Vaginal Rejuvenation

For many women, the aftereffects of childbirth, weight changes, and the natural aging process leave the vagina and surrounding tissues stretched, torn, and lacking elasticity. Dr. Chet Mays, a caring, experienced board-certified plastic surgeon, offers vaginoplasty, often called vaginal rejuvenation, in Louisville, KY, to help women feel more comfortable and confident by repairing this highly sensitive area.

Women considering vaginal rejuvenation travel from Lexington and throughout Kentucky to CaloAesthetics® Plastic Surgery Center. Request a consultation using our online form to meet with Dr. Mays or call our office at (502) 899-9979 to schedule an appointment.

Improvements

Vaginoplasty is often a functional or reconstructive surgery Dr. Mays performs to address the effects of childbirth and aging on the vagina and surrounding tissues. The surgery may include any of the following:

  • Repairing stretched and separated vaginal muscles
  • Tightening and narrowing the vaginal opening and canal
  • Removing excess lax vaginal lining
  • Renewing self-confidence
  • Enhancing sensation and sexual satisfaction for the patient and her partner

Even though it typically isn’t performed to address the vagina’s external appearance, vaginoplasty may reduce the visibility of protruding tissue or a wide opening. Dr. Mays may also perform labiaplasty to reduce physical discomfort and self-consciousness from stretched and misshapen labia.

Internal vaginal changes after pregnancy can also lead to embarrassing problems such as stress incontinence. While vaginoplasty can help, the non-surgical diVa® procedure may be recommended instead.

About the Vaginoplasty Procedure

Dr. Mays usually performs vaginoplasty as an outpatient procedure with the patient under twilight or general anesthesia in our AAAASF–approved operating rooms. Using an incision placed in the perineum behind the vagina, Dr. Mays removes excess stretched inner lining, repairs muscles surrounding the vagina, and tightens the vaginal opening. The procedure takes about 1 to 2 hours to complete depending on the complexity of the repairs.

What to Expect During Recovery

After vaginal rejuvenation surgery, patients may experience swelling and discomfort that can be controlled with over-the-counter or prescription pain medication. Within a few days, most patients can resume normal daily activities.

Return to Work

Patients are usually ready to return to work within 1 to 2 weeks of surgery. The use of tampons and physical activities such as strenuous exercise, sexual intercourse, and heavy lifting will be restricted for 6 to 12 weeks as directed by Dr. Mays.

Results

Once completely healed, patients enjoy increased comfort and sensitivity during intercourse and feel more confident about the way they look.

Vaginoplasty

Unlike labiaplasty, vaginoplasty is often a functional or reconstructive procedure that’s designed to reduce the size of the vaginal canal. Even though it typically isn’t done to treat the vagina’s external appearance, vaginoplasty may reduce the visibility of protruding tissue or a wide opening.

Vaginal muscles often lose strength and tightness because of childbirth and age, diminishing sensation and reducing the pleasure experienced during intimate sexual contact for both partners. Internal vaginal changes after pregnancy can also lead to embarrassing problems such as stress incontinence. While surgical vaginoplasty is a common solution to these problems, our surgeons offer the non-surgical diVa and diVaTyte™ procedures instead.

Non-Surgical Vaginal Rejuvenation

The increasing interest in vaginal rejuvenation has led to the introduction of safe and effective non-surgical treatments to tighten both the labia and the vagina.

diVa® & diVaTyte™

Childbirth and aging can change both the sensitivity and the appearance of the vagina. But even though women address age-related changes to their faces and other areas of the body, they are less likely to think about reversing aging’s effects on the vagina. That trend is gradually changing as the effectiveness of both surgical and nonsurgical treatments become more well-known.

At CaloSpa, laser vaginal rejuvenation at our Louisville and Lexington med spas is performed using diVa and diVaTyte. diVa uses a hybrid fractional laser to resurface the deeper layers of the vaginal wall. During a treatment, which lasts about 3 to 5 minutes, the provider inserts the handpiece into the vaginal canal, and the laser energy creates microchannels in the tissue. This stimulates the body’s healing response, resulting in the growth of healthy, new tissue.

Patients can resume their normal daily activities following the treatment, but we recommend avoiding sexual intercourse for 48 hours after the procedure.

Women considering labiaplasty may opt instead for diVaTyte, another nonsurgical procedure that uses infrared energy. The treatment is ideal for women who:

  • are self-conscious about the appearance of their labia
  • want to reduce excess skin that causes irritation, rubbing, or chafing during exercise, such as running or cycling
  • experience painful intercourse because of labial friction or movement

The in-office procedure can be completed in about 10 minutes. Patients don’t experience any discomfort and they can resume their normal activities immediately following the treatment.
