Cosmetic Genital Surgery in Arizona
Many patients suffer from genital deformities or are unhappy with the appearance and function of the genitals. It’s a taboo subject for many but recent advancements in plastic surgery has made genital surgery more open, accessible and acceptable than ever before. The Board Certified Plastic Surgeons at North Valley Plastic Surgery are highly experienced at performing cosmetic genital surgery.
Vaginal Aesthetic and Rejuvenation Surgery includes two types of procedures:
- Cosmetic surgery of the external vaginal and vulvular structures.
- Functional surgery of the vaginal canal for sexual function gratification. This is often called vaginal rejuvenation or vaginal tightening.
Vaginal Cosmetic Surgery
The goal of vaginal cosmetic surgery is to improve the appearance of the external vaginal and vulvular structures. Some women have abnormally large labia as a result of genetics or as a result of aging and or childbirth. These abnormally large labia can cause pain at intercourse, difficult and messy urination, and difficulties with hygiene and/or recurrent infections.
Vaginal Rejuvenation Surgery in Arizona
Vaginal rejuvenation tightens the muscles of the inside of the vaginal canal and the opening of the vagina. The goal of this is to improve sexual satisfaction. Aging can cause stretching of the vaginal supportive tissue and muscles that may result in abnormalities of the vaginal opening. For some women, this may result in a decrease of sexual sensation.
Vaginal rejuvenation will effectively enhance the tautness and tightness of the vaginal walls and vaginal opening by decreasing the vaginal diameter and surgically repairing the damage caused by vaginal childbirth. However, the surgical technique required for each individual patient varies depending upon the amount and type of vaginal relaxation found.
In some cases, the damage to the vaginal walls can be so severe that other pelvic organs may have lost their support. If such an issue exists, it must be repaired surgically before vaginal rejuvenation surgery.
Get the Facts about Genital Surgery
No physician, sexual partner or spouse should tell you to have cosmetic genital surgery. Only the individual considering cosmetic genital surgery can make that decision. A patient must remember that all surgeries have potential risks and some cosmetic surgeries are essentially irreversible (such as labiaplasty). Only the patient can make the decision to go to surgery after the physician discusses with the risks, benefits and alternatives to cosmetic genital surgery.
The surgeons at North Valley Plastic Surgery give patients the knowledge, facts about each procedure, and alternatives to cosmetic genital surgery including vaginal rejuvenation.
