What is Vaginal Rejuvenation Surgery?
This is a combined cosmetic vaginal surgery of both labiaplasty and vaginoplasty. A vaginal rejuvenation is performed surgically to restore or improve the vagina’s cosmetic appearance or function. These two distinct surgeries can be performed at the same time at our office yielding cosmetically enhanced labia and a tightened vagina during one surgical visit.
Who is a candidate for the Vaginal Rejuvenation Surgery?
Most patients have the labiaplasty to reduce the length of the labia. If you have long or hanging vaginal lips or genetalia, you can benefit from a labia reduction. Some women have always been this way, whereas others develop the problem after childbirth or as they get older. Those with full fatty mons (vaginal lips) can safely undergo liposuction of that area. Most women who desire a vaginoplasty complain of feeling “loose”. They note decrease friction during intercourse resulting in lower levels of sexual satisfaction and more difficulty in climaxing. Vaginoplasty will increase friction during intercourse. After surgery, the vaginal tightness is similar to the pre-baby days. You will easily feel the difference and so will your partner.
Will everything look and feel normal after my procedure?
Yes. The scars are very fine and hidden within natural skin creases. It is very difficult to spot them even up close. Sensation is improved since there are no flaps of extra skin in the way.
What is the Vaginal Rejuvenation Surgery recovery like?
After Vaginal Rejuvenation Surgery surgery there will be some discomfort and swelling. You can expect 80% of the swelling to subside by the end of the first week. The remaining swelling should be gone by 6 weeks. The post operative instructions after surgery include the following:
- One week off of work
- Epson salt soaks daily for one week
- No sexual intercourse for 4 weeks
- Return to normal activities at 4 weeks
You will have swelling in the first 3-4 days, and it will gradually disappear over the next couple of weeks. Most patients can resume sexual relations in 2-3 weeks.
