Cosmetic surgery in general has steadily increased in popularity worldwide, with procedures that were once seen as taboo now commonly requested. Vaginal rejuvenation is one of the procedures least talked about, yet growing numbers of women have chosen to undergo this procedure at my clinic in Nairobi.
“Designer vagina” is the collective term for any cosmetic surgical procedure performed on the vagina, with the aim of improving its shape, size and ultimately, its function. In a way patients see this as a means to rejuvenate their vagina, an area they want to see improved or at least go back as they knew it before giving birth.
Procedures in this area that we commonly perform at the Vitality Fountain Clinic include labiaplasty and vaginal tightening, collectively known as vaginoplasty.
The spectrum of surgeries range from corrective vaginal surgery due to birthtrauma (e.g. tears causing scars and loose tissues) to reduction of the labia minora (the inner lips) which might be too large and cause discomfort and pain, e.g. during sports or intercourse, or chafing from your underwear or clothing. In these cases surgery improves not only the shape, but also relieves womans’ problems they are facing due to their conditions.
On the other end of the spectrum are ops aimed to purely improve the look and feel of the patients’ vaginas. In these cases, the desire to improve the aesthetic aspect of this body region plays an important role in the woman’s psychological well being which will come with a higher self esteem, more confidence and joy during sexual encounters, and an improved self image.
Labia minora reduction surgery or labiaplasty is a surgical procedure meant to reduce the size or change the shape of a woman’s labia minora (the inner vaginal lips). It is often performed on women who feel that their labia minora are uneven or too large. Enlarged labia minora can be a medical condition known as labial hypertrophy, which cause discomfort while performing certain activities like riding horses, cycling, walking or wearing tight clothing as well as embarrassment with a sexual partner or pain during sexual intercourse.
Large labia can be caused by childbirth, age, and hormonal changes, or it may simply be present from birth.
Labia minora reduction surgery does not mean that the enlarged labia is removed altogether. Instead, the labia minora are contoured, reshaped, and reduced in size with as little cutting as possible – to the desired shape. We will discuss with you beforehand the exact shape and size you will desire.
This day case procedure is carefully undertaken whilst the patient is under local anaesthetic, with almost no downtime. Sometimes it can be combined with a vaginal tightening procedure – a vaginoplasty.
After child birth or due to aging, loss of elasticity and volume in and around your vagina causes the tissues to become loose and less tight and you might feel that you need it to be “tighten up” – a vaginoplasty using fatgrafting performed by Dr Stasch can offer a solution. With your own fat (lipofilling), the tissues are replaced in order to fill and tighten the outside and also inside of your vaginal wall, tissues and skin.
This “vaginal rejuvenation” and “designer vagina” procedure is very common but often not talked about, because it is a very private issue which women decide for themselves to undergo such a procedure, without even mentioning it to their closest friends.
We often perform vaginoplasty with or without labiaplasty as part of other procedures (like mummy makeover or liposuction), or simply as a standalone-procedure.
