What Are the Different Types of Vaginal Rejuvenation Procedures?
The vagina is a unique part of the body – and everyone is different. There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to the vagina – they are all different sizes and shapes. The same can be said about procedures to alter the labia and vagina. When it comes to cosmetic gynecology, many different procedures are available to meet all of your needs. In fact, there are several that are often even lumped together under a single umbrella term known as vaginal rejuvenation. However, it is important to note that all of these procedures have their own names and purposes, and not all vaginal rejuvenation procedures are the same.
What is Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Vaginal rejuvenation is an umbrella term that covers quite a few vaginal procedures. These procedures have been invented in order to change the size, shape, and appearance of the vagina, labia majora, labia minora, and even the clitoris itself. Depending on your individual needs and desires, some procedures may seem right for you, while others may not be something you are looking for. As stated above, everyone is different, and every woman has different needs and desires.
Vaginal rejuvenation is, in a nutshell, a medical term used when discussing changing the vagina or making it “new” again. It is a term used when discussing changing something about the vagina to set back the clock, make it more youthful, or change something that you are not fond of.
The most popular vaginal rejuvenation procedure is the vaginoplasty. This procedure is the first one that will usually come to mind when the idea of vaginal rejuvenation comes up. However, other procedures are popular, as well. Let’s take a look at some of the procedures that fall under the umbrella of vaginal rejuvenation.
A vaginoplasty is a procedure that helps to improve muscle tone and elasticity in the vagina. Since the vagina can change as a woman ages, after childbirth, or because of weight loss, hormones, or medications, it might become evident that the vagina has “loosened” or become lax. A vaginoplasty can help to alter the muscles and tissue in the vagina, as well as reduce the size of the vaginal canal to help make it feel “tighter.” This procedure can also help treat urinary incontinence, which can become a problem for women who have given birth.
A labiaplasty is a popular procedure that alters the appearance of the labia. This procedure can be performed on the labia majora, the labia minora, or both, depending on the desires of the individual who is seeking out the procedure. A labiaplasty reshapes the labia as well as alters the size. It is a great choice for those who are looking to reduce the size of the labia and can even help to reduce any concerns with symmetry.
Clitoral Hood Reduction
A popular procedure that is often paired with vaginoplasty or labiaplasty is the clitoral hood reduction. A clitoral hood reduction reduces the size of the clitoral hood and can help make the clitoris more sensitive to stimulation during sex. This procedure often leads to increased sexual satisfaction and better orgasms among those who undergo it.
ThermiVa is a laser procedure that is known as “Non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation.” ThermiVa may be a better choice for those who are only experiencing a mild case of vaginal laxity or do not wish to undergo a surgical procedure, as is common with a traditional vaginoplasty. This treatment is highly effective when it comes to helping tighten the vaginal walls and can also help reduce urinary incontinence.
Why is Vaginal Rejuvenation Popular?
Vaginal rejuvenation procedures are popular among women who are not happy with their vagina, labia, or clitoral hood. Women seek out these procedures due to a lack of satisfaction during sexual intimacy, as well as being unhappy with the overall appearance of the labia. These procedures can work to correct both of these concerns and have women feeling more comfortable and confident with their own bodies.
