Who is a candidate?

  • Women who desire a more youthful vagina.
  • Women who have enlarged labia minora (small lips)
  • Women who have difficulty with hygiene, intercourse and exercise as a result of the redundancy of the labia minora.

Intended results:

  • More youthful vagina.
  • A more positive self-image.
  • Improvement of hygiene and ability of exercise.
  • Creating a more sensual area for intimate moments.

Procedure description:

  • Vaginal rejuvenation is done on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia.
  • The excess and redundancy of the labia minora is tailored to fit the presentation.
  • Using novel techniques, the natural sheen and the sensitivity of the area is well maintained.
  • Occasionally fat is injected into the labia majora (large lips) in order to invigorate youthfulness.

Recuperation and healing after Vaginal Rejuvenation:

  • The patient goes home in a special undergarment. Some dressing will cover the area.
  • Initial discomfort is controlled with oral medication.
  • All sutures are dissolvable.
  • Light activity is tolerated in 5-7 days. Most patients go back to work in 1 week. Aerobic activities can be resumed in 4 weeks.
  • No intercourse for 6 weeks.
  • Final results become more evident in 2-3 months.

Other options besides Vaginal Rejuvenation:

  • Other options include laser hair removal of the bikini area and the vagina.
  • Also, occasionally an Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) might be needed to lift the entire mid pubic area in cases of significant aging.
  • Internal tightening procedures are controversial and should be looked upon with caution. A qualified gynecologist might be able to assist you.

Because of the sensitive nature of the area, photos can be shown to you during your consultation.
