What is a Aesthetic Vaginal Surgery?

Aesthetic vaginal procedures are specialized surgeries that are available to help women regain sexual vitality that may be lost due to aging or child birth. These procedures can resurface and tighten the tissues to bring back a youthful appearance and a more satisfaction in sexual intercourse.

Vaginoplasty

Vaginoplasty is a surgical procedure designed to tighten and rejuvenate a woman’s vagina. This is accomplished by removing excess lining and repairing the surrounding soft tissues. This procedure can correct the problem of stretched vaginal muscles resulting from childbirth(s) for women who are unsatisfied due to the lack of vaginal strength and tone, or have not had children but still desire improvement. Vaginoplasty is designed to decrease the diameter of the vagina, resulting in increased friction during intercourse, making the experience more pleasurable for both partners.

Vaginoplasty is occasionally performed to revise abnormalities, and certain congenital conditions, such as absence of a vagina at birth. It can also be performed to repair the vaginal area following disease or injury. Overall, this procedure can help to provide greater self-esteem and confidence in your appearance. Labiaplasty, a surgical procedure to beautify the outer appearance of the vagina by reducing the size and/or reshape the labia minor (“lips”), may be combined with vaginoplasty for total rejuvenation.

Labiaplasty

Labiaplasty also referred to as labioplasty, is a surgical procedure that will reduce and/or reshape the labia minora - the skin that covers the female clitoris and vaginal opening. In some instances, women with large labia can experience pain during intercourse, or feel discomfort during everyday activities or when wearing tight-fitting clothing. Others may feel unattractive because the enlarged labia minora can have an abnormal appearance that can be uncomfortable and embarrassing. , or they may wish to enhance their sexual experiences by removing some of the skin that covers the clitoris. The purpose of a labiaplasty is to better define the inner labia.

During this procedure the urethral opening can be redefined, and if necessary improvements to the vagina may be made. The problem can be caused by genetics, sexual intercourse or difficulties in childbirth.

A special reconstructive plastic surgical technique for labia reduction surgery, which uses the Ellman Surgitron, is available to reduce uneven or large labia minora to a more comfortable, and more appealing size and shape. The Ellman Surgitron, compared to traditional cautery, has dramatically decreased the scarring from surgery.

The surgery is usually performed under local anesthesia (awake). Patients may choose conscious sedation to help them feel more relaxed and comfortable. General anesthesia is an option for some patients. The procedure is outpatient. This procedure can be done in conjunction with Vaginoplasty for a total rejuvenation.

Perineoplasty

The perimeun is the visible area between the vagina and the rectum. During childbirth, sometimes epsiotomies are cut and tears occur in this region.

Perineoplasty is a surgical procedure that is used a to correct damaged perineum. There are two variations of the procedure, depending on the condition to be treated. The first is designed to tighten perineal muscles and the vagina, the second is designed to loosen the muscles and the vagina.

Similar to vaginoplasty, the procedure typically tones vaginal muscle, thereby permitting greater sensation during sexual experiences.

Clitoral Hood Reduction

A clitoral hood reduction is a surgical technique that helps remove skin around the clitoris. This can also be termed a clitoral unhooking and is performed in women who may have difficulty reaching orgasm due to the extra skin in this area.

Hymenoplasty

Hymenoplasty, sometimes call revirgination, is simply repair or reconstruction of a torn or stretched hymen. This procedure is usually sought for cultural and religious reasons, making the woman appear as a virgin again.

Skin Resurfacing

skin resurfacing provides rejuvenation for skin that has been damaged by age
