Does Thermiva give the same results as a Majoraplasty?

No, ThermiVa will not give the same results as a majoraplasty
If you are solely concerned with the appearance of your labia majora and are open to a surgical procedure, a majoraplasty may be a good choice for you. However, if you are also dealing with issues such as urinary incontinence, vaginal dryness, etc, ThermiVa might be a better choice for you.
3-4 ThermiVa treatments are usually required to get desired results, and these results can last 1-2 years. No anesthetic is required.
I hope this answer is helpful! Best of luck.
ThermiVa will not produce the same results as surgery. It does have many advantages though as it is done in the office, virtually pain free, and with no down time. Many women experience results that they are very happy with.
Surgical V. Non-Surigcal
ThermiVa is a non-surgical procedure, performed in an office, with no anesthetic required, and has no recovery period. The results can be immediate In the case of reduction of the labia majora, but multiple treatments are performed to achieve maximal results. The treatment causes contraction of the tissues which is why the labia appears amazingly smaller. The treatment also causes a biological process to begin which takes several weeks to occur which lays down new collagen, blood supply and renewal of the tissue occurs. This accounts for the other improvements seen. Three treatments are currently the standard due to individual response rates and seem to maximize the results in most individuals. More treatments can be performed on an individual basis but this is not the norm. The procedure which treats a variety of conditions lasts for varying lengths of time approximately one year. A single Touch-up is recommended on a yearly basis based upon your results to maintain your improvement. Majoraplasty is a surgical procedure performed to reduce the size of the labia majora, usually on more severe cases.

ThermiVa vs Majoraplasty
ThermiVa is a great choice for minor labia majora sagging, so its hard to say if you would benefit from the procedure. It doesn't give the same results as surgery and the ThermiVa will usually need to be repeated (despite doing the first 3 treatments) probably about every 9-12 month or more. It has been my experience the results last about 9-12 months and then things begin to loosen up. Treat the thermiVa like botox therapy, same amount of upkeep. ThermiVa requires no anesthetics whatsoever as it is absolutely painless.
That being said if you want long lasting results go to surgery and get the labia majora reduction. Please make sure you choose a surgeon with experience

No ThermiVa does NOT give surgical results
If you are a candidate for a Labia Majora Reduction due to very lax and deflated labia majora then you are better off with having a majoraplasty. This is performed in the office under local anesthesia with minimal downtime. You may return to work within a few days, but no sex for 4-6 weeks. Please see link below for examples of Labia Majora Reduction.
If your majora are looking slightly aged and loose, then skin tightening with Radio Frequency such as ThermiVa or Pelleve would give you temporary results and buy you some time. You would need to keep doing these treatments every 6-12 months which adds up in cost and time.
You may also consider labia majora augmentation with fillers or fat, but this depends on your overall anatomy and goals.
