The popularity of vaginal rejuvenation procedures has been rising quickly in the U.S., in part because women are more comfortable with their bodies and sexuality. While it may be trending, especially in Southern California, there are some questions women may still have about the vaginal rejuvenation process.
Why would a woman undergo vaginal rejuvenation?
There are many factors that can influence a woman to undergo vaginal rejuvenation. Women who feel self-conscious about the aesthetic appearance of their vagina, or who are experiencing discomfort during sexual or physical activity due to sagging labial skin can benefit from the procedure.
Who can benefit from vaginal rejuvenation?
Women who desire a more youthful vaginal appearance and function can benefit from vaginal rejuvenation. However, a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon is needed to determine if you are a good candidate.
What can be expected during a vaginal rejuvenation procedure?
The term “vaginal rejuvenation” can encompass many feminine rejuvenation procedures. At Pacific Center Plastic Surgery, it includes labiaplasty and vaginoplasty. During a labiaplasty, the labia are trimmed to improve the aesthetic appearance or the vaginal lips, as well as reduce associated discomfort. During a vaginoplasty, a section of the vaginal lining is removed, and underlying muscles of the vaginal walls are tightened. Many patients have the procedure performed in-office under local anesthesia. This reduces cost, downtime, and risks associated with general anesthesia.
How much downtime is needed after vaginal rejuvenation?
Most patients are able to return to work within a week of their vaginal rejuvenation procedure. However, physical and sexual activity need to be avoided for about 4-6 weeks to ensure optimal results.
