There are several types of procedures aimed at improving the cosmetic and functional aspects of a woman’s vagina. Many patients needing a tummy tuck procedure complain of sagging of the pubic area which has cosmetic and functional effects. A part of the tummy tuck procedure involves lifting of the pubic area resulting in an improved cosmetic appearance and lifting of the clitoral area to a more sensitive position.
Labiaplasty is another rejuvenation procedure of the vaginal area. Many women, either genetically or as a result of pregnancies and aging, have abnormally long internal labia (labia minora) that may have an unattractive cosmetic appearance. In addition, they can be the cause of hygiene issues, interfere with clitoral stimulation, and also be the cause of painful intercourse. Labiaplasty surgery is a highly specialized procedure in which the inner labia are delicately reduced and reshaped. Care is taken to protect the clitoris, the clitoral hood, and the surrounding nerves. The procedure is usually done with mild sedation and a local anesthetic. The recovery is rapid and relatively painless. Scarring is virtually non-existent.
Vaginal Liposuction is another technique used to reshape the labia majora and pubic mons areas for an improved cosmetic appearance and again to make the clitoris more accessible and sensitive.
Lastly, vaginal tightening is a technique used for women who have developed looseness of the vaginal wall after childbirth or with age. Tightening of the vagina may enhance sexual pleasure of the woman and her partner. This procedure is generally performed by an OB-Gyn physician.
