Life has many ups and downs, and as we move through the years, change is the only constant we experience. Our bodies are no strangers to that change! In fact, our bodies are almost constantly changing, sometimes not for the better. Many women find themselves in challenging situations, suffering discomfort and pain as they get older. Whether it’s a result of having children, going through menopause, or even chemotherapy, a woman’s sexual life can be negatively impacted. While women have struggled in silence for a long time and still do today, they actually have options for improving their quality of life. The Mona Lisa Touch procedure we offer is one of them.
Cosmetic gynecology is the answer to many of the issues that women face as they get older. It is a rapidly-growing field of treatment focused on improving the function of and appearance of the female genital area. Whether you’re embarrassed about your genital area or having a difficulty with its function, cosmetic gynecology can help by restoring tightness, delivering symmetry, and reducing expanded structures. In today’s blog, we want to give a brief overview of the main areas of cosmetic gynecology, especially the revolutionary Mona Lisa Touch.
This procedure is one of the oldest cosmetic gynecology procedures. It delivers aesthetics and practical benefits by making a woman’s labia into her desired shape. Not only does labiaplasty increase a woman’s confidence, it greatly reduces the discomfort that happens when inner labia extend beyond the outer labia, a condition called labia hypertrophy.
Vaginoplasty is a general term covering multiple different procedures created to enhance the vagina. Though there are several different procedures, the following are the most popular:
- This procedure addresses the rounded skin and tissue that cover the pubic bones, called the mons pubis. In some women, the mons pubis builds up enough fatty tissue that it seems to bulge. This can make the women uncomfortable and embarrassed. Vulvar lipoplasty uses liposuction to remove pockets of fat and to give the area a smoother, more attractive space.
- In this surgical operation, the thin tissue by the vaginal opening is repaired to unbroken condition. It is also called “revirgination,” but this term is inaccurate because the hymen can be broken by activity other than sexual intercourse. A broken hymen does not mean a woman has had sex.
- This treatment has its roots in surgery. It was used for repairing weak vaginal walls as well as incontinence. The surgery tightens the vagina, generally leading to increased sexual satisfaction for the patient and her partner. Vaginal rejuvenation has been developed by cosmetic gynecologists to simply address the strength and tightness of the vaginal muscles. Today’s vaginal rejuvenation is generally less invasive. The Mona Lisa Touch is the most effective form of vaginal rejuvenation, and at Sarasota Cosmetic Gynecology, we are proud to offer women this gentle treatment and the amazing results it provides.
