Vaginoplasty vs. Geneveve for Vaginal Tightening
Vaginoplasty is a surgical procedure that “tightens up” a vagina that feels lax or loose as a result of childbirth or aging. Geneveve non-surgical radiofrequency treatment also “tightens up” the vagina. So how do you know which treatment is best for you?
Detroit area board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali has helped hundreds of women address vaginal looseness and restore vaginal tightness with both surgical vaginoplasty and new Geneveve non-surgical radiofrequency treatment. In this article he discusses the differences between the two procedures, to help you decide what’s right for you.
Vaginoplasty for Vaginal Tightening
Vaginoplasty is a surgery that requires anesthetic. Incisions are made on the inside of the vagina, and the vaginal wall is stretched and pulled taught at the entry point to the vagina – and stitched into place.
Recovery time is typically around two weeks for vaginoplasty surgery.
Although vaginoplasty is a relatively safe and “routine” surgery, as with any surgery it comes with risks.
Risks of vaginoplasty surgery include:
- Possible scarring
- Some risk of infection
- Reaction to anesthesia
Additionally, because it is a surgery requiring an anesthesiologist and an operating room, vaginoplasty is relatively expensive – costing up to $9,000. Typically vaginoplasty is NOT covered by health insurance as it is generally considered an elective cosmetic procedure.
Geneveve Radiofrequency for Vaginal Tightening
Geneveve radiofrequency treatments also achieve tightening of the vagina – but without surgery. Because it is non-surgical, there are no incisions, no anesthetic and no operating room is needed for Geneveve.
This means there are no risks or side effects to Geneveve Vaginal tightening:
- NO pain
- NO possible scarring
- NO risk of infection
- NO anesthesia so NO possible reaction
Only a single treatment is needed with Geneveve that only takes about a half hour. Not only is there NO downtime with Geneveve, it about 1/3 the cost of vaginoplasty surgery.
Vaginal Tightening & Sexual Sensation
Some surgeons claim vaginoplasty also improves sexual sensitivity – but this claim is strongly disputed by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG). If anything, the improved amount of friction due to the tightened vaginal tissues may improve sexual response somewhat.
On the other hand, Geneveve does typically improve sexual sensation. This is because Geneveve does NOT stretch the vaginal tissue. Instead, it uses radiofrequency heat to stimulate the body’s own collagen production. In addition to plumping and strengthening the vaginal tissue with new collagen, this treatment also improves blood flow and stimulates natural vaginal lubrication and hormone production.
