Labiaplasty refers to corrective plastic surgery of the vaginal area and in its cosmetic purpose. It is commonly performed for tightening and reshaping the vaginal area. Commonly it is referred to as vaginal rejuvenation surgery. However, surgery is an invasive procedure with considerable cost, recovery time and risk. This is why some people choose non-invasive alternatives to labiaplasty. Two of the most common non-invasive alternatives to labiaplasty include:
These are special exercises that are recommended for women who are suffering from distended vaginal lips, loss of pelvic muscle strength and overall loss of vaginal skin elasticity. Kegel Exercises are a holistic approach; they are directed at all the core muscle groups that affect the vaginal tissue. This includes the pelvic muscles that tend to weaken due to aging, childbirth, and conditions such as uterine prolapse. Weakening of pelvic muscles is very common among post-menopausal women, who are among the most common of women seeking a surgical labiaplasty. At Weight Loss and Vitality, we use the BTL Emsella Device. The Emsella performs over 11,000 pelvic floor contractions in 28 minutes. The first device of its kind and FDA cleared for treating urinary incontinence, the Emsella is a chair that uses a high-intensity electromagnetic field to activate motor neuron in the pelvic floor. While this type of treatment is non-invasive, it offers deep penetration into the targeted tissues of the pelvic floor and stimulates the muscles. In as few as 3 weeks, patients strongly agree with their incidence of stress urinary incontinence was improved by 98%!
