AVIVA Vaginal Rejuvenation
AVIVA is a non-excisional alternative to labiaplasty that we offer at our Naples, FL, practice for women who are self-conscious or unhappy with the appearance of their vaginas. Traditional labiaplasty usually requires IV anesthetic, significant downtime, and limitations on activities such as exercise and sex for several weeks. In some cases, the surgery also leaves visible scars. AVIVA is a game changer in female genital restoration since it requires no cutting of tissue and no lengthy scars.
To find out more about nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation, request a consultation with Dr. Hasen online or call (239) 262-5662 today. He serves women from throughout southern Florida, including Fort Myers and Bonita Springs.
Who is a Good Candidate for AVIVA?
Women seek vaginal rejuvenation and labiaplasty for two main reasons. One common reason is discomfort or irritation when wearing tight-fitting clothes, exercising, or having sexual intercourse. Another reason is that some women are bothered by the appearance of the labia and vagina, whether they are born with large or irregular labia or they experience changes with childbirth and aging.
Before AVIVA, there was no nonsurgical solution to reduce the size of the labia dramatically. Performed under mild sedation, AVIVA permanently shrinks and tightens the tissue using the power of radiofrequency.
The AVIVA Procedure
First, a local anesthetic is used to numb the vulva, including the mons pubis, labia majora, labia minora, and introitus. Then, the AVIVA probe delivers radiofrequency heat energy beneath the skin and mucosa of the vulva through a tiny incision to shrink bulky genital tissue. AVIVA uses the same InMode technology that we employ in BodyTite and FaceTite for tissue tightening elsewhere on the body and face. Next, the radiofrequency energy is applied to the skin’s surface to shrink and tighten lax genital tissue further.
AVIVA is a 30-minute outpatient procedure that requires only mild sedation and minimal downtime from exercise and sex. In fact, many patients prefer to keep their treatment private and drive themselves both to the procedure and then home. Many patients return to work within 1 to 3 days after the procedure.

AVIVA also presents a lower-risk option by eliminating surgical excision and scars of traditional labiaplasty. Patients have light irritation during the first few days after the treatment. Still, it is highly unlikely that the procedure will lead to some of the serious complications of surgical labiaplasty, such as lingering pain, dryness, bleeding, scarring, or loss of sensitivity.
The results can be seen soon after the procedure as swelling decreases in 1 to 2 weeks. The area continues to improve over the next 6 months. Patients usually require only one treatment per area.
