Vaginal Rejuvenation Surgery Facts
Vaginal rejuvenation surgery is pretty much just a fancy way of describing what's intended to amount to a vaginal tune-up. They can be done for various reasons, but this article is going to focus on those women who want to improve the quality of their intimate relationships. If you've found this article by Googling this procedure, you're probably either a woman who'd like to tighten up the vaginal canal, a woman who's simply curious about the procedure itself, or a man who probably ought to be doing something else entirely. If you're a member of the first group, keep reading and I will explain the pros and cons of the treatment. If you're a member of the last group, get a life!
What is vaginal rejuvenation surgery?
Unlike traditional vaginoplasty (which can cover all sorts of constructive and reconstructive surgeries) vaginal rejuvenation is typically meant to tighten things up once they've started to get a bit wobbly or loose. If you've had a few kids, for example, you might feel as though your vaginal canal isn't as elastic as it used to be and you may wish to reel it back in. Vaginal rejuvenation surgery can help you do that, whether it be via old fashioned surgical options or the more modern laser procedures.
Is it dangerous?
Traditional surgery is fairly safe and documented. Some say that laser surgery is just as safe but there isn't a good deal of data from which to draw a clear conclusion. That said, there are risks with any type of surgery, the least of which may not be having to undergo anesthesia.

What happens during laser vaginal rejuvenation?
Most clinics offer this as a one-hour outpatient surgery. Basically what your doctor will do is tighten up the vaginal muscles and then remove the excess skin. When done via laser surgery there's usually very little blood involved. When done via a traditional type of surgery, there's going to be a bit more, obviously. In most cases, you'll have the procedure while under a general anesthetic either way.
What will it look like afterward?
If you're only having a vaginal rejuvenation procedure done, that will have taken place inside the vagina so you shouldn't be able to spot any changes visually. Many women chose to include labiaplasty or other cosmetic procedures at the same time, and obviously those would be meant to change the external appearance as well.
Is this going to hurt?
Of course it is, but it shouldn't be debilitating pain. You might have some discomfort during the first few days of post-op, but many women get right back to work that same week.
How will this affect things in the bedroom?
Firstly, it's important to note that you will not be able to knock boots for a good month or so following surgery. Once you've healed, you should notice an increase of friction during intimacy, which is necessary for maximum enjoyment, so the idea is that things will improve greatly. This is not a guarantee of surgery, however, and everyone's results will be a little bit different.
