What is Vaginal Rejuvenation?
The term vaginal rejuvenation refers to any alternations in vaginal anatomy, both internally and externally, for cosmetic or reconstructive reasons. Individuals may choose to undergo vaginal rejuvenation for relief from disrupted functions (leakage or dryness), improved sensation during intercourse, or enhancement of cosmetic external appearance. Possible improvements may include eliminating vaginal dryness, tightening of the vagina, and decreasing incontinence. Labiaplasty is often performed to remove excess external labia or clitoral hood tissue (clitoral hood reduction).
In Toledo, vaginal rejuvenation for cosmetic purposes could improve outward vaginal appearance through various treatments. Alterations to the labia, clitoral hood, and vulva are a few cosmetic options for vaginal rejuvenation. Internal procedures may include tightening the vaginal canal and repairing the perineum, a skin area located between the vagina and anus, which childbirth may damage.
Types of Vaginal Rejuvenation Treatments
A vaginoplasty performance aims to tighten the vaginal canal by removing excess skin and bringing the muscles closer together. It may be accompanied by a perineoplasty, which repairs the perineum located between the anus and vagina.
During a labiaplasty, a reshaping of the labia occurs by removing extra tissue of the labia minora. Results aim to reduce labia length, correct asymmetry, and alter the general labia shape. The extra labial tissue that is removed often is pinched or uncomfortable in certain clothing or activities including intercourse or exercise and this is alleviated with labiaplasty. You may have no symptoms and simply want to improve the external appearance. There is no such thing as a correct or incorrect appearance to a vagina. It is all about what you want!
A labia majoraplasty procedure intends to reduce the size of the labia majora. Reasons for this procedure include discomfort due to increased size or aesthetic preferences.
Labia Majora Augmentation
Opposite to a labia majoraplasty, a labia majora augmentation aims to enhance the size or shape of the outer lips of the vagina using fat or a hyaluronic acid filler. Results provide a more youthful or rejuvenated appearance of the outer vagina. This can be performed with your own fat (most common) or with other injectables such as sculptra or hyaluronic products.
The mons is an area of fatty tissue or skin located on the pubic bone above the vulva. A monsplasty aims to reduce excess fat or skin that creates bulging and/ or ptosis(droop) in the mons area, especially after a patient’s significant weight fluctuations or changes.
Clitoral Hood Reduction
Typically performed along with a labiaplasty, a clitoral hood reduction is a technique used to reduce skin size around the clitoris so that the more sensitive clitoral tissue may be more exposed and improve the petite appearance of this delicate area. This technique may be used as a method to enhance sexual pleasure or simply improve the appearance.
