The term vaginal rejuvenation covers several different procedures. It is sometimes called female genital plastic surgery, female genital rejuvenation surgery, female genital cosmetic surgery, vulvovaginal plastic surgery and designer vagina surgery, among other terms. Among the procedures that comprise female genital plastic surgery are labiaplasty, clitoral hood reduction, labia majoraplasty, monsplasty and vaginoplasty. Before discussing each one, it is important to look at the anatomy.
By now, many people have heard about the popular procedure for women known as Vaginal Rejuvenation or Vaginoplasty. For those who haven’t heard, it is a 1-2 hour procedure involving the tightening of the inner and outer muscles and structures of the vagina enhancing vaginal muscle tone, strength, and control. Vaginal Rejuvenation treats vaginal relaxation, a common condition associated with childbirth and aging. With the basics out of the way, here are some things you might not know about the procedure:
It’s not just about better sex. There are numerous reasons women choose to undergo Vaginal Rejuvenation, many of which have nothing to do with sex. Some of those reasons include tampons falling out, scar tissue surrounding the vagina, experiencing a “popping” sound during a yoga class or when walking, and problems passing bowel movements.
But the sex will be better. Because surgical Vaginal Rejuvenation results in vaginal tightening, friction during intercourse is increased which means greater stimulation and pleasure during sex. In fact, studies report that 83% to 90% of vaginal rejuvenation patients experience successful results with an improved sex life following surgery. Additionally, a patient’s sex life is also enhanced by her increased self confidence and the resulting increased libido. Meaning: she’s got her groove back!
You should have it performed by a specialist. Vaginal Rejuvenation surgery is ideally performed by a medical professional who specializes in the field of aesthetic female procedures. Patients should seek out a specialist who has performed hundreds of surgical Vaginal Rejuvenation or Vaginoplasty procedures and is intimately familiar with the varied anatomy, patient preferences, and latest surgical management to provide optimal results both aesthetically and functionally.
It’s a long-lasting investment. Unless another vaginal childbirth occurs, patients are typically good to go for the rest of their lives. Though it’s normal that all parts of the body relax slightly as we age, the vaginal area should never return to the degree of relaxation experienced prior to surgery.
