Vaginal Rejuvenation
What is a Vaginal Rejuvenation?

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.

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.

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.

Asian upper blepharoplasty or “double eyelid surgery” is a variation of an upper eyelid lift or upper blepharoplasty procedure where the upper eyelid crease is raised and more defined. Additionally, the epicanthal fold or skin that covers the inner corner of the eye can be removed depending on the patient’s goals. The goal of this surgery is not to necessarily create an occidental appearing eye but to maintain the patient’s features and create the appearance that the eye is larger and more refreshed.

6 month follow up on a #malerhinoplasty patient who wanted his dorsal hump removed, the nose straighter, and the tip less bulbous. The patient underwent a #primaryrhinoplasty where the dorsal hump was removed, the entire nose was straightened, and the tip refined. Pay close attention to the tip of the nose, in male rhinoplasty we try to avoid over rotating the nose or making the tip “upturned”. This maneuver feminizes the nose. Posted with permission.

Challenging #rhinoplasty in a thick-skinned patient with a lot of things to address. The patient wanted a reduction in the dorsal hump, a straighter nose, and a smaller nose over all. The patient underwent a dorsal hump reduction, the nose was medialized, and the tip de-projected or pulled closer to the face and refined. Still her nose that fits her ethnicity but more balanced and refined. Posted with permission.

I don’t usually post rhinoplasty results this early but she was looking so good so early that I had to share. This patient with thick skin is 6 weeks out from a primary ethnic rhinoplasty but already showing a positive impact from the surgery despite the long road to recovery. Posted with permission.

This is a great case to highlight the importance of evaluating the chin with the nose in all rhinoplasty cases. Look at the video and focus on the nose, watch it a second time and focus on the chin, and then watch it a third time and focus on the nose and chin or the whole face. For the rhinoplasty, most of the work was focused on the nasal tip. For the chin, a reduction genioplasty was performed to narrow, lower, and set the chin back. Posted with permission.
