Commonly asked questions about Vaginal Rejuvenation:

What Is Vaginal Rejuvenation?

Vaginal rejuvenation is a blanket term that covers a number of different procedures. Labiaplasty, plastic surgery on the labia (the “lips” surrounding the vagina), can be performed alone or with vaginoplasty. Surgery can be performed on the labia major (the larger, outer vaginal lips), or the labia minor (the smaller, inner vaginal lips).

Labiaplasty changes the size or shape of the labia, typically making them smaller or correcting an asymmetry between them. Surgeons use a laser, radiofrequency waves, cryotherapy, or other devices to tighten vaginal tissues. Among the processes are classified as:

  • Vaginal rejuvenation (labiaplasty)
  • Clitoral hood reduction
  • Labia majoraplasty
  • Monsplasty
  • Vaginoplasty

Vaginal Rejuvenation (Labiaplasty)

Vaginoplasty (posterior colporrhaphy) is a procedure designed to tighten the vagina. An alternative is noninvasive vaginal tightening through heating tissues with radiofrequency waves or laser.

A vaginoplasty brings the separated muscles together, and the extra mucosa skin from the back side of the vagina is removed. The external skin can also be removed for a more aesthetic appearance.

Clitoral Hood Reduction

A clitoral hood reduction is a procedure that reduces the length and size of your clitoral hood. The procedure decreases the amount your clitoral hood protrudes to make it less prominent.

Your clitoris is covered up by a hood of tissue technically known as the prepuce. The clitoral hood serves to protect the clitoris from being constantly rubbed.

Labia Majoraplasty

A labia majoraplasty is a procedure designed to surgically reduce the size of the outer, hair-bearing labia majora. This procedure typically results in smaller, tighter labia majora. In patients with excess skin, drooping of the labia majora when the patient is standing is usually improved. In patients with excess volume, this procedure can result in a lower profile.

Monsplasty

A monsplasty is a procedure designed to reduce bulging of the mons. The purpose of a monsplasty is to reduce the amount of fatty tissue and/or skin, depending on the cause of the bulge.

This procedure results in a lower profile mons that typically projects less in clothing. In some patients with a mons that hangs, removal of excess skin can result in less hanging.

Viginoplasty

Vaginoplasty (also known as posterior colporrhaphy) is a procedure designed to tighten the vagina. A vaginoplasty brings the separated muscles together, and the extra mucosa skin from the back side of the vagina is removed.

Commonly Known Names For Vaginal Rejuvenation

The term vaginal rejuvenation covers several different procedures. It is sometimes called:

  • Female Genital Plastic Surgery
  • Female Genital Rejuvenation Surgery
  • Female Genital Cosmetic Surgery
  • Vulvovaginal Plastic Surgery
  • Designer Vagina Surgery

Serious Side Effects Of Vaginal Rejuvenation Surgery

Vaginal Rejuvenation surgery has been found to cause several serious side effects, leading injured patients to file lawsuits.

Vaginal Burns

Vaginal burns can cause discomfort anywhere in the vaginal area, such as your:

  • labia
  • clitoris
  • vaginal opening

These symptoms may begin suddenly or grow in intensity over time. The burning and irritation may be constant, or it may worsen during an activity like urination or sexual intercourse.

Scarring

Most vaginal rejuvenation procedures improve genital appearance but in some cases vaginal scarring has caused dead spots or a loss of sensation and thicker tissue than normal skin around the wound, resulting in additional surgery.

Significant Chronic Pain

Chronic severe pain and swelling at/around the surgical wound days after the anesthetic wears off.

Bleeding

Excessive bleeding from the surgical wound that can lead to a blood clot forming.

Infection

Infection of the surgical area around the surgical wound where the vaginal opening area is accessible to contamination with fluid from the vaginal tract, urinary tract, and alimentary (fecal) tract.

Dryness

Vaginal rejuvenation can be used to combat vaginal dryness in women but in some cases, patients have experienced vaginal dryness after the procedure.

Adhesion

Adhesion (Labial Adhesion) is the joining of the left and right labia minora resulting in a narrowed vaginal opening (the vaginal introitus). The introitus can be as small as a pinhead when labial adhesions are severe.

An adhesion may lead to dribbling urine on standing up after passing urine.

Numbness Or Loss Of Sensation

During vaginal rejuvenation surgery, nerves can be severed or damaged, leading to either hyposensation (a lack of sensation) or hypersensation (too much sensation). Since nerves normally do not regenerate, this is a permanent side effect.
