Labiaplasty & Vaginoplasty
VAGINOPLASTY – VAGINAL RESHAPING & TIGHTENING SURGERY
Cosmetic Gynaecology is one of our fastest growing surgical procedures, with women increasingly realising that they don’t have to simply accept something that’s making them unhappy. We meet women every day who have either always been unhappy with their vagina or have become unhappy due to natural changes from childbirth, ageing or weight loss.
Also known as Vaginal Reshaping & Tightening Surgery and Vaginoplasty, our specialist gynaecological surgeons can perform surgery on the outer areas of the genitalia - the pubis mound and labia minora - and on the inside if the surgeon is tightening the area. Women can also change the way their labia and surrounding vaginal tissue look with the help of Vaginoplasty, significantly reducing embarrassment or discomfort.
Vaginoplasty (Vaginal Reshaping & TIGHTENING)
Cosmetic Gynaecology, especially Vaginal Tightening & Reshaping (Vaginoplasty), a.k.a. 'Designer Vagina' surgery, has become increasingly popular over the last few years, particularly with new mums as the vaginal muscles can be left loose and weak after child birth.
Some women experience specific problems, such as lack of sensation and satisfaction during intercourse. The Vaginal Tightening and Refashioning procedure improves the way your vagina looks, feels and functions; and can have dramatic results in terms of restoring your confidence and self-esteem.
Vaginoplasty can also be performed alongside a number of other procedures, such as a labiaplasty.
LABIAPLASTY (LABIAL REDUCTION)
A Labiaplasty (often known as Labial Reduction surgery) is a surgical procedure that reshapes and reduces the labia Minora/Majora, the inner and outer of the ‘lips’ that surround the opening of the vagina.
Women can have Cosmetic Gynaecology to change the way their labia and surrounding vaginal tissue look with the help of Vaginoplasty. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your genitalia, or if it is causing you embarrassment or discomfort, book in for a consultation with one of our experienced nurses or surgeons to see how this surgery could help you regain your body confidence.
The clitoral hood, or prepuce, is the tissue that naturally drapes and conceals the clitoris to protect against over-stimulation. This sheath naturally retracts during sexual intercourse leaving the clitoris exposed. However some women with excess prepuce find they cannot climax as the surplus tissue limits stimulation.
Clitoral Hoodectomy removes the excess tissue allowing the clitoris to become more easily exposed enabling women to experience improved sexual activity.
FOuRCHETTE (frenulum of labia minora) RECONSTRUCTION
During childbirth the fourchette may be torn; to limit damage to the woman's body the midwife may perform an episiotomy, deliberately cutting from the fourchette and continuing back along the perineum toward the anus. The incision can, on occasion over-repair itself leaving a raised area within the vagina that can become sore and cause pain during intercourse.
Fourchette Reconstruction is a procedure that removes the rigid scar tissue enabling you to be more comfortable with your body.
Perineal Refashioning is a procedure to improve the appearance and the muscle tone of the perineum area which has been damaged by an episiotomy or tear during childbirth. This procedure has been known to enhance the feeling of sexual gratification.
