Who is a good candidate?

Vaginoplasty is a surgical procedure that tightens vaginal muscles. Women who benefit from this procedure include women who have had multiple childbirths. With each child, vaginal muscles tend to become enlarged due to expansion of the muscles during delivery. For some women, this can cause vaginal muscles to become weak or loose. It can be difficult to tighten the muscles through means other than surgery. While many physicians recommend Kegel exercises, they do not always result in the change women seek.

Historical Perspective

The concept of vaginal rejuvenation can be traced back to ancient times when women sought ways to address issues related to childbirth, aging, or trauma however, it was not until the late 20th century that modern medical techniques began to emerge. Doctor Joseph Berenholz, a trailblazing cosmetic gynecologist, played a pivotal role in popularizing vaginal rejuvenation. Over 30 years he became the first cosmetic gynecologist in the Midwest USA, paving the way for advancements in this field. Dr. Berenholz is widely recognized as a national thought leader in the realm of vaginal rejuvenation.

Surgical Vaginal Rejuvenation

Surgical vaginal rejuvenation procedures are designed to tighten and reconstruct the vaginal canal. They are typically recommended for women who have experienced significant stretching of the vaginal tissues due to childbirth or age-related changes. The most common surgical techniques include vaginoplasty and labiaplasty. Vaginoplasty involves the tightening of the vaginal canal by removing excess tissue and repairing damaged muscles. This procedure can enhance sexual satisfaction by increasing friction during intercourse and restoring vaginal tone. Labiaplasty, on the other hand, focuses on the external genitalia. It involves reshaping and resizing the labia minora or majora to improve aesthetics and alleviate discomfort.


Non-invasive Vaginal Rejuvenation

Non-invasive vaginal rejuvenation procedures have gained popularity as an alternative to surgery. These procedures are suitable for women who seek vaginal enhancement without the risks and recovery time associated with surgery. Key non-invasive techniques include:

Laser Therapy: fractional laser treatments, such as CO2 or erbium laser, stimulate collagen production and improve vaginal tightness. This can lead to increased vaginal sensation and better lubrication. It can also contribute for the control of urinary incontinence.

Radiofrequency Therapy: Radio frequency devices like Thermiva or Viveve or EmFemme 360 use controlled radio frequency thermal energy to tighten vaginal tissues and stimulate collagen production these treatments are painless and require no downtime. Some clinicians feel that this modality is safer for the patient with regard to burning or accidental scarring versus laser. Dr. Berenholz has had experience with most of these modalities. He currently uses EmFemme 360 and has lectured nationally to many physicians on the value of the new technology.

Platelet-Rich Plasma{PRP}: PRP injections involve using the patients own platelet rich plasma to stimulate tissue regeneration and improve blood flow which can enhance sensitivity and sexual satisfaction.

Kegel Exercises: while not a medical procedure, kegel exercises can help strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, leading to improved vaginal tone and increased sensation. Unfortunately, many patients have difficulty performing efficient kegel maneuvers and find that there is only a limited amount of improvement when depending solely on kegel exercises.

Benefits and Considerations

Vaginal rejuvenation offers several potential benefits, including increased vaginal sensation, improve sexual function, and enhanced self-confidence. However, it’s crucial for women to consult with a qualified healthcare provider to discuss their specific concerns, goals, and candidacy for these procedures.


Vaginal rejuvenation has come a long way from its historical origins to become a recognized and respected field of medicine. Doctor Joseph Berenholz’s pioneering contributions have helped shape the evolution of this field, making it more accessible and effective for women seeking increased vaginal sensation and improved overall vaginal health. Whether through surgical or non invasive techniques vaginal rejuvenation offers a range of options for women to address their unique needs and enjoy a better quality of life.
