Cosmetic Gynecology and related treatments in the pelvis region are becoming the order of the day with women being very definitive about what they want. If they are uncomfortable with huge labia or a loose vagina or even about excess fat in the hip they approach our clinic and ask for laser vaginal or labial reconstruction.
Laser Labial Cosmetic Surgery
Labia are folds that cover the vaginal opening. They are the labia majora and the labia minora. These folds protect the vaginal opening and also have sweat glands that serve to secrete. Sometimes these folds may be large and unsightly. Also they may be floppy and get wet every time the woman urinates. This might be a problem for some women who might want to get that corrected. Laser labial surgery helps in cosmetic and functional correction of the labium majus and rarely the labium minus. This is a day care procedure, minimally invasive and done pain free.
Laser Hymenal Reconstruction
The Hymenal opening is the opening into the vagina. The hymen is a thin sheet of membrane that guards the opening into the vagina in virgins. After sexual intercourse the hymen gets torn/ avulsed and remnants remain in the form of caruncule myrtiformis.
Some women might request reconstruction of the Hymen for religious as well as marital reasons. The procedure is done with the Ho Yag laser under local Anaesthesia. The patient returns home in 2 hours as it is a completely painless procedure.
Laser Vaginal Tightening
Many women complain of decreased sexual satisfaction as they are not able to feel their partners penis because of the increased laxity of their vagina. This results as the muscles in the pelvic floor get splayed because of vaginal delivery. Assisted deliveries like forceps/vacuum deliveries create havoc and add insult to injury. This can be corrected by laser repair /laser perineoplasty of the vagina. This is a minimally invasive technique done under regional anaesthesia using the holmium laser. It is usually day care and under regional anaesthesia. The laser is of tremendous help in this particular procedure. The splayed muscles are separated and later approximated tightening the introitus and creating a new vagina.
Laser Tummy Tuck
Tummy tuck is a procedure also known as abdominoplasty. This is usually done for women with overhanging sheats of fat in the abdominal area. These women are fairly slim in the other areas of the body, but however harbor a lot of fat in the abdomen. This fat deposition does not come down in spite of exercises. The Holmium laser is used with good effect in this procedure. It can be combined with liposuction in a procedure known as laser liposuction. The scar is virtually nonexistent and the procedure is totally pain free or very minimal pain.
