Dallas Vaginal Rejuvenation
Have you ever commented that sex is just not the same after the baby(s)? The cause of this may be from the widening of the vagina and the separation of the vaginal muscles in the middle that happens when the baby delivers vaginally. This widening causes looseness of the vagina which results in minimal frictional forces during intercourse. The sexual gratification of the woman is thus reduced, and indeed sex is just not as enjoyable as before the baby.
Vaginal Rejuvenation Procedure
The Vaginal Rejuvenation procedure is a two-hour outpatient surgical procedure designed to repair and restore the natural anatomy of a woman’s vagina. It can be performed using only a local anesthetic with mild sedation so the patient is very comfortable during the procedure. Special technology is used which can include the laser. In fact, it has also been called Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation, or LVR.
The procedure takes around two hours to complete. During the procedure, the muscles of the vagina that had been torn or separated during a prior vaginal birth are repaired and tightened. The result is a narrower and tightened vaginal opening. This increases frictional forces that occur during intercourse and thus enhances the sexual gratification of the woman. The procedure is a modification of a gynecological surgical technique used for years for a similar indication. The procedure is normally performed in our AAAHC accredited surgicenter located right within our office. Most women love the difference and are very pleased with the results.
RECOVERY AFTER VAGINAL REJUVENTATION
After the vaginal rejuvenation surgical procedure, most women do experience some pain and pressure in the pelvic area. We have devised a special postoperative treatment plan that helps reduce this pain effectively and make your recovery very bearable.
Patients are up and walking the day after the procedure and normally can resume sedentary work activities and driving within 1 to 2 weeks. They then gradually increase their activities and are back to their normal activities anywhere from four to six weeks after the surgery. Of course, no intercourse until the area is totally healed, which is usually at around 6 weeks post procedure.
Complications from the procedure are rare and can include infections and some spotting. During your consultations, we go over everything with you so you know what to expect after the procedure. And, as with all our procedures, we are always available for you if you need us.
OTHER OPTIONS FOR VAGINAL REJUVENATION
Surgical Vaginal Rejuvenation is a great option to improve your sexual experience. Another great option that helps many women is a painless out-patient procedure called the V-Lase. Here, a laser is used to tighten and thicken the vaginal walls, but there is no downtime to these V-Lase procedures. Several treatments are needed over time for optimal results, but they are painless and very well tolerated by all patients. Many times, these treatments are all that you need to improve the sensations within your vagina.
The V-Lase is a good start for rejuvenation of your vagina. However, if the V-Lase treatments do not give you the results you desire, you can have the surgical Vaginal Rejuvenation procedure performed at a markedly discounted price. Thus, you win regardless of the option you choose.
IMPROVE YOUR SEXUAL HEALTH
Many internal medical and health-related problems can also affect your sexual life. These can include a lack of hormones, obesity, the aging process, and medical illnesses. All can diminish sexual sensations that should otherwise occur during sexual activity. These changes can reduce sexual satisfaction and reduce your quality of life. Luckily, we have options that improve your internal health which can also help restore your vaginal health in many ways for better sex.
If you think you may have problems related to these issues, we can help. We have options that can improve your health, including hormone pellet therapy, weight-reduction programs, age-management, and treatment of many medical conditions. Schedule a consultation with us to find out how we can help you take care of all these health factors plus improve your sexual health.
TAKE THE QUIZ
See if you’re a candidate for Vaginal Rejuvenation by taking this brief quiz:
- Do you feel “loose” vaginally since childbirth and/or menopause?
- Do you feel intercourse is just not the same since childbirth?
- Do you have trouble reaching orgasm?
- Do you occasionally dribble or leak urine when you sneeze, cough or exercise?
- Have your intimate relationships suffered due to these changes?
- Are you experiencing a loss of self-confidence? Loss of interest in sex? Loss of desire?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may be a candidate for Vaginal Rejuvenation or V-Lase. At the least, you should be evaluated to see if there are other reasons why you are having these problems so we can address all your issues. We can then help you return to a more fulfilled sex life and better quality of life.
