Incisionless Vaginal Rejuvenation®
The two main types of vaginal rejuvenation surgery being performed throughout the world are Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation® (LVR®) and Incisionless Vaginal Rejuvenation® (IVR®). Both of these methods utilize a laser. LVR procedure utilizes a laser to create incisions, perform dissection, and assist in modifications of traditional vaginal cut and sew surgery used for pelvic organ prolapse. LVR was developed by Dr. David Matlock in California.
Incisionless Vaginal Rejuvenation® utilizes a laser and a tiny laser fiber to deliver pulsed laser energy to the stretched connective tissue surrounding the vagina. The proprietary method and laser developed by Dr. Zipper delivers small amounts of modulated laser energy that fosters the shrinking of existing collagen, the formation of new connective tissue and a remodeling of the stretched vaginal architecture. The result is a smaller, natural vagina.
IVR is an outpatient procedure that is typically completed in 45 minutes. You will have the option of local anesthesia or general anesthesia. There are no catheters. You will be able to shower the same evening. You will be able to drive the next day. Strenuous activity and sexual intercourse should be avoided for four to six weeks. Most patients report minimal discomfort.
