Schedule A Consultation


Vaginal rejuvenation is a broad term encompassing various surgical and non-surgical procedures aimed at improving the appearance, function, or health of the vagina and vulva (external genitalia). It’s a growing trend, but there’s ongoing debate about its medical necessity and effectiveness.


  • Surgical Rejuvenation
  • Labiaplasty: Reshaping or reducing the size of the labia minora.
  • Vaginoplasty: Tightening the vaginal muscles and tissues.
  • Perineoplasty: Repairing the perineum, the area between the vagina and anus.
  • Clitoral hood reduction: Removing excess tissue covering the clitoris.
  • Non-surgical Rejuvenation
  • Laser therapy: Uses laser energy to stimulate collagen production and potentially improve vaginal laxity or dryness.
  • Radiofrequency therapy: Similar to laser therapy, using radiofrequency waves to tighten tissues.
  • Fillers: Injectable substances like hyaluronic acid to plump up the vaginal tissues.

Reasons for Considering Vaginal Rejuvenation

  • Addressing vaginal laxity (looseness) after childbirth or aging
  • Treating urinary incontinence (leakage)
  • Improving sexual function or pleasure
  • Enhancing vaginal appearance

Important Considerations

  • Limited scientific evidence: More research is needed to confirm the long-term safety and efficacy of many vaginal rejuvenation procedures, especially non-surgical methods.
  • Focus on function over appearance: The vagina naturally changes throughout life, and a healthy vagina doesn’t require a specific look.
  • Underlying causes: Addressing factors like hormonal changes or pelvic floor weakness might be more effective than cosmetic procedures.
  • Alternatives: Physical therapy exercises like Kegels can strengthen pelvic floor muscles, and lubricants may help with dryness.

Risks and Complications

  • As with any medical procedure, there are potential risks associated with vaginal rejuvenation, such as infection, bleeding, scarring, or discomfort.
  • Non-surgical methods may have temporary side effects like swelling or burning.

When to See a Doctor

If you’re experiencing symptoms like vaginal dryness, pain during sex, or urinary incontinence, consult a healthcare professional to discuss the underlying causes and appropriate treatment options.
