Vaginal Rejuvenation

Also known as female genital plastic surgery or aesthetic vaginal surgery

Vaginal rejuvenation usually combines vaginoplasty (“tightening” of the vagina) and/or labiaplasty or vulvaplasty (reshaping of the vulva or labia, the outer and inner lips of the vagina). It has become an increasingly popular option for women. For individuals who desire recontouring after childbirth, significant weight loss, aging or injury to genital structures, vaginal rejuvenation offers increased self-confidence and comfort.

When to Consider Vaginal Rejuvenation

  • If the contours of your vaginal structures have altered and stretched over time.
  • If you experience soreness or pain with sexual activity, bicycle riding or horseback riding.
  • If the effects of multiple vaginal deliveries have led to reduced sensation during intercourse.

Pros

  • Your vagina and surrounding muscles will return to nearly the tightness you had in your youth or before pregnancies.
  • A recontoured, trim vagina may boost your self-confidence.
  • You may find that wearing clothing, such as bikini bottoms or panties, is enhanced by your sleek new shape.

Cons

  • Bladder injury, hemorrhage and infection might occur.
  • Your partner and you may need some time to adjust to the new sensations resulting from your tightened vaginal walls.
  • You may need to experiment to find positions and approaches that are comfortable and pleasurable for both you and your partner.

Am I a good candidate for vaginal rejuvenation?

The following are some common reasons why you may want to consider vaginal rejuvenation:

  • Your vaginal structures sag and have become more lax due to aging, weight loss or pregnancies.
  • You have discomfort from scarring as a result of previous genital surgeries.
  • You have stress urinary incontinence and wish to combine a “vaginal lift” with a corrective procedure.
  • You desire a sleeker, more refined contour to your labia and vulva.
