Along with 30 years of cosmetic surgery experience, Plastic Surgery Associates’ own, Dr. Heather Furnas, is considered one of the country’s premier experts in female rejuvenation procedures. With so many female rejuvenation options available, we understand that choosing the right procedure can sound intimidating. However, Dr. Furnas is here to help you find the ideal option for female rejuvenation, based on your individual needs.
What exactly is female rejuvenation?
Vaginal rejuvenation, also known as female rejuvenation, can refer to labiaplasty, vaginoplasty, or a combination of these techniques. The procedures are designed to improve the appearance of the genitals, as well as reduce any associated pinching and pulling of tissue under clothes or during intercourse. Vaginoplasty tightens the vagina, reducing vaginal laxity to improve sexual function.
What is the best female rejuvenation option for you?
The female rejuvenation procedures that will best help you achieve your goals can be discussed at the time Dr. Furnas speaks with you to best understand your physical and emotional concerns, followed by a physical examination. Each technique can be performed alone or in combination.
Whether the result of genetics, changes that occur during pregnancy, or aging, women can experience physical and emotional symptoms from long, misshapen, or asymmetrical labia. Some women are embarrassed that their labia are visible in bathing suits or in yoga pants. Long labia can also cause pain from pulling, chafing, twisting, and tugging.
Dr. Furnas’ labiaplasty is an outpatient procedure, designed to eliminate the excess labia tissue. Dr. Furnas uses a technique, which she has described in a plastic surgery journal, to sculpt an aesthetically pleasing labium, reducing or eliminating symptoms. Many women find the labiaplasty can dramatically improve their confidence during intimacy.
The vaginal walls and are meant to stretch over time, especially with childbirth. Muscles can be stretched and separated, resulting in vaginal laxity. Stress incontinence, losing a little urine when laughing or sneezing, can also be the result of diminishing vaginal muscle tone.
A vaginoplasty surgically tightens vaginal muscles to improve stimulation for both partners during intercourse. During the vaginoplasty, Dr. Furnas will remove unwanted, stretched tissue, bringing vaginal muscles back together, and tightening the vaginal canal.
Women who begin to notice mild changes in vaginal tightness, a decrease in sexual pleasure, and urinary incontinence – yet not interested in a surgical procedure – have another exciting option for female rejuvenation. Dr. Furnas offers her patients Genevieve, a noninvasive technique that utilizes cryogen-cooled monopolar radiofrequency to tighten vaginal muscles. The procedure is performed in a comfortable treatment room, generally taking less than 30 minutes. There is no need for anesthesia or sutures, meaning women can get right back to their normal routine. The Genevieve applicator uses volumetric heating, producing a gentle warming sensation, to stimulate collagen in the vaginal tissues, which will then tighten over time.
