Oh My Vagina! Taking Care of Your Womanhood
Although it might sound bizarre to some, to others there is nothing more beautiful than a woman’s private parts. Both because of its function (giving the gift of life!) and its shape, the vagina can be truly beautiful, even if most people do not see it. However, you can feel even more beautiful as a woman by taking care of your most beautiful body part through vaginoplasty—even if it is only you and your partner who know.
What Is Vaginoplasty?
Vaginoplasty is, simply, plastic surgery on the vagina. While this can be medically reconstructive, today it is becoming more and more popular as a cosmetic surgery. Think of it as a face lift for your vulva and vagina.
It is often combined with labiaplasty, which surgically alters the shape or size of the labia, or the outside of the vagina. Vaginoplasty, on the other hand, is specifically concerned with the inside of the vagina, removing excess lining and tightening the surrounding skin and muscles. More and more often, vaginoplasty is becoming part of sex change operations for trans women.
There are numerous types of vaginoplasty, each using different types of cuts and techniques to produce the desired results. You can make the decisions on what procedure and effects to chose after consulting with Dr. Tehrani.
Is Vaginal Rejuvenation the Same Thing?
Although it might sound similar, and they definitely are related, vaginal rejuvenation is not the same as vaginoplasty. Rejuvenation procedures are all non-surgical. Instead, it provides a similar effect (restoring a youthful look to the vagina and tightening outer tissues) through other means, often lasers.
This is often undertaken after childbirth to help women return to their normal comfort levels, both physically and emotionally. It can also seriously increase sexual gratification in many women and help treat urinary incontinence.
What have you got to lose? If you are a woman and are looking to feel better about yourself, come talk to Dr. Tehrani about vaginoplasty or vaginal rejuvenation. After a consultation, you will know whether it is the right choice for you and your body.
