Q: Since I have had children, things just aren’t the same. My vagina isn’t like it was before I had children, resulting in vaginal enlargement, with loose, weak, vaginal muscles. I perform Kegel exercises with no improvement. I didn’t know about this procedure. But I am happy to know that something can be done. Please explain to me how Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation can help me.
A: Women are very concerned about their sexual health, sexual gratification, and procedures to enhance sexual gratification. These are very common issues that are voiced by women often.
Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation for the enhancement of sexual gratification is a modification of a standard gynecologic surgical procedure. The laser is used to perform, precise, aesthetic surgical incisions. This results in a relatively bloodless procedure performed in the office, on an outpatient basis. We are able to tighten the vaginal muscles and supportive tissues, and reduce redundant vaginal mucosa (relaxed vaginal lining). The procedure will enhance vaginal muscle, tone, strength, and control. It will effectively decrease the vagina’s internal and outer (introitus) diameters, as well as build up and improve the perineal body (the area immediately outside the vaginal and above the anus. The procedure can also provide an aesthetic improvement of the external vaginal structures, giving a more youthful and restored look. Our during your consultation is to help you achieve your desired goals.
