The arrival of a new baby is nothing short of a miracle. While the transition into motherhood can be overwhelmingly exciting, it can also wreak serious havoc on the female body. Though not every woman experiences significant physical changes, the majority of new moms undergo their fair share of body alterations. More often than not, this includes vulvar sagging, prolapsed bladder, and vaginal laxity.

To reverse these adverse effects of childbirth, the mommy makeover was introduced. In essence, a mommy makeover refers to a set of cosmetic procedures designed to help women get their pre-baby body back. Most commonly, this involves a bladder tuck, vaginal muscle repair, and labiaplasty. These surgeries can be performed either individually or in conjunction to produce optimal results. Not every woman has the same needs, so it’s essential to target specific areas that have changed due to childbirth.

As more women notice drastic shifts in the appearance of their vagina, they’re opting for vaginal rejuvenation surgery which is a combination of the three and more. In addition to changing the size, shape, and look of the vagina, vaginal looseness can also impact a woman’s sexual gratification. Fortunately, vaginal rejuvenation surgery hones in on problem areas and, in turn, improves the function, feel, and look of the vagina.

It’s important to note that other factors can also give rise to vaginal laxity. For instance, weight gain during pregnancy. Depending on how much weight is gained, it can cause the labia to become looser and sag. For many women, this leads to decreased confidence and comfort. No matter what’s responsible for these significant and permanent changes, vaginal rejuvenation surgery can aid in tightening female genitalia. Labiaplasty, which is a form of vaginal rejuvenation surgery, is another viable solution.

Better known as aesthetic vaginal surgery, labiaplasty reduces or reshapes the lips of the vagina. For women who are anatomically displeased with their vagina, labiaplasty has proven a godsend. The labia, specifically, is modified, which influences the clitoris, vaginal opening, and overall outward appearance of the vagina. As cosmetic procedures like vaginal rejuvenation and labiaplasty are becoming more popular, women are uncovering the many benefits of these enhancing surgeries. What’s more, they’re slowly becoming normal components of the mommy makeover.
