The Results You Want
If you feel self-conscious about your external genital appearance, cosmetic gynecology procedures can help you feel more confident even in your most intimate moments. Vaginal rejuvenation options include:
- Labiaplasty: Most often performed to reduce elongated inner labia, labiaplasty can also address outer labia to create a discreet, proportionate look.
- Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation: We are proud to be the first Chicago area cosmetic surgery practice to offer the Mona Lisa Touch laser for laser vaginal rejuvenation. This cutting edge treatment offers a long-term, non-hormonal solution for a number of concerns. It has been called “The Laser That Could Save Women’s Sex Lives,” and in just 1 to 3 treatments (that last less than 30 seconds with no pain), it can treat vaginal atrophy, dryness, laxity, burning/pain and mild urinary incontinence.
- Mons Reduction: An overly pronounced mons pubis (the soft mound just above your vaginal cleft) can contribute to the appearance of “camel toe.” Mons reduction uses liposuction to reduce fatty deposits for a more streamlined appearance.
- Mons Lift: The mons pubis can sag with time and in response to gravity. A mons lift reduces fatty tissue while removing excess skin for a firmer, smoother profile.
During your initial consultation, we’ll listen to your appearance goals and answer any questions you may have about vaginal rejuvenation. We know that cost is always an important factor when considering cosmetic surgery. We are happy to go over all available financing options, including CareCredit, that can help make your vaginal rejuvenation procedure even more affordable.

What to Expect
The best candidates for vaginal rejuvenation are women who are in good physical and mental health who feel unhappy with their external vaginal appearance, or who are experiencing physical discomfort as a result of their anatomy or due to vaginal atrophy. It’s not uncommon for vaginal rejuvenation to be performed as part of a mommy makeover in combination with additional body contouring procedures. We will talk more with you about your hopes for vaginal rejuvenation in order to determine the procedures he feels will work best for you.
Your consultation is a time that you and the doctor can discuss your reasons for considering cosmetic gynecology, and is an important first step in ensuring your ideal outcome. A physical evaluation may be needed to determine the best approach to help you meet your goals. We will also talk about your personal preferences for vaginal rejuvenation.
In some cases, we may suggest that additional health-related steps be taken before scheduling your vaginal rejuvenation, such as quitting smoking before surgery. You’ll also be given detailed instructions about how to prepare for your procedure, and what to expect during your recovery.
Preparing for Your Vaginal Rejuvenation
Surgical time for your cosmetic gynecology appointment will vary, depending on which procedure is being performed. For example, laser vaginal rejuvenation takes just a few minutes, while labiaplasty or a mons lift may take 1 to 2 hours. Most often, vaginal rejuvenation is performed on an outpatient basis, so you shouldn’t have to stay overnight after your procedure.
Recovery & Results
Your recovery experience will vary depending on which cosmetic gynecology procedure is performed. For example, laser vaginal rejuvenation is a 5-minute treatment that requires no downtime, and only requires sexual abstinence for about a week after your session. A labiaplasty or mons lift can leave you feeling uncomfortable for a few days, with bruising and swelling that may persist for 1 to 2 weeks.
Your new look should gradually become more noticeable as healing continues. You can return to your normal daily activities by several days after your procedure, although exercise and sexual activity should wait a bit longer. Most women see not only physical improvements, but also feel that their sex life is enhanced due to the physical and emotional benefits they experience after undergoing vaginal rejuvenation.
