Why Some Makeovers Start with Your Vagina

The word makeover typically raises images of everything you desire for a new and better you- new clothes, updated hairstyle, and a smaller number on the bathroom scale. But if you don’t consider your vagina when planning your makeover, you could be missing out.

What’s Up Down There?

Just like other parts of your body, life events can change the way you look “down there.” Having babies, losing weight, and simply getting older can leave your vagina unrecognizable. If these changes have you feeling self-conscious during intimacy or when wearing tight clothing, your makeover efforts could fall short if vaginal rejuvenation is not on your list.

Torture on the Treadmill

Making time for the gym can be quite challenging.  If you add embarrassment and discomfort, valuable treadmill sessions may be few and far between. Extra tissue around your vagina can give the appearance of a bulge when wearing yoga pants causing you to feel self-conscious when dressing for your workout or to avoid the look altogether. Looks aside, long labia can rub during exercise causing irritation and discomfort thus turning your workout into a torture session.

Not Tonight Honey

When you aren’t feeling your best, your love life can suffer, too. That sexy, vivacious woman may fade away if you don’t recognize your own body, experience decreased libido or simply don’t find the same pleasure in sex anymore. After childbirth, the diameter of your vagina may increase, reducing friction and sexual gratification. While Kegel exercises can help, you generally will not see a return to your pre-baby diameter without vaginal rejuvenation.

Makeover Your Down Under

For all of these reasons and more, cosmetic vaginal surgery has grown exponentially over the last decade. The term most commonly refers to two procedures, vaginoplasty and labiaplasty.  A labiaplasy is when excessive labial tissue is trimmed or modified to enhance function, self-confidence, and image. A vaginoplasty is when the vaginal diameter and vaginal opening are modified to better suit the individual. These in office procedures typically take one to two hours. Most women are able to return to work after a couple of days and resume all normal activities after six weeks. Following vaginoplasty and labiaplasty, our patients typically note great improvements in their confidence, libido, and sex life.
