Vaginal Rejuvenation and Labiaplasty


Vaginal and perinium relaxation iswhen the vagina is stretched loose with poor tone, primarily due to aging and the birth of children. It can often result in decreased vaginal sensation during sex. Vaginal rejuvenation will give a patient an excellent cosmetic appearance of the Vulva and can enhance sexual gratification.

Labiaplasty will reduce the discomfort of daily activities such as walking and exercise. We offer laser labiaplasty and vaginaplasty, which is incisionless and, will tighten & restore the labia and vagina to a state prior to childbirth.


 

Vaginoplasty is a reconstructive surgery procedure used to construct or reconstruct a vaginal canal and mucous membrane. The term vaginoplasty is used to describe any such vaginal surgery, while the term neovaginoplasty is more specifically used to refer to procedures of partial or total construction or reconstruction of the vulvovaginal complex. These may be absent in a woman, due either to congenital disease such as vaginal atresia or to an acquired cause, such as trauma or cancer.

In women, menstruation and fertilization are assured when the uterus and ovaries have preserved a normal function. In a few cases, vaginal childbirth is possible.

The outcome of vaginoplasty is variable. It usually allows sexual intercourse, although sensation is not always present. The limiting factors to vaginal dimensions are from the Denonvilliers' Fascia (depth) and the Levator Ani muscle (diameter).

Labiaplasty reduces the size of one or both sets of labia. It may also be employed to repair the labia following disease or injury, or especially after childbirth. In addition, a hoodectomy may be performed at the same time, which exposes the clitoris in an attempt to increase sexual stimulation. Hoodectomy is sometimes used to treat sexual dysfunction such as anorgasmia.

Labial reduction: before and after
As recently as 1999, surgeons usually performed labium reduction by straight amputation of the protuberant sections and then by suturing the edges together.[2] However, this procedure sometimes created a fragile and stiff suture line as well as eliminating the natural contour and pigmentation of the labia minora. Moreover, other procedural and clinical problems existed with amputation that did not ensure a favorable outcome.
Several years later, more surgeons introduced lasers into their armamentarium and began using more refined surgical procedures, such as inferior wedge resection and superior pedicle flap reconstruction. In one outcome study, surgeons studied the results of 20 patients undergoing labiaplasty via the procedure. 95.2 percent of patients at 46 months reported being very satisfied. While five complications cropped up, all but one were handled immediately postoperatively and did not require additional hospital stays or interfere with healing.[3]


Labiaplasty is almost always an outpatient procedure performed under anesthesia. It is debated as to whether a local or short general anesthetic delivers better patient comfort. After surgery, patients may experience some mild discomfort and variable swelling, which usually disappear for the most part after one to two weeks.
