♡ What can individuals count on from a vagina makeover?
AM: There are numerous strategies in beauty gynecology. The labia majora and/or labia minora could be gotten smaller with labiaplasty. Fillers will also be injected into the labia majora and minora. Clitoral hood discount is one other beauty surgical procedure which typically is completed together with Labiaplasty. Vaginoplasty includes surgical procedure on the vagina aka vaginal tightening.
Nonsurgical vulvar procedures embody 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 methodology 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 inner sutures below native anesthesia.
♡ Stroll us by the method of pre, throughout & submit surgical procedure. What does your entire course of entail?
AM: Earlier than surgical procedure, I conduct a whole historical past and bodily examination in my workplace. I sit down with the affected person to get to know them, and to know their targets for surgical procedure. I’ve a radical consent course of, which includes exhibiting the affected person that, excluding just a few medical circumstances, every vulva and vagina are good the best way they’re!
We evaluate many photographs of what a standard vulva seems like (my sufferers are sometimes shocked 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” photographs. After I evaluate the photographs, the affected person and I provide you with a plan for surgical procedure.
On surgical procedure day, the affected person is delivered to the surgical procedure heart. They’re positioned below basic anesthesia whereas I function.
After surgical procedure, they’re taken to the restoration room, the place they anticipate 1 hour whereas the anesthesia wears off. They’re able to go residence the identical day. I give every affected person my cellphone quantity, they usually can name or textual content at any time with questions.
♡ How dangerous does it harm? Be trustworthy!
AM: Many of the nonsurgical vulvar procedures solely contain a fast needle pinch.
We carry out a lot of the surgical procedures below a light-weight basic anesthesia, and apply numbing treatment to the realm. Sufferers solely really feel minimal ache after they go to the restoration room. Once they get residence, not a lot ache treatment is required – Motrin is normally enough 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 shallowness as a result of labial enlargement and asymmetry. In consequence, she was reluctant to have sexual activity along with her companion. After being offered with totally different surgical choices and educated in regards to the big selection of regular labial sizes, she was assured that labiaplasty was the most suitable choice for her. She underwent bilateral labiaplasty and posterior vaginal restore. After restoration, she reported a dramatic enchancment in her shallowness, sexual functioning, and total wellness.
♡ What’s the strangest factor somebody has requested you to do?
AM: A affected person wished her vagina to seem like an anus from outdoors…”my hubby at all times desires to take the again door, so I need it to seem like…”
♡ What are some medical instances you see which may require a vaginal surgical procedure?
AM: Appropriate bladder or uterine prolapse.

Labial publicity whereas carrying a washing go well with.
Decreased self-confidence and shallowness (researchers confirmed that this will usually result in decreased sexual intimacy).
(Analysis examine of why ladies request labiaplasty)
♡ Clarify to us the totally different components of the vagina and what components individuals normally prefer to have revamped.
AM: Folks normally use the time period vagina to explain your entire 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 positioned 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 could 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 embody 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 methodology for tightening broken vaginal muscle tissues. 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 inner sutures below native anesthesia.
♡ Do kegels and pelvic ground workout routines actually work?
AM: They do! The pelvic ground is made up of a number of complicated muscle tissues. Like all muscle exercise, pelvic ground workout routines (often known as Kegels) strengthen the pelvic ground. A analysis examine confirmed that girls with stronger pelvic ground muscle tissues have higher sexual perform (Martinez et al 2014). The precise purpose for that is unclear, however my analysis companion, Dr. Kimberly Lovie, and I hope to seek out the reply by our analysis. We now have ultrasound movies of the clitoris throughout Kegel workout routines. The ultrasound reveals that in Kegel workout routines, blood circulation to the clitoris will increase!
Kegels may 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 in relation to vaginas?
AM: Except just a few medical circumstances, each vagina and vulva are good the best way they’re! For instance, I inform every one among 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 below their very own volition.
I just lately wrote a ebook 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 aim is to empower ladies!
♡ The place can everybody discover you? Pimp your self out!

As medical doctors, we’ve got a accountability to remove the taboo and stigma of sexual wellness, particularly within the medical setting. We should deal with society’s failure to teach ladies about their our bodies, and proper the parable that discomfort, ache, and the absence of enjoyment with intercourse is regular.
Enhancing sexual well being and wellness requires a patient-centered strategy, recognizing that every physique has distinctive wants and wishes.
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 data of radiology to conduct revolutionary research of the clitoris, utilizing ultrasound to judge blood circulation and swell. Collectively, we created the primary clitoral ultrasound protocol for scientific use. This enables us to map the anatomy of the clitoris earlier than and after surgical procedure. We consider it will result in improved outcomes for our sufferers. No different surgeons do that, however by our advocacy and outreach, we hope it will turn out to be the usual of care.
We just lately printed 3 papers in Sexologies, the official journal of the European Federation of Sexology.
