lift to restore a more youthful silhouette, liposuction to address stubborn pockets of fat, and other treatments. Many of these can be combined into a Mommy Makeover. Talk to Dr. Iteld to create a plan that meets your unique needs.
