Vaginal Rejuvenation by Dr. Hardy. The term Vaginal Rejuvenation covers several different procedures. It is sometimes called female genital plastic surgery or female genital rejuvenation surgery. The procedures under this category comprise vaginoplasty, labiaplasty, clitoral hood reduction, labia majoraplasty and monsplasty.
This alternative is non-invasive vaginal tightening through heating tissues with radiofrequency waves or laser. We use CO2RE Intima with minimal down time, requiring only a few days of aftercare. Sexual activity can resume typically 7 days after the procedure. The procedure take 10-15 minutes and for the vaginal component only requires baby oil for lubrication. Please refer to our testimonials for additional references.
The CO2RE Intima is a non-invasive vaginal rejuvenation procedure that produces moisture and tightness in the vagina without surgery. The CO2RE Intima uses the latest fractional CO2 laser tissue rejuvenation technology to stimulate growth of brand new vaginal mucosa with collagen and elation which lubricates the vagina and restores elastic vaginal tone, flexibility and shape. As a result, the procedure alleviates dryness, itching and pain. CO2RE Intima can be a substitute for labiaplasty and vaginoplasty due to it’s ability to dramatically improve the appearance of the vagina much more beautiful toned and shapely. Patients with significant laxity may not experience a benefit from these treatments and may be better candidates for surgical tightening with vaginoplasty. Stress urinary incontinence is also treated with this procedure by rejuvenating the tissue around urethra thus allowing for better bladder control.
Labiaplasty is the most commonly performed vaginal rejuvenation procedure that can relieve discomfort on the labia minora by reducing the length of the labia from twisting and tugging. This procedure can also reduce asymmetry for esthetics reasons when one labia is longer than the other one.
Clitoral Hood Reduction
The extra folds on your clitoral area can create a bulge or a hood that is exaggerated and uncomfortable. When the labia minora is reduced, a clitoral hood reduction can improve the balance in appearance of the female genitalia.
This concentrates on the exterior esthetics of the vagina. The purpose of a monsplasty is to reduce the amount of fatty tissue and/or skin depending on the cause of the bulge. If skin is removed, a drain or two may be placed, with removal typically scheduled within the first few days. Liposuction can also be used to remove fatty tissue. Recovery takes about a week, with physical activity restrictions, depending on the extensiveness of the procedure.
This procedure involves removing two slight crescents of skin from the inner portion of each labium. The amount to be removed depends on the amount of excess tissue. In some cases, when there is atrophy of fatty tissue, liposuction can be suggested to transfer fatty tissue
