Though the popularity of vaginal rejuvenation surgeries has been on a steady rise in recent years, there are still many myths and misconceptions surrounding this procedure which confuse many potential patients who are seeking medical help. Below are some common misunderstandings that we hope to help clear up:
Actually, every single woman’s body and experiences are different. Each women who presents to our office to seek vaginal rejuvenation has their own reasons for coming. Every woman’s birth story is different and their complaints are different too. That said, the surgeries themselves although similar each have varying degrees of difference to achieve the best results for that woman. If a woman has a partner who is really large, her results will be different than a woman with a partner of average size.
Though vaginal rejuvenation procedures are performed with permanent improvements as the goal, there are some factors that will contribute to an “undoing” of the work that has been done. Subsequent vaginal deliveries will certainly change the vagina once again, even after a rejuvenation has taken place. Even undergoing a caesarian section creates such force on the pelvic anatomy, the results achieved with surgical vaginal rejuvenation can be undone. For this reason, women are encouraged to consider the procedure after they are done having children. Major weight gain or loss can also affect your vaginal rejuvenation or labiaplasty results.
Patients should realize upfront that vaginal rejuvenation is a fairly expensive procedure, generally ranging from $8,000 to $10,000 which should include the costs of anesthesia, facility fees, and surgeon’s fees. If you are looking at a vaginal rejuvenation surgery that costs significantly less than this, that should be a red flag and you may want to look into the background of the doctor offering it for such a low price. You should choose a surgeon who comes highly credentialed, has endless before and after photos and makes you confident in the prior work they have done.
