Vaginal rejuvenation or vaginal tightening, which is clinically called labiaplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to improve the appearance of the vagina. In some cases, the surgeon may also have to performed labiaplasty repair in order to restore the appearance and make the vagina appear tighter and firmer. Dr. Paul McCluskey is a dedicated surgeon in Atlanta, GA providing a wide range of plastic surgery procedures, including labiaplasty.
Improved Sexual Aesthetics
As the name suggests, the labiaplasty surgery primarily involves surgical treatment of the labia. The procedure may include labia minor or labia major, which are also known as inner vaginal lips and outer vaginal lips respectively. Labia are indicative of the ‘lips’ that surround the vaginal area. Their appearance can be improved with vaginal rejuvenation or labiaplasty repair. The goal of the procedure usually is to trim the labia and enhance the symmetry and proportion between inner and outer labia.
As an experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. McCluskey ensures that his patients are made aware during the initial consultation about what the labiaplasty procedure can or cannot do for them. The surgery is essentially aimed at enhancing the aesthetic appearance of the vagina, but it is not a procedure to improve the sexual sensitivity or sexual gratification. While a surgical improvement in the vaginal tissue may lead to a higher stimulation and better sexual response, but there are no adequate scientific studies available to back up this claim.
Vaginoplasty is now a common term applied by many cosmetic surgeons to represent a group of procedures, which include labiaplasty, vaginal tightening, and repair. According to the information provided by the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), female genitals can have a broad range of natural appearances, all of which are equally acceptable in anatomical terms.
In pure clinical terms, it is difficult to pin point to a specific way in which the vagina or the labia will look ‘right’ in their appearance. A few surgeons are employing laser and other techniques to perform labiaplasty with higher accuracy.
Different Treatment Options
A number of treatment approaches are available today that are designed to achieve vaginal rejuvenation. Some of the popular options include the following:
Hymen is the sensitive tissue at the entry of the vagina, which ruptures during the first sexual intercourse. Some surgeons may perform a re-virgination procedure called hymenoplasty that is aimed to restore the hymen in order to mimic the original virginal condition.
G-spot is believed to be the most erotic point around the frontal vaginal walls for a woman. Some people like to believe that the high sensitivity of this spot is ideal to achieve female orgasm. The surgeon may amplify the impact of the G-spot through an injectable delivery of collagen, which will stimulate the targeted area and make it more rejuvenated gradually.
The excess tissue covering the clitoris may be reduced by way of clitoral unhooding procedure. The technique is designed to provide enhanced sexual sensitivity. A customized treatment approach may be adopted by the surgeon to meet the specific personal goals and needs of the patient.
