The term vaginal rejuvenation is often discussed in the media as a means to improve the labia minora and majora, but many women aren’t familiar with the term or feel too uncomfortable talking about such a sensitive area.
Vaginal rejuvenation is basically a facelift for the vulva and vagina. While most people may believe that these surgeries are meant for increasing your confidence and cosmetic reasons, it’s completely not true. It enhances, tones, and tightens your vaginal muscles to improve its aesthetics and function.
In a publication of Marie Claire, a survey noted from the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery stated 53,332 vaginal rejuvenation procedures in the year 2009 by U.S. doctors. They also gave an account that 60 percent of these procedures are performed on women between the age of 20 to 39.
What Is Vaginal Rejuvenation And Why do You Need it?
Your vaginal region can change as a result of the aging process, giving birth. It may become desensitized to stimulation, cause discomfort, or look unsightly to some women.
Some reasons like pelvic cancer or surgeries, obesity, genetics, etc. could lead to damage to your pelvic region. It could stretch your labia minora and majora and make it asymmetrical and give it a dangling appearance.
This problem is not only limited to just looking bad, but it could also cause urinary problems, painful consummation, and irritation while doing exercises or regular work. A vaginal rejuvenation can help improve upon those problems and give women the confidence and comfort they desire.
Details of the Procedure
The vaginal rejuvenation procedure consists of two processes: labiaplasty and vaginoplasty.
Labiaplasty: Helps to improve upon defects related to the labia minora and majora, and the inner and outer folds of the vulva, commonly known as the vaginal lips. Using this technique, your surgeon will reshape the labia to give it a more youthful and aesthetically pleasing appearance.
Vaginoplasty: This process is used to tighten your vaginal canal, commonly known as the love canal. The defects may be caused by stretching during childbirth, cancer, or physical trauma. It can reduce the size of the vaginal orifice or change the appearance of the vulva to make it look better. Your surgeon will remove the excess vaginal lining and tighten the muscle and soft tissue.
Some other procedures like G-spot amplification and clitoral unhooding are also performed to attain the same result. Your surgeon will assess your body as a whole and talk to you about your needs and goals to develop a customized plan to deliver the results you desire.
What to Expect After the Procedure
The procedure may be performed on an outpatient basis, but you may need to stay a few hours to rest up before leaving. You will experience slight discomfort after the surgery but your doctor may prescribe medication to help make you feel more comfortable.
You might be asked not to have sexual intercourse or use tampons for four to six weeks to ensure that you heal properly. You can resume your regular activities after four to seven days after the treatment if you follow your doctor’s instructions to help speed up the recovery process.
