What is Cosmetic Gynecology?
by Annette Pinder
Cosmetic gynecology is a relatively new field in cosmetic and plastic surgery. It is a also a very personal subject, and one that few women discuss with one another or even with their physicians. But nature, gravity, childbirth, genetics, age, and chronic pelvic health issues can cause undesirable or painful changes to the female vaginal anatomy. And they are changes that most women find uncomfortable, yet endure in silence as a result of changes to their pelvic supportive structure.
Drs. Armen Kirakosyan and George Danakas, of Aesthetic Gynecology Specialists of WNY in East Aurora explain that, “The needs of women vary at different times in their lives, and we want to help them.”
Scientific studies reveal that pelvic anatomical changes directly impact sexual function. In addition to changes that occur as a result of natural childbirth, conditions such as pelvic organ prolapse, tissue stretching, and nerve impairment can affect a woman’s physical health, comfort, satisfaction, confidence, and quality of life. Too many women believe they must live with an uncomfortable or embarrassing condition, unaware that anatomical and functional changes that naturally occur can be resolved.
Sometimes these conditions require surgical intervention, and sometimes they do not. However, the doctors always begin with a discussion regarding the least invasive options possible. One intervention they are particularly excited about is ThermiVa™, a non-invasive and non-surgical treatment. ThermiVa encourages collagen production and may help in tissue and nerve healing. An alternative to vaginal rejuvenation surgery, ThermiVa treats vaginal laxity and dryness, stress urinary incontinence and sexual dysfunctions. Developed by Thermi, a women’s wellness company whose mission it is to help women reclaim, restore and revive their lives, ThermiVa uses a temperature-controlled radio frequency system, that provides an effective and comfortable makeover without the need for anesthesia or any downtime.
This July through October, the doctors at Aesthetic Gynecology Specialists are offering special ThermiVa intimate makeover consultations at 50 percent off the regular pricing. Call 716-652-2665 or 716-652-COOL for an appointment.
