Vaginal rejuvenation is a procedure used to improve the structure and/or appearance of the vagina. It’s a popular choice among women who have noticed changes to the vagina because of age, significant weight loss, childbirth, or trauma.
Vaginal rejuvenation may include labiaplasty and/or vaginoplasty. During labiaplasty, Dr. Mayer reshapes the outer and/or inner lips of the vagina. During vaginoplasty, Dr. Mayer tightens the vagina.
Dr. Mayer uses a laser to perform vaginal rejuvenation procedures. The laser is similar to a scalpel, but it allows for more precise incisions, less bleeding, and better results.
Vaginal rejuvenation is appropriate for patients who want to improve the appearance or integrity of the vagina. It may be beneficial for patients with vaginas that sag because of aging, pregnancy, or other factors. Women with scarring in the vagina or stress urinary incontinence may also benefit from vaginal rejuvenation procedures.
Women who undergo vaginal rejuvenation often enjoy better self-confidence. This procedure can also improve comfort, reduce the symptoms of stress incontinence, and improve the outward appearance of the vagina.
Because Dr. Mayer uses laser technology to perform these procedures, every incision is precise. The results of the procedure are long-lasting, and scarring is minimal. In addition, Dr. Mayer can customize vaginal rejuvenation procedures to meet the needs of each patient.
Like all surgical procedures, vaginal rejuvenation includes risks. Some of the possible risks of vaginal rejuvenation include bleeding, bladder injury, and infection. Some women who undergo vaginal rejuvenation surgery may also need some time to adjust to the increased tightness in the vagina.
During the procedure, Dr. Mayer will administer anesthesia. Following the procedure, women may experience soreness. Dr. Mayer will provide medication to help the patient control postoperative pain.
The recovery period for vaginal rejuvenation varies based on the extent of the procedure and other factors. Dr. Mayer will help each patient understand how long her recovery period will be and what she should expect during this period.
