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.

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.

The hardest type of rhinoplasties for plastic surgeons to perform are cleft rhinoplasties. A major reason is that the anatomy of the nose and midface are asymmetric, therefore, you have an asymmetric nose sitting on top of an asymmetric midface. In this case, I used rib cartilage to rebuild the cartilage of the nose and fat transfer to improve asymmetries of the midface and lips. In the post-operative frontal views, you can see a straighter nose, the tip has been lifted, and the right nostril has been brought down and inwards. On profile view, you can see the dorsal hump was lowered, the tip of the nose has been lifted, rotated, and refined. The fat was placed in the cheeks and upper lip to improve the midface deficiency that is common in cleft lip patients. Posted with permission.

Plastic surgery can be dramatic or understated. This is a before and after with subtle changes to improve the proportions and aesthetics of the nose in a natural way. This patient wanted only small changes of the dorsum and tip. In the post-operative photos, you can visualize the dorsal hump has been removed and the tip has been refined, slightly rotated and projected. Posted with permission.

Couldn’t be happier for this beautiful patient and her natural before and after results. This patient is 3 months out from a deep plane or sub-SMAS facelift, neck lift, and facial fat transfer. Pay close attention to the neck, jawline, and midface or cheeks. In the post-operative views you can see a well-defined neck and jawline. The face appears less bottom heavy, there is restoration of the midface volume, and the overall facial configuration is more heart-shaped and youthful. Posted with permission.

It’s been a minute but this is a great before and after of a facial feminization case and this patient is only 6 weeks out from surgery. Pay close attention to the hairline, the forehead, orbital rims, eyebrows, nose, chin and jawline. Does this patient look like they had major surgery 6 weeks ago? Posted with permission.

Check out this interesting rhinoplasty case where I performed a combined primary rhinoplasty and sliding genioplasty. Fixing the crooked or deviated nose is very challenging for all rhinoplasty surgeons and the goal is to achieve a straighter nose because a perfectly straight nose does not exist. On the frontal view, you can see a nose that is midline and with beautiful dorsal aesthetic lines. On the profile view, you can visual a nice nasal profile with a slight break at the tip. The sliding genioplasty complements the nose and improves the overall proportions and balance of the face. A chin implant would not be able to achieve this amount of chin augmentation or chin length.

It’s never too early to starting thinking about that summer body. This patient underwent a mommy makeover or a breast reduction/lift and tummy tuck. Pay close attention to the belly button, this patient had an umbilical hernia, which made the reconstruction of her belly button even harder. Most plastic surgeons take their time trying to make the belly button look as natural as possible since the appearance of the belly button can be an obvious sign that the patient had a tummy tuck.

A facial feminization case that highlights how subtle changes can have a major impact on the balance and proportions of the face. Do the post-operative images appear softer, less angular, more refined, and more heart-shaped rather than square-shaped? Can you tell what surgeries were performed? Hint: look closely at the forehead/orbital rims, nose, chin, jawline, and neck. Posted with permission.
