One of the major reasons why women choose to undergo vaginal rejuvenation is because they want to restore the intimacy that they used to have with their partner. Vaginal rejuvenation is a reconstructive form of plastic surgery, and it is viewed as a cosmetic procedure. In most cases, the procedure combines vulvoplasty and vaginoplasty. Simply put, the procedure consists of tightening and reshaping the vagina.
The reshaping aspect of the procedure handles the inner and outer lips of the vagina. Over time, this procedure has become quite popular. Many women desire this procedure to counteract the effects of injury, aging, significant weight loss or childbirth. For some women, vaginal rejuvenation can provide increased self-confidence and comfort.
Who Is A Good Candidate For The Procedure?
Some women are better candidates for the procedure than others are. If your vaginal structures have started to sag because of weight loss, aging or pregnancies or if you have discomfort from scarring caused by previous surgeries carried out on your genitals, you could be a candidate. You might also consider the procedure if you suffer from a condition called stress urinary incontinence or want a vaginal lift. Women who just want a sleeker, refined contour of their vulva and labia are also candidates. An ideal candidate is in good health, has a positive attitude and realistic expectations.
How the Procedure Works
The most common method used for vaginal rejuvenation used today is called laser vaginal rejuvenation. During the procedure, a laser is used like a scalpel but provides a far better aesthetic result. The laser is also used because it causes less bleeding. At its core, the procedure aims to sculpt the target areas in and outside of the vagina. Some common enhancements include clitoral hood remodeling, mons pubis reduction and augmentation of the labia majora.
The results obtained from vaginal rejuvenation are permanent. However, the results are not protected against the effects of future pregnancies or significant weight gain.
What Are The Risks Involved?
As with all medical procedures, there are some risks involved. The good news is that serious complications resulting from vaginal rejuvenation are very rare. Some general risks associated with this procedure are scarring, changes in sensation, bleeding, infection, hematoma, adverse reactions to the anesthesia, damage to underlying structures and unsatisfactory results. By following the advice from our surgeon, you can minimize your individual risk factors.
