The Differences Between Vaginal Rejuvenation And Labiaplasty

As women grow older, their bodies undergo a lot of changes. This results in changes in the appearance of the vaginal area. This is expected, especially after women get pregnant and give birth. Their bodies are no longer the way they were when they were younger.

The vagina may not be as tight as before, which may cause the woman to become more self-conscious when they are getting intimate with their partner. It may even cause you to lose your self-esteem when it comes to bedroom matters.

Whether it’s pregnancy, hormones, or age that has affected your feminine wellness, the good news is that you can restore the appearance and functionality of your vaginal area. You don’t need to feel embarrassed or ashamed of the changes you experience in your vaginal area.

Many women go through the same, and thus, you don’t need to condemn yourself too much. You can opt for several procedures if you want to tighten the vaginal canal and reshape the outer vulva area.

Vaginal Rejuvenation

Vaginal rejuvenation refers to several cosmetic procedures that are used to restore the female genitalia. It may include both surgical and nonsurgical procedures and gives the woman a chance to determine which approach they want to take. An example of a surgical vaginal rejuvenation procedure is the vaginoplasty, which involves repairing vaginal laxity. Vaginal laxity happens when the tissues in the vaginal area stretch too much, and the muscles separate. It could cause problems in bowel movement and even cause your tampons to fall out during menstruation. Vaginoplasty restores your female genitalia by removing the excessive mucosa skin from the backside of the vagina. If you want a more aesthetic appearance, then the doctor can also remove the external skin. This procedure helps to reconstruct and tighten the vaginal walls, improving your sex life.

The other example of a nonsurgical vagina rejuvenation procedure is the laser vagina rejuvenation. It doesn’t involve any surgical procedure. Instead, it uses laser therapy to create micro-lesions needed to produce new collagen to help in the regeneration of the vagina tissues and walls. After the procedure, the vaginal mucosa becomes more hydrated and nourished. The vaginal ph is restored, and the epithelium becomes more elastic and toned.


Whereas vaginal rejuvenation will tighten the vagina and improve muscle tone, labiaplasty mainly sculpts and reshapes the labia. There are certain instances when a woman may feel the need to work on their labia. Some women feel that their labia is too elongated such that it even interferes with their sexual activities. You can sculpt your labia if you are experiencing any discomfort or discontentment. Labiaplasty can be performed on its own, without the need for vaginoplasty. If you feel that your labia is too large and it’s causing unnecessary attention, you should consider labiaplasty. However, it is good to note that there is no such thing as a standard or normal labia.

It is okay to feel dissatisfied with the function and appearance of your vagina and labia. In case you experience vaginal laxity or discontentment of any kind, visit your gynecologist to advise you on the available treatment options.
