Vaginal Rejuvenation has made headlines recently, partly in thanks for celebrities such as Real Housewife Brandi Glanville and actress Julie Delpy, who have been very open about their own vaginal plastic surgery experiences. Even so, some women remain unclear what the term Vaginal Rejuvenation encompasses, and exactly what benefits they can receive from the surgery.
Vaginal Rejuvenation is comprised of two specific procedures: Vaginoplasty and Labiaplasty. The most popular is the Labiaplasty, an external cosmetic procedure that has been referred to by Cosmopolitan magazine as a “facelift for the vagina”. A Labiaplasty reshapes a large, unsightly labia; a problem which can cause emotional insecurities as well as physical discomfort.
Vaginoplasty is a reconstructive surgery to tighten the vaginal walls, which can become lax due to childbirth, age, or illness. As the tissues inside of the vagina become slack, sexual intercourse can become uncomfortable, even painful. Normal activities such as wearing a tampon, become almost impossible, and embarrassing vaginal flatulence becomes commonplace. During a Vaginoplasty, a cosmetic surgeon will excise excess skin and tissue, repairing and rebuilding the vaginal walls. The end result is a taut, snug vagina; allowing a woman to resume her normal activities and even enjoy sex more than she has in years.
“It was like having sex for the first time,” a recent patient named Lisa tells Cosmopolitan magazine, six weeks after having her Vaginoplasty. While the surgical procedure dose not actually bring back a woman’s lost virtue, the procedure can certainly make both her and her partner feel like she is a virgin once again. The tightening of the entry muscles and tissues of the vagina will increase a woman’s sensation during sex, making the experience more enjoyable for, as well as for her partner.
Some numbness can be expected after a Vaginoplasty, but this will usually resolve itself over the first few weeks post-surgery. While a few patients have reported more serious side effect, such as muscle damage, these are very rare and are easiest to avoid by using a board certified cosmetic surgeon, experienced in Vaginal Rejuvenation.
