Becoming increasingly popular as a cosmetic surgery procedure, vaginal rejuvenation (aka “designer vagina” surgery) is actually comprised of a number of procedures— rather like a mommy makeover—designed to nip and tuck the female genitalia.
Although some of the procedures can be singly carried out for medical purposes, they are also offered as a cosmetic package to women who are unhappy with their genitalia and want to change the look of it. Vaginal rejuvenation is a pick and mix approach, where the ultimate procedure is tailor-made to suit each individual patient.
Below is a list of the common procedures with a brief description of each one. You can find more in-depth information about vaginal rejuvenation here.
Vaginoplasty – This procedure tightens the vaginal wall at the entry point. Incisions are made inside the vagina so no scarring is visible from the outside.
Hymenoplasty – Also called hymen repair or ‘revirgination’. The hymen is the thin tissue at the entrance to the vagina which is ‘broken’ the first time a woman has intercourse. It can often be broken before that as a result of certain sporting activities, such as gymnastics, or horse-riding – or even from inserting a tampon.
Clitoropexy/Clitoral Hood Reduction/Clitoral unhooding – Repositions the clitoris and reduces or removes the clitoral hood.
Labiaplasty – Reduces the size of the labia (either the labia minora or labia majora).
G-spot amplification – The front wall of the vagina is where the G-spot is situated. G-spot amplification involves injecting collagen into the wall to increase pleasure.
Perineum and Pelvic Floor Repair – The perineum (the area between the vagina and anus) can sometimes become damaged during childbirth. A bad tear or poor stitching can leave the area disfigured after it has healed, causing embarrassment and sometimes discomfort during intercourse. Weakness in the pelvic floor may also lead to weakness in urinary function, causing incontinence. Surgery to improve the look and function of the area can help improve self-esteem enormously.
It’s difficult to say as it does depend on what procedures you have done. On average, it can take a couple of hours. However, depending on the results you want to achieve, not all of the procedures may be carried out in one session. Your surgeon will be able to give you a more precise timeframe upon initial consultation.
You will be sore after the surgery and be advised to lie on your stomach, rather than sit for a few days. If you don’t already have one, a small investment in a soft postoperative pillow will be well worth it; this can be used on the plane when you fly home, in the office, when driving, etc.
The stitches are usually dissolvable so you won’t have to worry about having them removed. Recovery from the surgery is fairly quick, and many people return to work after a week. You will need to take it easy, not lifting anything heavy or engaging in strenuous activity, sports, or sexual intercourse for six weeks.
The rise in medical tourism in Bangkok can be attributed to a number of factors, although it’s the significantly lower prices that make it worthwhile for the thousands of international patients who travel here for surgery each year.
In Bangkok, it’s not just about saving money; many patients are drawn by the professional, exclusive and discrete services available, with standards of care often better than what patients are used to back home.
Not everyone wants to broadcast why they are in hospital, which may be difficult to conceal when your nearest-and-dearest at home start asking questions. Traveling abroad gives you that added privacy, as well as the time to recuperate afterward in reasonable anonymity.
So-called designer vagina procedures are on the rise in the west, and it’s far more common than many people assume. Just as capable of performing these procedures, the Thai doctors we work with have extensive training and all the necessary expertise to help you get the results you want.
In highly modern clinics and hospitals with attentive staff and all mod-cons available to make your stay as luxurious and stress-free as possible, you’ll find Bangkok offers excellent quality, as well as all the amenities and services you need for an enjoyable visit.
You do need to have realistic expectations in terms of the outcome of the procedure, as well as do your own research beforehand. We can’t underline enough the importance of checking out the credentials of prospective surgeons and clinics and choosing wisely.
Medical Departures performs background-checks on all of the clinics and doctors you see listed on our site. We conduct onsite visits, look for criminal/legal proceedings, confirm qualifications, professional registrations and international memberships and collate patient testimonials.
