Who Is a Good Candidate for Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Vaginal rejuvenation, also commonly referred to as “genital plastic surgery” or “aesthetic vaginal surgery,” is one of the most common female genital procedures.
Women desire this type of surgery primarily when they want to improve or boost sexual gratification. This procedure can also successfully treat stress urinary incontinence, or the involuntary loss of urine when stress is placed on the bladder while laughing, sneezing, coughing or exercising.
The Basics of Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation
Female genital plastic surgery involves the tightening of the vagina, combined with labiaplasty or vulvaplasty, or the reshaping of the vulva or labia. This type of plastic surgery is growing in popularity, particularly among women who would like to reshape their vaginas after different events, including: childbirth, the loss of a significant amount of weight, a vaginal injury, or simple aging.
Who Are the Best Candidates for Vaginal Rejuvenation
This type of surgery is not for everyone; the best candidates for vaginal rejuvenation include:
- Women who have had the structures of their vagina stretched or otherwise altered as a result of childbirth and/or aging.
- Women who experience soreness or pain when they partake in sexual activity, when they ride a bike, or when they go horseback riding.
- Women who experience reduced sensation during vaginal intercourse as a result of multiple vaginal deliveries.
Are You a Candidate for Vaginal Rejuvenation?
You might be a candidate for vaginal rejuvenation if:
- The structures of your vagina sag as a result of pregnancy and childbirth, weight loss, and/or aging.
- You experience discomfort in your vagina.
- You suffer from stress urinary incontinence.
- You would like to improve the look of your labia and vulva.
The Pros and Cons of Vaginal Reconstruction Surgery
If you are a good candidate for laser vaginal rejuvenation, certain advantages and disadvantages are associated with vaginal reconstruction surgery. All these factors should be taken into consideration before making the decision to have this surgery.
Women who are self-conscious about their vaginas as a result of the aforementioned situations can experience increased self-confidence thanks to vaginal rejuvenation. This type of surgery can also restore comfort to the vagina. Additionally, many women experience increased sexual gratification after vaginal plastic surgery. Since this procedure tightens and reshapes the vagina, it can make the act of sex much more pleasurable. This procedure will tighten your vagina to the way it was when you were young and prior to pregnancy.
A chance exists that an injury to the bladder, a hemorrhage or an infection may occur as a result of vaginal reconstruction surgery. Because the structure of the vagina will be altered, both you and your partner may need to take a little time to get adjusted to the new sensations that result from tightened vaginal walls. Additionally, you and your partner may need to experiment to find the positions that are the most comfortable and pleasurable for you during intercourse.
