Let’s talk about a sensitive and intimate subject for most women—the appearance of the outer genital area and the size and shape of the vagina. At Plano Urogynecology Associates, we offer women a caring and safe environment in which to discuss these issues, as well as expert medical care to address concerns.
The appearance of the genitals and the shape and tightness of the vaginal region can be impacted by genetics, childbirth and aging. Even though this is something most women don’t discuss with even their closest friends and family, they may be suffering from feelings of embarrassment or feel awkward during sexual activity.
In addition, we know that a poor body image can lead to a low sex drive, and that cosmetic gynecology can sometimes help women boost their confidence.
Cosmetic gynecology is an elective surgery, performed for varying reasons to address individual issues. Dr. J. Kyle Mathews performs the procedures in our North Dallas office while the patient is under local anesthesia. Most services can be completed in one to three hours.
A labiaplasty or labia reduction helps improve the external appearance of the vaginal area by reducing uneven or excessive skin. This type of cosmetic gynecology service can help women feel better about their appearance during intimate moments. It can also help women who feel self-conscious about bulges due to uneven or large labia that may be noticeable when they wear swimsuits or workout apparel.
Vaginal rejuvenation, or vaginoplasty, is a cosmetic gynecology service that can improve sexual function for both the female and male partner. During this procedure, the muscles and tissue of the vaginal area are restored and tightened. After a vaginal rejuvenation, women will have smaller, tighter openings to the vagina, as well as more compact vaginal canals.
Dr. Mathews performs a repair that encompasses the entire length of the vagina, which provides superior results, unlike some physicians who perform a perineoplasty, which only addresses the first few centimeters of the vagina.
If you’re considering cosmetic gynecology, take note of the experience and expertise of your surgeon. At Plano Urogynecology Associates, you can rely on Dr. Mathews to provide you with the level of medical care you deserve.
