Improve Self-Confidence and Comfort with Vaginal Rejuvenation
Vaginal rejuvenation is becoming increasingly popular among women who are unhappy with the look and feel of their vagina and labia. The procedure may involve vaginoplasty, which tightens the inner walls of the vagina and/or labiaplasty, which reshapes and resizes the labial folds.
When performed by a board certified plastic surgeon, vaginal rejuvenation can be life changing. Long Island plastic surgeon Dr. Lloyd Landsman has helped hundreds of women feel more confident with vaginal rejuvenation. Following the procedure, Dr. Landsman’s patients have reported higher self-esteem, relief from physical discomfort and enhanced sexual satisfaction.
Who Is a Candidate for Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Ideal candidate for vaginal rejuvenation are women who experience one or more of the following:
- Sagging or lax vaginal structures from childbirth, weight loss or aging
- Enlarged or misshapen labial lips
- Stress urinary incontinence
- Emotional discomfort because of the shape or size of their labia
- Physical discomfort (e.g., irritation, skin rashes, chafing when exercising)
- Embarrassment or self-consciousness when wearing tight clothing (e.g., bathing suits, leggings)
Vaginal rejuvenation is generally performed as an outpatient procedure, under general anesthesia. The procedure may combine labiaplasty and vaginoplasty, depending on the patient’s unique anatomical needs and desired outcome. Dr. Landsman will meet with each patient individually to discuss her concerns and design a personalized treatment plan.
During labiaplasty, the folds of skin around the outside of the vagina (labia majora) and/or inner folds of skin leading into the vaginal opening (labia minora) are modified. To do this, Dr. Landsman will make incisions on the labia majora and minora, which will be strategically placed so the resulting scarring is hidden in the natural folds of the skin. Excess skin and fat are removed while the remaining skin is tightened. The tissue in the labial folds is reshaped as necessary to create a proportional and more attractive appearance.
In vaginoplasty, the vaginal canal and surrounding tissues are tightened. This involves bringing the separated muscles together and removing excess skin at the back of the vagina. The incisions for vaginoplasty are made in the walls of the vagina, meaning there is no external and visible scarring.
What to Expect from Recovery
Although some of the aesthetic benefits from vaginal rejuvenation will be noticeable immediately after surgery, it may take several months for the final results to become visible. Swelling, bruising and some discomfort are normal right after the procedure. These side effects are normal and should dissipate over time. Patients should take one to two weeks off from their regular activities. Dr. Landsman will provide detailed instructions for recovery following surgery.
