Vaginal Rejuvenation in Miami
In his nearly 30 years as a gynecologist, Dr. Mark Scheinberg, our Board Certified OB/GYN, has heard just about every problem and issue a woman can experience. Fortunately, most are able to be corrected with various techniques and procedures perfected over the last decade. (Many of them were developed by the world renowned Prof. Ostrenski. And I had the privilege of training with him extensively.)
Here are the 5 most common problems. But don’t worry if your personal issue isn’t on this list. That doesn’t mean we can’t address it and correct it; it just means everyone is different and unique, as are the problems they encounter.
If you have something you want to cover that’s not here, don’t hesitate to contact us.
5 Most Common Problems Facing Women
Common Problem #1: Vaginal Looseness
Dr. Mark Scheinberg, our Board Certified OB/GYN tells patients, “Diamonds are forever… but everything else? That’s another story!”
Things like time and child birth can take a toll on your body, and this can cause your vagina to not be as tight as it once was, creating the sensation of “looseness” or “smoothness.” Most women complain of this problem after giving birth, where, from even one vaginal birth, significant damage can be done to the vagina. Patients with this problem often express that “sex doesn’t feel the same anymore.” This is because the vagina is no longer at its optimum physiological state, and as a result, the physical stimulation needed for sexual gratification can often be diminished.
There are also cases where this problem is not a result of childbirth, and in those cases solutions are customizable for your particular needs. Dr. Scheinberg always recommends that each individual patient be evaluated and examined in order to get the correct diagnosis.
Typically vaginal rejuvenation and reconstruction procedures would be the most advisable treatment option for this problem.
Common Problem #2: Lack of Sensation During Sex
In addition to mental and emotional factors, sexual gratification requires physical stimulation. Most patients who complain of lack of sensation often have stretched or relaxed vaginal pelvic structures. This is also very common in women who have given birth vaginally, though there can be many cases where vaginal birth was not a factor.
Things such as genetics and aging can also be a major cause for lack of sensation. Some women produce excess cervical mucus which reduces friction and can be corrected by a specific procedure. Again, before deciding what steps to take, Dr. Scheinberg would have each individual patient evaluated and examined. The most common treatment option for this is vaginal rejuvenation and reconstruction.
Common Problem #3: Stress Urinary Incontinence (Leaky Urine)
This is the most common type of urinary incontinence in women. Stress Urinary Incontinence is an involuntary loss of urine that may occur during physical activity, such as coughing, sneezing, laughing or exercise.
Two muscles are involved in the control of urine flow: the sphincter and the detrusor. In stress incontinence, the sphincter muscle and the pelvic muscles and ligaments, which support the bladder and urethra, are weakened. The sphincter is then not able to prevent urine flow when there is increased pressure from the abdomen (such as when you cough, laugh, or lift something heavy).
Genetics and aging play a major role in the onset of stress incontinence. It can also often be seen in women who have had multiple pregnancies and vaginal childbirths, and whose bladder, urethra, or rectal wall stick out into the vagina (this is called “vaginal prolapse”).
If you’re suffering from SUI, know this can be corrected. But again, Dr. Scheinberg can tell you what will work best for you after a complete exam.
Common Problem #4: Pain or Discomfort
During intercourse, pain or discomfort can occur in a woman’s labial, vaginal or pelvic areas. Recent studies suggest that more than 60% of women report current or previous episodes of pain during sexual relations.
Because the symptoms and causes of pain and/or discomfort can vary widely, it is crucial to Dr. Scheinberg perform a detailed exam, and then suggest different treatment options.
Common Problem #5: Embarrassment from Appearance of Vagina
Every women’s vagina looks different, but very often women are embarrassed and self-conscious about the way the outside of their vagina looks… even after being reassured that they are normal.
The things that have the biggest effect on appearance include:
- Labia Minora (or thin inner lips)
- Labia Majora (or thick outer lips), Prepuce, Hood and Perineum Cosmetic considerations include:
- Contour – the shape isn’t smooth and pleasing
- Color – the colors aren’t consistent and matching on both sides. Some women have darkened sides and want to correct that
- Symmetry – both sides are not even and don’t look alike
Size – most women want their inner labia smaller and an outer labia that is “puffy.” (With the procedures Dr. Mark Scheinberg performs, you can even choose how puffy.)
- Smooth Edges – the “natural” look has smooth edges with hidden suture lines. Also important are the surrounding structures noted above.
We can correct all of these problems with Designer Labiaplasty and Vulvoplasty procedures.
7 Solutions & Options Available to You
Just like fingerprints, everyone has their own unique vagina. Everyone also has their own individual problems with their vagina, and their own reasons for wanting to improve their vagina or vaginal appearance.
Fortunately, there are a number of cutting edge options and solutions available today we can use to get you looking and feeling like you did when you were younger, or before you had children.
While your friend may have had her vagina corrected with labiaplasty, and is going on and on about how wonderful she feels and how incredible her results are and that you should get it done too… your unique issue may require a much different approach. So it’s important to consult with a Dr. Mark Scheinberg, a skilled cosmetic gynecologist BEFORE deciding which options are best for your situation.
And this is very important to know: Over the past decade, cosmetic gynecology procedures have been promoted in the media with trademarked names like “LVR,” “DLV,” and “G-Spot Amplification.” In 2007, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists came out with something called “Committee Opinion #378.”
That opinion says it’s deceptive to give women the impression that vaginal rejuvenation, designer vaginoplasty rejuvenation, g-spot amplification or any other such procedures are accepted and routine surgical practices. They are not. They are elective, cosmetic procedures.
That’s why it is so very important to get to know your surgeon, and do your homework to get yourself informed. Personally, Dr. Mark Scheinberg, a world renowned Board Certified OB/GYN, has been working with a team of other physicians to shine a light on deceptive practices, and to bring honest new cosmetic plastic gynecology procedures — based on clinical-scientific criteria — to women like you.
1. Vaginal Rejuvenation and Reconstruction
Is a range of techniques used to help increase the tone and tightness of the entrance and insides of the vagina. It can transform your vagina by repairing the damage caused by things such as age and childbirth, restoring the natural shape and tightness, and recreating the vaginal ridges.
The results can lead to a renewed sex life for both partners. It may also correct urinary incontinence and help to restore self-esteem and confidence.
2. Site Specific Defect Repair (SSDR)
The supporting tissue that gives rigidity and shape to your vagina is called Fascia. With stretching, very common during childbirth, this fascia stretches and tears leaving the vagina with multiple defects. This allows the overlying surface tissue (Mucosa) to balloon or smooth out leaving an acquired sensation of “smooth” or “wide” vagina.
This can cause reduction of sensation during sex. Site Specific Defect Repair repairs these tears individually, returning the natural integrity of your vagina. This leads to a repair, restoring the tightness, friction and sensation that a young, healthy vagina has.
Designer Laser Labiaplasty and Vulvoplasty are the aesthetic surgical corrections and enhancements of the genital structures: labia minora, labia majora, clitoral hood, mons pubis, perineum, prepuce, and hymen.
There are five crucial areas that need to be discussed between you and your surgeon to achieve the aesthetic look you want. They are: Contour, Color, Symmetry, Size, and Smooth Edges. Designer Labiaplasty and Vulvoplasty are cosmetic surgeries designed to enhance the overall appearance of your vagina.
There are 9 known ways to do a labiaplasty, The vast majority are “Aesthetic Labia Minora Amputation,” where the enlarged lips are cut down to reduce size. Although many patients prefer this procedure, we believe you should have more choice in your result than just how much is cut off. That’s why our most popular is the Mark V which preserves edge, color, contour, symmetry and reduces size while hiding the suture line.
In most cases this surgery is performed to transform the enlarged inner lips of the vagina into petite, smaller lips if they happen to extend below the outer lips excessively. In addition to causing women embarrassment and self-consciousness, a condition like this can also cause physical discomfort during sex or when you are wearing tight underwear or a swim suit.
In most cases recovery from this procedure occurs rapidly, and most patients are able to return to work within a couple of days. (More physical activity will require a longer healing time.) The results are usually visually dramatic, creating an aesthetically pleasing vagina that can give a woman back her confidence and self esteem, while also eliminating the discomfort she had been experiencing.
4. Fat Transplant
We are able to either add or remove fat from your labia and mons pubis. By doing this we are then able to refine the shape of the vagina to your liking. Many women will often specify if they want fat removed, or if they want fat to be added to create a “plumper” look.
5. Hymenoplasty (Reconstruction of the hymen)
This procedure can repair your hymen and return it back to its original state. The Center for Cosmetic Gynecology is sensitive to the needs of women from all cultures and we embrace these particular issues based on cultural, social, or religious reasons.
6. Vaginal Rugae Rejuvenation
The “vaginal rugae” are ridges in your vagina that are designed to create sensation when the penis moves back and forth over them. The tightness of your vagina and the quality of your rugae are important in determining the amount of pleasure experienced by both you and your partner. When your vagina becomes “loose” and your ridges smooth out, sexual pleasure can be reduced or lost.
Vaginal Rugae Rejuvenation is a procedure that has been perfected over many years. This technique is used in addition to Vaginal Rejuvenation and Reconstruction in women who need their rugae ridges corrected and wish to restore sexual sensation and pleasure.
7. G-Spot Augmentation
The “G-Spot Shot” is a simple, non-surgical, physician administered treatment that can temporarily increase pressure on the Grafenburg spot (G-Spot) in sexually active women with normal sexual function.
Dr. Mark Scheinberg does this by using FDA approved DNA human-engineered collagen, Hyaluronic Acid or fat. The effect can last for up to 9 months or longer. While these results are often impressive, understand that your results may vary. If you are looking for an increase in sexual pleasure, this is an option you want to discuss with Dr. Scheinberg.
10 Answers to the Most Asked Cosmetic Gynecology Questions
Dr. Scheinberg has had consultations with many patients over many years of practicing cosmetic gynecology. Below are his most frequently asked questions:
#1: “Is the procedure painful?”
The short answer is “no.” For the majority of the procedures patients are asleep. Most of our patients report that the pain they experience after is very minimal. But understand, with any procedure that requires surgery, some degree of discomfort is to be expected. Our patients’ comfort is one of our top priorities, and we make every effort to safely minimize any pain that you may experience.
#2: “Will I have to go under general anesthesia?”
There are some cases where a patient requests something minor to be done to the exterior of her vagina. In this case Dr. Scheinberg can use local anesthesia and the procedure can be done in our exam room. But in general, most patients go under general anesthesia to achieve their desired results.
#3: “What is the recovery time?”
Every patient and every procedure is different, so the healing time varies widely. Generally our patients are comfortable enough to be back to sedentary types of work within 3-7 days. We ask that you do not engage in any heavy physical activity, like exercising or lifting heavy objects, etc., over the weeks following surgery, as you will continue to heal during that time.
#4: “How long will I have to wait to have sex again?”
Many of our patients come in for surgery because they are desperate to enjoy sex fully once again. After surgery, we request you wait a total of 6 weeks before engaging in intercourse. This time allows your body to fully recover and prevent any future damage to be done to your vagina.
#5: “How long has Dr. Scheinberg been doing these procedures?”
Dr. Scheinberg has been Board Certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology since 1978, and has been specializing in cosmetic vaginal surgery since 2010. Dr. Scheinberg has received extensive training in vaginal reconstructive surgeries from the world-renowned professor and industry leader, Professor Adam Oztrenski. Throughout Dr. Scheinberg’s long career, he has performed over 10,000 vaginal procedures.
#6: “I don’t live in the Miami or Doral area. How would I get this procedure done?”
Many of our wonderful patients often travel to us from all over the world. For our out-of-town patients, we have close relationships with several luxury hotel accommodations very close to our office, and our patients receive a special discounted price. We also frequently give a phone consultation to help them understand and prepare for the procedure. We can also coordinate additional follow up appointments with your private physician.
You should plan to arrive in South Florida a day or so before your surgery, and plan to remain for 2-7 days post-surgery, depending on your procedure.
#7: “Will insurance cover my procedure?”
Insurance policies cover medical cases when the insurance company views a case as a medical necessity. If it does, it will cover either the entire cost or a portion of the cost of a procedure.
In general, both cosmetic vaginal surgeries and vaginal rejuvenation surgeries are considered elective procedures. These procedures are not considered surgeries of medical necessity and are performed only because the patient requests them.
Since these surgeries are not medically necessary or performed for life threatening conditions, they are considered to be plastic or cosmetic surgical processes. These types of surgeries are not covered by insurance.
#8: “Can I expect any additional costs?”
All of our surgery quotes are completely all-inclusive. This means your total cost for surgery will include everything necessary, including the operating room, anesthesia, medical assistants, and all pre-op and post-op care.
# 9: “Do you offer payment plans?”
The answer is yes. We have a couple of different financing options that we offer all of our patients. These options include third party financing, such as our own related 3rd party financing, CareCredit, in addition to others. All of these can be easily worked out with you once you have received your surgery quote.
#10: “How long will my rejuvenation last? Will my vagina ever need to be redone?”
Once your vaginal rejuvenation procedure is completed, the effects will be long lasting, and your vagina will usually not need to be redone. It is important to note there are specific instances where the effects of the procedure could be reversed. For instance if you were to give birth vaginally, or if you experience some kind of serious trauma to your vaginal walls.
It’s important to note, should you become pregnant any time after your surgery, giving birth via C-Section will reduce the negative effects on your reconstruction.
