Contact Mayo Medical P.C. in Cortland, New York to reclaim a part of your youth.
Cosmetic gynecology is an up-and-coming field, as more and more women seek procedures to improve the physical appearance and function of the vagina and labia. With age comes many life events such as pregnancy and delivery that can affect the structure of the vagina, and even its physical response to stimulus. Dr. Mayo is knowledgeable in the foundations for cosmetic gynecology and offers a variety of services to meet women’s needs.
The most common types of cosmetic gynecology services are vaginoplasty and labiaplasty, with numerous ways to execute each procedure.
The vagina loses elasticity over time especially after childbirth, and a vaginoplasty procedure is often sought after to shrink the width of the vagina by tightening the tissues.
A labiaplasty procedure targets the size and shape of the labia, which are often insecurities for many women. With the wide variety of structures of the labia among women, an enlarged or asymmetrical labia is not uncommon. A labiaplasty aims to remove excess skin to either reduce the size of your labia or to make the sides symmetrical.
Dr. Mayo employs ThermiVa® and ThermiSmooth® procedures, which make use of radiofrequency energy to heat tissue gently and restructure specific organs superficially. ThermiVa is a vulvovaginal application that uses radiofrequency energy to shift the vaginal anatomy, and ThermiSmooth focuses on the tightening and rejuvenation of targeted skin areas.
Thermi products are gentle procedures that require no downtime. Typically, results are visible after 3-6 applications.
It’s easy to lose self-esteem when your organs don’t look or function the way they used to. Dr. Mayo performs cosmetic gynecological procedures that tighten the vagina and skin to empower you to embrace the aging process. Women experiencing problems with the elasticity of their vaginas, such as loss of physical stimulus or urinary incontinence, should consider cosmetic gynecology.
Dr. Mayo may also recommend waiting until you’re finished having children to undergo these procedures. Doing so eliminates the need for additional repairs as childbirth may reverse or alter your prior procedure.
