Vaginal rejuvenation is a collection of surgical and non-surgical procedures that can help women be happier with the way that they look, feel, and experience sex. Treatments range in their purpose, from firming up lax skin around the vaginal opening to improving sexual sensation by tightening the vagina to helping women orgasm more easily and more often.
Women’s Wellness Institute of Dallas uses well-established vaginal rejuvenation techniques to restore patients’ bodies following changes related to childbirth, aging, and genetics. Our practice is the only physician-led office in the city that specializes in cosmetic gynecology and sexual health.
Our director, Dr. Wesley Anne Brady, brings more than 20 years of experience to the care of our patients. She and our staff recognize that many women are new to treatment for these concerns. For this reason, we have designed each patient visit to be supportive, open, and informative.
Our highest priorities are our patients’ comfort, confidence, safety, and satisfaction. Therefore we strive to help guide each patient through the process, keeping them completely informed with details about the procedure from preparation & recovery to the cost of the procedure.
Exploring Options with Vaginal Rejuvenation
As a specialty practice, Women’s Wellness Institute of Dallas has extensive experience with many different vaginal rejuvenation surgeries and treatments. Find out more about some of the options available to our patients.
A woman’s vagina can widen as a result of childbirth or the passage of time. Dr. Brady performs vaginoplasty to reduce the diameter of a woman’s vaginal canal and opening. This tightens the vagina in a way that improves sensation and friction for a patient and her sexual partner.
While vaginal rejuvenation is the main goal of this procedure, Dr. Brady often combines the surgery with techniques to address incontinence. Many of our Dallas patients have experienced loss of bladder and bowel control following childbirth. As a result of surgery, they get an improved sex life and a better overall quality of life.
Votiva® is a non-surgical approach to tightening the vaginal opening and canal and to firming up the skin of the outer labia. The Votiva device uses radiofrequency energy to promote collagen development, which can reduce laxity in the tissue.
Dr. Brady may recommend Votiva for patients who have mild to moderate looseness in the labial skin or vagina. Women often choose to start with this type of non-invasive approach since there’s no downtime with treatment. Patients have three sessions spaced four to six weeks apart and can expect to see maximum improvement three months following the final visit. An annual maintenance treatment is recommended.
"Dr. Brady is wonderful! She is so caring and willing to spend as much time needed answering questions & explaining procedures. My results are great & I can’t imagine going through this with anyone but her."
Getting older doesn’t have to mean the end of great sex. The O-Shot® is an injectable treatment that Dr. Brady can administer to improve the health of the tissue around the vulva, G-spot, and clitoris. This non-surgical approach allows Dallas patients to have orgasms more easily and more frequently.
The O-Shot is based on advanced growth factor techniques. The treatment increases sexual sensation by concentrating and injecting a woman’s own growth and healing factors. This form of vaginal rejuvenation is natural, non-invasive, and a good option for women who feel that their sex drive has diminished and are ready to make a change.
As women go through menopause, they may experience vaginal tightness and dryness, both of which can make sex extremely painful or even prevent women from having intercourse at all. MonaLisa Touch® is a non-surgical approach to vaginal rejuvenation. Dr. Brady provides this treatment to help women improve their comfort and the quality of their sex life.
MonaLisa Touch is a small device that applies fractional CO2 laser energy to the vaginal tissues. The treatment encourages the development of new collagen and improves the blood supply to these tissues. As a result, the skin becomes softer, more pliant, and significantly less dry. Patients have three treatments once every four to six weeks and see the maximum improvement around three months afterward. A single yearly treatment helps them maintain the benefits.
Vampire Wing Lift
In a woman’s younger years, the outer labia around her vaginal opening will typically have a firm and compact appearance. As a result of childbirth, aging, and genetics, the tissue of the labia may begin to sag. This can cause women aesthetic concerns, discomfort while wearing certain clothes, and irritation during sex and other physical activity.
Women’s Wellness Institute of Dallas provides Vampire Wing Lift® as an alternative to Votiva and labiaplasty. It’s an injectable vaginal rejuvenation treatment for women with mild to moderate sagging in the outer labia. Vampire Wing Lift uses a combination of natural growth factors and dermal fillers to restore a plump and pink quality to the labia.
To give women a more youthful appearance, Dr. Brady can transfer natural body fat to the outer labia. This procedure adds fullness and reduces sagging in the skin around a woman’s vaginal opening.
Dallas patients will have fat taken from areas where they don’t want it, such as their flanks or abdomen, and have this fat moved to the area where they need it. The result is vaginal rejuvenation, younger-looking features, and a trimmer body contour.
The hymen is a crescent-shaped piece of skin that partially encloses the vaginal opening, and that may be torn the first time a woman has sex. Women may also tear their hymen as a result of physical activity unrelated to sex, such as placing a tampon, playing sports, or falling and injuring themselves.
Dr. Brady can perform a hymenoplasty for women who want to restore the hymen after it has been torn. As with every consultation, she will prioritize the patient’s comfort and privacy in discussing their options. Hymenoplasty takes place in an outpatient surgical center and requires about six weeks of medical restrictions afterward to allow patients to heal properly.

Q: How many vaginal rejuvenation surgeries has Dr. Brady performed?
A: Dr. Brady has performed over twenty four hundred vaginal rejuvenation surgeries since she became the first cosmetic vaginal surgery specialist in Dallas in 2006.
Q: Will vaginal rejuvenation improve my sex life?
A: The purpose of vaginal rejuvenation is to tighten the vagina for increased friction resulting in greater stimulation during intercourse. A patient’s sex life can also be enhanced by her increased self confidence and the resulting increased libido. Two scientific studies have recently been published to address this issue. These studies concluded that 83% to 90% of vaginal rejuvenation patients experience successful results with an improved sex life following surgery. Although no surgery carries a 100% success rate, Dr. Brady strives to provide every patient with an exceptional post operative experience.

Q: What are typical symptoms of women who choose vaginal rejuvenation?
A: Women who pursue vaginal rejuvenation to address their vaginal relaxation may complain of:
- Decreased sensation and stimulation during intercourse
- A loose vagina with minimal muscle tone
- A gaping vaginal opening unpleasing in appearance
- Their partner slipping out during intercourse
- Tampons falling out
- Their vagina producing embarrassing “gas-like” sounds during intercourse or a “popping” noise while walking
- Tissue protruding from their vagina
- Problems passing bowel movements
- Scar tissue surrounding the vagina
Q: Should I have my vaginal rejuvenation performed by an OB/GYN or by a plastic surgeon?
A: The answer is neither. Plastic surgeons often focus the majority fo their time at their practice the most common procedures like liposuction, breast augmentation, etc. Vaginal rejuvenation usually is a secondary procedure for them if they even perform it at all. They usually rarely have the opportunity to perform it and even so have limited expertise. General OB/GYN’s may examine hundreds of women monthly for pap smears or yeast infections, but they have minimal to zero training or experience on the procedure, not promising clear premium aesthetic and functional results. Cosmetic gynecologic surgery should ideally be performed by a surgeon who specializes in the field of aesthetic vaginal surgery. Patients should seek out a specialist who has performed hundreds to thousands of vaginal rejuvenation procedures. To receive the optimal results both aesthetically and functionally, the specialist you choose should be intimately familiar with the varied anatomy, patient preferences and latest surgical management.
Follow these tips to help choose a qualified cosmetic vaginal surgeon:
- Verify the credentials of the surgeon
- Review before and after photos of their patients
- Take the number of vaginal rejuvenation procedures performed into consideration
- Request patient testimonials of the practice
Q: How long will results last after vaginal rejuvenation?
A: The results of vaginal rejuvenation typically last for a lifetime, unless a new vaginal delivery reverses its affects. As we age, all parts of the body relax slightly but the vaginal area should never return to the degree of relaxation experienced prior to surgery. The aging process involves muscle, tissue, and skin throughout the entire body. Patients experience these aging affects following any elective surgery: the face following a face lift, the waist following a tummy tuck, or the thighs following liposuction.
