As a woman, you’ll experience a variety of bodily changes throughout your life. Due to factors like aging, pregnancy, and genetics, some of these changes can take place in and around the vagina. For example, the vagina and surrounding tissue can lose strength and elasticity, which can cause issues like vaginal dryness, reduced sexual pleasure, and incontinence. If you’d like to improve the overall appearance and function of your vagina, surgical vaginal rejuvenation could be the right choice.
Vaginal rejuvenation is a broad term for any type of vaginal corrective procedure. Surgical vaginal rejuvenation is often performed for cosmetic purposes, but it can also be performed to increase sexual stimulation, correct incontinence, and tighten the vaginal muscles and tissue.
There are several types of surgical vaginal rejuvenation that are commonly performed:
Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure used to reduce or increase the size of the labia. The labia are the folds of skin around the vaginal opening, and many women opt to have their size reduced for aesthetic reasons. Labiaplasty can also be performed as part of gender-affirming surgery.
Vaginoplasty is a surgical procedure used to repair or construct a vagina. The surgery is commonly performed to treat medical issues, including vaginal injury due to childbirth. Vaginoplasty can also be performed to create a vagina for a transgender woman.
Clitoral hood reduction is a surgical procedure used to reduce the size of the clitoral hood. The clitoral hood is the skin fold that protects the clitoris, and reducing its size can increase sexual stimulation. In some cases, a large clitoral hood can also be prone to irritation. Clitoral hood reduction can also be performed for aesthetic purposes.
The benefits of vaginal rejuvenation can vary depending on which surgery is performed. Some of the benefits offered include:
Adults interested in improving the appearance and/or function of their vagina could be good candidates for vaginal rejuvenation. You may be an ideal candidate if you meet the following requirements:
Surgical vaginal rejuvenation procedures are typically performed on an outpatient basis, and you’ll be able to return home within a few hours of your surgery. You’ll need someone to drive you home and, ideally, stay with you for at least the first night.
It will be important to rest frequently for the first few days, but most patients are able to return to work and their normal routines after about a week. You should wait to have sexual intercourse for at least three to five days after undergoing vaginal rejuvenation. Additionally, you should refrain from strenuous physical activity for approximately three weeks.
