Any type of cosmetic vaginal procedure is a complex medical surgery that requires a skilled surgeon to perform. Once you have decided to undergo vaginal surgery, it is important to be aware of and understand what is involved with each type of surgery, so that you and your gynecologist can make the best decision that is right for you.
Here is a brief explanation of some of the available cosmetic vaginal surgery procedures that Dr. Jacobson provides in Connecticut. To see examples, click the button above.
Women often consider labiaplasty. This type of cosmetic vaginal procedure involves contouring the labia into a tapered form for a natural look, or narrowing it, resulting in a thinner look. Part of labiaplasty may also include reducing the clitoral hood. Our cosmetic vagina surgeons in Connecticut perform labiaplasty with the use of radiofrequency surgery, a well-studied technology that results in precise incisions and eliminates the thermal damage seen with laser procedures. This technique results in less post-operative swelling, inflammation, bleeding, and pain.
Similar to labiaplasty, labia majora reduction surgery reshapes the outer lips at the entrance of the vagina. This type of surgery is less common than labiaplasty and can be helpful if your labia causes discomfort in the way your clothing and bathing suits fit. Women choose this surgery if they are unhappy with the sagging appearance of the outer lips due to significant weight loss, aging, childbirth, or genetic factors.
This type of cosmetic vagina procedure is intended to tighten the vagina when it has loosened as a result of aging or childbirth. Dr. Jacobson will evaluate and assess the diameter, muscular tone, and strength of the vagina. By decreasing the vaginal diameter, there is increased friction with intercourse and heightened sexual gratification. Vaginoplasty can also help with urinary stress incontinence or a fallen bladder, which includes surgically elevating the bladder out of the vagina and into the abdomen.
Clitoral hood reduction surgery is also known as unhooding or hoodectomy. In many cases, a clitoral hood reduction can increase sensitivity in the clitoris and result in a more intense sexual response. Patients may also experience less difficulty achieving orgasm and a higher frequency of sexual climax.
