What Female Genital Rejuvenation Procedures Are Available?
The female reproductive system is complex. Surgeons need skill and understanding when performing these procedures. Even then there are some potential problems that can arise after surgery such as decreased sensation, increased sensation, or alteration of function.
Increases muscle tightness of your vagina by firming the vaginal canal to reduce effects of aging and childbirth. This can reduce or eliminate noises made by movement or air trapping and may improve your sensation during intimacy.
This procedure is normally performed for women who have labia minora (inner lips) that are:
- Extending beyond the labia majora (outer lips).
- Noticeably asymmetric
- Torn from vaginal childbirth or physical trauma.
These issues can cause discomfort during physical activity or intimacy and self-consciousness when wearing tight clothing such as bikinis or yoga pants.
Clitoral Hood Reduction
Removes excess skin, part of the clitoral hood, to improve clitoral sensation. Fairfax and Northern Virginia women with excess skin in this area may have difficulty becoming sexually aroused or stimulated by contact. Removal is straightforward, and frequently results in improved intimate experience.
The Mons Pubis refers to the soft mound of skin over the pubic bone in the front of your pelvis. This is round in youth with the labia majora (the externally visible labia) neatly proceeding toward the vagina at it’s bottom edge. As we age, the mons can get depleted and the skin can hang down a bit. Also as we age and give birth, the labia themselves tend to elongate and hang inferiorly. The skin over the mons can be tightened and the fullness can be restored with fat taken from elsewhere, and the labia can be restored to their short appearance. These two “fixes” will restore the genital appearance from the front view – removing the elongated, hollow appearance that is common.
Although complications are unlikely because of Dr. Jespersen’s experience with these procedures, there are small risks such as bleeding, infection, and scarring. While these are rare, when they do happen they require immediate attention.
