Several types of cosmetic surgery procedures can be performed for vaginal rejuvenation. If you are experiencing vaginal discomfort due to oversized and stretched labia, you may be a candidate for labia reduction surgery. Conversely, labiaplasty can be performed to enhance underdeveloped labia.
Our surgeons also have experience performing pubic lifts for women who have sagging pubic tissue due to weight fluctuation, pregnancy or age. In many cases, vaginal rejuvenation goes beyond addressing a woman's cosmetic concerns and can increase physical and emotional comfort both in and out of clothing.
Vaginismus is a condition affecting a woman's ability to engage in any form of vaginal penetration, including sexual intercourse, insertion of tampons, and the penetration involved in gynecological examinations. An involuntary reflex of the pubococcygeus muscle causes the muscles in the vagina to tense suddenly, which makes any kind of vaginal penetration painful or impossible. The vaginismic reflex can be compared to the response of the eye shutting when an object comes towards it.
A variety of factors can contribute to vaginismus. These may be physical or physiological, and the treatment required depends on the individual. A pelvic physical therapist can assess hypertonic pelvic muscles that often affect and/or cause vaginismus.
Treating Vaginismus at Fox Valley Plastic Surgery
Using BOTOX® injections to treat vaginismus dates back to 1997. BOTOX and a local topical anesthetic are injected in the vaginal walls, and the vagina is then progressively dilated after a physician applies the anesthetic. Under the supervision of a pelvic physical therapist, the patient practices moving the dilator in and out of the vagina for several days. The patient will eventually transition from dilators to intercourse.
