Will Vaginal Rejuvenation Improve My Sex Life?
Vaginal rejuvenation procedures are sought by women for a number of reasons, ranging from functional difficulties and medical concerns to cosmetic dissatisfaction. One question many patients ask board-certified plastic surgeon Steven Yarinsky, MD, is whether female intimate surgery and non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation will have a positive effect on their sex life. Depending on their unique concerns and the procedure or treatment being performed, it is very possible that vaginal rejuvenation can enhance sexual intimacy. After all, if a woman feels better about herself and more secure with her body and how it functions, that more confident feeling radiates outward to enhance her relationships.
Vaginal rejuvenation spans a wide range of surgical and non-surgical treatments which can improve vaginal wellness and a patient’s overall quality of life. The desire for enhanced intimacy often drives women to choose to have these procedures. Enhanced sexual intimacy is often a major benefit of vaginal rejuvenation. This can be achieved as the different procedures accomplish one or more of the following:
- Eliminate pain felt during sexual intimacy
- Tighten loose or torn tissue near the vaginal opening
- Reduce elongated labia minora which may become irritated or chaffed with intercourse
- Increase clitoral or vaginal sensitivity which can enhance the ability to reach orgasm
- Improve lubrication
- Enhance overall sexual function
- Restore self-confidence
As women address and treat their intimate concerns through state-of-the-art vaginal rejuvenation procedures, they often experience a boost in their romantic relationships. Dr. Yarinsky emphasizes that those who experience discomfort or difficulty during sexual intercourse or simply don’t like the way they look, should consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon experienced with vaginal rejuvenation to learn if a surgical or non-surgical option may be able to improve their sex life.
