We're discussing vaginal rejuvenation surgery. In terms of plastic surgical procedures on the vagina, vaginal rejuvenation can be broken up into two different components. The first is vaginoplasty and the second is labiaplasty. Vaginoplasty is a procedure where the vaginal canal is tightened and made smaller. This is performed in women who have commonly had children and who now have some laxity of the walls of the vagina. A small amount of one of the walls of the vagina is removed and the remaining tissue is sutured together in order to tighten the vaginal canal.

Labiaplasty is a procedure that is performed on the external portion of the vagina. In some individuals, there is an excess of tissue involving either the labia minora or labia majora. These structures commonly being known as the vaginal lips. If there is excess tissue, that tissue can interfere with sexual intercourse and can be bothersome to the individual who has it. Therefore, there's a surgical procedure called the labiaplasty.

And, in this procedure the excess or redundant labial tissue or external vaginal tissue is removed. The edges of the remaining tissue is then sown or sutured back together. And, both a more ascetically pleasing and functional external vagina is created. Both of these procedures commonly improve sexual satisfaction and overall well being. So, vaginal rejuvenation surgery is basically made up of two different procedures and those procedures are vaginoplasty and labiaplasty.
