Labiaplasty and Vaginal Rejuvenation
Vaginal Rejuvenation can refer to several procedures: Labiaplasty is an effective procedure that reshapes and/or reduces the size of large or asymmetric inner or outer labia. A vulvoplasty 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. Niki Christopoulos MD, FACS will guide you through this process at your personal consultation in a careful and sensitive manner, to create for you a more symmetric, and refined contour
Am I a good candidate for a Labiaplasty and Vaginal Rejuvenation Surgery?
Ideal Candidates for a vaginal procedure are patients 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
Dr. Niki Christopoulos’ Approach to a Labiaplasty and Vaginal Rejuvenation 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.
Dr. Christopoulos is a double-board certified plastic surgeon and performs her surgeries in a fully accredited outpatient surgical facility. Anesthesia is administered by an anesthesiologist using either intravenous sedation or general anesthesia for your comfort and safety during the procedure. The procedure can take anywhere from 1-3 hours, although complicated procedures may take longer.
Labiaplasty and Vaginal Rejuvenation 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.
