Cosmetic gynecology offers women the chance to alter aspects of their genitalia to enhance appearance or pleasure. There are both surgical and non-surgical treatments available.
Available cosmetic gynecology procedures include:
This procedure reduces the size of the external folds of skin that surround your vulva. Some women experience changes in this area after childbirth. For others, issues with the size of their labia majora or asymmetry are the motivating factor.
This procedure alters the size of the folds of skin alongside your clitoris and vaginal opening. Everyone’s anatomy is different, and some women feel their labia minora are too large. Large or protruding labia minora can make it uncomfortable to wear tight clothing, and can also cause difficulties during sex.
The skin above your clitoris protects this sensitive area of your body. Some women have a second structure in this location, and find the additional skin unappealing in an aesthetic sense. Surgical removal does not alter the appearance or sensitivity of the clitoris.
For many women, the aesthetics of their genitalia are directly tied to how comfortable they are during sexual encounters. Cosmetic gynecology offers a way to alter this area of your body to more closely align with your personal aesthetic goals.
Over time, the tissue that lines your vagina thins and weakens. Childbirth can accelerate this process. Vaginal dryness can also become an issue as you age. Vaginal laxity is a loss of the elasticity and tone in your vagina.
The combined effect of these changes can be decreased enjoyment during sex. The Elite OB/GYN team use the MonaLisa Touch® system to perform vaginal rejuvenation procedures. This platform is a fractional CO2 laser that delivers controlled energy to the tissues within your vagina.
Treatments stimulate your body’s natural healing response, triggering new production of collagen. Your vaginal lining can become thicker, reducing discomfort and irritation. The procedure may also restore normal vaginal moisture levels.
MonaLisa Touch treatments are not painful. There’s no need for anesthesia, no discomfort during or after treatments, and no recovery time needed. Appointments take less than 30 minutes.
Your specialist inserts a treatment probe into your vagina, which delivers the laser energy exactly where needed. Many women report feeling a sensation of warmth during treatments.
