Genital rejuvenation encompasses many different procedures that can be performed to alleviate pain and discomfort, enhance the appearance of the intimate areas, or achieve some combination of both goals. Whether your concerns are cosmetic or functional in nature, Dr Vaneshri Chetty-B offers advanced options for men and women considering genital plastic surgery. The decision to pursue a genital reconstruction procedure is very personal and requires a thorough discussion of your motivations, needs, and wishes for the outcome. Our highly trained plastic surgeon is committed to walking you through the entire surgical process and making you feel as comfortable and well-informed of your treatment options as possible.
Labiaplasty is a popular treatment option for women who would like to gain a more symmetrical, youthful, or aesthetic look in their intimate areas. Often known as “vaginal rejuvenation,” this procedure is one of the fastest-growing cosmetic surgeries performed today. In many cases, even younger patients may be bothered by labial minora hypertrophy, which refers to the inner folds of the labia (minora) extending beyond the outer folds (labia majora). This can create self-consciousness in intimate situations, or cause embarrassment due to visibility of the labia through form-fitting clothing. Whether your labial tissue is naturally elongated or has become stretched over time, Dr Chetty-B offers labiaplasty to tighten excess labial tissue and rejuvenate your feminine wellness according to your aesthetic desires.
The procedure can also be a solution for individuals who experience pain or functional concerns due to excess or redundant labial tissue. While elongated or enlarged labia often develop naturally as a result of the aging process, this can lead to painful twisting, tugging, and discomfort due to redundant tissue. Labiaplasty can also alleviate the symptoms of stretched labia and/or achieve a more balanced appearance in your intimate areas, depending on your wishes for the outcome. Labiaplasty is typically performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. Dr Chetty-B can discuss your options with you during a consultation to determine the best vaginal rejuvenation technique to achieve your goals.
Penis enlargement surgery is generally performed for cosmetic purposes with the goal of increasing the size and especially girth of the penis. This can be achieved by transferring fat cells from another part of the body, or by adjusting the tissues and ligaments of the penis to make it appear larger. The most effective technique depends on your needs, preferences, and goals for the outcome. With certain approaches, an enlargement procedure may create the illusion of a larger penis without actually increasing its length. Dr. Chetty-B will further explain all of the options available to you during a consultation.
A frenuloplasty is a procedure designed to release tightness in the frenulum of the penis in order to reduce pain, discomfort, and bleeding during sex. The frenulum refers to a band of tissue on the underside of the penis, which may be naturally tight or short in both circumcised and uncircumcised men. This can result in tightness and tension when the penis is erect, often restricting motion and causing pain during intimate situations. A frenuloplasty can resolve the tightness, bleeding, and general discomfort associated with this condition — referred to as a frenulum breve — by releasing the restricted tissue. This can increase your range of motion and allow more enjoyable and comfortable intercourse.
A frenuloplasty can be performed under local or general anesthesia. The procedure is often performed with minimal invasiveness, and the recovery period can be fairly quick relative to other surgeries. Unlike many types of genital rejuvenation, a frenuloplasty is mainly performed for functional reasons.
