What is vaginal rejuvenation?
Vaginal rejuvenation usually combines treatments and procedures that improve the appearance and function of the vagina and labia. Over time, the muscles in the vagina can become weak, thin, or loose from natural childbirth or hormonal changes during menopause. Several women find that even practicing Kegel exercises doesn’t improve the problem. Vaginal rejuvenation procedures range from surgical vaginoplasty to minimally invasive laser treatments. Labiaplasty improves the external appearance of the vagina, including the labia and clitoris. This procedure can greatly improve the quality of a woman’s sex life, improve comfort, and boost her confidence in her appearance.
What is a vaginoplasty like?
A vaginoplasty is a relatively simple surgical procedure. During the procedure, the vaginal muscles are tightened and the surrounding tissue may be reduced as well, which results in increased sexual pleasure for a woman. Childbirth and other genetic factors cause the vaginal muscles to tear, stretch, or weaken, which causes the vagina to swell and sometimes leads to a loss of sensation. A vaginoplasty can also address urinary incontinence and hernia. Most patients can return home on the day of the surgery and results are noticeable following recovery.
What is recovery like after vaginal rejuvenation?
Dr. Gabal will discuss how long it will be until the patient can resume their everyday routine. Following the procedure, she will go over post-surgical care instructions with the patient about:
– Drains, if needed
– Signs of complications
Most patients see improvement in their libidos and responsiveness after treatment. Recovery does take a little time and patients should allow sufficient time to pass to allow their vaginas to completely heal before engaging in sexual intercourse. If you’re unhappy with your vagina’s appearance or have lost sensation after undergoing childbirth or menopause, call or book online to schedule a consultation with Dr. Gabai at Prestige Medical Spa.
