Vaginal Rejuvenation (Vaginaplasty) Los Angeles, CA
Hughes Plastic Surgery in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills provides female rejuvenation procedures. Some of these procedures are referred to by various names, labiaplasty, labial rejuvenation, vaginaplasty or vaginoplasty, vaginal rejuvenation, among others. There is an increasing trend in women voicing concerns about the appearance of their genitalia and, specifically, the labia menora.
Some women experience discomfort during sex or physical activity from enlarged labia, while some women want the appearance of the labia refined. Whatever the reason, Dr. Hughes can reduce and reshape the labia to produce a more refined look to the labia in a simple outpatient procedure. The procedure takes about 1 hour to perform and the recovery is usually uneventful. Patients must refrain from intercourse, strenuous physical activity, and vigorous cleansing during the first 4 weeks after surgery to prevent suture line disruption and opening of the incisions.
The vaginal rejuvenation (vaginoplasty, vaginaplasty) procedure has become a more popular procedure in recent years as patients have become more comfortable with expressing their concerns about their vagina and perceived looseness or laxity. Dr. Hughes can provide a solution to perceived laxity or looseness of the vagina experienced by the patient. It is a relatively short outpatient procedure of 1 to 2 hours aimed at tightening loose vaginal tissues with no visible scars. Patients report improved experience during sex and better self esteem.
In general, this rejuvenation procedure is not intended to treat incontinence. Other anatomic abnormalities including rectocele may preclude performing the vaginal rejuvenation procedure. Dr. Hughes will dicuss in detail some of these relevant anatomic considerations during your consultation.
Patients must refrain from intercourse, strenuous physical activity, and vigorous cleansing during the first 6 weeks after surgery to prevent suture line disruption, opening of the incisions, and bleeding.
