Vaginal rejuvenation is a marketing term referring to vaginoplasty, or the surgical tightening of the vaginal canal. Birth trauma, tissue stretching, and improper surgical healing are the usual reasons for requesting vaginal rejuvenation. Surgery usually entails a modification of a standard gynecologic procedure called “posterior repair” along with rebuilding of the perineum (the space between the vagina and rectum). This procedure was traditionally performed for a fallen or prolapsed rectum, or rectocele. A rectocele is a bulge of rectum going into the vagina. A similar appearing vaginal bulge is an enterocele. It is a bulge of small bowel going into the vagina. Gynecologists and urogynecologists have the most training performing these types of surgery. Lasers, scissors, cautery units, knives are used in surgery. Excellent results have been achieved by all these methods.
The didactic portion along with the clinical hands-on exposure will allow attendees to gain a comprehensive understanding of the procedure. The format used in this activity is an effective method for knowledgeable OB/Gyn physicians to expand their surgical abilities safely.
