What is Vaginal Rejuvenation Surgery?
Vaginal rejuvenation isn’t just one procedure. It is a term that can mean anything that makes a change to the vagina either internally or externally. It may be an injection, a cream, laser treatments, or a surgery that alters this area. One of the most common procedures is labiaplasty, which is a surgery that improves both the appearance and the function of this organ.
Some procedures are safer than others, but it’s always important to choose an experienced provider. They will be honest about the results and which treatment is the best option for your situation and goals.
The main purpose of many vaginal rejuvenation procedures is to tighten the vaginal walls, which can become loosened following childbirth. They can also stretch from aging and lead to a loss of sensation with sexual intercourse.
Why Women Choose Vaginal Rejuvenation
Labiaplasty is a procedure that impacts the labia majora, labia minora, mons pubis, clitoris, vagina, introitus, and the G spot. A common reason for this procedure is to address enlarged labia minora or those that are longer than average as part of body contouring.
While many women choose to have this procedure because they are embarrassed by the way they look, far more opt for the surgery because of discomfort in clothing or while engaged in certain activities. Some women may find sexual intercourse unpleasant or painful. Riding a bike and other exercises may be difficult due to the enlarged labia minora.
Of course, this is only one reason for vaginal rejuvenation. It may be recommended to alter the size of the labia majora or the clitoral hood. The surgery can augment the G spot, making it easier to access through intercourse.
There is no rule as to who can have vaginal rejuvenation. Rather, it is a personal choice for when the person is unhappy with the way this area looks or if it causes issues with their daily life. The patient should be in good health to undergo the surgery, and a doctor can walk through the procedure to determine the best approach to meet the desired goals.
Vaginal rejuvenation can be performed under general anesthesia, with local anesthesia, or with sedation. Most patients prefer to be asleep when having the procedure done, which takes about an hour.
Incisions are small and placed strategically to not be noticeable after healing. Stitches don’t need to be removed, which helps with the recovery process. Mild swelling and light bruising is to be expected. However, it won’t last long, and pain medication will help with any discomfort felt after the surgery.
The initial recovery process requires the patient to rest and stay off their feet for up to 48 hours after the surgery. While the patient can return to work within a few days, they won’t be allowed to participate in any strenuous exercise or intercourse for six weeks.
