Nature, gravity, childbirth, genetics, age, and chronic pelvic health issues can cause undesirable or painful changes to the female vaginal anatomy. Aesthetic Gynecology includes procedures aimed at enhancing the appearance and attractiveness of female genital organs and, consequently, leading to greater self-confidence and the improvement of their sexual functions.
Many women experience vaginal laxity after childbirth, which can impact self-confidence. Vaginal laxity is when a woman’s vaginal canal loses its ability to stretch back to its original shape, leaving the vagina feeling wider and more “loose”.
Vaginal constriction causes the vagina to seem unusually small or constricted.
Labial enlargement, also known as labial hypertrophy, is characterized by the enlargement of the inner or outer labia. It can either affect one or both sides of the labia.
Hymen disruption is a condition in which the hymen, a thin membrane, obstructs the opening of the vagina.
Scar formation around the vaginal area can occur as the result of various factors, including childbirth and intercouse.
Labial atrophy, or vulvovaginal atrophy (VVA), is a common condition causing dryness, itching, or discomfort of the labia.
Dr. Guerette recommends the diVa non-surgical laser treatment by Sciton® for women who want incredible results and a procedure that fits within their schedule. diVa is a quick five minute procedure that provides beautiful results without the pain or downtime of a major surgery.
Vaginal tightening, or vaginoplasty, is a procedure performed to help tighten the vagina by strengthening the muscles after childbirth or some other trauma.
Women who have asymmetric, loose, or enlarged labia often struggle with feeling self-conscious about their body while wearing form-fitting clothing or during sexual intimacy with her partner. Labiaplasty is performed to help with labial enlargement, skin laxity, or to create balance for women who have asymmetrical labia.
Dr. Guerette can perform surgery to reduce the size of the clitoral hood. This procedure is performed to expose the clitoris for aesthetic purposes, as well as to improve stimulation during intercourse.
Dr. Guerette can perform a personalized surgical procedure to reconstruct or repair the hymen, the thin membrane associated with a woman’s virginity when in tact.
A scar revision procedure can be performed to reduce the appearance of a scar resulting from childbirth, intercourse, and other factors.
