Choosing the Right Procedures

I have worked as a receptionist at a popular cosmetic surgery office for the past ten years, and I have seen every type of cosmetic surgery and recovery that you could imagine. Unfortunately, some patients are much better at choosing their procedures than others. For example, we had one patient that opted to have ten nose jobs in a row, which lead to a deformed bridge and a super tiny nose tip. Unfortunately, when she came back a few months later to have the problem corrected, the doctors didn't have enough tissue to work with. On my website, you will learn how to decide which procedures are right for you, so that you aren't left regretting your decisions down the road.

Cosmetic Gynecology: An Introduction For Curious Women

by Michelle Austin

Cosmetic procedures are an ongoing topic of discussion for women who have a deep-seated need to feel confident with their bodies. Whether it is breast augmentation, tummy tucks, or facial enhancements like rhinoplasty or a facelift, these procedures have been around for a lot of years. However, one of the lesser-known forms of cosmetic surgery falls under the category of gynecology. The fact is, as a woman, even the most private areas of your body see changes with age, pregnancy, and childbirth, and these changes can have a negative impact on your life. Here is a closer look at some of the most commonly asked questions about cosmetic gynecology. 

What are the primary advantages of cosmetic gynecology?

Women choose cosmetic gynecology procedures for several reasons. In most cases the choice to have a procedure performed will be because of changes that occur with age or after childbirth in the shape and tightness of their vaginal area. Some of the advantages that come along with such procedures include:

  • a tighter appearance of the outer areas of the vagina
  • the ability to wear form-fitting clothing without concern
  • higher levels of sexual sensitivity inside and out
  • fewer issues with incontinence 

What are some of the forms of cosmetic gynecology procedures performed?

There are a handful of different procedures offered by most cosmetic gynecologists. While some women will choose to target one specific area with just one procedure, some may prefer a set of procedures to tackle a few different issues. The primary types of procedure are labiaplasty to reshape or reduce the size of the labia, clitoral unhooding to remove excess skin around the clitoris, hymenoplasty to restore hymen tissue, and vaginoplasty which tightens the inner walls of the vagina. Choosing a procedure best for you should involve lengthy discussion with a cosmetic gynecologist and will depend on your personal reasons for wanting the surgery. 

Is everyone a good candidate for gynecological cosmetic surgery?

Most people are a good candidate for cosmetic gynecological procedures because the procedures are not as invasive as some other forms of cosmetic surgery. Of course, the outcomes of each individual surgery will vary according to your age and the severity of loose skin or tissue. If you have recently given birth, your doctor may recommend that you wait a while before having the surgery performed, because the body naturally tightens the vaginal area somewhat as you heal after having a baby.
