Vaginal Rejuvenation, Uterine Prolapse, Pelvic Floor Reconstruction
Uterine prolapse is treated by pelvic floor reconstruction - a variety of procedures which may sometimes include vaginal hysterectomy, anterior and posterior vaginal repairs, and reconstruction of the perineum. While some steps of the posterior vaginal repairs share some features with vaginal rejuvenation, they will have no effect on the prolapse. However, vaginal rejuvenation can certainly be done in conjunction with pelvic floor reconstruction if the surgeon is skilled at both.
Vaginal Rejuvenation for Prolapsed Uterus?
Unfortunately not. A prolapsed uterus is normally treated with a pelvic floor reconstruction, not vaginal rejuvenation. However, for many patients, laser vaginal rejuvenation can be a complimentary procedure to their pelvic floor reconstruction to help provide more comprehensive, long-lasting results.
Uterine Prolapse with Vaginal Rejuvenation
Vaginal rejuvenation, or vaginoplasty, is a surgery designed to tighten the vaginal canal and vaginal opening allowing a woman to experience greater sexual satisfaction by increasing intimate friction, muscle control and tone.
While these surgeries have different goals, they are many times performed simultaneously allowing a patient to experience a single surgical episode, limited anesthesia exposure and one recovery. The post op restrictions are essentially identical. I would recommend you consult with a cosmetic gynecologist or two who will then refer you to a general gynecologist whom they trust and work with regularly to address the uterine prolapse issues. Cheers my friend!

Vaginal Rejuvenation and Prolapsed Uterus
Hi Bella, thanks for your question.
Vaginal rejuvenation will not address a prolapsed uterus. I suggest that you ask your primary care doctor to refer you to an experienced gynaecologist to discuss what options you have for treating your prolapse.
Uterine Prolapse Repair with Vaginoplasty
Although Vaginal Rejuvination (aka Vaginoplasty) itself doesn't address uterine prolapse, it is not uncommon to have them both repaired at the same time. This is actually a good idea because then you only have one recovery period, typically 6-8 wks until you are fully functional again in that area. Other good news is, health insurance will frequently cover some/all of the costs for the uterine prolapse repair. Hope this helps...RAS
