Women today are much more in tune with the appearance of all aspects of their body. Some women have enlarged inner vaginal lips (labia minora) that extend beyond the typically larger outer lips (labia majora). In addition to making some women self-conscious, this is a true medical condition called Labial Hypertrophy. Women can present with multiple symptoms some due to function and/or appearance. Most commonly labial hypertrophy results from pregnancy, childbirth and hormonal changes; however there are many other causes. This results in sagging and relaxed labia so women seek to restore a more youthful appearance. Some causes are congenital and present in adolescence such as extreme asymmetry of the labia, which can interfere with sports activities and image. Regardless of the cause, the symptoms are similar: pain or interference during intercourse and discomfort with certain exercises such as bike riding. With tight clothes or swimwear there may be obvious protrusion of the labia.
Labiaplasty (surgical reduction of the labia minora) involves excision of the redundant tissue leaving NO visible scars. There are many different surgical approaches for labiaplasty such as the simple edge-excision technique versus a more complex wedge-excision technique that can leave a more natural labial edge and protect the clitoral hood. Always ensure that your surgeon is familiar with all forms of labiaplasty so that you receive the right procedure for your body.It is typically performed as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia and sedation. Most women can return to work in less than a week. Physical activity is limited for 4 weeks. Patients must avoid tight clothes and thongs, and must abstain from intercourse for 6 weeks. The end result is thinner labia with a youthful appearance and increased comfort that women appreciate.
Labiaplasty also can be performed to tighten the labia majora, although often other procedures such as fat transfer are needed to plump the flattened labia majora. Unlike the labia minor, which always require surgical reduction, the appearance of the labia major can often be enhanced with newer, non-surgical technology such as the TermiVaradiofrquency probe.
Another option when considering vaginal rejuvenation is Vaginoplasty. Vaginal relaxation can occur from having children and other natural processes that can result in a widened or relaxed vaginal canal. Many women complain of less gratifying sexual intercourse as the more ample vagina leads to less friction and in turn less pleasure. There are many medical studies showing that Vaginoplasty improves sexual function due to increased friction.
For women who are simply too stretched out or who have true rectocele deformities (see images below), non-invasive options for vaginal rejuvination such as the ThermiVa radiofrequency probe are not an option. Vaginoplasty is a surgical procedure that decreases the diameter of the vaginal canal by removing redundant vaginal tissue from the posterior side (bottom or rectal side) of the vagina. The underlying muscular tissue is plicated together to add strength to the vagina and add support to the bladder and rectum. This procedure has been performed for many years for treatment of rectal prolapse and is also known as a posterior colporrhaphy. The outer vagina and perineum (area between the vaginal and anal opening) is also tightened (perineoplasty).
The Gräfenberg Spot, often called the G-Spot, is a bean-shaped area of the anterior vagina. Many women report that it is an erogenous zone that, when stimulated, can lead to strong sexual arousal, powerful orgasms and female ejaculation. Stimulation of the G-Spot contributes to orgasms during intercourse. The G-Spot is typically located one to three inches (2.5 to 7.6 cm) up the front (anterior) vaginal wall from the opening and is a sensitive area.
G-Spot Enhancement (G-Shot) is a painless office procedure performed under local anesthesia designed to increase the size of the G-Spot and facilitate G-Spot stimulation. During the procedure, a careful examination is performed to precisely identify the location of your G-Spot. A specially designed speculum is used to assist in the delivery a specified amount of dermal filler directly into the G-Spot. This augments (enlarges) the G-Spot, resulting in a G-Spot about the size of a quarter in width, and ¼ inch in height (meaning the projection into the vagina). Thus, bringing you more in tune with your own sensuality. The effect can last for up to 4 months, and in a pilot study, 87% of women surveyed after receiving the G-Spot enhancement reported enhanced sexual arousal/gratification. Results will vary.
