One of the fasted growing segments of cosmetic surgery today is being whispered about, written about and talked about AND it’s on a part of the body that is rarely seen. We’re talking about vaginal enhancement or intimate aesthetics: the new field of Cosmetic Gynecology.
Cosmetic Gynecology is a new sub-specialty that blends plastic surgery and gynecology. Cosmetic Gynecology or Intimate Aesthetic Surgery is a group of procedures that are cosmetic in nature and not medically necessary. They are performed to enhance the look and function of the outer vulva and inner vagina. It often includes liposuction services. The most popular procedures are Laser Reduction Labiaplasty, Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation®, and of course, the G-Shot® shot.
I first began getting curious about Vaginal Rejuvenation and Cosmetic Gynecology while visiting my stepdaughter in Los Angeles in 2006. I began seeing billboards and ads in magazines and newspapers that were offering procedures to women that claimed it would enhance sexual gratification. Seems like every woman out there knew or had heard of Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation and yet I had never heard of it and I had been a Gyn surgeon for over 15 years! Once home, I began researching and finding and reading everything I could on the subject. I realized there were finally solutions for women that had come to me and told me in confidence that sex for them was not as good after they had their babies. They couldn’t feel their partners any more. And I didn’t have anything to offer but kegels. I realized what an empowering option this was to offer my patients so I went back to Beverly Hills and trained at the Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation Institute of America by the founder and designer of these procedures, David Matlock, MD, MBA in 2007 to become an expert in Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation, Cosmetic Gynecology and Intimate Aesthetic Surgery.
