Non-Surgical Alternatives to Labiaplasty By Anya Kishinevsky, M.D. on January 08, 2018

A woman in a bikini bottomDr. Anya Kishinevsky has a long history of achieving excellent results and providing compassionate patient care. Part of this is because she’s a woman who practices plastic surgery and cosmetic skin care. Gender can make a difference when it comes to planning procedures and creating great results, especially for women. Labiaplasty, for instance, requires an intuitive understanding of aesthetics and a woman’s anatomy that many men simply don’t have.

While labiaplasty is effective for improving the appearance of the vagina, there are alternatives we can consider at our Fairfield, CT and Norwalk, CT offices that do not involve surgery. Let’s explore these matter below.

Why Labiaplasty May Not Be an Option

Even though labiaplasty can alter the prominence of the labia and improve overall appearance, some women may prefer to avoid surgery. Surgeries always carry some degree of risk, and some patients would prefer to avoid potential complications. Some women may have certain conditions that make labiaplasty a poor option overall, in which case an alternative approach is necessary.

We’ll always be willing to discuss various treatments with patients that can improve their appearance, self-confidence, and body image. Our offices are spaces for open communication about what you want and how we can help you achieve it.

Kegel Exercises

Kegel exercises are ideal for women who’ve experienced a loss in elasticity of their vaginal skin as well as distended vaginal lips. These exercises can help strengthen the muscles that form the pelvic floor. In addition to potential aesthetic benefits, Kegel exercises can help address issues with incontinence and prevent urinary tract infections.

Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation

Another option to consider is laser vaginal rejuvenation. These procedures are designed more to address the muscle strength and tone of the vagina itself, though it can have some positive benefits with regard to the appearance of the labia as well as the exterior appearance of the vagina. Patients will experience improved vaginal tightness, which can enhance sensation during intercourse.

Thermal Energy Therapy

Thermal energy therapy is quite effective at treating the muscles and soft tissues of the vagina, which includes the labia minora and labia majora. The thermal energy helps stimulate healthy collagen growth. As with laser vaginal rejuvenation, this results in improved appearance as well as enhanced vaginal tightness and sensation during sexual intercourse.

The Benefits of Non-Surgical Vaginal Treatments

There are many benefits to undergoing these non-surgical treatments for vaginal enhancement:

  • Little to No Downtime - Thanks to these non-surgical procedures, women can experience the benefits similar to labiaplasty without taking time off from work. Following treatment, normal activities can typically be resumed, which includes sexual activities and intercourse.
  • Fewer Risks and Complications - These non-surgical procedures reduce the chances of serious complications occurring, meaning that patients tend to experience fewer worries during treatment and as they are recovering.
  • Improved Self-Image - Any hang-ups or self-consciousness about a woman’s appearance can be reduced if not eliminated thanks to these vaginal rejuvenation procedures. This can improve self-image and body issues one might experience, and can make moments of intimacy more relaxed and enjoyable.
