Gynecologic Surgery and Procedures

Have you ever gotten abnormal results from a PAP smear?

Do you feel tongue-tied and frustrated when talking to your gynecologist?

Each year, millions of women feel uncertain when talking to their gynecologist about a condition or procedure. Take an important step. Get informed. Keep Reading. Bookmark this site. Knowledge is power. Understanding will help you feel less anxious about the procedures being discussed and more confident in your options.

The questions you ask are just as important when it comes to Cosmetic Gynecological Surgery?

Cosmetic Gynecologic Surgery is divided into both sexual enhancement and cosmetic enhancement. At the Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation Institute of Denver, it is our mission to empower women with knowledge, choices, and alternatives so that they may make educated choices that reflect their needs and values.

For those women interested in enhancing their sexuality, we offer unique solutions and the expertise of a skilled gynecologic surgeon. These surgeries are elective procedures, which are only performed at the patient's request.

But first, some terms you need to know...

  • A Colposcopy typically follows an abnormal pap smear. During a colposcopy, a doctor uses a lighted magnifying tool known as a colposcope to take a closer look at your cervix.
  • Cervical Cyrosurgery or Cryotherapy typically follows a pap smear that tests positive for the presence of the Human Papillomavirus(HPV). The procedure involves using compressed nitrogen gas to freeze a section of the cervix where the abnormal tissue is located.
  • Hysteroscopy allows your physician to look at the lining of your uterus by gently inserting a thin, lighted telescope known as a hysteroscope through your cervix and into your uterus to diagnose or treat a uterine problem.
  • Pelvic Laparoscopy or Laparoscopy is usually performed under general anesthesia; however, it can be performed with regional anesthesia, permitting the patient to remain awake. The typical pelvic laparoscopy involves a small, 1/2" to 3/4" incision in the belly button or lower abdomen.
  • Dilation and Curettage (D&C), one of the most common gynecological procedures, is often used to diagnose and treat abnormal uterine bleeding as well as determine whether symptoms may be related to uterine cancer. During a D&C, a small instrument called a curette is passed through the vagina into the uterus to scrape the endometrium.
  • Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation® (LVR®) can effectively enhance vaginal muscle tone, strength, and control. It will decrease the internal and external vaginal diameters as well as build up and strengthen the perineal body (the area between the vagina and anus). LVR® can enhance sexual gratification for the female by increasing the amount of frictional forces generated. Not only does LVR® enhance sexual gratification, but it may also be used to treat women who experience involuntary loss of urine during coughing, sneezing, laughing, exercise, or sex. Vaginal Relaxation, the loss of optimum structural architecture of the vagina, can also be corrected with LVR®. With vaginal relaxation, the muscles are relaxed and have poor tone, strength, and control. The internal and external diameters increase. The muscles of the perineum are weak and poorly supported. Under these circumstances, the vagina is no longer at its optimum physiological state and sexual gratification has diminished. LVR® was designed to enhance sexual gratification for women who, for whatever reason, lack an overall optimum architectural integrity of the vagina.
  • Designer Laser Vaginoplasty® (DLV®) aesthetically enhances the vulvar structures utilizing laser surgery techniques. Vulvar structures include the external lips (labia majora), the internal lips (labia minora), mons pubis (area over the pubic bone), perineum (area between the vagina and anus), and the introitus (opening of the vagina). DLV® is for women who feel that aesthetic enhancement of their vulvar or vaginal anatomy would improve their sexual self-image thereby increasing sexual enjoyment.
  • Laser Reduction Labiaplasty sculpts the elongated or unequal labia minora (small inner lips) so that that they do not project beyond the large outer lips or labia majora.
  • Excess Prepuce Removal or Clitoral Unhooding. The excess prepuce is not typically removed only shortened so the patient has easier access to the clitoral region for easier stimulation. The woman may thus enjoy more intense stimulation and thus more powerful orgasms.
  • Redundant Prepuce Removal is a cosmetic procedure to remove redundant skin along the sides of the clitoris. This aesthetic procedure allows the skin to drape neatly over the clitoris and is often necessary in achieving the best aesthetic look at the time of Labial reduction.
  • Laser Reduction Labiaplasty with combined reduction of the thickness of the labia minora is a procedure that reduces the thickness of the labia minora, a condition that can be caused by aging, childbirth, or genetics.
  • Laser Reduction Labiaplasty® of the labia majora (large outer lips) sculpts or enhances the area to produce a youthful look and feel. This sagging process can result from childbirth weight gain/weight loss or aging. Laser Reduction Labiaplasty can also be used to remove hyper-pigmented end of the labia minora for women who wish to have uniform coloration throughout.
  • Laser Perineoplasty rejuvenates the relaxed or aging vulvar introitus (vaginal opening), labia minora, labia majora and perineum (area immediately outside the vagina and above the anus.
  • Laser Labiaplasty techniques can also be used in reconstructive procedures such as the reduction of the labia, which can be caused by age, vulvar trauma/injury, or childbirth trauma.
  • Augmentation Labiaplasty of the Labia Majora involves taking fat cells from another part of your body and, via liposculpturing, enhancing the labia majora to make it larger.
Vulvar Liposculpturing removes the unsightly fatty bulges of the mons pubis (pubic area) and labia majora in order to aesthetically enhance, reduce and define the structures. Combination of LVR® and LVR®: All of the DLV® procedures can be performed in combination with LVR®.
