The look of the body is extremely important for most women. For some, it is essential that they are at ease with their body and that they are emotionally well-balanced and happy with their sex lives. These days, it has become quite the normal thing to have your breasts enlarged or even to have surgery on your butt. It is no wonder then, that women are also looking to rejuvenate their more intimate areas. This article will look at various vaginal rejuvenation and sex enhancement surgery techniques that are commonly available. I will also look at the alternatives, such as kegel exercises, vaginal creams and gels.
Most types of reconstructive vaginal surgery fall under vaginal rejuvenation. This includes laser surgery and large labia reduction surgery. It can also include reconstructive surgery where damage has been caused for any number of reasons, but mainly because of ageing and more usually because of childbirth. Hymen repair is also popular in some cultures where it is important that new brides seem to be innocent. Hymen repair is also sometimes used when damage has been caused by other reasons such as sport.
Amongst the most popular forms of plastic cosmetic surgery are vaginal rejuvenation, labiaplasty, hoodectomy and liposuction.
Surgery for large labia reduction is called Labiaplasty.The labia minora are the flaps of skin directly either side of the vagina. For most women this is never an issue. However, some women are born with enlarged labia minora which can be a cause of anxiety for some. Some women become extremely self-conscious about their large labia from an aesthetic point of view and seek to have them reduced. It’s also quite common that sex is not enjoyable or even painful for women with large labia. Wearing tight clothing can also be the cause of irritation because of the heightened friction and pinching of the labia minora against clothes. It is also quite common for the labia minora to become enlarged after a woman has given birth several times. Labial surgery can be used to reduce the labia, or in some extreme cases remove it altogether
Hoodectomy is also a form of female genital cosmetic surgery. You may be offered this if you are having Labiaplasty as this is generally an aesthetic issue. This procedure reduces or removes the hood of the clitoris altogether. This is carried out in order to enhance the aesthetic look of the vagina after Labiaplasty and to heighten sexual sensitivity around the clitoris.
It is worth bearing in mind that Labiaplast and Hoodectomy are two separate procedures, this will mean additional cost, so make sure you agree everything with your cosmetic surgeon.
Liposuction can also be used when the mons or vulva are excessively fat. When a plumper, fuller Vulva is what is desired, fat grafting can be performed to achieve this.
Vaginal Rejuvenation Surgery
Vaginal rejuvenation surgery has been developed by a handful of plastic surgeons and has been designed to restore the vaginas elasticity and tightness. By removing excess tissue and repairing the vaginal muscles and wall, it restores the muscle tone and tightness of the vagina. Loosening of the vagina is caused by ageing and more commonly by childbirth. Vaginal rejuvenation surgery aims to reverse this process of loosening and to enhance sexual enjoyment.
It is this kind of sex enhancement surgery that is quickly gaining popularity amongst the jet set and anyone who is looking for the latest in cosmetic procedures. You should be warned though, there are some risks that are not often discussed in any detail in surgeons glossy brochures. Some women report scarring, infection and also a loss of sexual sensation around the clitoris.
Apart from the fairly excessive costs of all of these cosmetic procedures, it’s also worth bearing in mind that the recovery time can be anywhere between four and eight weeks. In this period of recovery time you will also not be able to engage in any kind of sexual intercourse.
What are the best alternatives to vaginal cosmetic surgery?
If you are looking to have reconstructive surgery i.e. a reduction of large labia, then there are no alternatives. If however, you are simply looking to tighten a loose vagina, then it is fairly easy to find other methods.
Have you ever heard of Kegel exercises? Kegel exercises were developed in order to help people re-tone and strengthen the muscles of the vagina and pelvic floor. Apart from being extremely easy to do, many women report that they can retighten their vaginas to a point that they are stronger and tighter than before childbirth.
These exercises do take some work done, you should bear in mind you might not see any results from at least a couple of weeks if not even months. Motivation and determination are the key factors for success with Kegels.
