Genetics, aging, and childbirth are all factors that can contribute to the changes in a woman’s body. A large or irregular labia is a condition that can cause embarrassment, leading to many women seeking treatment options. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. William Vinyard of Vinyard Institute of Plastic Surgery in Port St. Lucie, FL, understands there are two main reasons for having a labiaplasty, which are discomfort and aesthetics. You may feel pain or irritation when exercising, wearing tight clothing, or even having sexual intercourse. Another reason for considering labiaplasty is dissatisfaction with the look of your labia.
Women who are unhappy or self-conscious about the appearance of their genital area can make a change with AVIVA FemTite™, a form of nonsurgical labiaplasty offered at Vinyard Institute of Plastic Surgery. If you struggle with vaginal laxity or loose skin, call our clinic to schedule a private consultation. Here are five things you need to know before getting a labiaplasty.
1. FemTite is minimally invasive
Are you an ideal candidate for nonsurgical labiaplasty? Women who are considering this treatment should be at or near a healthy weight and have loose skin tissue along the vaginal lips or labia. We also recommend that you are finished having children, since pregnancy and childbirth can alter your results. A consultation with Dr. Vinyard will help you determine if FemTite is the right procedure to meet your needs.
While traditional labiaplasty surgery requires cutting tissue, sutures, and time spent in recovery, there are other treatments to consider. FemTite is a minimally invasive, nonsurgical procedure that only uses a local anesthetic, which can give women peace of mind by dramatically decreasing recovery time.
2. FemTite uses radiofrequency waves
To begin the treatment, the professional staff at Vinyard Institute of Plastic Surgery uses a handheld device to emit radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL) to target tissue, and Dr. Vinyard makes a small incision to insert the device. Using radiofrequency waves enables our team to reduce unwanted loose or bulky tissue and tighten the skin without the need to surgically cut it away.
3. FemTite can treat a range of issues
FemTite offers a nonsurgical solution to a wide assortment of issues women may face on a daily basis. With excess labia tissue, you may experience pain or discomfort when sitting, wearing tight clothes like leggings, or exercising. You may have even noticed a decrease in sexual interest or pain during intercourse.
Vaginal laxity can cause other problems with health and self-esteem. If you have lost vaginal sensation during intercourse, for example, you may be worried this is causing potential issues in your relationship. A labiaplasty can bring back sensation by improving laxity. If you would like to know how a nonsurgical labiaplasty can help with this issue, call today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Vinyard.
4. FemTite requires minimal recovery time
So, what can you expect when the procedure is over? FemTite is an outpatient procedure, so you can return home afterward and resume your daily activities. To help you feel relaxed and comfortable, we will use a local anesthetic before beginning the treatment. Best of all, most women only need one treatment to get the results they are looking for.
The good news is that, unlike a surgical labiaplasty, you don’t have to worry about a lengthy recovery schedule or lingering pain. However, even though this is a noninvasive procedure, Dr. Vinyard and his staff will still give you a set of instructions to ensure that you heal properly, so be sure to follow them closely. This includes waiting to use tampons or engage in sexual activity until we have cleared you to do so.
5. FemTite results can last for years
To plan for your nonsurgical treatment, you may want to schedule a few days off from work to make sure you have time to rest and heal. During your consultation, we can give you advice about how long you should recuperate and when you can expect your results.
One of the benefits of FemTite is that you will continue to see some improvement over the next 3 – 6 months. Optimal results are usually seen after 12 weeks. You can enjoy your new results if you continue to maintain a healthy weight over time.
