Benefits of Vaginal Rejuvenation You Never Knew
Plastic surgery is often regarded as making noticeable aesthetic changes to one’s appearance, such as tightening the skin for a facelift or increasing bust size during breast augmentation. However, there are some aesthetic issues that go unnoticed by others but can still impact the way we feel, but most importantly our confidence.
The vagina is a sexual organ designed for pleasure but also for childbirth. As women age, this organ loses its elasticity and youthful appearance, often affecting the way women feel when intimate with their partner, leading to embarrassment. Vaginal rejuvenation aims to rectify this loss of self-esteem by tightening vaginal tissue, helping women regain their sense of attractiveness, and even boosting sexual pleasure.
Factors Affecting Vaginal Appearance
Vaginal rejuvenation is a term used to refer to reconstructive surgery of the outer lips (labia majora) and/or the inner lips of the vagina (labia minora) called Labiaplasty. During childbirth, these structures stretch and contract to accommodate the passage of an infant, but the tissue may not always bounce back to the way it looked pre-childbirth.
Additional complaints women have due to loose vaginal tissue include increased pain during sexual intercourse, loss if vaginal tightness, and reduced sensitivity.
Age also plays a significant role in female dissatisfaction with their vaginal appearance. As women get older a natural reduction of the sex hormone estrogen occurs. This hormone is responsible for maintaining vaginal tightness, moisture, and elasticity. Over time, the taut appearance of the vagina may diminish due to this fact regardless if you have had children.
Benefits of Vaginal Rejuvenation
Labiaplasty will tighten the tissue of the vagina by removing excess skin. By doing this, both you and your partner will benefit from increased stimulation that would have been lost otherwise, leading to greater sexual gratification and improved sex life. It can even help reduce pain caused by excess vaginal tissue being pulled into the vagina during intercourse.
The labia minora is normally situated behind the labia majora, but this is not always true for older women. When the labia minora protrudes forward, beyond the labia minora, it can give an aesthetically displeasing appearance. Labiaplasty can correct this, returning your vagina to its previously youthful look.
The clothing we choose to wear impacts the way we feel. Having loose vaginal tissue can lead to unwanted friction in the crotch area, making even wearing underwear an unpleasant experience. Women’s fashion is geared towards showcasing the female figure which leads to discomfort and irritation when wearing form-fitting clothing, such as bathing suits. Labiaplasty can reduce labia protrusion and reshape the vagina to mitigate this undesirable consequence.
Premature urination is a common issue facing older women, especially those who have had multiple vaginal births. Premature urination occurs when you are unable to adequately control the flow of urine, leading to unwanted leaks. Tightening the vaginal tissue, it makes it easier to hold on to urine and prevents untimely accidents.
What You Can Expect
Labiaplasty is considered an outpatient procedure with most patients leaving the hospital to recoup at home the same day. Your vaginal area will feel sore and swollen for about a week, so it is recommended to wear loose clothing during this to avoid excess pain. Using ice packs on the area as needed can also aid in relieving pain and swelling. Your doctor will also advise you to avoid using tampons, sex, and other vigorous activities for about four to six weeks post-procedure to ensure adequate healing.
