Revive Your New Year with Vaginal Rejuvenation

When you think about having plastic surgery, you probably think about surgery on the nose, breast, or stomach. Having surgery on the vaginal area is not something that usually comes to mind. Plastic surgery is often about enhancing the look of a body part, rather than the function. With vaginal rejuvenation*, surgery is not necessarily meant to make the vagina look pretty; it is used to restore the vagina back to its youth. As you age, the vagina undergoes a lot of wear and tear. Having children can stretch the vaginal area and it can easily lose shape. Vaginal rejuvenation is a way to fix problems with looseness and more.

What Is Vaginal Rejuvenation?

Vaginal rejuvenation involves two different procedures. The first procedure is vaginoplasty, which focuses on tightening the walls of the vagina The second procedure is labiaplasty, reshaping the outer and inner lips of the vagina. If you have ever seen or experienced childbirth, you know how much the body stretches during a vaginal birth. Having multiple children only stretches the vagina more. Even sexual intercourse can cause some wear and tear over time. When the vagina is stretched, it certainly can change the way sex feels. The stretching of the vaginal lips can leave you feeling embarrassed or insecure with the look and feel of your vagina. If you notice some of these changes in yourself, vaginal rejuvenation can change your life.

Why Vaginal Rejuvenation?

Besides the obvious reasons of abnormal vaginal structure, you should also consider vaginal rejuvenation if sex becomes painful or sore. Along with soreness during sex, you also begin to lose sensation. It is not normal to have soreness and pain during bicycle riding and horseback riding either. Having any procedure has its pros and cons. Starting with the cons, though rare, you are at risk of bleeding and bladder injury. Initially, sex may take some time to adjust to. Having a tighter vaginal wall will make sex uncomfortable at first, but eventually, it will get better. These cons are not that bad compared to other forms of surgery. The pros include tightening vaginal muscles, we all know what that means… You will feel almost like you did in your youth. The new shape can help you to become more confident in wearing certain clothes, especially tight-fitting clothes and swimsuits.

How Vaginal Rejuvenation Works

The procedure is performed with a laser. The laser is precise and creates fewer risks. Extra skin is typically removed. The procedure can also flatten the top of the vagina, so it doesn’t bulge. Scars are not seen because incisions are made inside the vagina rather than around the outside. The first step is to find a gynecological surgeon that you are comfortable with and trust. The vagina is both a sensitive and precious area. Finding the right board-certified gynecologist can put you at ease and make you feel more confident about having vaginal rejuvenation. Do not let embarrassing vaginal problems get the best of you. It’s time to gain your youth back, to look and feel young again. Vaginal rejuvenation is the first step.
