All About Vaginal Rejuvenation

30 Jun

More than ever, women are empowered to decide for themselves how their bodies look, feel and function. Even the most intimate areas of a woman’s anatomy can be sculpted and refined to enhance her sensuality, invigorate her sexuality and maybe even invite a sense of sexual prowess. All this and more is possible for vaginal rejuvenation / labia reduction patients from Beverly Hills and Los Angeles.

Labia reduction is not a new procedure, but is receiving fresh attention now that so many women are determined to seize their sexuality and discuss issues affecting their sex lives with their doctors. If you suffer from extended or stretched labia that are uncomfortable, cause embarrassment, hygiene frustration or are even painful during sex, labia reduction surgery can alleviate these problems. Your vagina can be a beautiful declaration of your taste and style rather than an impediment or humiliation.

Labia reduction is a procedure to reduce the size and length of the labia minora (the inner lips) and/or the labia majora (the outer lips). The labia minora are necessary to cover the clitoris and vaginal opening and can be surgically reduced while still maintaining their necessary function. Also known as labiaplasty, this procedure can help women who experience pain, humiliation and hygiene problems due to large and protruding labia. The labia majora can also be decreased in size by reducing fat deposits.

If you were born with very thin labia or if you’ve lost volume over time or due to trauma, labia rejuvenation and labia repair can enhance your labia and add overall shape to the outer areas of your vagina. A pubic lift can also be performed when the pubic area descends or collapses downwards due to weight fluctuation or age. This procedure raises the entire area by surgically removing excess skin and fat from the region and then re-draping the skin to lift the pubic appearance.

Tips for a Successful Facelift

6 Sep

Facelifts can be performed by any surgeon, but for superior results, it’s best to consult an experienced plastic surgeon with thousands of hours in the operating room doing facelifts. Here’s a video that can help with your decision. Watch it here.

FaceliftOur best facelift candidates are realistic about expectations, strictly follow the pre-and post-operative instructions and seek consultations with several plastic surgeons. Chemistry and trust are an important part of the equation, as are personality and bedside manner. It’s a good idea to look at a surgeon’s before and after photos of clients who have had facelifts.

Here are some other helpful tips if you’re contemplating a facelift.

  • Gather information and learn about the benefits and risks of the procedure.
  • It’s easy to think that plastic surgery will solve all your problems or make you look like a movie star. Understanding the limitations of surgery is essential for overall satisfaction with your results.
  • Facelifts are not covered by insurance, so make sure you understand all the charges involved. Your doctor may offer financing options.
  • Make sure you understand the risks and complications of surgery.

Get started by requesting a consultation online. We’d love to help you decide if a facelift is right for you.

Best, WGS

Marina Plastic Surgery Requests New or Gently Used Bra Donations

27 Aug

Marina Plastic Surgery is collecting new and gently worn bras of all sizes to donate to Breast Oasis, a nonprofit founded by John Pedersen, M.D. Breast Oasis is dedicated to supporting communities by providing teens and women who may not be able to afford them with clean, certified, gently used bras.

“There are thousands of women in our own community and across the country who have a tough time affording even basic essentials, such as bras,” Charlie Sheridan, our Practice Manager says. “Simply choose the clean, lightly used or new bras that you would like to donate, and bring it to the donation box at Marina Plastic Surgery. You don’t have to be a client of ours to donate.

“With all the awareness about breast surgery and breast size in our cosmetic practice, it’s a perfect and natural fit to collect these garments and donate them to Breast Oasis,” Charlie said. “We proudly display two collection stations all year long. We get the bras professionally cleaned and package them nicely, and we’ll even include a personal note for the recipient.”
