Are you unhappy with your vagina? Is it too flabby? Not as tight as it used to be? Maybe there’s a little discoloration? Well the new rave in plastic surgery has a cure for all of those issues. Vaginal Rejuvenation surgery, which also includes  Labiaplasty or Vaginoplasty, is the new rage in plastic surgery.  Recently on an episode of VH1’s Hollywood Exes, Nicole Murphy accompanied Jessica Canseco as she embarked on her Vagina Rejuvenation surgery.

As she’s having the surgery performed, Jessica Canseco states, “’You can’t hide your age with your neck but you can hide your age with your vagina.”

It’s not only the Hollyweird types having their vaginas rejuvenated, but women everywhere are embarking on this trend. Some of the reported benefits of Vaginal Rejuvenation is that it enhances vaginal muscle tone, strength, and control and improves the external appearance of the vulva and perineum. If you’re not interested in doing kegel exercises at your desk all day, this seems to be a quick fix.

If you’re looking for more of an “extreme love below makeover,” Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that reduces or reshapes the labia minora. For those who are not familiar with their lady parts, the labia minora is the skin surrounding the vaginal opening. According to the Cosmetic Surgery Center of Maryland’s website:

“Some women are born with large, thick or irregular labia; other women develop the condition after childbirth or hormonal changes. Enlarged labia minora are visible when the legs are not apart, or are barely separated, sometimes causing embarrassment, self-consciousness, and distancing in relationships. They may be noticeable in tight-fitting pants, and can cause discomfort during intercourse, exercise or with clothes”

Labiaplasty involves the trimming away of the excess tissue to reconstruct the vagina. Giving you a more youthful vaginal look, where as  Vaginoplasty surgery is done by removing excess vaginal lining and tightening the surrounding soft tissues and muscles.

Getting a younger vagina isn’t cheap, these surgeries can run from $3,000 to $10,000, depending on what version of rejuvenation you’re looking for.  For the record, these procedures are not covered by health insurance.  The recovery time for these surgeries vary from a few days, if you’re having a laser rejuvenation done, to several weeks for the Vaginoplasty and Labiaplasty procedures.  If you’re considering having any of these done, do realize that you probably won’t get to test drive the results for a while!

    Clutch promotes $3,000 – $10,000 elective (read “almost entirely unnecessary”) surgery at a time when Black unemployment in the U.S. is knocking on 15%. Seriously? Not to mention how this is another example of encouraging women to hate their bodies.

    Clutch is NOT promoting anything. We are talking about the topic and asking readers what they think. THANKS!

    What about the loss of sensation that accompanies all surgery. Every slice of a scalpel cuts through nerve endings. Not to mention floating pain that sometimes never goes away after surgery. Surgery seems like an easy fix, but nobody every discusses the problems that follows.

    Do it if you must, but be aware of all the issues that could follow.

  • jamesfrmphilly

    really? i find that hard to believe.

  • KitKat

    You are certifiable, for real.

  • The Comment

    This should be covered by health insurance. I’m sure it would be if more women were in the Senate. I love it! Bout time science do something to really help women look and feel their best.

    On a serious note. I’m sure former teenage prostitutes and women no longer in the sex trade are glad something like this exist as well.

    Something that’s not discussed in this article probably for brevity’s sake is that this is not only cosmetic but for some women a medical necessity. Above the author speaks of labiaplasty which is most often not cosmetic. The labia can become stretched or torn due to pregnancy, intercourse, exercise, hormones etc and causes MAJOR issues. Insurance companies and honestly the ignorance of people code it as cosmetic when many women are suffering in silence and embarrassment. This is yet another way women are treated like second class citizens. Insurance companies should be paying for labiaplasty.

    Any man who would try to make a woman feel bad about her lady-parts should piss off. Most men are just happy to GET some! LOL You won’t find a shortage of them who WOULD appreciate your nether regions just the way they are.

  • The Comment

    My thoughts exactly. It is hard for women, women who have not had children, women with perfect kitties, women who can’t think outside their own experiences—to think this procedure is out of vanity more than necessity. But when you think that some women don’t even take the time out to examine what they even look like down there…the ignorance and outcry against it is understood.

  • Echi

    As in restoring the hymen – well, yes, yes there is. Google hymenoplasty.

    This sounds like a surgery fabricated by men, to have us thinking there is something that needs to be corrected. Don’t get me wrong, if you need this because of medical necessity, then by all means, but just because you’re bored, you need something to do. And for the record, is there a surgery to rejuvenate penises?

    I think that labiaplasty is just weird. I think that this procedure has very little benefits at all, and if it has, it’s only for aesthetic purposes and to fill the lust of your partner. I mean, there is nothing wrong with that bu for me, this is just to dangerous and as long as I am happy with my vagina, will not do anything to it. It’s my future kid’s passageway for chrissakes!

    Unfortunately, much of our beauty practices originate in pornography (anal bleaching anyone?!) and added to this list is cosmetic surgery to the vagina – inside and out. Some of the surgery is for trauma say in childbirth, but too much of it isn’t. What a lot of women don’t realise are the dangers which lie in this procedure as with any kind of surgery. One could loose sensitivity or end up with no sensation at all. Other complications…scarring, infection, wrong vaginal shape i.e. too shallow…I say love your lady parts. Anyone who’s lucky enough to get that close to you and don’t like what they see (or feel) can move on to the next!

    I wish there was surgery to re-programme these women in the brain. Love yourself despite thangs not being perfect. Plastic surgery as far as I see it, is a way to run away from addressing deep seated insecurities. Sometimes, it’s not even about thangs not looking perfect, it’s about having a low self esteem. Heiii! Oh well.
