Ask Sofia: What Is Vaginal Rejuvenation?
You may have heard about vaginal rejuvenation in the media or through local plastic surgery clinics. Recognizing that the vagina can stretch and change following pregnancy, childbirth and menopause, various procedures may help increase elasticity in the vaginal wall while enhancing moisture in the case of dryness and overall sexual satisfaction. Some procedures can also help with urinary stress incontinence.
“While Clinic Sofia does not presently offer this procedure, we recognize that some of our patients may be curious about it,” said Dr. Donna Block, founder of Clinic Sofia. “We are weighing the benefits and determining if this is something our patients both want and need.”
Performed with a laser, most vaginal rejuvenation procedures require several treatments and can be performed in a medical office with little to no downtime. One downside, Dr. Block says is that the procedures are not covered by insurance so patients would have to pay out-of-pocket and it can be costly.
“However, if this something that our patients are truly interested in, we’d love to hear from them,” said Dr. Block.
