Sex is about more than just pleasure. A healthy sex life can boost your immune system, increase feel-good hormones like endorphins, and enhance your emotional connection with your partner. But, many women suffer a decreased libido because of changes to their vaginal appearance and health due to childbirth, aging, and menopause. In fact, more than 40% of women report sexual dysfunction.
Problems can include vaginal laxity, painful sex, and loose skin. Fortunately, there are many ways to address vaginal and sexual health. Vaginal rejuvenation is a collective term for a variety of procedures and surgeries that can improve your vagina’s cosmetic appearance and function.
At Female Health Associates of North Texas, fellowship-trained urogynecologist Dr. Jeffrey M. Hantes offers a wide range of advanced in-office vaginal revitalization techniques, addressing your concerns, needs, and goals. These procedures can help rev up your sex life and make you feel confident and comfortable with your vaginal health and appearance. Here are some of the vaginal rejuvenation procedures that Dr. Hantes can perform to help boost your sex life:
Vaginoplasty is a surgical procedure to repair the vaginal canal. Your vaginal canal can become damaged due to childbirth, congenital vaginal abnormalities, or cancer treatment.
During a vaginoplasty, Dr. Hantes removes excess vaginal tissue or muscles to tighten the vagina. Women undergo vaginoplasty for different reasons. Two of them are to improve the appearance of your vaginal area and to boost sexual confidence.
During a labiaplasty, Dr. Hantes removes excess skin from the labia minora, the small lips of the interior vagina, or the labia majora, the larger, outer vaginal lips.
Removing excess skin can help prevent irritation and pain caused by the excess skin getting caught in zippers or chafing against clothing. In addition, a labiaplasty procedure can help improve the appearance of your vaginal area, boosting confidence and comfort during intimacy.
Body parts come in all sizes and shapes. Some women have extra large hoods that cover their clitoris. While a hood protects and covers your clitoris, a large one can interfere with sexual pleasure. A clitoral hood reduction removes excess skin to improve the appearance of your clitoris and also increase sexual sensitivity and enjoyment.
