Now more than ever, women are caring about the health and appearance of their entire body…even the most intimate areas. Over the past few years there has been a tremendous increase in procedures designed to improve the look, feel, and function of the vagina and surrounding structures. In fact, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, vaginal rejuvenation is one of the most rapidly increasing trends in plastic surgery today.
Through aging, child-birth, or weight change, the vaginal structures can relax and stretch. In some cases, the labia (vaginal lips) may be naturally too large or unsightly. Regardless of the cause, women with these issues often experience discomfort, decreased sexual pleasure, and lowered self-confidence. Fortunately, through vaginal rejuvenation surgery, appearance, function, and confidence can be restored!
Depending on the problem, there are a variety of procedures that may encompass vaginal rejuvenation. The two most common are “Labiaplasty” and “Vaginoplasty.”
Labiaplasty is done to reduce the size and shape of the inner (labia minora) and/or outer (labia majora) lips of the vagina. Vaginoplasty is performed to tighten the vaginal wall. This is done by removing excess vaginal lining and tightening the surrounding soft tissues and muscles. Both procedures are safe, out-patient procedures, performed under anesthesia. The recovery is quick and relatively easy. Whether alone or combined, these surgical techniques can provide a more attractive, youthful, and comfortable vagina.
