Factors such as childbirth, weight changes, and certain medical conditions can lead to weakening and stretching vaginal muscles and surrounding tissues. This can result in discomfort and loss of self-confidence. Women opt for vaginal rejuvenation surgery for many personal reasons. This transformative procedure can:
If desired, our doctors can combine surgical vaginal rejuvenation with other procedures, such as cosmetic labiaplasty or a hysterectomy. This allows for a single surgery and recovery period. Alternatively, for those preferring a non-surgical option, we offer FemiLift™ non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatments.
Certain pelvic disorders like pelvic organ prolapse, often resulting from childbirth, prior surgery, or menopause, can lead to vaginal laxity. The surgical correction of this condition, which often includes vaginal rejuvenation and tightening, is often covered by medical insurance. However, when vaginal rejuvenation is pursued without a diagnosis of symptomatic prolapse, the surgery is typically considered elective and might not be covered.
Our experts perform vaginal rejuvenation as an outpatient procedure in the fully accredited Pearl SurgiCenter. Under the care of a certified anesthesia provider, the patient is placed under general anesthesia. The procedure is performed through an incision in the perineum. This enables the surgeon to tighten not only the vaginal and perineum openings but also the deep underlying muscles and supporting tissues. Unlike other doctors who tighten the vaginal opening superficially and repair the perineum, our technique addresses the deep vaginal muscles and supporting structures, including correction of the rectocele (hernia of the rectum into the vagina). The procedure typically takes 1 to 2 hours.
The extent of repair required may influence the recovery process, with some patients experiencing limited post-procedure swelling and discomfort. Typically, patients can return to work within 2 weeks, albeit with activity restrictions in place for 6 to 12 weeks. With vaginoplasty, you can rediscover a more comfortable and confident you.
