Dr. Litrel Says “Consider the Doctor” When Choosing a Surgeon for Vaginal Rejuvenation

Double board-certified OB/GYN Dr. Michael Litrel of Cherokee Women’s Health Specialists is an expert surgeon, performing Vaginal Rejuvenation and reconstructive GYN surgeries in the Atlanta area.

Vaginal Rejuvenation surgery is an option for women who suffer from a variety of issues, including changes due to childbirth, sexual activity, or the natural aging process. However, not all surgeons are trained to perform these delicate surgeries and he cautions women on the importance of choosing the right type of surgeon to perform the procedures.

Why is Vaginal Rejuvenation Surgery Performed?

Vaginal Rejuvenation is performed for two reasons. One of them is to restore sensation, which may be reduced due to childbirth. In this procedure, the natural shape and size of a woman’s vagina is restored to the shape it was prior to having sex or to the shape it was after sex but prior to childbirth. The other reason for vaginal rejuvenation is to improve the outward aesthetics of the vagina, which is often done by removing excess skin. 

If a woman’s considering vaginal rejuvenation, it’s important that she understand the surgeon’s ability to improve and correct both the aesthetics as well as the inside of a woman’s body. Having personally seen this surgery performed by cosmetic surgeons, Dr. Litrel says that while the outward appearance may be improved, oftentimes nothing is done to correct the internal damage.

“That’s likely because they simply don’t have the training. Decreased sensation and pelvic reconstruction are primary reasons for having this surgery and because correcting these issues involve surgically reconstructing the anatomy, it’s imperative that women choose a surgeon with extensive experience and training.”
