The FemiLift™ – Laser Vaginal Tightening
Non-Surgical Laser Vaginal Tightening at Alliance ObGyn Consultants
Vaginal looseness, or decreased sensation with sex, is a common complaint in many sexually active women. Often, but not always, this may occur as a result of vaginal deliveries or from having had large sized partners. Although the change in sexual pleasure may be subtle in some cases, it may be drastic in others to the point of significantly affecting personal relationships and/or marriages. Some women may also experience involuntary loss of urine during exercise, laughing, coughing, and even during sex – this is referred to as urinary stress incontinence. These changes may cause individuals to feel self-conscious and inhibit them from enjoying sex or engaging in sexual activity altogether.
Until recently, the only options have been Kegel exercises or surgery. Although Kegels are important to strengthen the pelvic floor they are often insufficient. Surgery in the form of a Vaginoplasty, to tighten the vagina, or a mid-urethral sling to support the urethra to control leakage, are good options, but they are associated with risks and the need for downtime. Now, with advances in technology, there are some additional and exciting options available through Alliance ObGyn Consultant.
Laser Vaginal Tightening with FemiLift is a breakthrough procedure that can help restore a youthful vagina and improve urinary stress incontinence. Using a unique vaginal probe, laser energy is delivered safely to the full circumference of the vagina to promote collagen production and remodeling. This comfortable and non-invasive treatment tightens the vagina and strengthens the supporting ligaments surrounding the bladder and urethra.
The Board-certification in Obstetrics & Gynecology that Dr. Obianwu holds, along with his extensive training and experience in operating laser equipment, make this procedure extremely safe. Because this treatment is non-surgical and requires no downtime, it is a safer alternative to traditional vaginal rejuvenation procedures such as vaginoplasty and suburethral slings.
Other benefits of non-invasive laser vaginal tightening include increased sexual gratification to both, the patient and her partner as well as reduction in stress urinary incontinence symptoms. These benefits may be achieved with no surgery, no downtime, no anesthesia and no pain. A series of three treatments, 4-5 weeks apart, are recommended for optimal long lasting results.
