Vaginal rejuvenation can dramatically improve your quality of life, but many women feel uncomfortable discussing their concerns. Others feel like these are problems they just have to learn to live with. Dr. Karen Leong has the empathy and experience to help you open up about these intimate issues.
What is Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Many women will experience symptoms such as loss of vaginal tone, vaginal dryness, urinary incontinence, or uncomfortable intercourse. Many others feel self-conscious about the appearance of their intimate areas. Vaginal rejuvenation treatments can address all of these concerns.
What Vaginal Rejuvenation Options Do I Have?
If you feel self-conscious about the appearance of your labia minora (the inner lips of the vulva), a labiaplasty can reshape and reduce this area, so you feel comfortable with your body. Labiaplasty can let you wear clothes such as leggings or bathing suits, and it can make sex and physical activity more comfortable.
Labia Majora Reduction
A labia majora reduction reduces the labia majora, the outer lips of the vulva. Some women have long or bothersome labia that can make everyday activities physically uncomfortable. This reduction removes the excess tissue, firming and tightening the remaining labia.
The labia majora can lose their youthful appearance due to aging and hormonal changes. If you feel like your vulva has thinned and want to see it look fuller and younger, a labia puff can help. Using dermal fillers or grafting fat from another area of the body, Dr. Leong restores the appearance of youthful labia.
The vagina can become increasingly slack over time due to childbirth, age and loss of collagen, or other causes. During a vaginoplasty, Dr. Leong will tighten and repair the vagina, making it tighter and healthier so that women can enjoy a pleasurable sex life again.
Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation
Using the BellaV™ by Lutronic laser system, laser vaginal rejuvenation stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin in the vaginal walls. Not only does this make the vagina healthier and tighter, but it can also help support the bladder and improve symptoms of leakage or stress incontinence.

Is There Any Downtime with Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Downtime will vary according to the procedure. Laser vaginal rejuvenation requires no downtime, while a vaginoplasty can take up to six weeks to heal completely. After labiaplasty or labia majora reduction, you will need a few days to recover at home, followed by several weeks of light activity before Dr. Leong clears you to return to your usual routine.
Am I a Good Candidate for Vaginal Rejuvenation?
If you have concerns about the appearance or function of your intimate areas, you will almost certainly make a good candidate for at least one type of vaginal rejuvenation. Laser vaginal rejuvenation works safely and painlessly for nearly everyone and requires no downtime, making it a good option even for people with no time for recovery. Other procedures like labiaplasty can produce more dramatic results but require some recovery time.
“I had a botched surgery in 2018 which left me without a nipple and one breast at a c the other a dd… I was absolutely petrified of going under the knife again. Then I developed BII symptoms and knew that the implants had to come out. I researched dr’s who supported BII -(many surgeons Don’t want to believe it) and I found dr prong who was supportive, kind and understood. I have always struggled with stubborn back fat and a bit of excess in between my thighs so dr Leong removed the implants, did liposuction to my arms sides and thighs and performed a fat transfer to my breasts. I am5 days post op and I cannot believe how amazing I feel. She is the best. I would never go anywhere else and would recommend her to anyone. Xo”*
