Procedures

  • ClimaxShot

    A procedure that uses your body’s natural responses to rejuvenate vaginal tissue and maximize function. The ClimaxShot, fondly known as the LibidoReviver is a non-surgical procedure designed to help women improve their sexual health and well-being. The ClimaxShot may be recommended for women who experience: (1) Low Libido (2) Trouble Reaching Orgasm (3) Painful Intercourse (4) Menopause (5) Leaky Bladder (6) Incontinence. This is a single visit, in office treatment. After a routine blood draw, we separate the plasma and then inject the PRP in and around the clitoris and other sensitive regions of the vagina. No downtime is required and you can normally go about your daily activities.

  • Vaginal Lengthening

    Non-invasive and surgical options are available to repair a shortened vagina, a condition that occurs as a result of gynecological surgery, cervical cancer or radiation therapy. Depending on the extent of a surgery, it is sometimes necessary to stitch together a great deal of the remaining tissue, leaving the vagina shorter — in the same way gathering fabric to repair a hole in the toe of a sock would alter its size. There are several gyn surgeries that can contribute to this problem. It should be noted that a lengthening procedure is not always possible as it is dependent on the extent of the surgery or other cause of the diminishment.

  • Labiaplasty

    Labiaplasty is an aesthetic procedure performed by Dr. Kafali that corrects enlarged or asymmetrical labia. Large labia can cause discomfort during sexual intercourse, cause friction while exercising, or make it uncomfortable to wear swimsuits or other types of clothing. Continual, increased knowledge about the benefits of labiaplasty has made it a popular procedure in the world of women’s health. Dr. Sue Kafali has extensive experience with Labiaplasty as one of the most talented cosmetic gyne surgeons in the country. Please contact us for further details

    Vaginoplasty

    Vaginoplasty serves to tighten stretched out muscles and tissues and remove excess vaginal skin to make the vagina smaller and to tighten the vaginal opening and canal. The tightening is done
    throughout the entire length of the vagina and not just the outer opening. This can usually be conducted as an in-office procedure, and while you may need ice pack for the first 1 or 2 days, you will be able to immediately return to routine daily activities

FAQ's

  • How long does it take to recover from Labiaplasty or Vaginoplasty?
    For external work (labiaplasty; reduction clitoral hood, superficial reconstruction of the vaginal opening…), you should really take it easy, mostly around the house, for 4-5 days, and, although you may return to relatively sedentary activities at work/home, you shouldn’t “push it” for another ~ 5 days. At 10-14 days after surgery (after your first post=op visit, and you are “cleared,” you may begin modest exercise, and return to normal basic activities. You may exercise fully at ~ 3-4 weeks, and climb back on your bike or lover in ~ 4-6 weeks after your surgery. For internal work (vaginoplasty; “vaginal rejuvenation”), the recovery is similar, but add ~ 5-7 days to everything. Do not go back to internal sexual intimacy until cleared to do so by your surgeon (usually 5-6 weeks after surgery.) Also, you may need a period of gently vaginal stretching prior to comfortable intercourse. And, don’t forget: this is the time to work on vaginal muscular strengthening exercises!
  • Does my insurance cover any of this surgery?
    Generally, no- genital plastic/cosmetic surgery is considered to be "not medically necessary". However, if a portion of the surgery is considered medically necessary (for example, in situations involving urinary incontinence or certain types of prolapse/symptomatic pelvic support conditions), your surgery may cover a portion of the costs, including a good part of the facility and anesthesia fee. If this is combined with some purely plastic work (e.g. vaginal or perineal tightening/reconstruction), your surgeon may accept insurance payment for the medically indicated part, and bill additionally for that portion, not covered by your insurance, that is purely aesthetic.
  • What is normal size of a woman’s labia?
    Like breasts and noses, labia come in an amazing array of shapes, sizes, and colors. And, like these other organs, there is a wide range of normality. No two women’s labia look exactly alike and, usually, the two sides are not exactly the same in an individual woman. Many women have petite labia, while others are more well endowed. The average width of a woman’s labia is about 1 inch. Obviously, many women are smaller, or larger. Some women’s labia begin in multiple folds from a generously endowed clitoral hood; others hoods are more spare, and there is only one fold. Sometimes the labial edges are pink, sometimes tan, ofttimes considerably darker. Sometimes thick, at times thin, frequently folded on itself. Sometimes the labia end well above the base of the vaginal opening, frequently the labia trail well below the opening. It’s all normal. But, just because it’s normal (like very small breasts, or breasts that have lost their shape after bearing children) doesn’t mean that a woman is satisfied with the appearance and might, exactly like having breast size augmented or reduced, wish to change the appearance and size to one that better suits her desires.
