Femilift v. Vaginoplasty
Doctor Answers 6
Femilift vs vaginoplasty
Femilift is a non invasive laser treatment that improves laxity to the vaginal mucosa, treats dryness, discomfort, improves sexual response, and helps with stress urinary incontinence. It is essentially pain free, with almost no downtime. Vaginoplasty is a surgical procedure used for much more severe cases of laxity or other disorders of the vagina itself.
Both good options
Femilift will lead to a moderate tightening of the vaginal tissues, as well as improved tissue quality and lubriction. Substantial tightening of the vagina will require surgery.
FemiLift vs. Surgery
FemiLift is a minimally invasive procedure. It’s about a 10 minute in-office treatment that is tolerated extremely well, with the only “down-time” being nothing in the vagina for 3 days after the procedure. A vaginoplasty is a surgery, which often means a greater risk, more severe downtime, and can be necessary to achieve a more dramatic result in extreme cases. Please visit your OBGYN to get clearance for either procedure and ensure you visit a licensed medical doctor to receive treatment.

FemiLift ("non-invasive") versus surgical vaginoplasty/perineoplasty for vaginal tightening
Find an experienced cosmetic gynecologic surgeon who is skilled in vaginoplasty and perineoplasty. This person may also have capability to perform FemiLift/MonaLisa/ThermiVa, and may combine these "non-invasive" technologies WITH SURGERY for a more effective result. Perhaps as well you will find a practitioner (Dr. Red Alinsod in La Mesa, or myself in Davis in Northern CA) who dose their surgery under local anesthesia, saving you $3000 in hospital fees!

FemiLift versus Vaginoplasty is like Botox versus Facelift
Femilift versus ThermiVa
Thank you for sharing your question with us.Congratulations on having a large family, however after 4 vaginal deliveries I suspect that more then likely there is some component of prolapse which will need to be addressed.In order to properly address prolapse and create a longer lasting and more successful procedure then I would recommend a vaginoplasty performed by a cosmetic gynecologist who can address the prolapse as well as tighten and rejuvenate the look of your vagina.Although the Femilift is an amazing device that we use frequently use in our practice, it will not address and treat significant prolapse. However it will help with moderate vaginal tightening, vaginal atrophy, improves lubrication and helps to correct mild to moderate stress incontinence.We often combine both therapies in cases like yours, especially if there is a component of urinary stress incontinence associated with what is going on.
