What is Vaginal Rejuvenation?

Vaginal rejuvenation involves tightening the vaginal structure but can also include rejuvenation to the vulva and labia. Surgical techniques are used to achieve a more balanced labia and toned vaginal structure. Women report feeling more confident and comfortable after their vaginal rejuvenation procedure.

Who can Benefit from Vaginal Rejuvenation?

Vaginal rejuvenation can benefit women with the following concerns:

  •         Long labia majora (outer lips) or labia minora (inner lips) that cause physical or emotional discomfort
  •         Tugging of the labia minora during sexual activity or when wearing tight clothing
  •         Changes to the vaginal structure with age or after childbirth

To be a successful candidate for vaginal rejuvenation, you should be prepared for surgery and some downtime.

How is Vaginal Rejuvenation Performed?

Vaginal rejuvenation is performed in-office with the use of local or general anesthesia for your comfort. During vaginal rejuvenation, the following techniques may be used:

Vaginoplasty

The goal of a vaginoplasty is to tighten the vaginal structure by removing excess tissue. This procedure is typically performed to address changes after pregnancy or with age.

Labiaplasty

A labiaplasty is a technique used to address the length of the labia minora. During a labiaplasty procedure, excess tissue is surgically removed from the labia to improve their size, shape, and symmetry.

Labia Majora Rejuvenation

For some, having overly long or large labia majora can be uncomfortable. During a labia majora reduction, excess tissue is surgically removed. Others may want to enhance the symmetry or contour of the labia majora and can do so with a fat transfer to the area.

Clitoral Hood Reduction

During a clitoral hood reduction, excess skin is removed from above the clitoris. This procedure can be performed for aesthetic reasons, or to enhance sensation.

Pubic Reduction

During a pubic reduction, the fatty tissue on the pubic area is reduced using surgical techniques. At the same time, a lift can be performed to address any sagging in the pubic area. 

Recovery After Vaginal Rejuvenation  

After vaginal rejuvenation, patients should get plenty of rest for several days. You should plan for about a week off work depending on how strenuous your job is. Loose clothing should be worn and pressure to the area should be avoided for several weeks. This includes sexual activity and strenuous exercise. Some swelling and general discomfort can be expected for the first few days and can be managed with pain medication and an ice pack.

Vaginal Rejuvenation Results

Once swelling and discomfort have subsided, you can enjoy the results of your vaginal rejuvenation procedure. Your results will depend on the techniques performed, but patients typically report feeling more confident and comfortable after their vaginal rejuvenation procedure. The results of your treatment are long-lasting and age naturally with the rest of your body.
