Labiaplasty refers to plastic surgery of the vaginal lips and in its cosmetic application. It is commonly sought for tightening and minimally reshaping the vaginal lips. It is sometimes referred to as vaginal rejuvenation surgery. However, plastic surgery is an invasive approach that puts forth considerable expenses and a recovery period. This is why some people choose non-invasive alternatives to labiaplasty. Two of the most common non-invasive alternatives to labiaplasty include:
These are special exercises that are recommended for women who are suffering from distended vaginal lips along with overall loss of vaginal skin elasticity. Kegel Exercises are holistic in their approach; they are directed at all the core muscle groups that affect the vaginal muscle tone. This includes the pelvic muscles that tend to weaken due to aging, childbirth and conditions such as uterine prolapse. Weakening of pelvic muscles is very common among post-menopausal women, who are among the most common of women seeking a surgical labiaplasty. These exercises might not be the best option for women who are seeking a more undemanding solution and immediate results.
Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation
Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation, or LVR, is perhaps the most undemanding form of non-invasive labiaplasty option. The entire procedure is completed within an hour or two, as an outpatient procedure. There is negligible recovery time and no fear of side-effects or the need to take prescription medications. LVR is now deemed at par with labiaplasty and is often referred to as laser surgery. This is because of the precision and comprehensive results of LVR. Unlike plastic surgery, LVR is devoid of incisions and sutures.ﾠLaser Vaginal Rejuvenation is aimed at improving the overall muscle tone of the vaginal musculature that helps to restrict the protrusion of vaginal lips. Laser labiaplasty aimed at vaginal lip reduction can be customized to a greater extent.
The inner lips or labial minora can be reduced to a greater extent or the sagging, outer vaginal lips (labia majora) can be made aesthetically-appealing, as per the specifications of the patient. The patient can combine complementary treatments like lipo-sculpting of the vulva wherein the fat deposits around the mons pubis and labia majora are systematically removed.
