Nonsurgical vulvar procedures embrace microneedling, labial and G-zone fillers, platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) injections, laser vaginal rejuvenation (to tighten and thicken the vaginal wall), and Cliovana™largely.
I developed and perfected the Vagilangelo process, which is a minimally invasive technique for tightening broken vaginal tissue and muscle. Step one of this 2-step process includes vaginal and G-zone enhancement by PRP injection. I then restore vaginal angle and tightness with just a few inside sutures beneath native anesthesia.
♡ Stroll us by the method of pre, throughout & put up surgical procedure. What does the whole course of entail?
AM: Earlier than surgical procedure, I conduct an entire historical past and bodily examination in my workplace. I sit down with the affected person to get to know them, and to grasp their targets for surgical procedure. I’ve a radical consent course of, which includes exhibiting the affected person that, except for just a few medical circumstances, every vulva and vagina are good the best way they’re!
We assessment many images of what a standard vulva seems to be like (my sufferers are sometimes stunned on the variation, and the big selection of “regular”). As a result of beauty surgical procedure is as a lot an artwork as it’s a science, I take many “earlier than” images. After I assessment the images, the affected person and I give you a plan for surgical procedure.
On surgical procedure day, the affected person is dropped at the surgical procedure middle. They’re positioned beneath basic anesthesia whereas I function.
After surgical procedure, they’re taken to the restoration room, the place they look forward to 1 hour whereas the anesthesia wears off. They’re able to go residence the identical day. I give every affected person my mobile phone quantity, they usually can name or textual content at any time with questions.
♡ How dangerous does it harm? Be trustworthy!
AM: A lot of the nonsurgical vulvar procedures solely contain a fast needle pinch.
We carry out many of the surgical procedures beneath a light-weight basic anesthesia, and apply numbing remedy to the realm. Sufferers solely really feel minimal ache after they go to the restoration room. After they get residence, not a lot ache remedy is required – Motrin is normally ample and typically sufferers don’t even take that.
♡ Are you able to share a tremendous success story with us?
AM: A 32-year-old lady requested a session with our gynecologic surgical procedure apply. She endorsed low vanity as a result of labial enlargement and asymmetry. Because of this, she was reluctant to have sexual activity together with her accomplice. After being introduced with totally different surgical choices and educated in regards to the big selection of regular labial sizes, she was assured that labiaplasty was the best choice for her. She underwent bilateral labiaplasty and posterior vaginal restore. After restoration, she reported a dramatic enchancment in her vanity, sexual functioning, and general wellness.

Labial publicity whereas carrying a washing swimsuit.
Decreased self-confidence and vanity (researchers confirmed that this could typically result in decreased sexual intimacy).
♡ Clarify to us the totally different components of the vagina and what components individuals normally prefer to have revamped.
AM: Individuals normally use the time period vagina to explain the whole feminine genital space. In actuality, the phrase vulva is the extra correct time period to explain this whole space. The vulva contains the mons pubis, labia majora (“outer lips”), labia minora (“interior lips”), vaginal opening, clitoris, and vestibular glands (these produce fluid to lubricate the vagina and urethra).
The vagina is separate from the vulva. It’s the elastic, muscular canal that extends from the vulva to the cervix.
The G-Zone (previously generally known as G-Spot) is a delicate space situated within the anterior vaginal wall. A latest analysis examine revealed that the delicate space isn’t really a focal “spot,” however a “zone” of 5 tissues concerned in sexual pleasure (clitoral crura, clitoral bulb, periurethral glands, urethra, and anterior vaginal wall) (Metro UK analysis writeup).
The labia majora and/or labia minora will be gotten smaller with labiaplasty. Fillers will also be injected into the labia majora and minora. Clitoral hood discount is one other in style beauty surgical procedure. Vaginoplasty includes surgical procedure on the vagina.
Nonsurgical vulvar procedures embrace microneedling, labial and G-zone fillers, platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) injections, laser vaginal rejuvenation (to tighten and thicken the vaginal wall), and Cliovana™.
I developed and perfected the Vagilangelo process, which is a minimally invasive technique for tightening broken vaginal muscle tissue. Step one of this 2-step process includes vaginal and G-zone enhancement by PRP injection. I then restore vaginal tightness with just a few inside sutures beneath native anesthesia.
♡ Do kegels and pelvic ground workout routines actually work?
AM: They do! The pelvic ground is made up of a number of advanced muscle tissue. Like all muscle exercise, pelvic ground workout routines (also referred to as Kegels) strengthen the pelvic ground. A analysis examine confirmed that girls with stronger pelvic ground muscle tissue have higher sexual perform (Martinez et al 2014). The precise cause for that is unclear, however my analysis accomplice, Dr. Kimberly Lovie, and I hope to search out the reply by our analysis. We’ve ultrasound movies of the clitoris throughout Kegel workout routines. The ultrasound reveals that in Kegel workout routines, blood stream to the clitoris will increase!
Kegels also can enhance signs of urinary and fecal incontinence, and pelvic organ prolapse, for each women and men.
♡ What’s one factor you would like individuals knew extra about with regards to vaginas?
AM: Aside from just a few medical circumstances, each vagina and vulva are good the best way they’re! For instance, I inform every certainly one of my sufferers that they don’t want labiaplasty, that their labia is ideal the best way it’s. I conduct an analysis to make sure that they’re present process the process beneath their very own volition.
I not too long ago wrote a e book chapter that particulars the significance of this consent course of, whereas nonetheless respecting ladies’s autonomy (and giving them the selection to bear this beauty process). My hope is that different surgeons will use this consent strategy as nicely. My final purpose is to empower ladies!

I recruited Dr. Kimberly Lovie, a Harvard and Yale-trained physician, scientist, and radiologist, to work in my apply.
She is a Harvard and Yale-trained Chemist, Engineer, and Sonographer (https://www.kimberlylovie.com/). She makes use of her information of radiology to conduct revolutionary research of the clitoris, utilizing ultrasound to judge blood stream and swell.
