Between vaginal stretching during childbirth, hormonal changes due to menopause, and embarrassment over the appearance of external genitalia, women face a variety of issues that interfere with their self-esteem and having a satisfying sex life. They can benefit from women’s rejuvenation procedures performed by the surgeons at MedWeight and Lasers in Irvine, California. Please call if you have any questions about women’s rejuvenation, or use the online booking option to schedule an appointment for a consultation.
Women’s rejuvenation is a generic name that refers to numerous surgical and noninvasive procedures. These treatments improve vaginal health, modify external genitalia, and enhance your sexual experience.
Women need sufficient levels of estrogen to maintain normal vaginal health because it helps vaginal tissues stay strong, elastic, and lubricated. When your ovaries stop making estrogen at menopause, vaginal atrophy often develops.
Vaginal atrophy causes several issues that can be treated with women’s rejuvenation procedures, including:
Vaginoplasty is surgery to tighten tissues inside the vagina. You can try a noninvasive laser treatment to stimulate collagen growth and restore vaginal tone, but the results may be temporary or insufficient if you have significant vaginal atrophy.
During vaginoplasty, your surgeon at MedWeight and Lasers removes excess vaginal tissue and repairs weak or separated muscles. You need one to two weeks of recovery time after the procedure. You also can’t use tampons or have sexual intercourse for eight weeks following surgery. After your vagina heals, you should notice a better sexual experience.
If you’re embarrassed by the size or shape of your labia minora -- the folds of tissue on both sides of the vaginal opening -- your surgeon at MedWeight and Lasers can perform a labiaplasty to reduce their size and make them more symmetrical.
The surgery only takes about an hour. However, you need to avoid sex and strenuous exercise for about one month following surgery. Enlarged labia seldom recurs, so your procedure should be long lasting.
If you have excess skin covering your clitoris, your surgeon at MedWeight and Lasers can perform a clitoral hood reduction to get rid of the skin. Many women have this procedure done together with a labiaplasty.
Some women want to reduce the size of their mon pubis, which is part of the external genitalia -- the fatty hair-bearing pubic mound. Your surgeon at can reduce its size with monsplasty, or surgery to remove excess skin and fat.
G-spot injections contain a type of dermal filler, usually hyaluronic acid, that’s injected into the small, sensitive area inside the vagina known as the G-spot. The filler adds volume to the area, which enhances the spot and improves orgasm.
