It’s not just about a better sex life. There are many reasons women choose to undergo vaginal rejuvenation, and many have nothing to do with sex. These reasons have to do with the vaginal structure causing discomfort or functional issues such trouble holding tampons, visible scar tissue surrounding the vagina, problems passing bowel movements, or experiencing a “popping” sound during a yoga class, walking or other light activities.
But your sex life will improve. Because vaginal rejuvenation tightens the vaginal canal, friction is increased during intercourse and causes greater stimulation and pleasure during sex. Studies actually show that 83% to 90% of vaginal rejuvenation patients experience an improvement in their sexual life after surgery. It is not only the vaginal structure that is improves patients’ sexual lives, but the improvement in the aesthetic appearance enhances their self confidence resulting in increased libido. What does this mean for women? They can get their groove back!
It’s a long-lasting investment. Unless another vaginal childbirth occurs, patients are typically good to go for the rest of their lives. Though it’s normal that all parts of the body relax slightly as we age, the vaginal area should never return to the degree of relaxation experienced prior to surgery.
