Summary:A mommy makeover is a combination of cosmetic surgery procedures—most often breast augmentation, a tummy tuck and liposuction—designed to help women rejuvenate their figures following the effects of pregnancy and childbirth. Concerns like baby weight, fluctuations in breast size or shape and stretch marks aren’t the only area of concerns for moms, though. Including genital rejuvenation procedures as part of your mommy makeover can help you feel truly revitalized from head to toe.
One of the concerns that women are often most sensitive about after giving birth is the feeling of vaginal looseness. The vaginal muscles are strong and powerful enough to deliver a child after many hours of labor, and should return to normal after your baby’s birth. Sometimes, though, vaginal muscle tone doesn’t recover as much as many women might prefer. This stretching out of vaginal muscles as a result of childbirth can impact sexual sensation and satisfaction for both partners. During vaginoplasty, the internal muscular structure of the vaginal wall is repaired and tightened so you feel more like yourself again.
The perineum, or area of skin between the vagina and anus, can also be negatively impacted by vaginal childbirth. Like vaginoplasty, perineoplasty restores tightness to the perineal area, including the vaginal opening (introitus) as well. Perineoplasty is sometimes included as part of vaginoplasty, particularly for women who have noticed issues with stress incontinence following the birth of one or more children. Additionally, the cosmetic appearance of the perineum can be improved during surgery as well, correcting concerns related to skin tags or excess tissue that can help you feel more confident about your external vaginal appearance.
Inner labia that are overly large compared to the outer labia can feel embarrassing, and can also cause discomfort during daily activities like biking or other exercise. Elongated labia can also interfere with sexual satisfaction, both in terms of physically getting in the way or leading to feelings of self-consciousness that prevent women from feeling confident in their intimate relationships.
Labiaplasty creates a more proportionate look by reducing the size of the inner labia, and can also improve cosmetic appearance by removing darker labial edges. Smaller, more discreet inner labia can mean improved comfort in or out of the bedroom, both physically and emotionally. Although less common, labiaplasty can also be performed to enlarge or reduce the outer labia as well.
Clitoral Hood Reduction
The sensitive clitoris houses more nerve endings than any other area in the male or female body, and is covered by a protective flap of skin to prevent overstimulation. In some cases, though, this hood is overdeveloped and actually interferes with sexual stimulation instead. Clitoral hood reduction can enhance sensitivity in the clitoris during intercourse, and the removal of excess skin also improves aesthetic appearance. Clitoral hood reduction can be performed as a solo surgery, but is often combined with labiaplasty in order to ensure a better transition where the labia join the clitoris.
The G-spot is an internal erogenous zone located on the front vaginal wall. In a quick outpatient procedure, the G-spot can be enlarged to allow for easier stimulation that can lead to more powerful vaginal orgasms. For women who want to reclaim their fully sensual nature following pregnancy and childbirth, or for those who want to boost sexual satisfaction for themselves and their partners, the combination of G-spot amplification and clitoral hood reduction can work together for dramatic results.
