FEMALE GENITAL SURGERIES
Advanced Surgical Techniques
The term Female genital Cosmetic Surgeries (GCS) covers several different procedures. It is sometimes called female genital plastic surgery, female genital rejuvenation surgery, female genital cosmetic surgery.
There are several procedures that come under the term GCS. They include labiaplasty – This involves surgery to the labia minora (inner lips) and less frequently, the labia majora(outer lips). Labiaplasty of the labia minora is the most commonly performed GCS procedure. It generally involves reducing the size of the inner lips so they do not protrude below the outer lips. It is also used to correct asymmetry of the lips, where one lip is significantly different in size/length to the other. Some women have labiaplasty because their labia cause them chafing, irritation and also limit their participation in activities such as bike riding. However, many women also undergo labiaplasty because they are embarrassed about the appearance of their labia.
Hymenoplasty – This procedure reconstructs the hymen (the thin membrane of skin that partially covers the vaginal entrance in a virgin). The edges of the torn hymen are reconnected so that when sexual intercourse takes place the membrane will tear and bleed. While hymenoplasty is predominantly performed for religious or cultural reasons, it is also being promoted as ‘re-virgination’, for women who want to give their partner the ‘gift’ of their virginity.
Vulval lipoplasty – This procedure involves the use of liposuction to remove fat deposits from the mons pubis (the pad of fatty tissue covered by pubic hair). This results in the mons pubis being less prominent.
G-spot augmentation – This procedure involves injecting a substance such as a collagen into the G-spot in order to enhance its size and, therefore, theoretically also a woman’s sexual pleasure. The effects will last 3-4 months on average after which the procedure needs to be repeated.
Clitoral hood reduction – This procedure involves reducing the hood of skin which surrounds the clitoris, exposing the glans (or head) of the clitoris that lies underneath. A clitoral hood reduction is aimed at providing more stimulation, therefore, heightening a woman’s sexual pleasure. The procedure is also known as hoodectomy.
(i) Genital Rejuvenation(mommy Makeover) -A mommy makeover is a great way to get your pre-pregnancy body back. Motherhood can take a toll on a woman’s body both externally and internally. Patients can combine vaginal rejuvenation with other cosmetic surgeries to improve their breasts and body contours following pregnancy and childbirth.This involves tightening the inside of the vagina and the vaginal opening by removing excess tissue from the vaginal lining. It effectively results in a vagina with a smaller diameter. Genital Rejuvenation is often promoted as a solution for women who have experienced a loss of vaginal tone due to childbirth. It is also referred to as ‘vaginal rejuvenation’
(ii) Vaginal Surgeries –Vaginal Surgery is a procedure which is carried out with the aim of “tightening” the vagina, reinstating strength, tone and control of the vaginal muscles. Concerns about the look and feel of your vagina are common, particularly following the ageing process or after childbirth, where the vagina has experienced some trauma.
Vaginal rejuvenation helps to rebuild the pelvic floor where the vaginal tissues and muscles have been stretched. It is also used to reconstruct the area at perineum the vaginal entrance, helping to strengthen these muscles and reduce laxity. In recent times, vaginal surgery, has increased in popularity.
(iii) labia Surgeries-Many women are uncomfortable with their enlarged labia minora (the inner lips that surround the vaginal opening) and labia majora (the outer lips), which can lead to self-consciousness and discomfort while wearing clothing, exercising, or having sex. A labia surgery may involve sculpting down the labia minora, the labia majora.Labia majora augmentation – This procedure seeks to plump up the outer lips by injecting them with fatty tissue taken from another part of the woman’s body.The goal of labia surgery is to remove any functional problems which may exist, whilst creating labia that is aesthetically pleasing. Many women seek symmetry or a decrease in the size of the labia. labia surgery can be performed in conjunction with a vagino surgery, which is the “tightening” of the vagina.
