Vaginal rejuvenation usually combines vaginoplasty (“tightening” of the vagina) and/or labiaplasty or vulvaplasty (reshaping of the vulva or labia, the outer and inner lips of the vagina). It has become an increasingly popular option for women. For individuals who desire recontouring after childbirth, significant weight loss, aging or injury to genital structures, vaginal rejuvenation offers increased self-confidence and comfort.
WHEN TO CONSIDER A VAGINAL RECONSTRUCTION?
- When the contours of your vaginal structures have altered and stretched over time.
- If you experience soreness or pain with sexual activity, bicycle riding or horseback riding.
- If the effects of multiple vaginal deliveries have led to reduced sensation during intercourse.
The most common vaginal procedure today is laser vaginal rejuvenation; Dr. Ricardo Vega will discuss the most appropriate technique for you. A pudendal block is given to provide 18 to 24 hours of postoperative pain control. The laser is used very much like a scalpel, but it allows a precise aesthetic result, with less bleeding. Redundant (extra) tissue will be removed and the incisions will be sutured inside the vagina.
For a labiaplasty, the desired labial/vulval contours are outlined with a surgical marker and sutures are then placed. A laser is used to remove tissue beyond the desired contour, then skin staples are placed to align the edges of the labia, absorbable sutures are used and the staples are removed.
RECOVERY AND RESULTS
Patients typically experience swelling and discomfort which is more pronounced with extensive repair. Patients can return to work within two weeks and must limit physical activity for six to twelve weeks. Sexual activity may be resumed after approximately six weeks.
Patients enjoy increased self-confidence, comfort and greater sexual satisfaction.
