Vaginal Rejuvenation
What is a Vaginal Rejuvenation?

 

Vaginal Rejuvenation Chicago

The term vaginal rejuvenation is an umbrella term that covers several different plastic surgery procedures, each with the goal of rejuvenating or otherwise improving upon aspects of the female genitalia for either aesthetic or functional purposes, or in some cases, both.

Vaginal rejuvenation may be performed to reduce the size or length of the labia, reduce excess folds of the clitoral hood, remove excess fatty tissue or skin in the upper part of the vagina, or to tighten the tissue and muscles.

Vaginal Rejuvenation

AM I A CANDIDATE FOR VAGINAL REJUVENATION?

If any of the following issues apply to you, you may be a candidate for one or more vaginal rejuvenation procedures:

  • Pain or discomfort from twisting or tugging of the labia during activity
  • Irritation or pain during intercourse
  • Asymmetrical or disproportionately balanced folds
  • Self-consciousness of the appearance of your vagina
  • Excess skin or fat in the mons (the upper part of the vulva)
  • Significant laxity after childbirth

Ideal candidates for vaginal rejuvenation should be in generally good physical health, non-smokers, and without any medical conditions that may impede the healing process. Women who plan on having children in the future should ideally wait to have vaginal rejuvenation performed.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR CONSULTATION

Your plastic surgeon will recommend treatment options and review your full medical history. Be prepared to discuss previous surgeries, allergies, and any current medications you may be taking. You and your plastic surgeon will discuss any and all aspects of the procedure, through recovery, as well as any potential risks associated with vaginal rejuvenation. If you have any questions about any of these factors, the consultation is the best time to ask.

HOW IS VAGINAL REJUVENATION PERFORMED?

The process of vaginal rejuvenation varies greatly depending on your aesthetic goals. To begin, patients are sedated, and a local or general anesthetic is administered to ensure comfort during the procedure. Then, your surgeon will make the necessary corrections, which may include removing excess fat, trimming excess skin, transferring fat, or tightening and reshaping tissue.

If incisions are required to perform the procedure, your plastic surgeon will attempt to conceal them within the natural creases and contours of the body whenever possible. The incisions are usually closed with absorbable sutures.

RECOVERY AFTER VAGINAL REJUVENATION

Swelling and bruising at the surgical site is normal after vaginal rejuvenation. The aesthetic results will be fully visible once swelling is completely gone, which can take from six to twelve weeks, depending on the procedure. Patients should avoid rigorous physical activity and intercourse until they are cleared by their plastic surgeon to resume normal level of activity, which can range from two to six weeks after surgery.

Your plastic surgeon will issue specific instructions for post-surgical care. Be sure to follow these instructions precisely to mitigate any potential risks associated with vaginal rejuvenation.

POTENTIAL RISKS OF VAGINAL REJUVENATION

Since vaginal rejuvenation covers a variety of procedures, it is important to speak with your plastic surgeon during your consultation about any potential complications associated with a specific procedure. In general, the risks associated with vaginal rejuvenation may include:

  • Bleeding
  • Hematoma (blood clot)
  • Infection
  • Unfavorable scarring
  • Changes in skin sensation
  • Skin discoloration
  • Pain during intercourse

The Plastic Surgery Clinic of Chicago takes every precaution to minimize these risks whenever possible by employing the safest and most innovative techniques. You can further reduce the chance of complications by following all instructions given by your plastic surgeon.

WHAT DOES VAGINAL REJUVENATION COST?

Due to the varied and highly personalized nature of vaginal rejuvenation, it is difficult to provide an average cost associated with this procedure. During your consultation, your plastic surgeon will discuss the cost, as well as payment options, with you. Vaginal rejuvenation is generally considered a cosmetic procedure, so it is not often covered by medical insurance. However, if the issue is a functional one, you should speak to your health insurance provider before your consultation to see if any of the expense will be covered.

Before and After Photos
25-35 yo female who was interested in improving the aesthetics of her vagina and labia minora. The patient was most concerned with the excess skin of the labia minora and wanted improvement in the overall size, shape, and symmetry of the anatomy of the vagina. The patient underwent a labiaplasty edge trim technique and is 3 months post-operative. In the pre-operative photos you can see the excess labia minora and in the post-operative photos the excess labial minora has been contoured. This has created a more aesthetic and symmetric vaginal anatomy for the patient.

Male patient in his late 60’s who was able to turn back the clock after undergoing a #facelift, #neck lift, #blepharoplasty, and #fattransfer. Pay close attention to the “bags” underneath the eyes, the jawline, and neck. The scars have healed nicely and are inconspicuous even with short hair. In the post-operative photos, the patient has maintained his natural facial features and anatomy, but just looks like a more youthful version of himself. Posted with permission.

#Primaryrhinoplasty to fix the dorsal hump, droopy tip, and crooked nose. In the post-operative photos, the patient has a nice dorsal profile on side view, the tip has been lifted, and the nose is straight. To evaluate how straight the nose is, look at the dorsal aesthetic lines on bird’s eye view and follow the two light reflexes along the dorsum. Posted with permission.

Relatively small surgeries can yield big changes. This patient wanted to improve the contour of her chin and the overall profile of her face. The patient’s lower 1/3 of the face and chin were short and set back. Additionally, the patient had asymmetries of the chin and jawline that she wanted improved. The patient underwent a #slidinggenioplasty to achieve these goals where the chin was cut and mobilized forward and downward. In the post-operative photos, you can see a more aesthetic and balanced facial profile. The advantages of a #genioplasty over a #chinimplant are that the chin can be moved in numerous planes, the advancement can be more significant, and asymmetries can be addressed.

This patient had a bilateral constricted ear deformity where the top portion of the ear folds over the rest of the ear. In this deformity, the ear appears shorter in height and there are abnormalities of the outer and inner folds of the ear. In the postoperative photos you can visualize the ear is longer in height, the helical rim or outer portion of the ear is lifted up and the antihelical fold or inner portion of the ear is more defined.

Challenging #breastaugmentation case where the patient had asymmetries of the breasts in terms of size, shape, and position on the chest. The patient underwent a breast augmentation with #gelimplants with a larger size in the left breast to balance the size difference. The left breast fold was also lowered to match the fold level of the right. Posted with permission.

Plastic surgery can sometimes be subtle or dramatic. In this case, this patient’s outcome was life altering after a lipoabdominoplasty or tummy tuck. The patient can now do all of the things in life that she was limited in doing due to her body habitus. Posted with permission.

Plastic surgeons pioneered microsurgery and free flaps nearly 50 years ago. The surgery involves harvesting tissue with its arteries and veins and transplanting it to another part of the body. The arteries and veins are re-attached at the new site using a microscope and sutures smaller than human hair. In this case, this patient was in a bad car accident where he had an open wound of the leg with exposed and fractured bone. Before microsurgery was invented, many of these patients would have their limb amputated. To salvage his leg, I took a muscle from his thigh and transplanted it to the lower leg to cover the exposed bone after Ortho fixed the broken bone. As you can see in the video, he is on his way to a full recovery and can walk now. After more physical therapy, he will be able to walk without a walker. Posted with permission.

A former collegiate wrestler who developed moderate cauliflower ear of the left that resulted in a thick and more protruding ear. A cauliflower ear forms after blunt trauma to the ear where a blood clot develops. If left untreated, the ear cartilage becomes thick and hard, which makes these cases difficult to treat. After surgery, the patient now reports feeling more confident when he looks in the mirror and when he is communicating with people in social settings. Posted with permission.

Maintaining masculinity and core features without major alterations were the plan for this patient who underwent a #revisionrhinoplasty. The patient reports that when people see him now after surgery, the comments he receives are along the lines of “you look well rested or more handsome” and not “did you have a rhinoplasty or you look completely different”. Exactly what we like to hear. Posted with permission.

Midterm follow-up on this lovely #rhinoplasty patient who wanted nasal surgery to improve her nasal breathing but also to improve the aesthetics of the nose. Fixing the crooked nose is a challenge in rhinoplasty and on the bird’s eye view, you can visualize improvement in the dorsal aesthetic lines. Dorsal aesthetic lines are two curvilinear light reflex lines that travel from the inner eyebrow to the tip of the nose on frontal view. On profile view you can see a nice profile with the dorsal hump removed. Posted with permission.

Happy for this mother of 2 who wanted to improve the contour and aesthetics of her abdomen and waist with an #abdominoplasty or #tummy tuck. After children, women can experience rectus diastasis or separation of the abdominal muscles as the uterus expands. During a tummy tuck, plastic surgeons will address this separation by stitching the muscles back together. In the post-operative photos you can visualize the muscles re-positioned more centrally. Additionally, we will perform liposuction, remove excess abdominal skin and re-set the belly button. Posted with permission.
