Everything You’ve Wanted to Know about Vaginal Cosmetic Treatments

When it comes to cosmetic procedures, no area of the body is off limits! As plastic surgery has become more and more socially acceptable, it is no surprise that women are curious about ways to rejuvenate and beautify their “intimate anatomy” with cosmetic gynecology procedures. Many women in Los Angeles feel self-conscious or embarrassed about the appearance of their genitalia, particularly if the delicate skin is large or misshapen, while others want to reverse the effects that age, hormones, and motherhood have had on their bodies. Fortunately, there are a variety of safe and effective vaginal cosmetic treatments to choose from, some of which do not even require surgery, such as ThermiVa.

At Comprehensive Urology, we have extensive experience performing medical and cosmetic vaginal treatments in Los Angeles designed to help women feel comfortable and regain their sexual confidence again. To learn more, please review the following information and then schedule a consultation at our Beverly Hills office.

Types of Feminine Rejuvenation Procedures

There are a variety of cosmetic vaginal treatments available to give women younger, sleeker, and more aesthetically pleasing genitals (externally and internally) while also providing actual medical benefits as well.

The most effective cosmetic vaginal rejuvenation treatments include:


One of the most common cosmetic vaginal treatments in LA, labiaplasty involves surgically reducing the size of the labia minora (inner lips) and/or the labia majora (outer lips) of the vulva. Some women may simply dislike the size and shape of their labia, or some may experience irritation or chafing as a result of the inner labia extending past the outer labia. Labiaplasty can address both of these issues by shortening and/or re-shaping the labia.


Often requested by mothers who have given birth vaginally, a vaginoplasty involves tightening the vaginal canal and opening by surgically removing excess tissue in order to create a smaller diameter. The procedure can help restore a tighter tone and texture to the vagina after childbirth.

FemiLift ®

FemiLift is a non-surgical treatment designed to tighten vaginal tissue, improve nerve function, and establish younger-looking tissue using laser energy. This painless procedure is performed with a thin probe that is inserted into the vagina where pulsed laser energy transforms the tissues and structures of the internal and external genitals. The FemiLift vaginal cosmetic treatment can also relieve mild to moderate forms of urinary incontinence by tightening the pelvic muscles and can even “bleach” darkened vaginal skin.


Similar to FemiLift, ThermiVa relies on radiofrequency waves to heat the vaginal tissue and cause it to rejuvenate and tighten. The radiofrequency waves stimulate collagen and elastin fiber production in the skin, which leads to a firmer, more supple texture while also triggering increased blood flow and nerve production. As a result, ThermiVa effectively improves the appearance and function of the vaginal tissue and muscles. With just one vagina radiofrequency treatment session, most patients easily see and feel the difference.

How is Recovery After a Vaginal Tightening Procedure?

The recovery process will vary depending on whether a patient has undergone vaginal plastic surgery or a non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatment in Los Angeles. Surgical treatments can be performed on an outpatient basis, but the patient will undergo local or general anesthesia followed by incisions to remove and shorten the delicate tissue. Following surgery, patients can experience swelling and tenderness for a few days while the incisions heal. During this time, it is suggested that the patients do not engage in any strenuous physical activities including intercourse.

Non-surgical treatments, on the other hand, such as ThermiVa do not require any downtime and patients can return to everyday activities, and even engage in sex, immediately after treatments.

Who is a Candidate for Vaginal Cosmetic Treatment?

In order to be eligible for surgical or non-surgical vaginal cosmetic treatments, it’s crucial to consult with a skilled specialist with extensive experience in performing such cosmetic treatments. The urologists at Comprehensive Urology determine a good candidate for vaginal cosmetic treatments based on whether she is in good health, has mild to moderate vaginal looseness or stretching, does not suffer from severe pelvic floor damage, and has realistic expectations. Surgical procedures (e.g. vaginoplasty), or non-surgical (e.g. ThermiVa), each come with various potential risks and benefits, which is why it is so important to only undergo treatment with an expert and to discuss each option in-depth before choosing one.

For more severe vaginal concerns, the Los Angeles team at Comprehensive Urology can conduct a thorough exam to determine the best treatment options as well. Do not hesitate to schedule a consultation to receive the care and treatment you need to regain control and comfort.
