All About Vaginoplasty
As a woman ages, many aspects of her life and appearance begin to change, including the weakening of the muscles in and around the vagina. According to Los Angeles OB/GYN Dr. David Ghozland, a popular procedure called “vaginoplasty” can help rejuvenate the vaginal region and restore sexual confidence and pleasure.
After childbirth, many women experience a loosening or slackening of the vaginal walls. Others experience less sensation or difficulty reaching orgasm, and still others may notice their vaginal lips have become stretched or extended, causing self-consciousness and embarrassment. Until recently, these troublesome symptoms were something a woman simply had to live with.
Of course, appearance is not the only concern a woman faces when her vagina is altered by childbirth. Abnormally large or elongated vaginal lips can cause irritation and discomfort during certain activities and sports, and may even compromise a woman’s self-confidence during sex. Sometimes referred to as aesthetic vaginal surgery or cosmetic vaginal surgery, vaginal rejuvenation seeks to strengthen the functional area of the vagina and firm and reshape it for a more youthful appearance. Some have dubbed it a face-lift for your vagina!
Dr. Ghozland says vaginoplasty provides numerous cosmetic and physical benefits, including:
- Improved external vaginal appearance
- Tighter vaginal opening
- More pleasurable intercourse
Part of the vaginoplasty procedure includes a technique called labiaplasty, a reconstructive surgical procedure that removes excess and/or uneven labial tissue from the vaginal lips. This is a simple yet effective gynecological procedure that improves the aesthetic appearance of woman’s vaginal area. Procedures such as this should always be performed by a GYN and surgeon, to ensure optimal results.
Vaginal rejuvenation is becoming more and more popular in the battle against aging. With an arsenal of interventions such as Botox, fillers and plastic surgery readily available to help women keep their faces youthful, it comes as little surprise that techniques are now available to help women look and feel their best from head to toe. Increasingly, patients and physicians alike have acknowledged the need for women past the childbearing years to pursue sexual youthfulness and confidence.
Thanks to Los Angeles-based physicians like Dr. Ghozland, vaginal rejuvenation through vaginoplasty is becoming a safe and successful option for helping women look and feel their youthful best.
