This is the only surgical unit of its kind in the world. Here Vaginoplasty, labiaplasty, hymen reconstruction or modification and total functional vaginal and pelvic reconstruction can be done in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures.
This aspect of our practice is extremely exciting. Vaginal Labial Plasty® Surgery, serves many functions: it can improve the appearance of the vaginal introitus, relieve discomfort, aid in proper hygiene, increase sexual satisfaction, and boost self-confidence. The VLP® procedure may be performed to correct internal or external problems. Internal vaginoplasty tightens muscles in the vagina that have loosened from aging or childbirth, while external vaginoplasty trims the vaginal lips (labia minora) to remove excess skin and achieve a balance in size. Hymen reconstruction and removal can also be performed. Vaginal rejuvenation surgery restores the vagina to its youthful appearance and performance by tightening and strengthening the vagina and pelvic floor, as well as making any desired cosmetic adjustments. All this leads to enhanced libido. Other problems such as rectocoeles or bladder neck problems or enlarged clitoral hood can be also corrected. Stress incontinence can also be addressed. Incisions are placed as inconspicuously as possible and dissolving stitches are used to minimize post-operative scars. Any woman whatever her age or hormonal status can look great, feel good and have a great sex life with confidence and satisfaction. These Vaginal Labial Plasty® procedures can be done under sedation or general anesthesia depending on the patient’s preference and the extent of the problem. This surgery is performed by either one or both of the top surgeons. If the problem is mainly cosmetic in nature then it is performed and corrected by Dr. Helen Colen one of the top plastic surgeons in the USA who has 30 year experience in plastic surgery and has been performing this surgery for all those years. Being one of the first female plastic surgeons in this country, many of the vaginal problems were referred to her as women felt much more comfortable discussing these problems with a female physician. Her experience is enormous. Often this surgery is combined with other plastic surgery procedures so that the patient not only looks better but their sexual function is enormously improved.
If the vaginal problem is functional and more complex and requires reconstruction of the vaginal walls, or stress incontinence is also a problem, then one of the top gynecologists, Dr. Robert Porges, joins the effort. Thus both functional and cosmetic problems can be addressed at the same time in the privacy and safety of the best office surgery unit by two top surgeons. Both physicians understand the whole range of female problems which may result from multiple births, aging and menopause. They understand the embarrassment of stress incontinence or the problems with constipation when the vaginal and rectal wall is weak. Hormonal treatments are also explained and addressed trying to clear all the confusion that exists to date.
In short, two top physicians in neighbouring specialties, came together to address the physical and sexual health of women of any age and lead the way to a comprehensive female care which will result in a very productive, healthy, youthful and satisfying life.
