By reducing the length and projection of the skin around the clitoris, this surgery, also known as a hoodectomy, makes a small change that can mean a big difference. It may be paired with a vaginoplasty.
Metoidioplasty (otherwise known as clitoral release surgery) is performed when a patient doesn’t want a complete phalloplasty. Leading up to the procedure, testosterone hormone replacement therapy gradually enlarges the clitoris. The clitoris is then relocated upwards to create a micropenis. The procedure might also involve creating a scrotum using tissue from the labia majora or minora and inserting testicular implants. In many cases, the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries can be removed at the time as metoidioplasty.
Phalloplasty is a surgical procedure that involves creating a penis using skin grafts, often from the abdomen, groin, or thigh. It may or may not involve lengthening the urethra. During the procedure, the clitoris can be left in place or moved to the base of the penis where it maintains its sensitivity. A scrotoplasty may also be performed, which involves using tissue from the labia to construct a scrotum and then inserting testicular implants. If scrotoplasty isn’t desired, testicular implants can be place into the labia majora. A total hysterectomy is often performed at the same time as phalloplasty, which removes the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries.
Hymenoplasty is a surgical procedure that uses a flap of vaginal lining to reconstruct a broken hymen or, in some cases, creates one for a woman who was born without. The procedure is typically performed in order tocause bleeding during post-nuptial intercourse, which in some cultures is considered proof of virginity.
Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that removes excess tissue from the labia, either for cosmetic reasons or for women who feel physical discomfort due to enlarged or elongated labia. When combined with vaginoplasty, this procedure may also be known as vaginal rejuvenation.
Male-to-female (MTF) vaginoplasty is a surgical procedure that involves converting penile and scrotal tissue into a vagina, clitoris, and labia. It’s usually combined with labiaplasty to further refine the external appearance of the vagina. The procedure should allow patients to have sexual intercourse and orgasm.
MonaLisaTouch is a laser therapy used to treat changes in vaginal health often caused by menopause. Common symptoms include itching, burning, vaginal dryness, and painful intercourse. It can also be used to treat similar side effects in women who have undergone a hysterectomy or breast cancer treatments.
There are tools and methods that promise penis enlargement (pills, creams, stretching exercises, surgery, etc.), but there islittle to no evidence that these are effective at changing the length or width of the penis. The world is still waiting for something proven, effective, and most importantly, safe. Other terms associated with these treatments include phalloplasty and penis augmentation.
Perineoplasty is a surgical procedure to tighten the entrance of the vagina or correct damage to perineal tissue that's oftencaused by childbirth. A V-shaped incision is made in the back wall of the vagina, damaged or excess tissue is removed, and the muscles are stitched back together. This is usually performed during avaginoplasty, but the procedure can also be performed on its own.
Many methods are available to lessen the appearance of scarring, and the one used will depend on the severity of the scar. Non-surgical methods include injectable fillers for concave scars, light therapy, lasers, dermabrasion, and chemical peels. Deeper scars require surgery to remove.
ThermiVa is a non-surgical vaginal tightening treatment for women who want to reclaim what childbirth or aging may have taken away. Using the same technology that’s used in ThermiTight and ThermiSmooth, radiofrequency energy is sent to the desired area (internally or externally), heating the tissue and stimulating the body’s own collagen. ThermiVa is performed in three treatments over the course of three months.
Vaginal rejuvenation is essentially a facelift for the vulva and vagina. It often combines a vaginoplasty (tightening of the vaginal wall, specifically at the entry point to the vagina) and labiaplasty (labia reduction) to improve its outer appearance for a refreshed look and feel.
Vaginoplasty involves tightening of the vaginal wall,specificallyat the entry point to the vagina. Incisions are made on the inside of the vagina.
diVa vaginal therapy is a laser treatment used to address changes in vaginal health often caused by childbirth and menopause. It may also be used totreat side effects in women who have undergone a hysterectomy or chemotherapy. The device's laser handpiece is inserted into the vagina, delivering controlled energy pulses into the tissue. The procedure takes less than five minutes and is only mildly uncomfortable. For optimal results, three treatments are recommended, spaced one month apart, with a maintenance treatment once a year if desired.
5 out of 5 stars Labiaplasty
I had surgery at Cosmetic Urology Institute in Cleveland, Ohio. What a great experience!! The surgeon is unlike plastic surgeons that I went to for consultation. The surgeon is a certified pediatric urologist who is also a cosmetic surgeon for adult women and men. He was referred to me by my friend who had a clitoroplasty and she loved him. Since he performs genital reconstruction in children, he has great cosmetic results in adults. Also all he does is operate on genitals unlike plastic surgeons. That is why I choose him. He sat with me, showed me pictures of his patients, and described the options. He keeps everything confidentially and in a quite atmosphere. I live in New York and the institute helped me make all of the arrangements with the hotel and trave. The surgery went great and I had the result that I wanted. When I had a question one late evening, he took the phone call because he takes all of his own calls. I highly recommend the institute and surgeon.
