Why Get Vaginal Rejuvenation?
With the flood of social media and celebrities talking openly about… well, everything… you might be wondering if your vagina is up to snuff.
The reality is, there’s no right or wrong way your vagina should look or feel. Every body is different.
However, if you’re feeling challenged by the appearance or functioning of your genital area, then vaginal rejuvenation could be an option for you.
What Is Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Vaginal rejuvenation isn’t one specific procedure. It’s an umbrella term that covers a number of options. And as technology advances the options continue to grow.
Many therapies for vaginal rejuvenation now include devices such as lasers, radio frequency, and ultrasound.
But for our purposes, we’ll look at three of the most frequently performed procedures here.
The labia consists of both inner lips (labia minora) and outer lips (labia majora). For women who wish to change the size and shape of the inner lips of the vagina, there is labiaplasty. Over the years, several techniques have evolved for this surgery.
The trim procedure is the original technique and still the most widely used. This procedure addresses excess skin of labia minora which throws it out of symmetry with the labia majora. Through labiaplasty, the skin is removed and sutured to provide symmetry.
In the wedge procedure, the layer tissue beneath the mucus membrane (known as the submucosa) is left intact and only a partial wedge is removed from the thickest part of the labia minora. This preserves the wrinkled edges of the vagina and renders a more natural appearance.
There are, of course, other techniques for labiaplasty and each has its pros and cons.
The objective of vaginoplasty is to repair or construct a vagina, or to change the look of a vagina.
There are a number of situations that can damage or affect the development of the vagina. These include childbirth defects, congenital abnormalities, trauma, or radiation and excision of the vagina for cancer (or other disease) treatment.
A vaginoplasty may also be used for those seeking a vaginal canal during gender transformation. (A vulvoplasty, by contrast, is also a gender-affirming surgery that bypasses the canal option and creates only the parts of a vulva from existing tissue associated with being designated male at birth.)
Which vaginoplasty procedure is utilized depends on the goals or medical needs of the patient. It may include reconstruction or even recreation of the vagina through surgical intervention.
- Clitoral Hood Reduction
When the two sides of the labia minora come together to surround the vaginal opening, they create a small bulge. This is the clitoris. The clitoris has thousands of sensory nerve endings and plays a necessary role in achieving a clitoral orgasm.
The foreskin that covers the clitoris is known as the clitoral hood. It protects the highly sensitive clitoris from exposure to friction. In some women, the clitoral hood has excess tissue that may impede sexual function. The recommended vaginal rejuvenation technique is this case would be a clitoral hood reduction.
Why Choose Vaginal Rejuvenation?
There are many reasons a patient may be curious about vaginal rejuvenation. Some are seeking an enhanced sexual response. Others are motivated by purely cosmetic reasons or have troubles with vaginal dryness, increased incontinence, and looseness.
It honestly doesn’t matter.
