♡ What can folks count on from a vagina makeover?
AM: There are lots of methods in beauty gynecology. The labia majora and/or labia minora could be shriveled with labiaplasty. Fillers may also be injected into the labia majora and minora. Clitoral hood discount is one other beauty surgical procedure which typically is finished together with Labiaplasty. Vaginoplasty entails surgical procedure on the vagina aka vaginal tightening.
Nonsurgical vulvar procedures embody microneedling, labial and G-zone fillers, platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) injections, laser vaginal rejuvenation (to tighten and thicken the vaginal wall), and Cliovana™largely.
I developed and perfected the Vagilangelo process, which is a minimally invasive methodology for tightening broken vaginal tissue and muscle. Step one of this 2-step process entails vaginal and G-zone enhancement by PRP injection. I then restore vaginal angle and tightness with a couple of inner sutures beneath native anesthesia.
♡ Stroll us by the method of pre, throughout & put up surgical procedure. What does your complete course of entail?
AM: Earlier than surgical procedure, I conduct a whole historical past and bodily examination in my workplace. I sit down with the affected person to get to know them, and to grasp their objectives for surgical procedure. I’ve a radical consent course of, which entails displaying the affected person that, apart from a couple of medical circumstances, every vulva and vagina are excellent the best way they’re!
We assessment many pictures of what a traditional vulva appears to be like like (my sufferers are sometimes stunned on the variation, and the wide selection of “regular”). As a result of beauty surgical procedure is as a lot an artwork as it’s a science, I take many “earlier than” pictures. After I assessment the pictures, the affected person and I give you a plan for surgical procedure.
On surgical procedure day, the affected person is delivered to the surgical procedure heart. They’re positioned beneath common anesthesia whereas I function.
After surgical procedure, they’re taken to the restoration room, the place they look ahead to 1 hour whereas the anesthesia wears off. They’re able to go house the identical day. I give every affected person my cellphone quantity, and so they can name or textual content at any time with questions.
♡ How dangerous does it harm? Be trustworthy!
AM: Many of the nonsurgical vulvar procedures solely contain a fast needle pinch.
We carry out many of the surgical procedures beneath a lightweight common anesthesia, and apply numbing medicine to the world. Sufferers solely really feel minimal ache after they go to the restoration room. Once they get house, not a lot ache medicine is required – Motrin is normally ample and typically sufferers don’t even take that.
♡ Are you able to share a tremendous success story with us?
AM: A 32-year-old lady requested a session with our gynecologic surgical procedure apply. She endorsed low shallowness resulting from labial enlargement and asymmetry. Because of this, she was reluctant to have sexual activity along with her companion. After being introduced with completely different surgical choices and educated in regards to the wide selection of regular labial sizes, she was assured that labiaplasty was the best choice for her. She underwent bilateral labiaplasty and posterior vaginal restore. After restoration, she reported a dramatic enchancment in her shallowness, sexual functioning, and total wellness.
♡ What’s the strangest factor somebody has requested you to do?
AM: A affected person wished her vagina to appear to be an anus from exterior…”my hubby at all times needs to take the again door, so I need it to appear to be…”

Labial publicity whereas carrying a washing go well with.
Decreased self-confidence and shallowness (researchers confirmed that this may usually result in decreased sexual intimacy).
(Analysis research of why girls request labiaplasty)
♡ Clarify to us the completely different elements of the vagina and what elements folks normally prefer to have remodeled.
AM: Individuals normally use the time period vagina to explain your complete feminine genital space. In actuality, the phrase vulva is the extra correct time period to explain this whole space. The vulva contains the mons pubis, labia majora (“outer lips”), labia minora (“inside lips”), vaginal opening, clitoris, and vestibular glands (these produce fluid to lubricate the vagina and urethra).
The vagina is separate from the vulva. It’s the elastic, muscular canal that extends from the vulva to the cervix.
The G-Zone (previously generally known as G-Spot) is a delicate space situated within the anterior vaginal wall. A current analysis research revealed that the delicate space isn’t really a focal “spot,” however a “zone” of 5 tissues concerned in sexual pleasure (clitoral crura, clitoral bulb, periurethral glands, urethra, and anterior vaginal wall) (Metro UK analysis writeup).
The labia majora and/or labia minora could be shriveled with labiaplasty. Fillers may also be injected into the labia majora and minora. Clitoral hood discount is one other in style beauty surgical procedure. Vaginoplasty entails surgical procedure on the vagina.
Nonsurgical vulvar procedures embody microneedling, labial and G-zone fillers, platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) injections, laser vaginal rejuvenation (to tighten and thicken the vaginal wall), and Cliovana™.
I developed and perfected the Vagilangelo process, which is a minimally invasive methodology for tightening broken vaginal muscle tissues. Step one of this 2-step process entails vaginal and G-zone enhancement by PRP injection. I then restore vaginal tightness with a couple of inner sutures beneath native anesthesia.
♡ Do kegels and pelvic ground workouts actually work?
AM: They do! The pelvic ground is made up of a number of complicated muscle tissues. Like all muscle exercise, pelvic ground workouts (also referred to as Kegels) strengthen the pelvic ground. A analysis research confirmed that girls with stronger pelvic ground muscle tissues have higher sexual operate (Martinez et al 2014). The precise motive for that is unclear, however my analysis companion, Dr. Kimberly Lovie, and I hope to search out the reply by our analysis. We have now ultrasound movies of the clitoris throughout Kegel workouts. The ultrasound exhibits that in Kegel workouts, blood stream to the clitoris will increase!
Kegels can even enhance signs of urinary and fecal incontinence, and pelvic organ prolapse, for each women and men.
♡ What’s one factor you would like folks knew extra about in terms of vaginas?
AM: Except a couple of medical circumstances, each vagina and vulva are excellent the best way they’re! For instance, I inform each one in every of my sufferers that they don’t want labiaplasty, that their labia is ideal the best way it’s. I conduct an analysis to make sure that they’re present process the process beneath their very own volition.
I lately wrote a guide chapter that particulars the significance of this consent course of, whereas nonetheless respecting girls’s autonomy (and giving them the selection to endure this beauty process). My hope is that different surgeons will use this consent method as effectively. My final purpose is to empower girls!
♡ The place can everybody discover you? Pimp your self out!

Cerē’s physician-developed merchandise are serving to folks discover and attain their most enjoyable elements, eradicate sexual disgrace, and put an finish to orgasm inequity.

As medical doctors, we have now a accountability to get rid of the taboo and stigma of sexual wellness, particularly within the medical setting. We should handle society’s failure to coach girls about their our bodies, and proper the parable that discomfort, ache, and the absence of enjoyment with intercourse is regular.
Enhancing sexual well being and wellness requires a patient-centered method, recognizing that every physique has distinctive wants and wishes.
I recruited Dr. Kimberly Lovie, a Harvard and Yale-trained physician, scientist, and radiologist, to work in my apply. She is a Harvard and Yale-trained Chemist, Engineer, and Sonographer (https://www.kimberlylovie.com/). She makes use of her information of radiology to conduct revolutionary research of the clitoris, utilizing ultrasound to guage blood stream and swell. Collectively, we created the primary clitoral ultrasound protocol for scientific use. This enables us to map the anatomy of the clitoris earlier than and after surgical procedure. We imagine it will result in improved outcomes for our sufferers. No different surgeons do that, however by our advocacy and outreach, we hope it will turn into the usual of care.
We lately revealed 3 papers in Sexologies, the official journal of the European Federation of Sexology.
