Surgical vaginal rejuvenation is the traditional method of vaginal tightening. But with the invention of THERMIva® vaginal rejuvenation, which uses radiofrequency energy to naturally tighten the vaginal tissues, many patients no longer go through surgery for vaginal tightening. Vaginal rejuvenation with THERMIva® requires significantly less downtime than its surgical alternative and, as a pain-free procedure, doesn’t require anesthesia.
That said, surgical vaginal rejuvenation can produce superior results for some patients. Here, we’ll discuss when surgical vaginal rejuvenation might be warranted for relief from vaginal laxity.
When To Consider Surgical Vaginal Rejuvenation
Surgical vaginal rejuvenation may be the right treatment option for you if:
Vaginal Laxity Is Severe.
While THERMIva® vaginal rejuvenation is a natural method of vaginal tightening, its results may not be sufficient for cases of severe vaginal laxity or pelvic organ prolapse. When the vaginal tissues have been extremely stretched in one or multiple childbirths or severely loosened due to hormonal factors, women may struggle with symptoms like sexual dysfunction and stress urinary incontinence. These symptoms can interfere with women’s day-to-day lives and self-confidence.
You’re Done Having Children.
Traditional vaginoplasty is recommended for women after they’re done having children. The results of this procedure will more effectively remain intact if you don’t undergo childbirth in the future. For women who may want to have more children, however, THERMIva® vaginal rejuvenation is a great option.
You Want To Avoid Touch-Up Treatments.
Results from THERMIva® non surgical vaginal rejuvenation last for approximately a year. After this timeframe, patients may need touch-up treatments one to two times per year to keep up with their results. The results of surgical vaginal rejuvenation, on the other hand, can last for many years.
