Sometimes how a woman “perceives” how she looks in the vaginal region can have untoward effects on her life. It can threaten her self-esteem, reduce her sexual desire and excitement, affect her love life, and cause vaginal discomfort.
That’s why many women are now seeking cosmetic vaginal surgery to recreate sexual excitement, restore self-esteem and rejuvenate their love lives. Vaginoplasty, (vaginal rejuvenation and tightening) and labia surgery in the form of Labiaplasty labia reduction and beautification) have become quite common. Hymenoplasty (reconstruction of the hymen) returns the ruptured hymen to a pre-sexual state.
Vaginoplasty (vaginal rejuvenation) Female Cosmetic Plastic Surgery
Vaginoplasty (rejuvenation of the vagina) involves “tightening” and rebuilding of the vaginal muscles and the perineum. Childbirth, (especially multiple), aging, and genetic factors often cause the vaginal muscles to stretch, loosen, and sag. The diameter of the vagina gets bigger and there is a loss of feeling (and pleasure). Vaginoplasty tightens and restores the vagina and supporting structures to a “pre-pregnancy” state, thereby re-establishing friction that increases sexual gratification for both women and men!
Some doctors use a laser for vaginoplasty and/ or labiaplasty surgery. You may hear variations of terms such as laser labiaplasty, laser vaginal rejuvenation and laser vaginoplasty or vaginal tightening. The difference is that some doctors use the laser for vaginal surgery and some use a scalpel. We prefer the scalpel for simplicity and better cosmetic results.
In vaginal relaxation, the muscles are relaxed and have poor tone, strength, and control. The internal and external diameters increase. The muscles of the perineum are weak and poorly supported. Under these circumstances, the vagina is no longer at its optimum physiological state. As a result, the sensual side of sexual gratification is diminished. Vaginoplasty can enhance sexual gratification for women who for whatever reason lack an overall optimum architectural integrity of the vagina.
No one wants to age or lose optimal function anywhere, and this includes the vaginal and vulvar structures.
Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that will reduce and/or reshape the labia minora. Some women are born with large labia, others may develop this condition with childbirth or age. In some instances, women with large labia can experience pain or embarrassment during intercourse, or feel discomfort during everyday activities or when wearing tight-fitting clothing. Others may feel unattractive due to large or unequal labia minora. Labiaplasty can sculpture elongated or unequal labial minora (small inner lips) according to one’s specification. Some women tell us that they do not want the small inner lips to project beyond the large outer lips. Many women bring us Playboy photos and to show how they would like to look. With labiaplasty, we can tailor the desired result to a woman’s wishes.
Hymenoplasty and Hymen Restoration Surgery
Hymenoplasty or hymen repair (hymen restoration surgery) is only performed at the request of someone who needs the surgery for ethnic, cultural, or religious reasons. Also, most surgeons will not perform hymenoplasty surgery on a woman who has given birth.
The hymen is a ring-like skin membrane that sits in the lower 1/3 of the vagina. Most often there is a 5 or 6 pointed star opening in the hymen after maturity. With first intercourse or by accident from falling or tampons, 2 or 3 areas tear in the hymen. Most often there is bleeding at the time of tearing.
The hymenoplasty procedure reconstructs the hymen to reform the star-shaped “ring” as it was prior to relations, accident etc. It is made small enough so that when first sexual relations occur later on, it will “tear” again, there will be some pain, and there will be slight bleeding.
