What Is Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Today, Cosmetic Surgery is still considered controversial and is under public scrutiny in some cultures. Vaginal Rejuvenation is even more sensitive to the public eye. However, women all over the world evidently are interested in the benefits of Aesthetic Vaginal Surgery as it is one of the most frequently Goggled topic!
Vaginal Rejuvenation is also commonly referred to as Female Genital Plastic Surgery or Aesthetic Vaginal Surgery. Vaginal Rejuvenation has become increasingly popular for women who desire recontouring after childbirth, have experienced significant weight loss, are aging or have sustained injury to genital structures. Whichever particular procedure a patient chooses, it is a proven fact that Vaginal Rejuvenation procedures offer increased self-confidence and comfort as a result.
Many women who choose to undergo Vaginal Rejuvenation frequently select a combination of Aesthetic Vaginal Procedures. These procedures include:
Increasingly popular, more and more women are seeking Hymenoplasty, or reconstruction of the hymen, for a variety of reasons. Hymenoplasty is actually the surgical repair of the hymen, a membrane that partially closes the opening of the vagina.
In many cultures and religions, an intact hymen is traditionally taken to indicate a mark of virginity. Due to reasons other than intercourse, such as vigorous exercise or tampon insertion, the hymen becomes torn or ruptured. Under such circumstances, many women want their hymen reconstructed, which can be accomplished through a Hymenoplasty.
The vulva is the gateway to the uterus and a double layer of protection is provided by the folds of the outer and inner labia. For many women who dislike the appearance of their labia, or who experience discomfort because of excessive labia tissue, this procedure can improve the way they feel about their bodies, their physical comfort, and emotional comfort with sex. The Labiaplasty procedure is simple and is performed to reduce the size of labia , reducing their outward appearance whilst correct misshapenness or irregularities.
The procedure normally takes 60-90 minutes.
Modern clothing styles are more revealing and women are becoming more conscious of how their pubic area, or mons, appears through their garments. This is causing many women to seek treatment to reduce its size.
Liposuction of the Mons Pubis is a relatively straightforward procedure that can produce some dramatic results. The procedure normally takes 60 minutes.
Vaginoplasty, also known as vaginal rejuvenation, is not an aesthetic procedure – it is a functional procedure involving the tightening of the vagina making the entrance to the vagina smaller, as well as tightening areas of the vagina that have no muscles associated with it.
Excess vaginal lining is removed, and muscles are tightened. As a result, you will have tightened vaginal muscles, which may enhance feelings of sexual gratification, and allow you and your partner to enjoy more pleasure during sexual intercourse.
The procedure normally takes 60-90 minutes.
General anesthesia is commonly used during these procedures. For your safety during the surgery, various monitors will be used to check your heart, blood pressure, pulse and the amount of oxygen circulating in your blood. Your surgeon will follow the surgical plan discussed with you before surgery.
The incisions may be completely concealed in the most inconspicuous locations possible.
A sterile dressing and a compression garment will be applied and drains may be placed when necessary.
