If you are one of the millions of women taking control of how they feel and look, you may be curious about the vaginal cosmetic procedures available to you. Feeling good about your intimate areas can greatly enhance your confidence, sexuality, emotional well-being and the way you view yourself.
What are vaginal cosmetic procedures?
Several procedures fall under the heading of vaginal cosmetic procedures including:
- Labiaplasty: This surgery involves reducing the size of the labia minora (the inner folds of skin on the vagina). In some cases, labiaplasty can involve reducing the labia majora (the outer portion of the vagina). It can also be performed on someone that desires more symmetry to their labia. This is one of the most common vaginal cosmetic procedures.
- Vaginoplasty: Also known as vaginal rejuvenation, this procedure is aimed at tightening the inside of the vagina and vaginal opening by removing excess tissue. Vaginoplasty can result in a more toned and smaller vagina especially for those that have lost muscle tone due to childbirth.
Am I a candidate for vaginal cosmetic procedures?
If you feel that the size of your labia is a concern for you, you may be a good candidate for labiaplasty. Vaginoplasty can be an excellent procedure for those seeking to tighten their vaginal canal. During your consultation, you will be able to speak with one of our team of award-winning surgeons regarding your expectations, desires and any questions that you may have.
What should I expect during my vaginal cosmetic procedure?
A labiaplasty may be performed using general or local anesthesia. The surgeon will reshape the vaginal lips using a scalpel or laser and will then use dissolvable stitches to finalize the operation.
A vaginoplasty may be performed under general or local anesthesia, but your surgeon may recommend that is performed under general anesthesia. The vaginal canal will be tightened, and any excess skin will be removed. Sutures are then used to tighten the canal and keep it in place so it can heal properly.
What is the recovery for vaginal cosmetic procedures?
Recovery times will vary depending on the procedure performed; however, we will recommend that you take a week off from work or your regular activities to ensure your healing goes as planned. You will need to rest for the first few days after the procedure so it can be helpful to have a friend or family member to help you with your daily activities for the first several days. While most swelling will resolve after SIX weeks, it is possible for a minor amount of swelling to persist for several more months.
