What is Vaginal Rejuvenation? | Dr. Christi Answers

All health and wellness journeys start with a first step—communication. Both you and your health and wellness provider must be able to talk openly and honestly about your concerns and goals. 

You must be able to speak your truth in a non-judgemental environment, and ask any and all questions that get you the information you need to make smart decisions. 

One of the questions we frequently get at MedSpa at ChristiMD, whether in-person at our facilities, on the phone, or via our contact page online, is “what is vaginal rejuvenation?” Sometimes referred to as “designer vagina,” it’s an authentic question and deserves a respectful answer.

Read on to understand what a vaginal rejuvenation process is, and what it could mean for you.

Vaginal Rejuvenation Definition

Vaginal rejuvenation is cosmetic surgery performed on the vulva and/or labia, and sometimes within the vagina itself. You might have some people refer to vaginal rejuvenation as “designer vagina.” This media-generated slang term usually means just the visible effects of cosmetic surgery, which is labiaplasty.

How does labiaplasty work?

Labiaplasty at MedSpa at ChristiMD returns droopy or enlarged labia to a previous smaller, symmetrical shape and size. During labiaplasty surgery, the lips are trimmed and reconfigured to achieve the change. For most women the procedure involves reconfiguring the labia minora, so that they do not extend below the labia majora.

What is labiaplasty meant to accomplish?

There are several reasons for labiaplasty to be performed for vaginal rejuvenation.


Enlarged labia may sometimes cause discomfort with their appearance, and may become irritated and painful when wearing certain clothes, during some types of exercise, and possibly while riding on a bike or saddle.

Cancer concerns

If part of the labia has to be removed for health purposes, labiaplasty is the course of action to excise the cancerous or precancerous tissue. This procedure does the most to ensure the labia achieves a pleasant, symmetrical postoperative appearance.

Sexual discomfort

Have longer or droopy labia can get in the way during sexual intercourse. This tugging or stretching can cause considerable pain. Vaginal rejuvenation is what many women use to alleviate the issue and improve their sexual function.

Aesthetic satisfaction

Every woman’s labia are unique and medically normal. However, age, genetics, childbirth, or declining hormone levels can create unwanted changes in the appearance of labia. This could cause embarrassment about, or a lack of confidence in, their physical appearance. 

Labiaplasty allows a woman to choose how she wants her vagina to appear externally.

Vaginoplasty for tightness

To fully answer the questions “what is vaginal rejuvenation,” vaginoplasty provides a surgical means to improve performance of the vaginal canal. 

During a vaginoplasty procedure, Dr. Christi removes excess tissue, the cause of laxity in the canal, and gently relocates the rest of the tissue/musculature so they may heal properly and completely. Though invisible outside, the goal of vaginoplasty is to make your internal vaginal walls feel more responsive for both you and your partner, improving the pleasure of intercourse.
