What is Vaginal Rejuvenation, and how do I know if I need it?

Aging occurs in every area of a woman’s body. The aging process and stress of childbirth can cause women to be uncomfortable with their vaginal area’s appearance. As time passes, the vaginal canal loses tone and elasticity. This can cause a decline in sexual satisfaction.

The term vaginal rejuvenation actually refers to several different surgical procedures. These surgeries can be performed alone or in combination with other procedures. Here are the descriptions of several of the most common vaginal rejuvenation procedures.

Vaginoplasty is the least invasive vaginal rejuvenation procedure. This procedure is performed in the doctor’s office, and takes only a few minutes to complete. During a vaginoplasty, the physician will reduce the size of the vaginal opening and take off excess tissue.

Additionally, there are many different sizes of labia in women. Women with larger labia can experience pain during normal activities, especially when their clothes are form-fitting. They can also suffer from pain during sexual intercourse. Some women may not have physical pain due to their large labia, but they suffer emotionally because they feel unattractive and lose their self-confidence. Fortunately, labiaplasty is available to reduce the size of the labia minora and labia majora. This procedure removes excess skin and reshapes the labia. Women report a high level of satisfaction after a labiaplasty. They also credit the procedure with eliminating their pain during intercourse and increasing their confidence and self esteem.

Clitoral hood reduction is often included with a labiaplasty procedure. Clitoral hood reduction is offered to women who are uncomfortable with the size and shape of their clitoral hood. If the clitoral hood is too large, it can cause discomfort and irritation. Thos procedure can also modify the clitoris glans or shaft.

Perineoplasty is a surgical procedure that improves the lower section of the vagina after a labiaplasty. This procedure tightens the vaginal opening to give a more youthful, attractive appearance.

Pubic liposuction is available for women who are uncomfortable with excess fat in their pubic area. Some women are born with additional fat in this area, while others notice it as a result of puberty or moderate weight gain.
