Aesthetic Gynaecology is an emerging niche medical sector that offers a range of treatments used to restore or simply alter the physical appearance and/or function of female genitalia.
The two aesthetic gynaecological treatments we offer are:
Childbirth and hormonal changes, due to menopause and ageing, may affect a woman’s intimate health. These physiological changes can negatively impact the elasticity of the vaginal canal, damage the pelvic floor, and devitalise the mucosal tone of the vaginal wall. In fact, vaginal laxity is one of the most common, yet overlooked, health concerns among women and it is estimated that 76% of females are likely to develop vaginal laxity during their lifetime. Although it does not cause any pain, this laxity can cause embarrassment during intimacy, as well as conditions such as urinary incontinence and uterine prolapse. By understanding the physiological changes, we can treat the issues and enhance the appearance and function of the vagina with Vaginoplasty, which can be a surgical procedure or using laser technology (non-surgical).
In the surgical procedure, the surrounding muscles and soft tissues of the genital area are surgically and strengthened and tightened using sutures to improve the sensation and enhance sensual satisfaction.
For those who want a non-invasive option laser vaginoplasty offers real benefits. During treatment, a laser/ radio frequency device is used to stimulate the collagen production in the area and decrease the size of the vaginal canal. A course of treatments is required.
This procedure alters the labia minora and the labia majora, the folds of skin (lips) surrounding the vagina. Whilst it’s entirely normal for a woman to have skin folds around her vaginal opening, their size, shape or appearance may be a cause of concern or embarrassment. For instance, Labial hypertrophy (a condition whereby the labia minora is excessively large and protruding) can affect self-confidence and have a detrimental effect on being intimate.
Labiaplasty is a treatment that changes the size or shape of the labia, typically making the labia minora smaller or correcting an asymmetry between the labia. The doctor will remove the unwanted tissue with either a scalpel or laser before using fine dissolvable stitches to stitch the area so it heals.
