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!
