With aging, every woman goes through certain stages in their lives and with these changes it is quite common for many to undergo certain changes in their bodies, which includes even their vaginal area. Menopause being one such change many women start feeling embarrassed and uncomfortable with their bodily changes. Changes in the vaginal region, however, can be brought on by many factors like pregnancy, giving birth to babies, weight flux, hormonal changes, and natural aging process. Women who are not happy with the changes time brings to their genital areas often seek vaginal rejuvenation for a better feel and appearance.

The term vaginoplasty or "vaginal rejuvenation" covers a variety of treatment procedures which can be both surgical and nonsurgical. These procedures help the vaginal canal to tighten up a well as retain the shape of the outer vulva.

Following are some of the common vaginal rejuvenation procedures categorized under surgical and non-surgical process:

Surgical procedures

  • Labiaplasty: Reducing droopiness of the inner labia minora.

  • Vaginoplasty: Correcting the vaginal droopiness by removing excess skin and reforming and tightening the vaginal wall.

  • Clitorial Hood Reduction: Removing the excess skin that surrounds the clitoral hood.

  • Labia Majoraplasty: Reducing droopiness of the inner labia minora.

  • Monsplasty: Reducing excess skin and fat in the front part of the vulva where pubic hair grows

Nonsurgical

  • Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation: Through this procedure, laser therapy is used to create tiny microlesions in the vaginal part that encourage collagen production, which tightens the vaginal tissues and wall.

  • Radiofrequency Vaginal Rejuvenation: In this nonsurgical procedure a radiofrequency device is used that provides controlled volumetric heating to help stimulate and rejuvenate vaginal tissues and muscles.

Both the nonsurgical procedures mentioned above use heating to stimulate the tissues of the vaginal area. These procedures can be performed even in an outdoor visit with the minimum incontinency issues.

So as has been discussed above there are many considerations that you must make before opting for vaginal rejuvenation. However, the best way to decide which procedure will be the best for you is by scheduling a consultation with a certified plastic surgeon who is reputed for handling such procedures. So in order to help you get going, we have listed here five questions which you should never miss to ask at your vaginal rejuvenation consultation.

  • Am I a good candidate for the surgery?

This question will start the conversation thread for discussing the concerns of your vaginal area which might create complexities during or after the surgery. With this question, you will also have an idea which treatment procedure will suit you the best. Like for some women size and length of their vulva area is the main concern, for them, vaginoplasty or labia majoraplasty will be the best option. some patients, on the other hand, have low vaginal flexibility and such cases will benefit most from nonsurgical procedures like “Radiofrequency Vaginal Rejuvenation”. You can also discuss with your consultant about your current dietary and lifestyle habits because if you are living an active and healthy lifestyle you will surely have better outcomes for your vaginal rejuvenation procedure.

  • In how much time can I expect recovery?

You must have a fair idea about the recovery time so that you can plan ahead.  For example, some surgical procedures are more invasive than non-surgical ones. So if you have an idea about the recovery time and how to prepare for that you can sort out things in a better way. With the knowledge of which treatment procedure is going to be performed on you, you can begin the planning. You can apply for leave or schedule time off, make a list of friends and family from whom you can ask for help during your recovery as well as make all the required preparations to make your recovery time much less stressful.

  • How the treatment procedures will be performed?

It is very true that the idea of going under the needles is sure to bring anxiety, but if you can discuss the details of the treatment procedure with the doctor it can ease any worry you are facing. If you ask this question to your surgeon he will surely guide you step-by-step through the treatment procedure and answer all the questions you might have about them. Vaginal rejuvenation by nonsurgical procedures usually takes from 30 minutes to one hour with no stay in the hospital. But the surgical procedures of vaginoplasty can take about one to two hours to complete with a two to five days stay in the hospital for the recovery time.

  • What are the risks associated with vaginal rejuvenation?

Modern day medical sciences have flourished a lot and with the present day advancements and developments of plastic surgery treatment procedures have been made much safer and more effective. In spite of all the advancements every medical procedure has some kind of risk associated with it and it is obvious that an invasive surgery will have more risks than the nonsurgical options. As the patient, you must know all these risks associated with your treatment procedure and have a detailed discussion with the surgeon so that you can take a well-informed and confident health decision.

  • What bodily changes and outcomes can I expect?

Whenever a new thing happens in life people eagerly wait to see the changes they bring to life. If you are considering Vaginoplasty you will face the same eagerness. But you will have to be practical and understand in how much time you may see results and what will be the longevity of these results. Depending on the type of treatment procedure that had been followed, results can be visible immediately or it might take three months or even longer to see final results. Results also depend on the

  • Genital structure of the woman

  • The treatment plan is chosen

  • Post-operative care and follow-ups

It is important to discuss all these questions in detail with your surgeon so that you have a practical expectation about your recovery time.

Though these 5 questions are very important to ask, do not limit your curiosity simply to these questions only. With Google at your service, you can do research before your visit to the doctor. Note down all the questions you want to know so that your surgeon can design a treatment plan that will help you to achieve the health goals you wished for.
