If you are experiencing reduced sexual pleasure due to loosening of the vaginal tissues and muscles- vaginal rejuvenation, or vaginoplasty, may improve your quality of life. Women who undergo vaginal rejuvenation experience increased confidence and sexual pleasure.

Reduced Sexual Pleasure

Aging, hormonal changes, dramatic weight loss and vaginal delivery can alter the size and shape of your vagina. These changes may cause you to be self-conscious or uncomfortable with the appearance of your genitalia. In addition, the vagina can lose elasticity and sensitivity to the touch. As a result of vaginal laxity, many women notice decreased friction during intercourse and reduced sexual pleasure.

Vaginal Rejuvenation and ThermiVa

There are two main procedures for vaginal rejuvenation:

  • Vaginoplasty is a surgical procedure that reduces the vaginal diameter and tightens the internal and external vaginal canal. After a few weeks of healing, you should notice a difference in the appearance and firmness of your vagina. There are no visible scars or signs following the procedure, as your OBGYN makes all incisions and sutures inside the vagina.
  • ThermiVa- Your OBGYN uses a radio frequency device over several sessions to tighten your vaginal tissue. This procedure is non-surgical and does not require any recovery time. There is no visible evidence of ThermiVa treatments.

Enhanced Sexual Pleasure

Vaginoplasty and ThermiVa can enhance sexual pleasure by increasing your self-esteem and confidence, as well as tightening the vaginal canal to increase friction and sensitivity. While there is no guarantee or scientific support that either vaginoplasty or ThermiVa will enhance sexual pleasure, many patients who undergo these procedures report improved sexual arousal and satisfaction.In addition, many patients’ partners also report enhanced sexual pleasure as a result of vaginal rejuvenation.
