What is Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Vaginal rejuvenation is a broad term that describes various vaginal corrective procedures. Due to causes ranging from childbirth and aging to genetics, your vagina and its surrounding tissues may lose elasticity and strength. This leads to several issues like incontinence (leaking urine), vaginal dryness, sagging skin and lack of sexual pleasure. Many women or people assigned female at birth (AFAB) look to vaginal rejuvenation to improve these conditions and restore the look and function of their vagina. There are surgical and nonsurgical options for vaginal rejuvenation. It is a comfortable and safe treatment that can rejuvenate the external and internal genital and vaginal tissues without the need for surgery.
What happens during vaginal rejuvenation?
What happens during vaginal rejuvenation depends on the type of procedure and the outcome you’re hoping to achieve. Vaginal rejuvenation done for cosmetic reasons may be an outpatient procedure lasting only one or two hours, while a vaginoplasty done as gender confirmation surgery is significantly more involved, typically requiring a hospital stay of about a week.
Why do people get vaginal rejuvenation?
People get vaginal rejuvenation to address common issues associated with having children or menopause, including vaginal looseness, lack of lubrication and loss of sexual intimacy. Treatment can help minimize these symptoms as well as:
Loose skin around the vagina.
Leaking urine when jumping, sneezing or laughing.
Not being able to hold your urine.
Loss of sensation and sexual satisfaction.
Lack of confidence or low self-esteem.
What are the different kinds of vaginal rejuvenation?
Vaginal rejuvenation procedures can be surgical or nonsurgical. Treatment affects the vulva (the outer part of the female genitals) and the vaginal canal (where penetration occurs during sex or where you put a tampon).
