Naples and Fort Myers patients considering feminine rejuvenation have access to today's most promising options from Kent V. Hasen, M.D. Vaginoplasty is a popular choice for women bothered by vaginal laxity and looseness, often caused by childbirth and other events, or natural changes. Here, learn how vaginoplasty can help you discover renewed sexual enjoyment and a strengthened sense of self-confidence.
What Is Vaginoplasty?
"Vaginoplasty" is a fairly broad term that refers to any surgical procedure that improves the condition of the vaginal canal. This is different from labiaplasty, which treats the labia majora, labia minora, and other external structures of the vulva.
Are You a Candidate?
Vaginoplasty is a good choice for patients bothered by changes to the vaginal canal. Such changes can be caused by several different factors, including pregnancy, vaginal childbirth, aging, and hormonal fluctuations. On our Vaginal Rejuvenation page, we've described how a woman's body changes throughout her life. Women who visit Dr. Hasen for vaginoplasty typically report some of the following symptoms:
- Reduced enjoyment of sex
- A sensation of pressure or discomfort due to pelvic floor damage
- Occasional urinary incontinence
- Diminished self-confidence
Prospective patients should be in generally good health, with realistic expectations for surgery and a positive, collaborative attitude.
How Much Does Vaginoplasty Cost?
The cost of vaginoplasty is determined by several factors, including how technically significant your surgery is, as well as if any complementary procedures are included. The average cost for a vaginoplasty in Naples is around $6,000, but there are certainly outliers. At the end of your consultation with Dr. Hasen, we provide a specific, customized written quote for you to take home and consider.
Customizing Your Procedure
Vaginoplasty is typically performed while you are under general anesthesia in order to maximize your comfort. Typically, Dr. Hasen uses an incision on your perineum, which is the area between your vulva and anus. Through this incision, he is able to access your vaginal tissues to surgically tighten them and remove excess tissue, if necessary.
In addition to tightening and improving the condition of your vagina, Dr. Hasen can include complementary procedures during your surgery to completely customize your experience and your results. These include:
- Perineoplasty, which tightens the vagina's entrance. This is often indicated after vaginal childbirth, which can leave the area permanently stretched or misshapen.
- Hoodectomy, known more plainly as "clitoral hood reduction." By reducing the amount of tissue that surrounds your clitoris, this small procedure can vastly improve your sexual satisfaction.
Recuperating at Home
After your vaginoplasty, you can expect to spend a few days resting at home. While most patients are back to work and other light activities within a week or so, the specific length of your recuperation depends on the significance of your procedure. You'll also need to plan to take up to 6 weeks off from strenuous activities and sex to allow your affected tissues to heal properly.
Vaginoplasty isn't your only option when it comes to feminine rejuvenation. Dr. Hasen offers a full range of surgical and nonsurgical choices to treat precisely the concerns that bother you most. One of the most popular alternatives is nonsurgical ThermiVa®, an energy-based treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to gently heat and tighten the internal and external genital structures. This controlled heating stimulates the development of your body's own collagen, leading to a renewed sensation of tightness, improved sexual function, and, for many women, an aesthetic improvement.
