Vaginal Rejuvenation can refer to several procedures: Labiaplasty is a very powerful tool to reshape and/or reduce the size of large or asymmetric inner or outer labia. Vulvaplasty refers to a reshaping and recontouring of the vulva, or outer vaginal region. Many women who are bothered by enlarged, fatty or asymmetric labia, whether a result of genetics, childbirth, weight gain and loss, or the natural aging process now have an option to give them back their self confidence and comfort. Dr. Christopoulos will guide you though this process in a careful and sensitive manner, to create for you a more symmetric, and refined contour.
Ideal Candidates for Vaginal Rejuvenation are women who:
Are bothered by the asymmetric or enlarged size of their inner labia
Have discomfort during sex or other physical activities
Are self conscious of their appearance in bathing suits and other types of clothing
Wish a sleeker, more refined contour to their labia
Wish a reduction in the size of their mons pubis
About the Procedure
Dr. Christopoulos performs her surgeries in a fully accredited outpatient surgical facility or in the private comfort of our office. The procedure can take anywhere from 1-2 hours, depending on the technique used and each patient’s individual anatomy.
Dr. Christopoulos, in conjunction with an anesthesiologist, will use either oral anesthesia or IV sedation to keep you comfortable and safe during your procedure.
Incisions are discreetly hidden along the edge of the inner labia or along the inside of the outer labia. If a reduction in the size or bulk of the mons is required, this can be achieved through either liposuction or surgical resection, also via inconspicuous scars hidden in natural skin creases.
Recovery and Results
The length of recovery and healing process does vary from individual to individual. It is natural to expect some bruising, swelling and minor discomfort after your procedure. Bed rest is usually recommended the day of your procedure and most patients can return to work within 3-7 days. Dr. Christopoulos will advise you to refrain from strenuous activity and sexual intercourse for several weeks after your procedure.
