Vaginal rejuvenation & designer vagina in London
Vaginal rejuvenation or “designer vagina” treatment is increasingly requested by many women who have undergone changes caused by childbirth or the natural ageing process. Both the appearance and function of the vagina can be significantly affected leading to soft tissue laxity, stress urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse or vaginal atrophy. Vaginal rejuvenation is a broad term to capture a number of potential non-surgical and surgical treatments that can lead to an improvement in vaginal appearance and tightness. The increased vaginal tightness can also improve many functional symptoms such as stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse.
Women with vaginal laxity most commonly notice a loss of sensation during intercourse, urinary incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse due to a loss of structural support brought about most commonly by childbirth but also the natural ageing process. Urinary incontinence can be particularly disabling and can be one of two types:
- Stress incontinence (leakage of urine when coughing or sneezing)
- Urge incontinence (need for rushing to the toilet without warning)
Non-surgical treatments for vaginal rejuvenation include both Votiva and laser gynaecology treatments. The surgical treatments for vaginal rejuvenation are broad and can include a labiaplasty to reduce and reshape the labia, vaginoplasty to tighten the vaginal walls or a perineoplasty to tighten the area between the vagina and anus. Our expert female gynaecologist will be able to advise you on the best options after a full clinical assessment. Our non-surgical central London facility at 106 Crawford Street is state of the art for non-invasive gynaecology treatments. For surgical gynaecology procedures, we have a purpose-built elective day surgery facility on Baker Street.

What is vaginal rejuvenation?Vaginal rejuvenation is a broad term used to describe treatments which are designed to tighten the vaginal wall and the perineal area which leads to an increase in vaginal tone and strength and also an increase in vaginal sensation which is often lost following childbirth. The overall appearance of the external vagina and labia can also be improved through the reduction of the labia minora for both improved aesthetics and function. Excessively long labia can interfere with intercourse and catch on clothing. The external labia can also be made to look neater following traumatic childbirths which resulted in perineal tearing.
