“Vaginal rejuvenation” is generally a term used for different procedures that address vaginal changes that occur after childbirth, aging, weight loss, and trauma. Those procedures include clitoral hood reduction, labiaplasty, vaginoplasty, perineoplasty, CO2 laser vaginal/vulva treatment (MonaLisa Touch), PRP to “G spot” and clitoris.
Clitoral hood reduction or clitoropexy
Surgical correction of excess skin over the clitoris (clitoral hood.) Some women are bothered by the size of the clitoral hood over the clitoris head (glans). The hood may protrude too much causing the woman to be self-conscious or irritated. She may feel that the protruding hood and clitoris cause a bulge in her clothing. This in-office procedure that removes extra tissue is done under local anesthesia.
Surgical correction of a widened vaginal canal caused most often by childbirth. Symptoms include decreased sensation and stimulation during intercourse, loose vagina and minimal muscle tone, gaping vaginal opening unpleasing in appearance, partner slipping out during intercourse, tampons falling out, vagina producing embarrassing “gas-like” sounds during intercourse or a “popping” noise while walking. This in-office procedure that tightens the vaginal cavity is done under local anesthesia with a pudendal block.
Surgical correction of the perineum which is the area located between the vagina and the anus. It provides support to the pelvic floor and also contributes to enhanced pleasure during sexual intercourse. A perineoplasty can benefit women who had an episiotomy or vaginal laceration during childbirth. This can lead to loosening of the skin and the sensation of a wide vagina. This can result in decreased sexual satisfaction for both the patient and their partner. Not only does the procedure help women who have widened vaginal openings, it can be used in women who have small vaginal openings. This occurs in women that have had over-correction of a vaginal tear/episiotomy repair at the time of delivery, or they were born with a narrow opening, or they have a medical condition called lichen sclerosis which narrows the opening. In these patients a perineoplasty is performed to widen the vaginal opening to allow for less pain with intercourse. This in-office procedure that tightens the vaginal cavity is done under local anesthesia with a pudendal block.
