What is a Labia Rejuvenation?
“The most important decision you’ll make is NOT whether to have a labiaplasty, or vaginoplasty procedure performed . . . the MOST important decision you’ll make is to find the best surgeon for the procedure.”
Labiaplasty (labia reduction/rejuvenation) and other female cosmetic surgical procedures including Vaginoplasty (rejuvenation or tightening of the vagina) have become widespread as social acceptance of these cosmetic and reconstructive procedures moves toward the mainstream. Labia surgery, which usually involves labia reduction—and vaginal rejuvenation, or tightening, are becoming as common today as other cosmetic procedures, including tummy tucks, liposuction and breast augmentation. New advancements and multiple surgical techniques for
Labiaplasty and Vaginoplasty typically lessen scarring, pain, recovery time, and show excellent results.
Medical or functional indications/reasons for labiaplasty (labia surgery) can include asymmetry (uneven dimensions of the labia) or
labial hypertrophy disorders, such as the need for the reduction of tissue from overly large or thick labia minora that can result in
constant irritation in tight pants and discomfort when engaging in sports or other physical activities. These are labeled functional
issues. In many of these cases, most women are either born with large labia or they become enlarged at puberty. Sometimes they may develop
this condition with childbirth (torn tissues) or age. In these cases, surgery of the labia represents a relatively safe solution.
The Reasons for Getting a Vaginoplasty Are Considerably Different Than Labiaplasty
Vaginoplasty involves issues that affect women who have given birth vaginally, have had multiple children, difficult child birth, or those who have had a large baby. As vaginoplasty is not an external surgery of the body, and instead involves internal work, it is not based on aesthetic issues. Largely, it deals with tightening of the tissues of the vaginal vault, or inner chamber (forneces) via methods to reduce
volumetric capacity—to provide greater friction during sexual intercourse. Vaginal enlargement is frequently a problem after natural childbirth of a large baby or a difficult delivery. Typically, the vagina and its supporting muscles and tissues, becomes stretched and/or torn during childbirth—this can include the area known as the pelvic floor—which sadly, almost never returns to its former state after normal childbirth has occurred. The specialized surgical tightening and rejuvenation of the vagina, perineum, and the supporting muscles, is Vaginoplasty. Evolution in societal views about sexuality and marital relationships has resulted in increasing numbers of vaginoplasty procedures over the last several years. Many of the same social views that inhibited labiaplasty are also being cast aside with vaginoplasty. Many women, whose children are now grown, are now seeking renewal of the vaginal tissues—vaginal tightening—specifically to enhance the sexual experience they have
with existing or new mates.
