Vaginal rejuvenation doesn’t come up in a typical everyday conversation. Perhaps it’s because many women still think that surgery to pretty up your intimate area is vain or unnecessary. Nevertheless, this procedure is surprisingly popular.
What is vaginal rejuvenation?
Vaginal rejuvenation is known by many names including aesthetic vaginal surgery, female genital plastic surgery, vaginoplasty, or laser vaginal rejuvenation. Vaginal rejuvenation is simply a general term for several common gynecological surgical procedures that aid in tightening and supporting the vagina, the vaginal opening, and the vaginal canal. Vaginal rejuvenation is sometimes recommended for such issues as urinary leakage, vaginal looseness, and to otherwise improve or enhance sexual functions.
Despite the growing popularity of vaginal rejuvenation, there are still a few common misconceptions. For example, there is a cosmetic aspect to it. Pregnancy frequently stretches the vulvovaginal tissues. This can cause them to sag. Vaginal rejuvenation can help. Still, there’s a lot more surgery can do for women who have given birth so be sure to do your homework and ask questions.
