Everything You Need to Know About Vaginal Rejuvenation

In the quest for female intimate health, wellness and confidence, vaginal rejuvenation has emerged as an important solution for many women. 

Dr Natalia Novikova, a gynaecologist, offers important insights into sexual wellness treatments and other pelvic rejuvenation procedures. We want to demystify vaginal rejuvenation, exploring what feminine rejuvenation is and looking at the outcomes for many women.

What is Vaginal Rejuvenation?  

Vaginal rejuvenation is a procedure that includes enhancing vaginal muscle tone, strength, and control. The procedure seeks to revitalise the vagina for improved sexual wellness, vaginal aesthetics, and comfort. 

The umbrella term – Vaginal Rejuvenation – includes both surgical and non-surgical approaches to address concerns relating to ageing, childbirth, or hormonal changes. 

Why Do People Get Vaginal Rejuvenation? 

People decide to get genital rejuvenation for many reasons. These include: 

  • Enhanced sexual satisfaction and intimacy. 
  • Restores vaginal tightness and elasticity that is lost when giving birth or getting older. 
  • Improves incontinence, specifically urinary incontinence. 
  • Boosts your self-confidence and overall body image. 
  • Addresses the overall view of your genitals, specifically when it comes to cosmetic or aesthetic concerns. 

What Are the Different Types of Vaginal Rejuvenation? 

Surgical Vaginal Rejuvenation Options

Surgical options like vaginoplasty (vaginal tightening), labiaplasty (reshaping the labia), and pelvic floor therapy are popular for their long-lasting results. 

These vaginal health procedures can help with functional and aesthetic concerns. 

Non-Surgical Vaginal Rejuvenation Options 

Non-surgical options include laser treatments, radiofrequency therapy, and hormonal treatments. These options offer less downtime and can often be effective for many vaginal issues (tightening, improving lubrication, and enhancing overall vaginal wellness). 

How is Surgical Vaginal Rejuvenation Done? 

Surgical rejuvenation procedures are performed under anaesthesia. The techniques can vary  based on what you want to improve: 

  • Vaginoplasty involves the tightening of your vaginal canal and muscles. Allowing for vaginal restoration. 
  • Labiaplasty is used to reshape or reduce the size of both the labia minora and labia majora.
  • Pelvic floor therapy helps strengthen your pelvic floor muscle through either exercise or surgical means. 

What Are the Good Things About Vaginal Rejuvenation? 

The benefits include: 

  • Improved body image and self-esteem. Especially for vulvar rejuvenation and vaginal cosmetic procedures.  
  • Improved sexual satisfaction for both you and your partner. 
  • Improves urinary incontinence issues. 
  • Improved lubrication to reduce vaginal dryness. 

Are There Any Problems With Vaginal Rejuvenation? 

As with many intimate rejuvenation procedures, there are risks involved. We look out for infection, sensation changes, and dissatisfaction with results. 

When deciding which practitioner to go with, it is important to look for a qualified and experienced provider. This will reduce the overall risk of a vaginal rejuvenation. 

How Long Does Vaginal Rejuvenation Last? 

Many women report improvements in their sex life, confidence, and symptoms after a vaginal rejuvenation. 

The effectiveness depends on your condition and the type of procedure you select. 

When Should I See My Doctor? 

It is important to consult with a healthcare provider if you are considering getting a vaginal rejuvenation. 

Your provider will be able to look at your needs and discuss options. This will help them develop a personalised treatment plan for you. 

Will My Medical Aid Pay for Vaginal Rejuvenation? 

Many medical aid companies consider vaginal rejuvenation a vaginal cosmetic surgery. This means that they do not cover the costs involved in getting the treatment. 

However, many procedures addressing medical issues like urinary incontinence may be covered. 

How Much Does Vaginal Rejuvenation Cost? 

The costs of vaginal rejuvenation depend greatly on the type of procedure, provider, and location. 

Genital aesthetic surgery options have higher upfront costs, while non-surgical treatments might require you to do multiple sessions. This influences the total cost involved. 

Vaginal rejuvenation offers you the means to renew your confidence and intimate wellness. By understanding the types, benefits and considerations, you can make an informed choice. Your health and well-being are the most important factors to consider.
