Vaginal Rejuvenation Q & A

What is vaginal rejuvenation?

Vaginal rejuvenation is a treatment designed to enhance the vagina. Specialized doctors use advanced technology to enhance tone, strength, shape, and control of the vagina. Dr. Kiley uses this treatment specifically to rebuild a vagina that has suffered trauma, mesh erosion, or surgical issues such as those resulting from severe childbirth trauma.

Along with enhancing, vaginal rejuvenation can also help:

  • Decrease dryness
  • Decrease elimination stress incontinence
  • Increase vaginal health

In addition to vaginal rejuvenation following trauma, Dr. Kiley also has experience repairing fistulas, which are abnormal connectors between organs that can be caused either by surgical mishaps or disease. Dr. Kiley can also repair urethral diverticula, which is the forming of a pouch near the back of the vaginal wall that can fill with urine and may cause pain.  

Who is a good candidate for vaginal rejuvenation?

Though anyone can receive vaginal rejuvenation, it is meant to help those who experience over relaxation, thinning vaginal walls, decreased lubrication, loss of control, and even tissue inflammation. Although some experience these naturally, these symptoms can be caused by:

  • Childbirth
  • Breastfeeding
  • Chemotherapy
  • Hysterectomy or other medical treatments

Dr. Kiley specifically uses this procedure to help women who have suffered vaginal trauma, especially as a result of childbirth issues.

How long is the recovery time after vaginal rejuvenation?

Recovery varies from patient to patient, but in most cases, you should expect to resume normal activity and work around four days after treatment with minimal friction to the incision area, and you can expect a full recovery in around six weeks.

During the first 24-48 hours after the procedure, you will need to ice and gently care for the area of the incision to minimize swelling and bruising. You may resume routine tasks in this period as long as there is no irritation or pressure at the incision sites. Avoid heavy lifting and vigorous activity for the first two days after the procedure.

How long do the results last?

You should see a difference beginning about 2 weeks following therapy, results should last about a year.
