Ageing and vaginal delivery leads to reduction in tone of pelvic and vaginal musculature and dryness due to hormonal imbalance which lead to painful intercourse and may lead to sexual dissatisfaction. Non-invasive modalities such as Femilift or viveve.
Both are office-based procedures done in local anesthesia.
Clients may feel some burning sensation or discomfort during procedure.
Thise energy based vaginal rejuvenation devices use thermal energy to ablate outer layer of mucosa in a controlled manner. Thus, when it heals it results in increased collagen formation, increase blood flow and reduce dryness

Multiple child birth and ageing leads to lax vaginal wall with excess mucosa. There may be a perineal dehiscence which results in loose vagina. Cosmetic vaginoplasty or colporrhaphy involves removing of excess mucosa form any of 4 walls of vagina most commonly posterior wall with tightening of the vaginal musculature. Thus, the diameter of the canal is reduced with improved muscle functioning.
The technique is relatively simple and is done under local anesthesia. It is a day care procedure and shown to heighten the sexual pleasure and performance
Labiaplasty is a cosmetic genital procedure which results in improvement in labia minora the inner lining of the external genitalia. It is the second most common vaginal rejuvenation procedure.
Excess labial minora results in twisting and tugging during cycling, sexual intercourse and other activities resulting in pain. It may lead to irritation itching and self-consciousness.
It is a day care procedure which is done under local anesthesia where excess labia minora is trimmed or resected in a wedge shape so that it will get a natural appearance. Clitoral hood is also reduced.
Patient can resume their work by week. Icepacks are used to reduce the swelling. They can resume sexual intercourse by 4 weeks. Some edema may remain till 12 weeks.
