Vaginal rejuvenation is a cosmetic procedure that is becoming more and more common among women. Vaginal rejuvenation actually refers to a number of procedures that are available to rehabilitate or rejuvenate the vagina, labia, clitoral hood, and the area around them. Although many women undergo vaginal rejuvenation for aesthetic or sexual reasons, there are a few medical conditions that can be remedied with vaginal rejuvenation as well.
What Is Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Vaginal rejuvenation most often refers to the renewal of the vagina. The muscles of the vagina can become weakened for a number of reasons, the most common being pregnancy and childbirth. Childbirth is very hard on a woman’s sexual organs. Many women find that they are not able to maintain their sexual health after childbirth. Vaginal rejuvenation firms and tightens these muscles.
Vaginal rejuvenation can also include other procedures. Sometimes the labia, or outer lips, can become stretched or misshapen due to pregnancy and childbirth. This, too, can be corrected with the appropriate cosmetic surgical procedure. Clitoral hood reductions can also be a part of vaginal rejuvenation.
Medical Reasons to Have Vaginal Rejuvenation
Unfortunately, childbirth wreaks havoc on a woman’s reproductive and sexual organs. This can cause a number of problems. You may have pain during intercourse or be unable to use tampons. You may also have issues with stress incontinence, which is dribbling urine when you cough or laugh. Both of these problems that stem from childbirth can be remedied with vaginal rejuvenation.
Surgery and Recovery
Recovery time for vaginal rejuvenation procedures varies depending on what is done and the extent of the surgery. You will want to make sure that you allow yourself a few weeks of recovery time. You may be advised not to have sex or use tampons for a specified period of time. Your doctor will let you know what recovery instructions you need to follow.
