Vaginal Rejuvenation-Vaginoplasty Questions
Vaginal rejuvenation, vaginoplasty, is commonly referred to as vaginal tightening. Why would a woman want vaginal rejuvenation? Many want to return their vagina to its pre-childbirth condition.
For some women, the vaginal tightening is meant to enhance sexual gratification, while for others it is to regain control of their body. One vaginoplasty patient described it this way:
"After two children, I had serious incontinence problems. My vagina had that 'flippy-floppy' feeling. I could barely feel anything. Sex was just not the same."
Here, we will address some of the most frequently asked questions the Vaginal Rejuvenation and Cosmetic Gynecology Center of San Antonio receives about Vaginal Rejuvenation (aka Vaginoplasty).
Questions About Labiaplasty
Labiaplasty, sometimes spelled labioplasty, refers to reconstructive surgery performed on the labia minora, the inner lips of the vagina. Women who are interested in labiaplasty complain of pain, discomfort or irritation during physical activity, sexual intercourse, or wearing certain types of clothing as a result of enlarged labia.
Some women are also interested in labia majora reduction to get rid of the excessive fatty deposits in the outer vaginal lips. (Watch labiaplasty videos)
