Rejuvenate the most intimate area of your body with the most trusted team at Capizzi, M.D.
Cosmetic labiaplasty, sometimes known as the “designer vagina” surgery, is known for giving patients a rejuvenated look and feel for this most intimate area.
As labiaplasty can tighten the vaginal opening and remove tissue that inhibits stimulation of the clitoris and vagina, a woman’s sex life can be dramatically enhanced. Other issues addressed by this surgery includes discomfort from longer vaginal tissue, which can rub the wrong way during sex or in tight clothing, or patients who feel uncomfortable with their vagina’s appearance, whether due to changes that come with age or other factors. At Capizzi MD, the finer details of labiaplasty are individualized to the individual patient’s needs and goals.
What Does Labiaplasty Include?
Wedge Resection Technique
There are different methodologies for performing Labiaplasty. At Capizzi, M.D., we prefer the wedge technique. The primary advantage of the wedge procedure is that there is a shorter scar located across the labia, rather than along its edge
The wedge resection is a safe and effective method of reducing the labia minora. Due to Dr. Capizzi’s use of the Capizzi Method™, the entire surgery takes about 40 minutes and can be done under local anesthesia, or can be added to your Mommy Makeover procedure.
Dr. Capizzi, a double board-certified surgeon who completed his training at the renowned Mayo Clinic, has been helping clients feel their absolute best for almost 20 years. Because no two patients are exactly alike; similarly, no two labiaplasty procedures are the same, during your initial consultation, Dr. Capizzi will customize your labia treatment to your unique needs and specifications, carefully reviewing your photos, your medical history, and listening to your vision of your best self. Along with his attentive, compassionate staff, he will ensure the beautiful results you’ve dreamt about but weren’t sure were attainable.
Patients can expect minor swelling for 3-4 days right after cosmetic labiaplasty surgery. After 4-6 weeks clients can gradually return to sex and strenuous exercise.
DiVa Vaginal Rejuvenation
DiVa Vaginal Rejuvenation can be done during a Mommy Makeover surgery or even just as an add-on to Labiaplasty- a local anesthetic procedure done in just under an hour. diVa utilizes Hybrid Fractional Laser Technology, which provides independent levels of clotting, as well as varying levels of density. This allows the provider to customize the treatment to the results the patient is seeking. The treatment wand is a single-use dilator made of strengthened quartz, which remains stationary to expand and flatten the vaginal tissue for an unbroken treatment. As the hand piece is rotated through the treatment area, pulses are delivered through a new section of quartz to ensure laser efficiency. The single-use dilator eliminates the need to clean the hand piece, which reduces the risk of cross contamination and shortens the downtime between treatments. We recommend each patient wait 4-6 weeks in between their treatments, so complete results from the previous treatment are developed.
Childbirth stretches the vaginal canal and surrounding tissue, and the vagina can mostly be repaired by the body’s own healing response, but with many women, the tissue may not return to the same state as before childbirth. This stretching damages the vaginal walls, perineum, and surrounding tissues, which often leads to diminished vaginal health and function.
Stress urinary incontinence is one of the most common complaints. Far too often women avoid exercise and other activities due to the embarrassment from this occurrence. After just one diVa treatment, patients experience much better urinary control, and with two or three total treatments, incontinence can be resolved.
Menopause and other events such as a hysterectomy, chemotherapy, or the process of breast-feeding, may lead to reduced estrogen production by the ovaries and may often lead to thinning, drying and inflammation of the vaginal walls, which can make intercourse and day to day functions uncomfortable. There have been a number of women who have seen much needed improvement in vaginal health after receiving a diVa treatment.
