Vaginal rejuvenation options
Pittman Plastic Surgery is pleased to offer our patients two options for Vaginal Rejuvenation: Labiaplasty and THERMIva.
Candidates for Labiaplasty
You’re a candidate for labiaplasty if you commonly experience irritation, rubbing, or pain as a result of longer labia minora. Most patients feel self-conscious about the appearance of their labia and opt for surgery to achieve a more aesthetically pleasing result.
Labiaplasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure that’s designed to trim the length of the labia minora, to reduce irritation or discomfort, while restoring the patient’s confidence. At Pittman Plastic Surgery, female plastic surgeon Chelsea Venditto, MD, performs labiaplasty procedures that help make women feel more confident and comfortable in their own skin.
A labiaplasty is performed by an experienced plastic surgeon. While you’re under general anesthesia, your surgeon will reduce the size of the labia minora until desired results are achieved. Your surgeon may also remove excess skin around the clitoral hood to complement your new results. The surgery is finished by using absorbable sutures to close the incisions.
Labiaplasty Recovery & Results
Most patients can return to work and light activity one week following surgery but should refrain from any vigorous or sexual activity for 6 weeks. Most swelling and bruising will disappear within 2-4 weeks following surgery; patients can use ice packs to help with these symptoms.
You’ll begin to notice results right away, although complete recovery can take up to six months.
When a labiaplasty is performed by an experienced plastic surgeon they ensure that any incisions naturally fold into the creasing of the skin. This leaves no visible scaring.
Every individual is different and their motivation varies from person-to-person. Some of the most common reasons are chronic irritation, sexual discomfort, appearance, and confidence. No matter the reason, Pittman Plastic Surgery is here to provide safe medical solutions.
There are several reasons a woman can develop an enlarged labia. Some of the most common reasons are due to age, sexual activity, childbirth or simply genetic reasons.
Childbirth, aging, or a change in hormones can cause the vaginal muscles to loosen or relax. THERMIva is a non-surgical procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to heat and tightens the vaginal muscles, improving the appearance of the vagina, sexual activity, and incontinence.
During a THERMIva procedure, a handheld device is used on the desired treatment area – typically the external labia and internal vaginal wall. Heat slowly builds and the device is moved in a circular or sweeping motion over the treatment area. The heat shrinks tissue and tightens muscles while promoting collagen production. A complete THERMIva treatment includes three separate treatments over the course of three months.
Because THERMIva is a non-surgical procedure, there is no downtime. Patients may immediately return to work and normal activities, including sexual intercourse. Because tissue tightening and collagen production is a gradual procedure, patients typically see some results after the first treatment, with full results developing after subsequent treatments and over the next several months.
Women of any age with vaginal laxity, vaginal dryness, stress incontinence, or sexual dysfunction are candidates for THERMIva. THERMIva is a non-surgical procedure that tightens and shrinks the tissue in the vagina. It is a non-invasive and painless way to relieve certain gynecological symptoms and conditions and improve sexual function.
Results last approximately 9-12 months and many patients choose to undergo a touch-up once a year.
The entire procedure takes about an hour.
Individuals can participate in normal activities before the procedure. Normal pap within last 2 years.
