What Dr. Eilber Can Say about
Vaginal Rejuvenation

You hear the term “vaginal rejuvenation” all the time. I’m sure different ideas are running through your head of exactly what that means: improving the appearance of external genitals, “tightening” of the vagina, etc. You would probably be surprised to learn what vaginal rejuvenation is.

    • Surprisingly, vaginal rejuvenation is not even a real medical term.
    • The term vaginal rejuvenation is actually a marketing tool, and women often equate it with a “mommy makeover” for down there. 
    • Even medical personnel don’t know what vaginal rejuvenation is. When polled, some indicate that it is vaginal tightening, others that it’s a cosmetic procedure for the labia, and others think it’s a bladder lift. 
    • While some “vaginal rejuvenation” procedures, such as a bladder lift, are medically indicated, they may not be covered by insurance if the physician performing the procedure indicates that it’s cosmetic and does not use the correct diagnosis for health insurance payment. 
    • From issues ranging from childbirth to aging to genetics, learn why some women opt for this procedure (both surgical and nonsurgical), and the various methods for carrying out specific goals.
    • Let’s have an interesting conversation about this growing trend in women’s health.
