Vaginal rejuvenation is quickly becoming one of the most inquired about cosmetic procedures offered. Loose vagina and redundant labia have been common problems, especially in mothers, but is often not addressed. This may be multifactorial such as embarrassment, lack of good information, “acceptance” as part of the aging process, and/or lack of good guidance by cosmetic surgeons. The recent media attention has prompted women to be more open and comfortable about these issues.
Complete vaginal rejuvenation includes:
- Labiaplasty – surgical reduction of the labia majora
- Perineoplasty – tightening of the vaginal opening with reduction of the perineal tissue (area directly behind the vagina in front of the anus) and rebuilding of the perineal body
- G-spot injection – this is relatively new to the concept of vaginal rejuvenation but is really part of women seeking increased sexual stimulation and gratification.
Dr. Wright is able to provide women and mothers with options to restore and improve their aesthetic and sexual functions, often with minimally invasive procedures.
There are many reasons that our patients request information about this procedure. Many women are born with large or irregular labia. An enlarged or irregular labia minora can be derived from exposure to hormones during development or acquired from chronic mechanical irritation or inflammation.
Normally, the labia minora barely protrude past the labia majora, if at all. In some cases of enlargement they can protrude up to 2 ½ inches. Not only is this considered aesthetically unacceptable to some women, it causes local irritation and problems with hygiene, it causes interference with sexual intercourse, and it can cause discomfort during physical activity such as cycling or running. It can also cause discomfort with tight clothing and finally it can cause social embarrassment and psychological distress in extreme cases. The procedure does not address the vagina itself and is not a tightening procedure.
The reduction procedure is a minor operation and causes little discomfort. It can be performed under general anesthesia or sedation as an outpatient surgery in our state of the art surgery center. The excess skin is removed and the remaining skin is sutured to heal with aesthetic and youthful results. The sutures are dissolvable and thus there is no need for suture removal. After a couple of weeks the incisions are practically imperceptible and sexual intercourse can be resumed in about 5-6 weeks. The procedure has a very high level of patient satisfaction. The most common risks are bleeding, infection or scarring. Fortunately, these risks do not frequently occur.
With the vaginal tightening procedure Dr. Wright is able to tighten the internal vagina, which also assists with the improvement of the vagina muscle tone, to enhance the sexual function for both the woman and her partner. With the trauma of vaginal delivery, the vaginal opening (vaginal introitus) is commonly torn or injured causing a loose vagina, which can be felt or even observed. Part of the vaginal rejuvenation process includes perineoplasty (perineum – the area directly behind the vagina in front of the anus). Perineoplasty is the tightening of the vaginal opening with reduction of perineal tissue and rebuilding of the perineal body. This process will make the vagina look and feel like before childbirth.
