Wendy Rigby's report on Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation - KENS Eyewitness News
A San Antonio doctor is one of the first to offer a new kind of plastic surgery for women. It's a laser procedure designed to help with incontinence and to increase a woman's sexual pleasure.
Childbirth is one of the biggest reasons women seek this kind of a fix, she said. A woman who has vaginally delivered a big baby, had a forceps delivery or several children through her life can have less elasticity, cutting down on sexual sensation, the doctor explained.
In about an hour under general anesthesia, the doctor can adjust the sagging bladder and then trim and tighten the area using the laser. There's very little blood loss and a speedy recovery after this outpatient procedure.
Doctors say both partners will notice the difference.
People say they want to look and feel as young as possible and doctors who perform this procedure say they're just extending that philosophy to all parts of the body.
