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.

Vaginoplasty…restores health to your V Zone and it can reignite your love life!

“Intimacy Inhibition” simply refers to the embarrassment women have endured over health issues with their female genital area. Talking about these secret places was always taboo  to the point of often causing serious health problems.  Today…the embarrassment is gone and women can discretely yet openly discuss their concerns with a qualified surgeon.

Surveys tell us that: 2 out of 5 women feel shame, are embarrassed or unhappy with the intimate places of their body.

I am in a league of qualified surgeons who are educating and arming you with the information that can empower you to get the medical attention you need and really want.  Today, we talk about what troubles you; then we choose the right options to address your concerns!  See my website for complete info: https://www.davinciplastic.com.

Vaginoplasty … addresses the problems aging women and women who have children by vaginal birth commonly endure…often for years and years.  

1) Vaginal looseness  2) Vaginal muscle laxity  3) Enlarged vaginal canal  4) Reduced sensation during sexual intimacy  5) Leaky Urine  6) Painful intercourse,  7) discomfort when wearing many types of clothing and during various activities   8) unhappy with appearance…enlarged labia, misshapen labial lips, hooded mons pubis, lost volume or too much volume and more.

Vaginoplasty surgery repairs vaginal damage from trauma (childbirth, tearing, etc), restores function and appearance which increases sexual stimulation and gratification.  Vaginal Rejuvenation surgery (Vaginoplasty)  enhances muscle tone and strength, decreases the diameter to that of a young, healthy, youthful size. The integrity of your vagina is restored.  Health is restored to your V Zone.  This energizes and empowers women daily as Moms and Wives.

The results are usually dramatic…giving back to women their function, eliminating discomfort, restoring self confidence and renewing self esteem.  Remember, your sexual partner benefits too!
