Do you feel tongue-tied and frustrated when

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...
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®.
- 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
- 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
- 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
- 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.
