Would you Consider a ‘Designer Vagina’?


It seems these days that cosmetic surgery knows no bounds. If you have the desire and the cash, you can change pretty much anything about your body that you don’t like. The current ‘must have’ celebrity cosmetic procedure is the ‘designer vagina’. But what exactly is this latest fad and could it do anything for you?

Vaginal rejuvenation

The correct term for this particular cosmetic enhancement is ‘vaginal rejuvenation’. The procedure typically combines vaginoplasty (tightening of the vagina) together with optional labiaplasty or vulvaplasty (reshaping of the labia or vulva). It’s a popular option for women who fancy a downstairs tidy-up following childbirth, aging, injury or significant weight loss. Sometimes the internal vaginal structures change shape and stretch over time leading to a loss of sensation or discomfort during sex and this procedure can make a huge difference to a woman’s quality of life and intimate relationships.

Pros and cons

As with all cosmetic procedures there are advantages and disadvantages to vaginal rejuvenation. On a positive note, your vagina will regain the tightness you enjoyed when you were younger or before you had children. The neater external appearance the procedure brings may increase your self-confidence and enhance your look in swimwear or lingerie. You’ll only have to undergo the procedure once as the results are intended to be life-long.

However, you and your partner might find that your new tightness takes a little getting used to and you may find that experimentation with different positions is necessary until you find what’s comfortable and works for you both. Immediately following your procedure there’s the danger of bleeding, infection and possibly even lasting damage to your bladder. As with all cosmetic surgery there are horror stories of operations ‘gone wrong’ that required hours of more painful corrective procedures to put right bungled treatments.

Vaginal rejuvenation surgery is not cheap. You can expect to pay from $5,000 to $10,000 depending on the extent of the surgery you want and the clinic you use.

What to expect

The most common method of performing internal vaginal rejuvenation is to use a laser. Any superfluous tissue is removed and the incisions stitched neatly inside the vagina. You’ll be given pain blockers that will keep you comfortable for at least 48 hours following surgery and the laser means that bleeding will be minimal.

A labiaplasty is used to tidy up the external appearance of your genitals. Your surgeon will mark the desired contours and then remove unwanted labial tissue using a laser. The edges of the labia are then aligned and soluble sutures put in place. You can choose to have reduction or augmentation of your inner and outer vaginal lips together with reduction of your Mons pubis if desired, and even remodeling of your clitoral hood.

The surgery is performed in a hospital, or accredited surgical suite in a cosmetic surgery clinic on an outpatient basis. The whole procedure is carried out under general anaesthetic and takes between one and two hours depending on the extent of the tidy up required. You’ll usually be allowed home the same day but you will need someone to collect you from the clinic who will also be able to stay with you for a day or so following your operation.

Immediately after the surgery you’ll have bruising and swelling and probably varying degrees of pain. Although you’ll have to spend a day or so in bed following the procedure, you can expect to return to work within a week. You’ll have to wait up to two months before you can try out your new designer vagina with your partner.


The most commonly used alternative to surgery for a tighter vagina is one of the many tightening creams on the market. These creams actually work pretty well although the effect is only temporary. For just a few dollars you can enjoy a tighter vagina, increased lubrication and a pleasant tingling sensation.

Regular pelvic floor strengthening exercises can also help if you can get into a daily routine of carrying them out. Just tighten and release the muscles of your vagina in sets of 10, starting with three sets and working up to as many as you can comfortably manage.

In conclusion

Vaginal rejuvenation surgery does seem a drastic not to mention a very expensive and risky way of turning back the sexual clock. Have you experienced this procedure already, or would you even consider it?
