The Truth About Vaginal Rejuvenation
The term “vaginal rejuvenation” has gained popularity in recent years, describing cosmetic vaginal reconstruction procedures popular among middle-aged women. In many cases, women experience societal pressure to fit a specific model of physical beauty, leading many surgeons to offer procedures addressing the cosmetic aspects of vaginal repair.
The common cosmetic procedure is described by some as a “quick fix.” It uses a heated laser-base probe, which heats tissues to shrink and tighten the vagina. It is not, however, a procedure Plano OB-GYN Dr. Chris Kuhne wishes to be associated with.
“The procedure most doctors and patients associate with the term ‘vaginal rejuvenation’ is really just an easy alternative to the ‘gold standard,’ which is the actual art of surgical vaginal repair,” said Dr. Kuhne, who has provided obstetric and gynecologic care to women in the DFW area for more than two decades.
Dr. Kuhne performs anterior and posterior vaginal repair with urethropexy. Much more than just an aesthetic upgrade, this type of vaginal repair functionally rejuvenates the vagina by restoring the supportive tissue underlying the vagina without altering the composition of that supported tissue with heat.
“I tell patients it’s like the difference between a plastic surgeon carefully reshaping your anatomy versus a five-minute procedure with a laser probe using heat to shrink the tissue,” he added.
Benefits of anterior and posterior vaginal repair with urethropexy include:
- Restoration of vaginal laxity due to childbirth
- Narrowing of the vagina to pre-childbirth condition
- Repair of urinary stress incontinence resulting from vaginal birth
