The answer is neither. Plastic surgeons tend to focus the majority of their practice and time on the most common elective procedures, including breast augmentation and face lifts. Vaginal rejuvenation, if performed at all, is a secondary procedure they rarely have the opportunity to perform with limited expertise. General OB/GYN’s, while examining hundreds of women monthly for pap smears or yeast infections, have minimal if any training or experience performing a state of the art vaginal rejuvenation for premium aesthetic and functional results. Cosmetic gynecologic surgery is ideally performed by a surgeon who specializes in the field of aesthetic vaginal surgery. Ideally, patients will seek out a specialist who has performed hundreds or thousands of vaginal rejuvenation procedures and is intimately familiar with the varied anatomy, patient preferences and latest surgical management to provide optimal results both aesthetically and functionally.
To choose a qualified cosmetic vaginal surgeon:
- Verify credentials
- Review before and after photos
- Consider the number of vaginal rejuvenation procedures performed
- Request patient testimonials
