A quick search on your smartphone is all it takes to know that the topic of vaginal rejuvenation is everywhere. As awareness for this treatment grows, more and more doctors of varying specialties are offering vaginal rejuvenation. While greater availability seems like a positive, it can also mean a lower quality of care and sub-optimal results.
Where should you go for treatment, and who should you trust?
To help you get the best possible results, here are some pointers to keep in mind when seeking vaginal rejuvenation:
You need a specialist!
You wouldn’t go to your dentist to remove a suspicious mole on your back. So why would you consider getting vaginal rejuvenation from anyone other than a doctor who specializes in pelvic medicine? Dr. Oscar A. Aguirre is a fellowship-trained urogynecologist with over 20 years of experience performing female genital cosmetic surgery. Dr. Aguirre is also a leader in vaginal rejuvenation, and was just the third doctor in the country to perform Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation® (LVR®) and Designer Laser Vaginoplasty® (DLV®).
You don’t always know what you need.
You may think you need vaginal rejuvenation with Geneveve™, a radiofrequency treatment that helps tighten the vaginal entrance and enhance sexual satisfaction, but then discover after consultation that you’re better suited for FemiLift™, a laser treatment that resurfaces the whole circumference of your vagina to improve vaginal laxity and stress urinary incontinence, or, perhaps, a combination of the two. Only a doctor who is trained in the nuances of pelvic medicine like Dr. Aguirre can accurately diagnose your symptoms and determine an optimal course of treatment.
You’ll get better results with a specialist.
A doctor who is trained in urogynecology has acquired the proper training to perform all types of urogynecological procedures, including vaginal rejuvenation, labiaplasty, and so much more. Experts have more experience and possess a wider scope of knowledge, which affords them flexibility to tailor treatment to your specific needs and provide alternative therapies, if necessary.
Dr. Aguirre has dedicated his career to female pelvic medicine and works diligently to support women in obtaining the highest quality of treatments for their needs. He was recently honored by RealSelf, a website dedicated to patient education, for his outstanding participation and commitment to patient care.
