What Are Your Concerns for Vaginal Rejuvenation?
What Can I Expect from the Recovery for Vaginal Rejuvenation?
The length of recovery will depend on which procedure(s) are performed and the extent of correction to the area. You will feel discomfort for up to a week. Most vaginal rejuvenation treatments require abstaining from sexual intercourse and tampon use for at least four to six weeks. Dr. Agullo will give you more detailed postoperative instructions during your personal consultation.
Is Vaginal Rejuvenation Painful?
Thanks to local or general anesthesia, you will not experience pain during your vaginal rejuvenation procedure.
It is normal for patients who receive a labiaplasty or clitoral hood reduction to experience minimal bruising, swelling, itching, or discomfort during the first few days after surgery. After the first week of recovery, many of these side effects will begin to subside. Most patients can usually alleviate any significant pain with over-the-counter pain medication.
Contact your doctor if you experience prolonged side effects, such as:
- Soreness and inflammation near treatment areas
- Severe pain
- Shortness of breath
- Increased heart rate
- Changes in vaginal sensation or numbness
Will Vaginal Rejuvenation Leave Scars?
Generally, vaginal rejuvenation does not leave visible scarring. The extent of scar development after vaginal rejuvenation depends on the technique(s) you received during your treatment. Some treatments, like the O-Shot®, leave no visible scarring, while a labiaplasty produces a scar that blends well into the labia minora tissue. This area has many wrinkles and folds, concealing any scarring naturally.
When Will I See My Vaginal Rejuvenation Results?
Vaginal rejuvenation results will vary based on the treatment assigned and the rate at which a patient recovers. Treatment plans that require skin removal or repositioning (labiaplasty) will require more recovery time before the full extent of the results are visible. The final results of a labiaplasty or clitoral hood reduction can be seen in one to two months.
What Does Vaginal Rejuvenation Cost?
The cost of vaginal rejuvenation in El Paso depends on which procedures are performed and the extent of correction required for successful results. You can see a list of the approximate prices of each procedure on our current fee schedule.
Generally speaking, cosmetic plastic surgery is considered “elective” and is not covered by most insurance plans. The prices listed on our fee schedule represent the minimum cost of the procedures, including anesthesia and surgical facility fees, medical tests, garments, and recovery products. The cost of prescription medications, however, is not included. The exact price of each procedure can only be determined after a thorough consultation.

What Are Some Frequently Asked Questions About Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Individual vaginal rejuvenation procedures, such as labiaplasty or O-shot®, take approximately one hour to complete. Patients should expect longer procedure times if more than one vaginal rejuvenation technique is combined.
Fortunately, vaginal rejuvenation is considered to be a minor surgery that is relatively safe and simple to undergo. The most common risks associated with labiaplasty include:
- Change in sensation
Most patients undergo vaginal rejuvenation under local anesthesia or “twilight” IV conscious sedation. Local anesthesia temporarily blocks sensation in a particular area, and twilight sedation renders the patient sedated but conscious. Vaginal tightening is performed under general anesthesia.
Dr. Agullo offers genital bleaching services related to female genital aesthetics through the MedSpa at Southwest Plastic Surgery. While there are at-home methods to lighten the skin, bleaching should always be performed by an experienced cosmetic professional to avoid complications and discomfort. We offer intimate bleaching that can be performed on the genital area, perineal, inguinal, axilla, elbows, and knees.
The O-Shot® may help treat several medical conditions, including:
- Urinary incontinence
- Lichen sclerosus
- Lichen planus
- Chronic pain from childbirth
- Interstitial cystitis
The O-Shot® may increase the ability to have a vaginal orgasm through many indirect benefits. For example, the O-Shot® can improve sexual intimacy by increasing libido, vaginal lubrication, and clitoral sensitivity. Some women may incorporate a clitoral hood reduction with their treatment plan, eliminating excess skin above the clitoris and increasing clitoral sensitivity. Vaginal tightening restores the tightness of the vaginal entrance and enhances intercourse for the patient and their partner.
