Second only to hot flashes, vaginal atrophy is one of the top challenges that women face when they reach menopause or when they experience a drop in estrogen levels for any reason. The team at Revive Wellness Center can help relieve your symptoms and reboot your sexual health with a variety of treatments that rejuvenate your vagina and external genitalia. Contact one of their offices in Torrance and Palm Springs, California, or schedule an appointment online when you’re ready to come in and learn about women’s rejuvenation procedures.
Vaginal rejuvenation includes several procedures that target the vagina and external genitalia.
Some procedures improve your sexual experience by enhancing the G-spot or tightening the vagina, which stretches and loosens due to childbirth. Other procedures alleviate embarrassment you may have over large labia or a prominent mons pubis.
Vaginal health suffers as women age and their levels of estrogen drop. Estrogen helps vaginal tissues stay strong, elastic, and lubricated. When hormones decline, vaginal atrophy results, causing:
Labiaplasty is surgery to reduce the size of the labia, which are the folds of tissue on both sides of the vaginal opening. The surgery can also be done to eliminate asymmetry. You may need to take a week off from work to allow time for swelling and pain to go away. Most women can have intercourse in about 4-6 weeks.
Vaginoplasty enhances women’s sexual experience by tightening walls inside the vagina. Noninvasive laser treatments can stimulate collagen growth and restore vaginal tone, but they may not produce sufficient results if you have significant vaginal looseness.
During surgical vaginoplasty, the surgeon repairs weak or separated muscles and removes excess tissues. You may need 1-2 weeks of downtime, and you can’t use tampons or have intercourse for eight weeks following surgery.
Some women have excess skin covering the clitoris, which can be reduced by a clitoral hood reduction. This surgery is usually done at the same time as a labiaplasty to ensure a balanced appearance.
The mons pubis is also part of your external genitalia; it’s the fatty, hair-bearing pubic mound. Some women have a mons pubis that’s so prominent they’re embarrassed to wear a swimming suit.
Monsplasty reduces the amount of fatty tissue or skin that makes up the mons pubis. The procedure may include surgery to remove skin or liposuction to eliminate fat, depending on how much tissue the surgeon removes.
G-spot injections contain hyaluronic acid, which is a substance naturally produced by your body and a common ingredient in dermal fillers. When injected into the small, sensitive area inside the vagina known as the G-spot, hyaluronic acid temporarily enhances the area, which helps you reach orgasm.
