The natural aging process, genetics, and childbirth can change the way the vaginal area looks and feels. Vaginal and labial laxity can have detrimental effects on a woman’s self-confidence and sexual satisfaction, which are vital for a heightened quality of life. At Pure Gold Medical Center, patients have several options for vaginal rejuvenation that can restore their most intimate area to a healthier condition.
Candidates for Vaginal Rejuvenation
The best candidates for vaginal rejuvenation do not smoke and are in generally good health. It is also crucial for them to have a realistic expectation of their results. Vaginal rejuvenation can improve the following concerns:
- Vaginal laxity
- Excessive labial tissue
- A lack of natural lubrication
- Difficulty climaxing during intercourse
- Physical discomfort during bicycling, sexual activity, or horseback riding
- Skin irritation due to sagging labia
Vaginal Rejuvenation Options
Dr. Apodaca performs three different types of vaginal rejuvenation techniques to alleviate his patients’ intimate aesthetic concerns and revitalize their self-esteem. The appropriate approach will depend on your needs and cosmetic objectives. All of your options will be discussed with you during a private consultation appointment, which may include:
Vaginoplasty: This surgical technique tightens the vaginal canal, which can widen after childbirth or with age. Incisions are created on the mucosal walls within the vagina to alter the inner structure.
Labiaplasty: Women with elongated labia minora or labia majora may consider this procedure. Incisions are created within the natural folds of the labia, through which excess tissue can be carefully excised.
ThermiVa®: Those with minor vaginal and labial laxity can benefit from non-surgical treatment with ThermiVa®. ThermiVa® can rejuvenate the vaginal area and enhance sexual function using radiofrequency energy.
Recovery After Vaginal Rejuvenation
Recovery time after vaginal rejuvenation varies from patient-to-patient. Some pain can be expected after surgical rejuvenation procedures, but ThermiVa® does not result in any post-treatment discomfort. Over-the-counter medication can provide some relief from uncomfortable side effects. During your consultation, you will be given aftercare directions to make your recovery as quick as possible.
Vaginal Rejuvenation Results
The effects of surgical vaginal rejuvenation are intended to be long-lasting. Patients who opt for non-surgical treatment may need one to two maintenance sessions per year to preserve their results. Aging, pregnancy, childbirth, and other factors can contribute to vaginal changes after a rejuvenation procedure.
