Procedures / Surgical / Feminine Rejuvenation
Have a slightly painful conversation instead of painful experiences
While many women are too shy to discuss loose vaginal tissues, unsatisfactory or painful intercourse, or an enlarged labia, these are not uncommon conversations between a woman and her trusted plastic surgeon. These conversations are especially important when they reduce sexual desire and excitement, ruin her love life, or cause discomfort.
The most common procedures included in a feminine rejuvenation include Vaginoplasty (vaginal rejuvenation and tightening) and Labiaplasty (labia reduction and beautification). While vaginoplasties are most often on women after childbirth, labiaplasties are requested by women of all ages, from the young woman with large labia who is concerned about her appearance in a bathing suit, to the patient who has lost a lot of weight and now finds herself with a lot of extra tissue that just won’t go away.
Labiaplasty and Vaginoplasty can be performed at the same time or in combination with other common Plastic and Cosmetic procedures such as Rhinoplasty, Breast Enhancement or Reduction, Abdominoplasty, or Liposuction.
If you're considering a feminine rejuvenation surgery, this outline will give you a basic understanding of the procedure when it can help, how it's performed, and what results you can expect. It can't answer all of your questions, since a lot depends on the individual patient and the surgeon. Dr. Walker is more than happy to clarify any misunderstandings, please contact her office with any questions or concerns you may have.
What happens during feminine rejuvenation?
Vaginoplasty (vaginal rejuvenation and tightening)
The steps involved in a typical vaginoplasty procedure will vary greatly from one patient to the next. If increased friction during intercourse is the main goal, excess lining may be removed in the vaginal canal. If there is a larger sense of "looseness," as described by the patient, accompanied by bowel or incontinence problems, more extensive surgery to the pelvis may be required.
Labiaplasty (labia reduction and beautification)
Labiaplasty procedures reduce overly large or protruding vaginal lips, which can limit physical activity and cause difficulties during sexual intercourse. Exact procedures vary from patient to patient however typically excess labial skin is measured and marked for symmetry and trimmed with a scalpel or surgical scissors.
Good candidates for feminine rejuvenation
Relatively healthy women who experience discomfort during intercourse or suffer embarrassment from their appearance are the best candidates for a feminine rejuvenation.
