Choosing the Right Practitioner for Your Vaginal Rejuvenation Treatment
Planning for a vaginal rejuvenation treatment is a major step towards improving health and well-being.
For such a personal and important decision, you’ll need the guidance of a qualified and experienced practitioner, but you’ll also want to feel comfortable and trust the doctor who is treating you. Compromise in these areas may lead to a negative experience and/or undesirable results from your procedure. When seeking the right practitioner to work with, many patients question whether to choose a gynecologist or a plastic surgeon. A surgical vaginal rejuvenation procedure can certainly improve cosmetic appearance like other plastic surgery, yet these are the body parts that gynecologists are most familiar with. So which medical specialist is best?
The answer isn’t simple, because gynaecologists and plastic surgeons may have different training and specialties. Not all gynecologists perform vaginal rejuvenation procedures regularly. Instead, some focus on cancer care, screening, hormonal problems, urinary tract, and pelvic disorders. As with any specialty, the surgeon who focuses on your treatment area and has the most experience with it is the one whose skill and expertise you can trust. A general plastic surgeon will present similarly. Some plastic surgeons will perform a wide array of procedures, but many choose to focus on the areas where they are the most skilled and experienced. There is great diversity and depth of training in various areas of cosmetic surgery.
A plastic surgeon who has trained extensively in facial, head, and neck surgery and works in this area regularly would be an ideal choice for a face lift. A cosmetic gynecological surgeon who has intensive knowledge and training as well as procedural experience in their specific area is an ideal choice for vaginal rejuvenation procedures.
A cosmetic gynecologic surgeon is a doctor who specializes in the field of aesthetic vaginal surgery. These surgeons will have performed numerous vaginal rejuvenation procedures and perfected their expertise, familiarity, and artistry working on complex, delicate vaginal structures and the surrounding tissue. An experienced practitioner in the field of cosmetic gynecology will have the latest surgical and non-surgical techniques to provide the optimal aesthetic and functional results. They also know women’s physiology better than anyone.
When visiting different specialists, here are some tips to help determine the best qualified cosmetic gynaecologic surgeon:
- Always ask for a verification of their credentials. Ensuring that they meet the professional standards of practice required by medical boards is a great way to know that they are properly trained.
- Consider the number of vaginal rejuvenation procedures completed. Hundreds and thousands of vaginal rejuvenations will indicate experience and expertise with the procedures. After all, practice makes perfect.
- Review their work. Examining any before and after photos provided can give a sense of the “look” that they achieve most often.
- Request patient testimonials. Hearing feedback from previous patients can speak to the doctor-patient relationship and the follow-up care provided. It can also help ease your mind about the procedure.
