I have seen an increased interest in labiaplasty to improve the appearance and comfort of the vaginal area in my cosmetic surgery practice here in Louisville, KY. In my previous blog, I discussed the basic labial reduction surgery where the large labia minora is reduced in size in a natural way. Women have been extremely happy with their results. I currently offer other procedures to improve boththe appearance and the function of the vaginal area.
What does labiaplasty do?
I have made some modifications to my labiaplasty procedure. Despite the wide reduction of the labia minora, the outer edge still can have some redundant tissue. I simply resect the redundant labia tissue at the edge, and scars are not seen. I have also made the entrance of the vagina appear more natural by maintaining the existing sling-like structure.
Some women have a large and overhanging clitoral hood. This may cause reduced sensation during sexual intercourse and may also be seen in clothes. Obviously, the clitoris is an important structure and extreme care is used, but the excess skin can be safely and effectively removed. Clitoral hood reduction surgery has helped the appearance of the vaginal area, and women also report increased sensation during sexual intercourse.
What’s the difference between labiaplasty and vaginal rejuvenation?
Labiaplasty specifically focuses on altering the size or shape of the labia, while vaginal rejuvenation is a broader term encompassing various procedures that aim to improve the appearance, function, and sensation of the entire vaginal area, which may include labiaplasty as one component.
Vaginal Rejuvenation Procedures
Vaginoplasty Surgery: Through an incision placed in the perineum behind the vagina, this procedure removes excess stretched inner vaginal lining, repairs muscles surrounding the vagina, and tightens the vaginal opening.
Fat Transfer: Aging, weight loss, and pregnancy can also lead to loss of volume in the labia majora and the mons pubis. Fullness to the labia majora and mons pubis can be restored with fat transfer. A small amount of fat is harvested from the inner thigh or abdomen and replaced into the shriveled areas.
Non Surgical Vaginal Rejuvenation
diVa® & diVaTyte™: The diVa procedure uses a hybrid fractional laser to resurface the deeper layers of the vaginal wall. This stimulates the body’s healing response, resulting in the growth of healthy, new tissue. The diVaTyte treatment uses infrared energy to improve the appearance of the labia and tighten excess skin.
CO2 Lift V: This at-home Carboxy vaginal treatment delivers CO2 to the vaginal tissues to promote circulation and encourage the creation of new collagen and elastin. Women experiencing issues with vaginal lubrication, laxity, pain during intercourse, and other common side effects of aging and childbirth, can benefit.
The Orgasm Shot: This minimally invasive treatment helps to enhance sexual pleasure and improve various aspects of female sexual function by injecting growth factors from your own blood into your clitoris and upper vagina. The treatment increases blood flow, stimulates healthy tissue growth, and aids heightened sensitivity, arousal, and lubrication.
The G-Spot Shot: Our G-Spot Shot uses a hyaluronic acid filler to increase sensitivity and blood flow to the G spot. Women who receive this treatment often report experiencing greater sexual pleasure and the ability to achieve orgasm through penetration alone.
These additional procedures to enhance the vaginal area can be performed at the same time as labiaplasty surgery under local anesthesia. The postoperative course is the same, and no additional recovery time is necessary.
