Vaginal rejuvenation is an umbrella term for procedures that are performed for either cosmetic reasons or to address age-related problems such as vaginal tightness.
There are a number of different reasons why women choose to undergo vaginal rejuvenation, which is why there are several procedures that fall under this category.
- Types of Vaginal Rejuvenation
1. Labia Majoraplasty
As the name suggests, a labia majoraplasty focuses on the labia majora. During the procedure, excess skin, fat and tissue are removed from the labia majora. Enlarged labia majora can make it difficult to wear tight-fitting clothing because it creates a bulge. Weight loss, age and childbirth can all affect the labia majora but surgery can make it more aesthetically pleasing once again.
Labiaplasty focuses on the labia minora. During the procedure, any excess skin and tissue is trimmed away from the labia minora, after which the incisions are sutured. This procedure is designed to relieve discomfort and reduce the embarrassment experienced due to drooping labia minora. The surgery only requires a local anesthetic but a general anesthetic can be used if necessary. Since the sutures will dissolve on their own, there’s no need to return for a follow-up visit unless it’s absolutely necessary.

This procedure is designed to tone and tighten the walls of the vaginal canal as well as the opening of the vagina. This is the procedure that’s most often referred to as vaginal rejuvenation. Women choose to undergo this procedure after childbirth but it’s also a popular procedure amongst older women who want to tighten the vagina and experience more sensitivity during intercourse.
4. Clitoral Hood Reduction
While this procedure can be performed on its own, it’s generally performed at the same time as a labiaplasty. During the surgery, excess skin is trimmed away from the clitoris in order to improve its appearance and increase sensitivity. If clitoral hood reduction is paired with labiaplasty, there are a number of different incision techniques that can be used.
Lastly, monsplasty is another procedure that falls into the category of vaginal rejuvenation. During the surgery, a surgeon will trim away excess fat and skin in the mons pubis, while also tightening and lifting the muscle and tissues in this area. The procedure is designed to make the mons pubis look smaller and more natural. In some instances, this procedure is recommended for urinary function improvement.
