Vaginal Reconstruction in New York is performed by our caring, and professional surgeons. During a simple vaginaplasty the vaginal muscles are tightened to address patient concerns. Laxity in the vagina is common result of multiple prgnancies which cause the opening of the vagina to be damaged and enlarged. Tightening this area along with vaginal muscles will effect sexual pleasure for both a female and her partner due to increased friction and sensation.

Many young women come in with great concerns about the assymetry of the labia. If we examine ourselves closely we will see that most our bilateral features are indeed assymetric. Our eye aperture or shape, the corners of out mouth, our cheek bones, the breasts, the size of our feet and on and on. Same is true of the labia. One labia can be much bigger than the other. It may have a different shape-pointy instead of round. One labia may even be bilobed. The crura on one side may be prominent while on the other absent all together. The length of the labia may also differ as well as the color of the mucosa. If the discrepancy is so large as to be very disturbing, one can of course recontour the “offensive” labia to match the side we like. Labiaplasty, is a simple procedure if done well by expert doctors. The sutures used are disolvable and the repair should leave no permanent visible scars. No bandages are needed and rarely one needs pain meds aside from extra strength tylenol. One should refrain from sex for about 4-6 wks depending on the healing. The surgery can be done under local anesthesia if one chooses. So, if one is very distraught with the asymmetry of the labia, one should definitely come for a consultation to see if the surgery will help.No Comments »

It seems that divorce is on the rise again. I think it may be due to the economic strain that many people are under. Very often divorce occurs as a surprise to at least one of the partners. Yet most likely the signs were there but we just choose to ignore thoughts that are too uncomfortable for words. Now that the reality of the divorce is here, and the cause may be a younger woman, many ex wives to be turn to vaginal plastic surgery. Why? Well, the couple most likely had children and if the delivery was vaginal the vaginal canal stretched and the introitus became lax. The episiotomy, even though sutured well, may have not healed tightly causing even more laxity. Most women feel that the vaginal laxity does not matter to the first partner-the father of the children. After all that what happens when you have children and the children matter the most. The children now come first and most women do not bother even thinking about their sexuality or vaginal laxity. However, when divorce occurs, suddenly the sexuality matters and of course vaginal laxity or firmness becomes a great focus of attention. So many women come for consultation to find out what is involved. Vaginal tightening procedure is simple and has very few complications. It takes about one hour with some sedation and a local anesthetic. Either the old episiotomy is opened and repaired with tighter musculature closure thus thightening the introitus. Sometimes there are sutures placed within the introitus or under the hymineal ring to tighten it. Discomfort is minimal but there is no sexual activity recommended for about six weeks. There are no sutures to be removed and there are no bandages. One of course should refrain from using a tampax during the recovery period. Anyone who thinks that they may be a candidate should come in for a consultation. At least the concerns may be discussed and the doctor can explain if one indeed is a candidate for this procedure.No Comments »

Giving birth is one of the greatest, most fulfilling aspects of life. It’s truly incredible to think about how the body is able to adapt and change to grow this little human inside of you. Then the day comes, the baby arrives and you are overjoyed to meet the little human you’d grown so accustomed to having inside you. You can’t wait to take the baby home and begin your new life together.
Then you get home, look in the mirror and go, “Wait- what just happened to my body? Another human just came out of it?!” As time goes on, the body begins to readjust and settle into its “new state of normal.” For some women, this means it will go back to their pre-baby body almost entirely. For other women, this achievement will be next to impossible no matter how great their diet or how stringent their exercise regime. And while these women wouldn’t take back the experience of having children for the world, many are left wishing they could look as great as they looked before, as great as they now feel.
Dr. Helen Colen, Dr. Kari Colen, and Dr. Robert Porges have helped countless women get their bodies back after pregnancy. They understand that the individual needs of each patient are unique and thus will plan a procedural course with you that is designed to meet your specific needs.

A tender and relatively new procedure that is quickly gaining attention and popularity is Vaginal Rejuvenation. Vaginal Rejuvenation is a term used, in fact, to cover several various procedures such as:
* Labiaplasty — A procedure done to reduce excess or elongated labia minor and/or labia majora (the inner and outer lips)
* Augmentation Labiaplasty — A procedure which uses a fat transfer from another area of the patients body to rejuvenate or “plum” the labia majora
* Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation — Also called Vaginoplasty, a procedure performed on the vagina to rid excess vaginal tissue
* Hymenoplasty — A procedure to restore the hymen (usually done for social, cultural or religious reasons)
* Vulvar Lipoplasty — A procedure to remove excess fat from the mons pubis
* Clitoral Hood Reduction — A procedural reduction of the tissue covering the clitoris, generally to make stimulation of the clitoris easier.
Commonly misunderstood, Vaginal Rejuvenation can restore confidence in women who’ve been dealing with embarrassment and even pain caused from elongated labia and other issues. In addition to the procedures listed above, we also offer a G-Spot G-Shot, which can make the sometimes illusive G-Spot easier to stimulate.
If you have further questions about Vaginal Rejuvenation or to schedule a consultation with Dr. Helen Colen, Dr. Kari Colen or Dr. Robert Porges we invite you to call our New York offices at (212) 772-1300 or send us an e-mail.
