FemGen Rejuvenation

In recent years we’ve seen an increased awareness about vaginal revitalization surgeries, such as Labiaplasty. Surgery on this sensitive area, which can be referred to as the “V zone” or FemGen (short for female genitalia), has existed previously in the context of correction of birth defects, trauma, such as through labor, addressing discomfort, etc.

Now it seems that requests for “designer vaginas” have significantly increased. There’s even a term for a desired look called the “Barbie.” This implies a flat vaginal area, which results in either a reduction in labia majora or removal of the labia minora all together. While I have many years of experience and have supported many women in their vaginal surgery journey, it’s important to know that the popularity of this procedure has to come with caution as to their health and safety when choosing a surgeon because of the lack of official oversight and training in this particular area of surgery.

So whether you’re interested in a FemGen surgery because you want to feel confident with how your labia look or more comfortable with how they feel, I can support you. Working on this area takes delicate artistry and anatomical knowledge to provide the best results. Here is some more information about your FemGen revitalization options.

Labiaplasty Compared to Vaginoplasty

Vaginoplasty addresses internal muscles and tissue of the vaginal corridor. This is normally done to correct birth defects that could prevent complications of childbirth or even repair damage from childbirth. It also can result in enhanced sensation and sexual pleasure during intercourse, which has become an increasing reason for women requesting this surgery. Recovery takes several weeks.

Labiaplasty corrects concerns with the labia minora or majora. There is a wide variety of normal labia sizes, shapes, colors and textures. The reason for Labiaplasty may be to address bothersome labial imbalances, discomfort during intercourse, or self consciousness when wearing tight workout clothes or swimsuits. Labiaplasty is also called Labial Revision, Labial Beautification, Labial Reduction or Labial Augmentation, and has a minimal recovery time.

Other FemGen Options

FemGen issues also extend to the perineum, which can experience trauma during childbirth. Perineoplasty can correct poor healing from drastic tearing or irregular scarring from episiotomy.

Volume loss is not an issue that just affects the face, but with age, volume in the “V zone” decreases also. This is visible as deflated labia or pubic mons, which is the fatty tissue over the pubic bone. This loss of padding on the pubic mons and labia majora can result in discomfort during intercourse. Fortunately, Fat Transfer, also known as Fat Grafting, is a great natural V zone volume replacement option.

So whether your desires are feature or function related, this topic is not taboo and you can receive help. If you’d like to talk about your options in the caring confidence of an experienced FemGen surgeon, please schedule a consultation at www.davinciplastic.com.

Revitalizing the “V Zone”

With today’s refined techniques and heightened sensitivity of the plastic surgery industry, there’s no reason for any woman to be unhappy with how her feminine nether regions look or feel. We briefly discussed the topic of revitalizing the “V zone” in the Mommy Makeover blogs a few months ago. I thought it would be worth going over in depth to help more women, not just recent moms, realize that there can be a solution for their concerns in this area and it isn’t taboo.

GETTING BACK TO NORMAL… As women age and especially after childbirth, the female genitalia, let’s call it FemGen for short, can drastically change. It may look different, feel different or both. Every woman is unique, but some are born with irregularities that cause discomfort. Any of these irregular FemGen issues, whether genetic or from life experience, can be very troubling both emotionally and physically for women in all ages and stages of life. Revitalizing the “V Zone” through Labiaplasty or Vaginoplasty can help women feel normal in that sensitive area, which can increase self confidence and sexual satisfaction.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LABIAPLASTY AND VAGINOPLASTY… To simplify, Vaginoplasty addresses internal vaginal corridor and Labiaplasty addresses concerns with the outside labia minora or majora. There is also Perineoplasty, which is commonly done to correct poor healing from vaginal trauma in childbirth resulting in a drastic tear or episiotomy with an irregular scar. Vaginoplasty is usually done to tighten the vaginal canal. This is the most complicated of the FemGen procedures because it addresses internal muscles, so it requires a very skilled and experienced surgeon. Labioplasty is the most commonly performed surgery of the 3. It is also called Labial Revision, Labial Beautification, Labial Reduction, Labial Augmentation, etc.

  1. LABIAPLASTY RESTORES BEAUTY AND COMFORT… To some women, their “flower” looks a little wilted, large or lopsided and so Labiaplasty can beautify this area. Refining the labia also means more comfort for some women. If the labia is too enlarged, thickened or elongated, it can cause several physical discomforts or embarrassment.

2.  Excess tissue from enlarged labia traps moisture causing irritation, rashes and infections.

3.  Visible lumps can be seen through tighter clothing, such as athletic wear, tight pants, baithing suits, etc.
4.  Certain movements can be uncomfortable, like when exercising, biking and during sexual intimacy.
5.  Labia can cause discomfort and pain during intimacy and get in the way of sexual gratification and fulfillment.

“V ZONE” VOLUME LOSS… This isn’t just an issue for the face. Volume loss that comes with aging affects the FemGen area too. This loss of padding on the pubic mons and labia majora can make sexual intimacy quite uncomfortable. Fortunately, the natural padding can be restored through Fat Transfer, also known as Fat Grafting.

So whatever it is you’d like to address in your FemGen area; tightening,contouring/ trimming, filling to replace volume or flattening (remove an obvious bulge), there is a safe and effective procedure that can help you restore confidence and comfort.

Female Cosmetic Surgery…Put the excitement Back into your love life!

Female Genital Cosmetic surgery is not new…it just hasn’t been talked about much.  Women used to be shy and embarrassed to discuss intimate health concerns with their physician let alone sexual issues. But, not so anymore. The stigma is gone…and men and women have put away their “Intimacy Inhibitions.” The Boomers want to live life to the fullest and that includes exciting sexual gratification. They are leading the charge in all areas of cosmetic procedures…and have done away with the stigmas completely.

Today, Female Genital Rejuvenation procedures are popular and common.

In this blog, I’ll do a quick overview to bring you up to speed.

First off, there are several Vaginal Rejuvenation techniques (procedures) used to correct problems following childbirth, trauma, illness and age related changes.  Women are now making some of these rejuvenating options part of their “Mommy Makeover.” These include:

1) Vaginoplasty employed to rejuvenate the vaginal area to a more youthful, and/or pre pregnancy condition.

2) Clitoral Hood Management rejuvenates this area and restores sexual function

3) Labiaplasty…for the Labia Majora and Labia Minora includes Labial Reduction, Labial Enhancement, Labial Beautification, Labial Revision etc.  In brief, these procedures reduce  or enhance the size and shape of the labia to eliminate embarrassment and to enhance sexual excitement.

4) G Spot Amplification puts the sizzle and WoW back into your sex life.

Why We Do Female Genetic Cosmetic Surgeries

Aging, hormonal changes, genetic factors, trauma, illness, childbirth ( nearly all women experience some degree of vaginal damage with each childbirth)…all these life changers affect not only a woman’s health in the genital area (V Zone) but also her sexual function and enjoyment may be dramatically impaired.  This usually affects the other partner also.

What Bothers Women Most

  • Vaginal looseness…especially after vaginal childbirth
  • Pain & discomfort in the genital area
  • Embarrassment over physical changes such as labial enlargement (shows through some clothing & during certain activities)
  • Embarrassment with appearance during sexual intimacy (ashamed in front of sex
  • partner)
  • Woman doesn’t feel healthy and beautiful anymore
  • Loss of function…reduced sensation resulting in lost sexual gratification
  • Reduced self confidence … lost self esteem
  • And More……

There are Several Options…

Women come to me today, often with their life partners full support, to design their personal female rejuvenation/restoration plan.  They are always relieved and excited to learn about the safe, effective options we can do to make them feel normal, healthy and beautiful again.   Yes, women often feel less than attractive as unwelcome changes occur in this intimate area of their body.
