In this day and age there seems to be a cosmetic procedure available for every part of the body. From breast augmentation to liposuction, and tummy tucks to facelifts, there’s a procedure for virtually everything. There’s another type of procedure that provides great results and is gaining momentum in New Orleans and across the U.S. Vaginal rejuvenation has been increasing in popularity as many women are just now learning how it can drastically improve their lives. This procedure not only improves the appearance of the vaginal area but also helps improve overall function and feel. Countless women continue to turn towards vaginal rejuvenation to reclaim their femininity and feel like an entirely new woman.
What is vaginal rejuvenation?
Vaginal rejuvenation is a term that covers various procedures to the vaginal area. These procedures can be surgical and nonsurgical. Vaginal rejuvenation is also referred to as female genital plastic surgery and female rejuvenation. Women are now able to restore their vaginal appearance and function whether it’s due to genetic conditions, dramatic weight loss, physical trauma, or childbirth. With the help of vaginal rejuvenation, there are now multiple ways to achieve this.
What is vaginal rejuvenation used for?
Vaginal rejuvenation can be used to correct multiple issues with the female anatomy. Some women are born with loose or excess skin around the labia due to genetics, while others develop issues after childbirth or significant weight loss. Loose tissue, vaginal discomfort, and painful intercourse can all be treated with vaginal rejuvenation. In addition, due to advanced technologies that allow surgeons to delicately and gently rejuvenate the vaginal area, women often find they have an improved sex life. They feel more confident, youthful, and have less issues with incontinence due to the enhanced muscle tone and strength these treatments provide. Vaginal rejuvenation is quickly becoming one of the most requested cosmetic treatments for New Orleans women.
What procedures are available?
A labiaplasty is a surgical procedure which can be performed under local anesthesia and a mild sedative. It corrects the shape and size of the labia, also known as the outer lips of the vagina. A labiaplasty can dramatically decrease the loose or excess skin of the labia majora and/or the labia minora. Patients are pleased with the results as the procedure allows them to be more confident, improve their sex life, and wear certain clothing they couldn’t wear before due to discomfort or irritation. A labiaplasty typically takes anywhere from 1-2 hours to complete and recovery varies depending on the surgical case, but most women recover within a week. Exercise and sexual activity can be resumed after 4-6 weeks in order to give the body enough time to heal.
ThermiVa is another procedure offered for vaginal rejuvenation. It is a fast, non-invasive procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen in order to revive the look and functionality of the vaginal region. Collagen’s role is to increase firmness and elasticity, while helping you maintain a youthful appearance. ThermiVa does not require any anesthesia and there is no downtime. The procedure involves a small wand that emits radio frequency and can heat various targeted areas both inside and outside of the vagina in order to help improve the overall appearance of the vagina, along with elasticity. A ThermiVa procedure can be completed in as little as 15-30 minutes. Typically multiple sessions are required to achieve desired results, and each session must be scheduled at least one month apart.
FemTouch is an outpatient, minimally invasive, non-hormonal, nonsurgical treatment for treating and improving the vaginal tissue. FemTouch uses a laser that is applied to the vaginal walls and uses a 360-degree motion to ensure that all areas are covered. The laser technology stimulates new tissue growth by triggering the production of collagen. FemTouch can help relieve some symptoms such as vaginal dryness, burning, and itching. It can also increase natural lubrication and enhanced sexual pleasure. Typically, patients will need multiple treatment sessions in order to achieve best results. It is recommended to schedule these sessions one week following a patient’s menstrual cycle. There is minimal recovery time with FemTouch. The procedure only takes a few minutes and then you’re free to resume most normal activities.
