What is Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Essentially, Vaginal Rejuvenation is a procedure to tighten the vaginal canal. Aging, childbirth, or the combination of both sometimes causes anatomical changes that may affect the normal function of the vagina. Performed as an outpatient procedure, Vaginal Rejuvenation is a surgical procedure to tighten the vaginal canal and reduce the size of the vaginal opening. Not only does the procedure rejuvenate the lining of the vagina, it addresses the supporting tissues surrounding it – aiding in increased muscle tone, control, strength, and possibly increasing sensation and pleasurable friction during intercourse.
This procedure, even though most of times it’s needed to relieve pain and discomfort, is also referred to as plastic surgery, cosmetic surgery and even, designer laser Vaginoplasty.

Repair of Vaginal Stenosis
Eliminating painful sex
The procedure includes making an incision at the posterior fourchette (the skin below the opening of the vagina), removing a small amount of skin, making incisions into the STP muscles to relax the vaginal outlet, and pulling and attaching the posterior vaginal mucosa over the perineal body to create a larger opening.
Vaginal Lift, or ″Colpopexy″
Re-positioning of vagina
This surgical procedure used to re-position a woman’s vagina that has moved from its correct physical location. Women may experience what is known as vaginal prolapse, where the vaginal structure weakens and falls in on itself; it may even protrude externally through the vaginal opening.
Repair of a torn hymen
This procedure may be performed to repair a torn hymen, which is a thin membrane located at the opening of the vagina. Women may request this surgical procedure for cultural, religious, or social reasons, but the effect is similar to that of a “second virginity.” During the procedure, fine sutures are used to repair the torn remnants of the hymen. Performed under local anesthetic, hymenoplasty surgery is a relatively quick outpatient procedure. A hymenoplasty can also be performed for women who feel pain or discomfort during normal activities.

Labia Majora Plasty
