HOME PAGE / LASER VAGINAL REJUVENATION® (LVR®)

Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation (LVR®) is both safe and effective. It is a modification of an existing gynecologic procedure (anterior posterior repair) employed throughout the world for the treatment of vaginal relaxation and its associated symptoms, primarily stress urinary incontinence. LVR® modifies this 70-year old procedure to achieve enhanced sexual gratification by using precision laser-plastic surgery techniques. We substitute the laser for conventionals scalpels because this instrument is far more accurate, gentle on tissues, and hemostatic. The vaginal sculpting and restructuring performed by LVR® would not be possible with a conventional scalpel or scissors. LVR® employs a computer-controlled 15W laser. The laser is a precision cutting instrument that minimizes bleeding and bruising, seals lymphatics, and promotes healing.

Women are multiorgasmic. 
The female sexual response cycle is unimpeded by a required refractory period that prevents successive orgasms in the male. Principal understanding of the physiology of the human sexual response emanates from observational research studies by William H. Masters, M.D. and Virginia E. Johnson. The researchers tested 382 women and 312 men in more than 10,000 episodes of sexual activity. They also studied more than 7,500 cycles (one cycle is an individual episode of sexual activity) of female sexual response during intercourse, masturbation or oral sex. They were the first researchers to put forth a four stage model that described and explained these natural physiologic changes. The four stages are excitation, plateau, orgasm, and resolution. We developed the LVR® program by listening and caring about the needs of women in this area of sexual gratification. We also integrated the historical research of Masters and Johnson into the ultimate individual design of each of the laser surgical procedures. Women of the world inspired all of the surgical designs. 

Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation (LVR®) is a one hour or less outpatient surgical procedure. The procedure is designed to enhance the feelings of sexual gratification. This is accomplished through a reconstruction process of vital areas of vaginal relaxation that are essential to sexual gratification, namely:

- the outer third of the vagina;
- the orgasmic platform, internal and external vaginal diameter;
- introitus (vaginal opening);
- perineal body.

This is accomplished by reconstructing the weakened tissues responsible for vaginal relaxation. Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation effectively enhances vaginal muscle tone, strength, and control. It also decreases the internal and external vaginal diameters and builds and strengthens the perineal body. For pain control, a “pudendal block” provides patients with 18-24 hours of post-op pain control anesthesia.

Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation® for the enhancement of sexual gratification is the modification of a standard existing gynecologic vaginal surgery used throughout the world for the treatment of vaginal relaxation and its associated symptoms, primarily that of stress urinary incontinence (involuntary loss of urine with stress such as coughing, sneezing, laughing, etc.). Under these circumstances the vagina is no longer at its physiologically optimum sexual functioning state. In short, the sensual side of female sexual gratification is diminished. Thus, vaginal relaxation has a detrimental effect on sexual gratification because of the reduction of sexual feelings or pleasure.

Kegels
Granted, Kegels may help some otherwise healthy women who wish to tune their pelvic floor muscles and invigorate their sex lifes. To a degree, they may also help symptoms associated with very minimal stress urinary incontinence. But as a treatment for serious vaginal relaxation, the power of Kegels is premised on some rather dubious assumptions: (1) that a distended vagina can be tightened solely by strengthening the PC muscle; (2) that it is possible for a person to exercise enough control over the PC to significantly strenghten it; and (3) that there are no significant injuries to the muscles or fascia governing the vagina.

The specific medical and aesthetic conditions treatable with Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation are:

(1) Vaginal Relaxation: Vaginal relaxation is the loss of the optimum structural architecture of the vagina. In the vaginal relaxation process, the vaginal muscles become relaxed with poor tone, strength, control and support. The internal and external vaginal diameters can greatly increase. The muscles of the perineum (the group of supporting muscles right outside the vaginal opening at the bottom) thin and separate in the midline producing a weakened, poorly supportive, thinned out perennial body. Under these circumstances the vagina is no longer at its physiologically optimum sexual functioning state. In short, the sensual side of female sexual gratification is diminished. Thus, vaginal relaxation has a detrimental effect on sexual gratification because of the reduction of sexual feelings or pleasure.

Defining the Right/Tight Fit
Under normal conditions, the vagina resembles a tube suspended within the pelvis from the uterus, and is held in place by a set of muscles and connective tissues called fascia. Ideally, the vagina’s “antechamber” (introitus) and internal diameter should be small enough to allow for comfortable penetration by two fingers (the size of the average penis), and the internal mucosa (membranes) should be flexible but not flaccid. Some women (and their partners) prefer even tighter vaginas, and this is possible through LVR® surgery. What happens to change the diameter of a vagina? Think of it as the difference between any set of tight versus flabby muscles. Well-defined abs are smaller than tummies with relaxed muscles. In terms of the vagina, the structural architecture is compromised when the muscles separate, and function poorly in terms of tone and strength. The muscles may also have been torn or otherwise damaged by childbirth or other trauma to the vaginal canal. The diameter – both internally and externally – of the vagina increases, which creates a relaxation and enlargement effect that leaves a woman with diminished sexual sensitivity, arousal, gratification and an increased likelihood of developing conditions such as stress urinary incontinence. 

(2) Stress Urinary Incontinence: Involuntary loss of urine associated with coughing, sneezing, laughing and exercising (including sexual activity). It is caused by a weakening of the vaginal muscles as well as damage to the tissues (fascia) and ligaments supporting the bladder. Stress urinary incontinence is often the result of vaginal (also called pelvic) relaxation stemming from childbirth, aging or trauma.

(3) Pelvic Support Defects: As if stress urinary incontience weren’t bad enough, there are other pelvic support defects that may be caused by childbirth, inherited pelvic weakness, chronic cough, abdominal pressure and obesity. The pelvic organs (bladder, vagina, uterus and rectum) are held in position by three types of supports: (1) muscles; (2) sheets of tissues called fascia; and (3) ligaments. When these supports become damaged, one or more of the organs may sag and, occasionally, even protrude outside the vagina. These are called pelvic support defects. During childbirth, for example, the muscles, fascia and ligaments separate and may become weakened as the baby passes through the birth canal. This weakening gradually worsens and, in later years, may cause the pelvic organs to drop from their normal position.
