It’s never too late for vaginal rejuvenation. Women should not have to feel insecure about the appearance and feel of their vagina. Yet, many women suffer in silence with embarrassing symptoms such as vaginal looseness because they accept it as part of the natural aging process. In addition to vaginal laxity, decreased sexual sensation with sexual intercourse can put undue strain on a woman’s self-confidence with intimacy. The causes of these uncomfortable symptoms result from damage sustained during childbirth, alongside the effects of aging. Through vaginal rejuvenation surgery, women can regain a positive self-image and a better sense of intimacy.
What is Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Cherokee Women’s Health serves the Atlanta Metro and offers two types of Vaginal Rejuvenation surgeries. Vaginoplasty and labiaplasty are two genital rejuvenation procedures that can improve vulvar tone, vaginal laxity, and vaginal looseness. Both vaginoplasty and labiaplasty can be performed in an hour. Recovery times vary depending on the extent of the surgery. Women may choose to have both procedures performed together, or choose the surgery that will offer them the benefits they are seeking.
Vaginoplasty – This procedure is a tightening and rejuvenation of the vagina. The purpose is to reduce the opening of the vagina and tighten the vaginal canal that may have widened after childbirth. Benefits of the procedure can lead to a more satisying sex life. A 60 minute surgery, vaginoplasty can be performed with general or local anesthetic in a hospital setting, or in the office.
Labiaplasty – This genital rejuvenation procedure reduces the size of, or reshapes the labia minora, or labia majora. This process can help decrease the pain and discomfort of enlarged labia, or correct an irregularity of the labia. It improves the aesthetics and appearance of the external tissues and produces optimal vulvar tone. Labiaplasty also takes approximately 60 minutes to perform. Sedative options include general or local anesthesia.
