Vaginal Rejuvenation Procedures in Newport Beach
Many women seek vaginal rejuvenation surgery to improve or correct the functionality and appearance of their external genitals (which is referred to as vulva) and vagina. Dr. Yu offers various minimally invasive vaginal rejuvenation procedures to help women achieve a more comfortable, improved vulvar and vaginal areas.
Every woman has a different goal for vaginal rejuvenation. By choosing Dr. Yu for your surgery, you can feel confident that you are receiving care specifically tailored to your individual needs and concerns.
Labiaplasty surgery improves the size and shape of the labia minora (the inner “lips” of the external female genitalia). Enlarged labia minora can lead to discomfort during sex, exercise, and other daily activities. Further, wearing tight clothes can be extremely uncomfortable. Women who are unhappy with the size or shape of their labia minora can undergo labiaplasty to achieve a more pleasing, youthful appearance that allows for greater self-confidence and comfort.
Recovery and Results After Labiaplasty
After undergoing labiaplasty, most women can return to work within a week of resting. Sexual activity can often be resumed after four weeks or once cleared by your surgeon.
Labiaplasty results generally become visible once all of the swelling subsides. The resulting smaller, more youthful labia can last a lifetime.Learn More
Vaginal Reconstruction and Tightening
Pregnancy, childbirth, and natural aging can cause loosening of the vaginal canal. Further, a woman’s pelvic organs can fall out of place and begin to protrude into her vagina. This is a condition known as pelvic organ prolapse, and it can cause bladder and bowel dysfunction. You may be a candidate for anterior or posterior repair surgery if you are experiencing symptoms of pelvic organ prolapse.
Anterior and posterior repair is a type of vaginal reconstruction and tightening surgery that can correct pelvic organ prolapse by repositioning the fallen pelvic organs back in their original position and reinforcing the vaginal wall. This procedure tightens the vagina, eliminates pelvic organ prolapse, and facilitates the woman to regain control of her bladder and bowels.
Recovery and Results After Vaginal Reconstruction and Tightening
During recovery from anterior and posterior repair surgery, you should refrain from strenuous exercise and sexual activity for four to six weeks.
The benefits of vaginal reconstruction can last many years and even a lifetime with proper care and exercise.Learn More
Clitoral Hood Reduction
An enlarged clitoral hood can be uncomfortable during sex, during exercise, and in some clothing. Clitoral hood reduction surgery works to reduce the size of the clitoral hood by creating a horizontal incision to remove any excess tissue and reshape it. This procedure helps women achieve increased sexual pleasure and improved overall comfort by reducing the clitoral hood to a more manageable size.
Recovery and Results After Clitoral Hood Reduction
The downtime needed after clitoral hood reduction surgery is short, and you can return to work and other obligations within a week. However, you should discuss with your surgeon when it is safe to resume sexual activity.
One of the main benefits of clitoral hood reduction surgery is that results are generally permanent; the procedure does not need to be redone at a later time to maintain results.Learn More
In many cultures, an intact hymen is considered a sign of virginity since it often tears when a woman has sex for the first time. However, other factors can tear the hymen, such as wearing a tampon, exercising, or riding a bike. You may be a candidate for hymen restoration surgery if you have a torn hymen and wish to restore it for cultural, religious, or personal reasons.
Hymen restoration surgery takes a thin layer of tissue from the vaginal wall and attaches it to where the hymen originally was. This procedure provides women with an intact hymen that looks almost identical to the one that tore.
Recovery and Results After Hymen Restoration
Patients may experience some discomfort and light bleeding as they recover during the first few days after hymen restoration. Work and normal activities can be resumed after one to three days, but strenuous exercise should be avoided for at least two weeks.
The tissue placed where the hymen was will restore the appearance of the hymen. However, similar to your natural hymen, it can be broken by using tampons, sexual intercourse, and activities such as riding a bike or horse and certain sports. You should also keep in mind that not all women are born with a connected hymen, and hence, will not bleed with her first sexual experience.Learn More
Labia Majora Remodeling
Labia majora remodeling surgery provides women with tighter, smaller labia majora (outer vaginal “lips” or folds). You may be a candidate for labia majora remodeling if your large or puffy labia majora are apparent through clothing, cause irritation during sex or exercise, or make you self-conscious. Dr. Yu uses a small incision by the moral fold (the crease between your groin and upper thigh) to remove the excess skin and fat that causes the labia majora to appear puffy. Not all women with a puffy labia majora are candidates for this procedure. Please discuss this with your doctor.
Recovery and Results After Labia Majora Remodeling
Recovery from labia majora remodeling is short; women can often return to work and other obligations within a week. You should refrain from sex and other strenuous activity for four to six weeks.
The smaller, more slender labia majora after remodeling are intended to be long lasting, but pregnancy and weight gain may reverse your results as fat accumulates.Learn More
