VIPS’ 101 Guide To Understanding Vaginal Rejuvenation
Bringing a new life into this world is one of the most beautiful moments in a woman’s life. As part of society, we praise mothers for their courage and determination to have and take care of babies. However, many of us do not see the toils and hardships a mother has to go through, both physically and emotionally.
Childbirth and hormonal changes can cause several conditions harmful to a woman’s quality of life, such as stress urinary incontinence, loss of lubrication, vaginal laxity, and so much more. As plastic surgeons, it is our responsibility to help women improve their vaginal health and regain their self-respect!
Improving The Appearance of The Labia: Is a Labiaplasty What You’re Really Looking for?
As we think of the vaginal rejuvenation process, the appearance of the labia is the first thing that comes to mind. It is true – childbirth can be very harsh on a woman’s labia minora.
For a few years now, with the help of social media, non-surgical labiaplasty has been met with a rise in popularity. While, until recent years, surgical vaginal rejuvenation was the prominent approach to enhanced vaginal health, today’s rhythm of life has switched women’s attention towards less-invasive procedures, with faster results and minimal downtime.
Following this trend, our goal for today is to shed some light on two non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatments renowned on the plastic surgery market for their efficiency and superior results: AVIVA FEMtite and FORMA V!
FEMtite: Minimally-Invasive Labiaplasty
Understanding The FEMtite Treatment
The FEMtite treatment harnesses the benefits brought by the AVIVA FEMtite device to dramatically shrink and reduce vulvar tissue, such as the labia and the clitoral hood. This technologically-superior device uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat the vaginal tissue, improving several postpartum issues, such as enlarged labia minora and vaginal laxity.
Once the plastic surgeon makes a small incision into the dermal tissue, a small-scale probe is introduced, which delivers radiofrequency energy in a temperature-controlled fashion, stimulating collagen and elastin production, as well as shrinking and tightening the tissue. For further tightening, the plastic surgeon can combine this procedure with Morpheus8, a radiofrequency microneedling procedure.

Consultation with Dr. Vinyard
During your complimentary consultation, Dr. William J. Vinyard, MD, FACS, will create the perfect atmosphere for you to feel safe and comfortable. Undergoing a cosmetic procedure can be a source of anxiety for some, which is normal. However, with Dr. Vinyard’s help, you will trade the anxiety with a feeling of excitement in no time!
Apart from creating a welcoming atmosphere, Dr. Vinyard will assess your medical condition. He will consider numerous factors, such as current medication, previous treatments, and your lifestyle, before discussing your treatment goals.
Recovery after The FEMtite Treatment
The beautiful aspect surrounding this procedure is that FEMtite is an outpatient procedure, allowing you to return to your favorite activities right after the procedure. As you resume your daily life, it will be easy to notice that the downtime is minimal – only mild pain levels might subsist for a few days. However, to avoid any unwanted complications, Dr. Vinyard will encourage you to refrain from certain activities, such as sexual intercourse and heavy lifting.
Mommy Makeovers & FORMA V Treatments: Recovering Some of Your Youth
Many of our female patients are unsure about what vaginal rejuvenation treatment they can include in their mommy makeover. We’re going to make things easier by presenting to you one of the latest technological advancements in the vaginal rejuvenation field: FORMA V!
Revive your confidence and boost yourself!
Understanding The FORMA V Treatment’s Minimally-Invasive Technology
FORMA V was a long-expected addition to the non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation field, following in the footsteps of radiofrequency-based devices. During the treatment, appropriate heat levels are applied to the interior vaginal canal and the external labia, acting as a stimulus to the vaginal tissue and the collagen and elastin production in this area. This inturn increases the support of the pelvic floor which has been associated with improvement in mild to moderate stress urinary incontinence some women experience after childbirth. In addition, the heat stimulates increased blood supply to the vaginal canal through a process of angiogenesis. The increased blood supply helps improve most women’s dryness issues by providing increased lubrication.
The treatment usually lasts approximately 35 minutes. As the heat is being delivered, the device monitors and controls heat levels, preventing any unwanted tissue burns. Patients generally do not experience much discomfort during the treatment.
Consultation with Dr. Vinyard
Before moving forward with the procedure, Dr. Vinyard’s principal concern is to find out if you are an ideal candidate for FORMA V or not. If you are experiencing the side effects of childbirth, especially vaginal laxity, loss of sexual sensation, or Stress Urinary Incontinence, the FORMA V is a great option!
Always remember that the relationship between the plastic surgeon and the patient is imperative for a successful procedure. A welcoming atmosphere can only be built on open communication, so do not refrain from asking Dr. Vinyard anything that might concern you during your complimentary consultation!
Recovery after The FORMA V Treatment
FORMA V is an outpatient procedure, with no postoperative care required – you can safely return to your daily activities, as well as athletic activities or sexual intercourse, though we do recommend that you refrain for a few days after the procedure.
Once you return home, you will begin to notice dramatic improvements during the upcoming weeks. Regular maintenance check-ups can help further prolong your results.
