Vaginal Rejuvenation (Vaginaplasty) Los Angeles and Beverly Hills, CA
Vaginoplasty Los Angeles & Beverly Hills
Dr. Kenneth Hughes, Harvard-trained, board-certified plastic surgeon, provides female rejuvenation procedures including labiaplasty and vaginoplasty in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills. Some of these procedures are referred to by various names including labiaplasty, labial rejuvenation, vaginaplasty or vaginoplasty, vaginal rejuvenation, female rejuvenation, and others. These references can be extremely confusing to patients as the terminology is not consistent. The vaginoplasty refers to a surgical procedure that involves only the vagina and not the labia. The labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that involves reshaping the labia and not altering the vagina. The vaginoplasty is a surgical procedure that reduces the laxity within the vagina and provides for a tighter internal anatomy.
What is the Vaginoplasty Procedure?
The vaginoplasty procedure has become a more popular procedure in recent years as patients have become more comfortable with expressing their concerns about their vagina and any perceived looseness or laxity. This looseness is most frequently noticed after one or multiple vaginal deliveries, but there are other causes as well. Dr. Hughes performs a vaginoplasty to remedy laxity or looseness of the vagina experienced by the patient. The vaginoplasty procedure involves removing some of the tissue within the vaginal canal and then narrowing the canal to create a smaller diameter.
Other Surgeries Performed with Vaginoplasty
As vaginoplasty is usually performed to tighten that area after deliveries, many of the patients will also desire surgeries like the mommy makeover surgery. The mommy makeover procedures frequently involve a tummy tuck and breast augmentation along with other surgeries including breast lift, liposuction, and Brazilian buttlift.
Vaginoplasty Surgery Day with Dr. Hughes
It is a relatively short outpatient procedure of 1 to 2 hours aimed at tightening loose vaginal tissues with no visible scars.
Results and Expectations of Vaginoplasty Surgery
In general, patients report a tighter vaginal vault, improved experience during sex, and better self esteem. Some report reduced incontinence as well.
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 discuss in detail some of these relevant anatomic considerations during your consultation.
Recovery and Complications from Vaginoplasty
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.
What is the Cost of Vaginoplasty?
Please note that pricing for Vaginoplasty may vary based on the individual needs of the patient.
