“I started my vaginal renewal surgical experience early in my career. There were a number of women from Jordan, Kenya and Sudan that lived in the community where my practice was located. They had experienced female genital mutilation as young girls. Female genital mutilation (FGM), also known as female genital cutting and female circumcision, is the ritual removal of some or all of the external genitalia. These patients were frequently requesting repair of their external genitalia. It was my privilege to be able to restore their anatomy. This gave me a unique opportunity to experience what it means to a woman to gain confidence and comfort in the appearance of her genitalia.” — Dr. Michelle Jones Singer
With age and child birth, a woman’s vaginal region can become lax and lose some of the appearance and elasticity present previously. Some women are simply unhappy with the appearance of their outer labia. Vaginal Renewal Surgery, or “Vaginal Reconstructive Surgery”, can improve the appearance of the outer areas as well as tighten up the inner regions. Overall, this can improve your sex life, decrease pain, and improve cosmetic appearance.
Vaginoplasty is not an aesthetic procedure – it is a functional procedure involving the tightening of the inner and outer muscles and structures of the vagina enhancing vaginal muscle tone, strength, and control.While the details of this procedure will be discussed with Dr. Jones Singer during your consultation, it is important to understand the primary goal of vaginal tightening is to enhance sexual gratification for the patient. This is achieved by reducing the external diameter of the vagina and tightening the internal muscles to a patient’s specifications, thereby increasing friction experienced during intercourse.
The surgery can be done as an out-patient procedure, with minimal scarring, minimal pain, and a fast recovery. At COSMETIC SURGERY OF INDIANAPOLIS you can rest assured that your doctor will have the time to get to know you as an individual, and address your medical concerns completely.

Labiaplasty, or labialplasty, is a one to two hour surgical procedure designed to sculpt the external vaginal structures by reducing and/or reshaping long or uneven labia. Childbirth, the aging process, and the effects of gravity may all erode the beauty of the female genitalia including the labia minora, labia majora, and perineum. Long labia minora may interfere with exercise or intercourse, and may cause embarrassment for some when wearing certain clothes, such as bathing suits, leggings, or jeans which may call attention to any bulge. Over time the labia majora may relax and sag, while the perineum may show signs of scarring from an episiotomy or laceration incurred during childbirth.
Reasons for Labiaplasty
