Vaginal Rejuvenation-A ''Private" Makeover (Sunday Star)

With the standards of beauty and perfection constantly being raised, a growing number of women are now choosing to rejuvenate their vaginas to enhance both form and function.
Never before has a woman's privates generated so much hype, at least, not in the open.
What has typically been the subject of hushed conversation between close girlfriends and one's gynecologist is now coming out in the open.
Not only are women openly discussing vaginas these days, but there is also a new fad that has hit today's Malaysian women and generated quite a number of raised eyebrows-designer vaginas.
As women's awareness of their bodies start to increase, more and more women are resorting to vagina rejuvenation to restore the youthful form and function of their genitalia.
Just like face-lift or breast augmentation, women can now also have more attractive and functional genitalia through vaginal rejuvenation.
In the past, this type of operation was only performed for cases of serious diseases or injuries, but today, more women are requesting for more aesthetically-pleasing genitals to improve the quality of their lives and relationships.
But what is an attractive vagina in the first place?
An attractive or "perfect" vagina can be described as tight, light-skinned with symmetrical inner labia sheared to tiny strips of skin that cannot be seen when you stand.
Sadly, the relentless passing of time, as well as changes to hormonal levels, can cause significant functional and structural changes to a woman's genital.
Pregnancy, menopause and an active sexual lifestyle can lead to the loosening of the vaginal muscles and soft tissues over time, causing laxity and loss of contraction during intimacy.
When a woman goes through hormonal shifts, which can occur during pregnancy or menopause, her body undergoes changes as well. This can affect both the and vagina and vulva.
Examples of changes that can occur to the vaginal area are:-
1. Thinning of vagina walls
2. Lack of folds
3. Dryness or lack of vaginal lubrication
4. Loss of elasticity or flexibility
The external area of the vulva can also experience scarring, abnormal tearing, darkening, wrinkling and lengthening of the labia majora during the course of a woman's lifetime.
All this can adversely affect a woman's general well-being, as well as sexual satisfaction of herself and her partner.
It can also severely affect her self-esteem and confidence, which in turn can cause her relationships or marriage to suffer.
Unfortunately, the body is not able to repair the looseness of the vagina-hence why women have resorted to vaginal rejuvenation.
Essentially vagina rejuvenation includes:-
1. Designer vaginoplasty
2. Vaginal tightening
5. G-spot rejuvenation
Many natural and non-invasive treatments are being developed in vaginal rejuvenation, making it relatively painless, safer and more affordable.
As a result more and more women have started to opt for these procedures.
Many women might be up in arms after reading this article.
After all, in a world where women are constantly being held up to unrealistic beauty standards, the emergence of vaginal rejuvenation means that now a woman's privates could become an additional feature by which they are judged.
