Vaginal surgery has become a popular treatment option for various gynecological problems including mennorhagia (heavy menstruation), urinary incontinence, a sagging bladder, and sexual dysfunction.  In fact, these treatments are becoming so common that it is no longer strange to hear about labiaplasty in Indiana or other parts of the Midwest.  Believe it or not, these surgeries aren’t just popular in cities like Los Angeles.

This blog will give a short list of some of the most common vaginal surgeries performed today:

Labiaplasty: Labiaplasty includes the alteration of both the labia minora (inner labia) and the labia majora (outer labia).  Labiaplasty is common among women who were born intersex.  Intersex people display both male and female sex characteristics, either hormonally or through their actual genitals.  Other patients elect for labiaplasty in order to change the appearance of their vagina.

Laser vaginal rejuvenation surgery: This procedure involves precise aesthetic surgical incisions that tighten loose and sagging vaginal tissues.  This surgery is intended for those with a relaxed vaginal lining.  A relaxed vaginal lining often leads to urinary incontinence as well as sexual dysfunction.

Cryoablation of the endometrium: This procedure involves removing the inner lining of the uterus.  Cryoablation is often useful for women who suffer from heavy menstruation, also known as mennorhagia.  Women who undergo this surgery are required to take a pregnancy test at least 3 weeks prior to the surgery.  Most patients recover quickly.

Before signing up for vaginal surgery in Michigan or anywhere else in the world, it’s important to do your research on the procedure options and your local doctors.
