Cosmetic surgery is performed to enhance the appearance of a part of the body. Vaginal rejuvenation is a term used for various cosmetic surgeries performed on the female genitalia to enhance its appearance. The most common forms of vaginal rejuvenation are labiaplasty, labia majoraplasty, and monsplasty. These different cosmetic surgeries are often combined for a complete vaginal rejuvenation process.
Labiaplasty is the surgical altering of the inner labia to improve symmetry and shape. The inner labia are the inner folds of the vagina, and they can be altered or stretched from childbirth or injuries, or they may be naturally asymmetrical. The excess tissue on the inner labia is trimmed and surgically removed. Labiaplasty can help reduce pain during intercourse, discomfort during exercise and improve appearance.
Labia Majoraplasty is the surgical altering of the outer lips of the vulva. These hair-bearing folds’ shape can be altered by weight loss, childbirth, or aging. Labia Majoraplasty helps correct this by permanently reducing or removing the excess skin on the labia majora. The procedure is relatively quick and only leaves a small scar that is hidden in a natural hidden crease.
Monsplasty is the surgical removal of fat from the upper pubic area (mons pubis). Weight gain is common in this area during pregnancy, after childbirth, with age, and with natural weight fluctuations. While this natural pad of fat is used by the body to protect the pubic bone, it can be uncomfortable in certain clothes and can affect a person’s self-image. Monsplasty can correct this by removing fat and loose tissue.
