Vaginal rejuvenation procedures are increasing in popularity, and more and more women are seeking them out, whether it be for one of the reasons above or a completely different one. Either way, vaginal rejuvenation is something that women should not be embarrassed to talk to their doctor about. This procedure can definitely make a lot of positive changes to your life. Today, we are going to talk about some common questions that you might have about vaginal rejuvenation.
What is a Vaginal Rejuvenation?
A vaginal rejuvenation procedure is a surgical procedure that changes the vagina by tightening the inside of the vaginal canal. It can also change the outer appearance of the labia minora and labia majora, depending on the patient’s preferences. For example, it can often help to remove excess skin or change the shape of the vulva.
A vaginal rejuvenation is usually considered a cosmetic surgery, but it can have plenty of health benefits, as well. One of the reasons women opt for this procedure is to help reduce the pain felt during sex. This procedure often eliminates the pain, allowing women to focus more on their satisfaction during intimacy. Urinary incontinence is also a reason that many women look to vaginal rejuvenation as a way to solve their concerns.
Why Do Women Want a Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Women may choose to go for vaginal rejuvenation for a wide variety of reasons. Some of those reasons include the following:
Losing elasticity in the vaginal muscles is a normal part of aging. It often occurs with childbirth, but other lifestyle choices and genetics can also affect this. Vaginal rejuvenation focuses on this, often correcting it and tightening the vaginal canal.
Changes in the Mons Pubis
The mons pubis or fleshy area that sits on top of the pubic bone above the vulva can often be too prominent in some women, leading to a lack of confidence when it comes to wearing certain clothing, exercising, etc. It can also be saggy, and this can be addressed during vaginal rejuvenation.
Due to weakened muscles, urinary leakage can often occur, especially in women who have given birth. Thanks to vaginal rejuvenation, you may see a decrease in the amount of leakage.
Labia Majora/Minora Issues
Issues involving the labia minora, Majora, or both, can be a cause for concern for some women. Labia that are too long or asymmetrical can cause issues with confidence and reduced sensation during intercourse.
Large Clitoral Hood
An enlarged clitoral hood is another reason women look to vaginal rejuvenation.
Are the Results Permanent?
The results from a vaginal rejuvenation procedure are permanent. While it may not stay exactly the same, especially as aging occurs, it will, for the most part, keep the same shape and tightness as it was right after the procedure.
Is Vaginal Rejuvenation Risky?
When it comes to vaginal rejuvenation, you can rest assured that the procedure is not high-risk. That being said, it is still a medical procedure, so it is vital to understand that there is still going to be some risk, but the good news is that it is relatively safe – and many women agree that the results that they have seen from the procedure make it worth it.
If you are concerned about the use f anesthesia, many times, the procedure can be performed with the use of local anesthesia, although most patients do prefer to use it generally.
Does Vaginal Rejuvenation Cost a Lot?
It may surprise you how affordable a vaginal rejuvenation procedure is. Many patients tend to pay under $10,000 for the whole procedure, including aftercare.
What is the Recovery Like?
Vaginal rejuvenation is not a complicated procedure, and thus, recovery is not very lengthy or difficult in most cases. You can expect some pain and cramping, and often bleeding, but nothing more complicated than that. If you experience symptoms outside of that, you should speak to your physician.
