Female genital procedures are sometimes referred to as vaginal rejuvenation and consist of a variety of procedures such as labiaplasty, clitoral hood reduction, labia majoraplasty, monsplasty and vaginoplasty.*1 Genital rejuvenation procedures are performed to address cosmetic and health-related problems such as sagging and excess skin, large and misshapen labia, loss of vaginal tone which causes painful sexual intercourse, vaginal dryness, and urinary leakage.Learn More
If you are displeased with the appearance of your inner or outer labia, and if you are reading this, you are probably a candidate!
The outcomes of female genital rejuvenation can be analyzed in three main categories: aesthetical, health-related, and psychological.
Through labiaplasty, you will get rid of droopy and loose appearance of your labia. It restores and enhances the appearance of your vaginal area and it improves the overall appearance of your genitalia. The effects of childbearing and aging such as stretched, torn and distorted appearance of labia will be eliminated, and you will have the aesthetic appearance that you desire. Through monsplasty, you can get rid of the bulging of the mons. And through clitoral hood reduction you can achieve a more balanced appearance.
The discomfort you have experienced due to sagging, largeness, misshapenness, or asymmetry will be eliminated thanks to labiaplasty. If you experience urinary incontinence, itching and irritation, pain or discomfort when having intercourse, riding a bike, or wearing certain types of clothes, these problems will also be eliminated. You can enjoy increased comfort during sports. You will feel more comfortable after the procedure.
The psychological outcomes of the procedure are as important as the physical ones. For most people, sagging or deformed appearance of the vaginal area is a serious concern. If you are bothered with the appearance of your vagina, or experience discomfort because of the problems around your vagina when performing some activities, you may experience psychological distress and this situation negatively affects your self-confidence and social life.
Patients are generally able to return to work within 3 to 5 days, but you may need to take a week from work. You may experience mild swelling and bruising. You may feel discomfort at the side of your incisions which can be easily controlled with pain medication. You can apply cold packs or compress between your underpants and elastic garment which may help to ease swelling and discomfort in the first 48 hours. Most of this swelling should subside within the initial week following your procedure.
Drains may be removed if they had been placed. It is important that you do not wear tight-fitting underwear. Especially you should avoid nylon or synthetic fibre underwear. You should wear loose clothes in the first few weeks following your surgery in order to assist your comfort and help your body to heal.
After the surgery, you should keep the area clean and dry. You can bathe in lukewarm to warm water and use mild soaps. It is recommended that you gently towel the vaginal area with a clean towel after bathing. You may use a hair dryer on the lowest heat to further dry that area after the surgery.
You may resume mild exercise within 2 to 3 weeks. It is recommended that you should refrain from strenuous exercise for 6 weeks after the surgery.
You should avoid sexual intercourse for at least 4 weeks. When the time has passed, you may engage in sexual intercourse if it feels comfortable to you. You can resume wearing tampons after 4 to 6 weeks according to your level of healing.
Your results will be long-lasting. Although labial tissues may begin to sag because of the natural aging process, this will be mild in comparison to what patients would have experienced without the procedure. Keep in mind that significant weight gain or pregnancy can alter the results.
