Vulvo-Vaginal Cosmetic Surgery

Vaginal Reconstructive Surgery

With the aging process or after childbirth, the female body changes. Some of these changes also include the vaginal area. Vaginal stretching and relaxation can cause pain and discomfort in daily and routine activities, as well as pain with intercourse. In some women the relaxation in the vagina can cause a diminished sexual response in them and their partner.

Dr. Armity Simon has been counseling women about this aspect of their health, throughout her entire professional life. She has been helping women achieve a more satisfactory anatomical health in their female genitalia. These procedures have been offered to our patients discretely at their office visits.

With the trend of advertising for the plastic surgery for the female genital tract, our practice feels that women should be informed about who is the most capable person to handle these specific treatment options. Dr. Simon has been trained in all aspects of female genital tract surgery and complications. She has been assessing and performing the vaginal reconstruction surgeries to achieve the optimal anatomical size and performance that is unique to each and every individual.

Our goal is to enable our patients to feel comfortable in inquiring about these procedures without the need to enter practices that only want to set “trends”.

We take care of the whole woman and are more than happy to discuss these procedures with you. Please note if you have any of the following symptoms, and if the answer is yes, you may be a candidate for vaginal reconstructive surgery:

  • vaginal relaxation
  • decreased sensation during intercourse
  • pressure in the vagina and rectum
  • tampons falling out
  • sexual partners complaining about change in anatomy

Abnormal Bleeding / Irregular Cycles

Menstrual cycles of 21-35 days are considered normal. Cycles longer or shorter than this are irregular and should be evaluated by your doctor. Irregular cycles may occur because of weight loss or gain, vigorous exercise, stress illness, or other changes that affect your body. For the first few years after menarche, menstrual periods are often irregular. A young woman may have only three or four periods a year. Menstrual cycles usually become lighter and less frequent as menopause approaches and hormone levels decrease. In some cases the cycles will become erratic and heavier around perimenopause.

Bleeding that is heavier than usual, or lasts longer than a week may also be abnormal. It can have a number of abnormal causes such as hormonal imbalance, coagulation disorders( problems with blood clotting) uterine polyps, uterine fibroids (benign tumors of the uterine muscle), uterine adenomyosis (sponginess), hyperplasia (pre-cancerous growth), cancer.

Non-Surgical Treatments:

Medical treatment with birth control pills, hormones, and other homeopathic and conventional medications is the first line of therapy for the treatment of irregular bleeding and heavy periods in our practice.

Surgical Treatments:

If medical options do not work or are not the appropriate treatment option for the disorder, the following surgical options can be recommended. The goal in our practice is to allow every patient to explore all options prior to definitive surgery. We feel it is your right to know that there are other methods of treatment besides hysterectomy, and we are willing to try all options. It is important to understand that your physicians will educate you about the best route of surgery for your particular case. Our goal is to have our patients have the safest, most comfortable surgery and to be able to return to normal activity as soon as possible.
