Vaginal Rejuvenation: How to Make Sure It’s As Rewarding As You Hope

With age, menopause, and childbirth, most women discover physiological changes gradually manifesting in their bodies. One of these changes may be the loosening or deterioration of the vaginal muscles. If you're currently dealing with these symptoms, this article was written for you!

To reverse vaginal laxness, many women opt for vaginal rejuvenation treatments in a Buffalo WNY practice nearby. There are plenty of medications in the market that promise to restore the visual appeal and sensitivity of the pelvic region. This is why it's crucial to do your research before you make a decision.

So when we talk about "physiological changes", what exactly do we mean? Well, we're referring to the changes that become evident in the vaginal canal/wall, and even the pelvic floor region.

What is the difference between plastic and cosmetic surgery? While closely related, these terms aren't the same. Both refer to surgically adding to the visual appeal, symmetry, and proportion of the anatomy. Cosmetic surgery is focused on simply enhancing appearance. Plastic surgery is focused on repairing defects of the anatomy so as to restore proper function and appearance.

Is Vaginal Rejuvenation the Solution You've Been Searching For?

Let's begin with the most pressing question, namely, what is female rejuvenation surgery? Vaginal rejuvenation (vaginoplasty) aims at mending the vaginal muscles to bring back their elasticity and thereby eliminate vaginal incontinence, enhance vaginal lubrication and restore erotic sensations.

In essence, surgery of this caliber aims to reduce the vagina's diameter as well as tighten the internal and external vaginal canal. These attentions increase the quality of the orgasm as the excess and loose vaginal tissue that impedes the normal functioning of the vagina has now been removed.

Common Reasons That Prompt Most Women to Opt for Surgery

  • - Vaginal looseness following one or more births
  • - Torn tissue as a result of childbirth, an injury or a poorly healed episiotomy
  • - A prolapse of the pelvic organ
  • - Urinary incontinence
  • - Decreased sexual pleasure because of inadequate pelvic friction during intercourse

In fact, research has shown that 1 out of 2 women are inflicted with urinary incontinence after giving birth.

Aside from performance, physiological changes could also refer to a deterioration in the physical aspects of the vagina.

All Vaginal Rejuvenation Surgeries Aren't Made Equal

Rather than alluding to just one type of procedure, vaginal rejuvenation is a broader concept for a number of different surgeries; all concerning the physical and functional aspects of the female genitalia.

The term itself is concerned with either one of two things;

  • - The procedure that alters the vaginal appearance - known as cosmetic vaginal rejuvenation.
  • - The procedure that repairs atrophic vaginitis (vaginal discomfort) that occurs due to menopause and childbirth.

The nature of the procedure that your surgeon administers depends on the symptoms you want to treat and your overall gynecological health. To enjoy the most benefits post surgery, it's important to be forthcoming with your surgeon. Even though these types of surgeries are viewed to be embarrassing by some, they are increasingly common.

G-Spot Enhancement: Insertion of collagen to the front wall for improved stimulation.

Unhooding of the Clitoris: Extraction of excess tissue around the clitoris.

Hymenoplasty: Stitching of the hymen so as to mimic its original condition.

Labiaplasty: Reshaping the labia minora to diminish its size.

Perineorrhaphy: Surgically repairing the tiny portion of skin that runs from the vagina to the anal region.

Rectocele Repair: Surgical reconstruction of the vaginal wall to bring the rectum to the right position and strengthen the vaginal tissue. It is commonly done for patients who have a pelvic organ prolapse (which can cause lower back aches during intercourse).

Cystocele Repair: Surgical reconstruction of the cystocele to lend support to your pelvic floor and restore the bladder to its proper posture.

What To Expect During the Surgery

Your surgeon will administer general anesthesia, meaning you won't be conscious for the surgery. It can take anywhere from 30 minutes to three hours, depending on the actual nature of the surgery and the conditions you are aiming to treat.

What Are the Risks of a Vaginal Rejuvenation Surgery?

Your surgeon will discuss any and all risks attached to the surgery way before D-Day. Some of the more common ones are:

  • - Infections
  • - Bleeding
  • - Tissue damage
  • - Persistent lower back pain during sex
  • - Recurring prolapse
