The term Vaginal Rejuvenation encompasses several procedures that can improve both the external appearance and the internal functioning of the vagina. Each specific procedure addresses certain concerns, and very often, they are combined together in one surgery. There are three main reasons for seeking Vaginal Rejuvenation: female incontinence, uneven labia, and lack of vaginal elasticity.
Uneven or Distended Labia
Enlarged labia can cause both aesthetic and physical concerns. Abnormally large labia majora or labia minora can cause discomfort under clothing and even pain during sexual intercourse. Patients dealing with uneven labia can often experience issues with their self-esteem, at times even preventing intimacy. To correct these issues, a Labiaplasty is performed, the extra tissue is removed, and the area is reshaped to form an aesthetically pleasing labia. This is an out-patient procedure, performed under local anesthesia.
Lack of Vaginal Tone
Over time, a woman’s vaginal canal can become enlarged, often due to hormonal changes or multiple childbirths. Various subsequent problems may be experienced, such as tampons that will not stay in place and sexual relations that become less satisfying. A Vaginoplasty will narrow the vaginal canal and its opening, as well as tighten the interior muscles. Sensation will return to the area, the aesthetic look will be restored, and the muscle tone improved. Vaginoplasty has a recovery time of 6-8 weeks, and is performed as an outpatient procedure under local or local with sedation.
Often after childbirth the mons pubis either becomes too prominent or conversely can look deflated. Both of these conditions can be addressed with vaginal rejuvenation. Through a variety of techniques including liposuction, fat grafting, and/ or filler placement this area can be improved significantly.
