Designer Vaginal Surgery for Beauty, Comfort, and Fun.

Increasingly women are turning to vaginal surgery to improve their appearance, sex lives, and health. Dr. Jennifer Walden is a leading expert on designer vaginal surgery in its various forms. She is a board certified plastic surgeon and a Texas native who moved to New York to be trained by some of the world’s leading aesthetic surgeons at the prestigious Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital where she rose high in the ranks and developed a name for herself. She then decided to return home to her native Texas to be closer to family and to open a thriving plastic surgery practice.

 

Dr. Walden says that year after year more women are choosing designer vaginal surgery or “labioplasty”. From 2013 to 2014 her office saw an increase of 49% in these types of surgeries. Women are coming to Dr. Walden’s office in part because they want to look good in yoga pants and bikinis. According to Dr. Walden many women have recently become aware of the aesthetic appearance of their vagina due to exposure to pornographic images and the already common practice of pubic hair removal. There is a new consciousness amongst women of the total appearance of their vaginas.

 

Yet, not all women choose labioplasty for vanity purposes. For some women who have enlarged labia it’s an issue of general comfort and health. An enlarged labia can be a hygiene concern, or cause discomfort during sex and when wearing tight clothing due to the labia constantly being tugged on and from friction. These women no longer need to suffer in silence. Dr. Walden says the typical candidate for labioplasty is a woman in her 20s or 30s who has already had a child though some women as young as 16 and old as 75 are seeking this kind of surgery out. Dr. Walden also performs non-invasive ThermiVa procedures to help women’s sex lives. In a ThermiVa procedure radio frequencies are used to tighten the vagina which can become looser with age and child birth. With growing awareness of their options even more women will be seeking this kind of surgery in the future.
