1. Why do women need Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Vaginal rejuvenation surgery is a broad term for all procedures that are being done as vaginal corrective treatment. The anatomy of the vagina changes due to 2 main reasons - increasing age and childbirth. Because of increasing age and the process of childbirth the strength and tautness of the vaginal muscles decrease and they become weaker as compared to before.
This weakening of vaginal muscles can cause a few problems in women such as urinary incontinence, lack of vaginal lubrication, etc. Vaginal rejuvenation surgery can be done to help women get relief from these issues.
Most women opting for vaginal rejuvenation surgery do so for cosmetic reasons. Because of the popularised trend of hair removal, more women are now frequently using hair removal methods like shaving or waxing, which in turn leads to women observing more of their genitalia. The increasing trend of having a “perfect anatomy” is the leading cause to choose cosmetic vaginal rejuvenation surgeries.
Although, there are benefits of the vaginal rejuvenation procedure, you should always keep in mind that these procedures are not necessarily required and can lead to more damage than benefit. So, always be clear about your reasons for opting for these surgical processes and conduct your research properly before going in for any of these.
That being said, there are certain benefits of having a vaginal rejuvenation surgery that are mentioned below:
- Reduction in urinary incontinence
- Tightening of the vaginal muscles after childbirth.
- More comfort during intercourse
- Increased ability to feel orgasms
2. Methods of Vaginal Rejuvenation :-
Methods of vaginal rejuvenation include both surgical and non-surgical procedures. Both these options have various particular procedures that are done. All these have their own risks and benefits, based on the limited research that has been done on them. Which is the most suitable procedure will be decided by you and your surgeon depending on your personal situation and expectations.

Vaginoplasty is a vaginal rejuvenation surgery that is usually done for tightening of the vaginal muscles. This procedure is done under local or regional anesthesia which can be done for the full length of the vagina or for some part of it. Some vaginal rejuvenation procedures that are done in vaginoplasty include clitoral unhooding, revirgination, etc.
This procedure can have some risks like bleeding, infection at the site of surgery, constipation, etc.
Labiaplasty refers to the surgical modification of the labia minora. This is a cosmetic procedure that is usually performed to change the structure and shape of the labia. The labia minora is shortened during this procedure by cutting the excess part and stitching it up.
This process done under local anesthesia can have risks like hemorrhage, wound infection, hematoma formation and scarring.
Vulvoplasty is also a cosmetic vaginal rejuvenation process that involves reshaping the vulva to look a certain way.
Radio frequency or the RF procedure is a nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation procedure that uses electromagnetic waves called Radio Waves. These waves are passed into your vaginal tissue that heat up the tissue and cause more collagen deposition because of the micro trauma. This increased collagen deposition results in making the muscles of the vagina more taut.
CO2 Laser :-
The CO2 laser technique also uses the same thought process for tightening of vaginal muscles. Only the procedure is different. During this process, a wand is inserted in your vagina which heats up the tissues of vagina increasing collagen deposition there which causes tightening of the vaginal muscles and skin.
3. Vaginal Rejuvenation: Post-Treatment care :-
Just like any other procedure, there are certain precautions and care that you need to take after your vaginal rejuvenation procedure that are discussed below:
- Take rest
- Maintain good hygiene
- Refrain from sexual intercourse
- Avoid hot tubs and swimming pools
- Avoid heavy exercise
Take rest :-
Getting an appropriate amount of sleep and rest is very important to shorten the recovery time after any procedure. Getting good amounts of sleep has been scientifically proven to enhance muscle building and recovery.
Maintain Good Hygiene :-
Maintaining good vaginal hygiene is extremely important after the procedure to prevent any infections. This involves using plain warm water to wash the area well. Do not use any kind of soap for washing as that can cause pH imbalance in the vagina.
Refrain From Sexual Intercourse :-
While these procedures have zero or minimal downtime and you can go back to your daily activities immediately after the procedure, your surgeons will advise you to refrain from sexual intercourse for a few weeks after the procedure to prevent any unnecessary pressure or trauma to your pelvic area.
Avoid Hot Tubs and Swimming Pools :-
You should avoid hot tubs or swimming pools for at least 8 weeks after the procedure as these can hinder the recovery period. Also, using public swimming pools or hot tubs increase your risk of catching an infection that might lead to wound infection.
Avoid Heavy Exercise :-
Avoid engaging in any intense or strenuous activity that puts stress on your pelvic area like jumping or running.
