OFFICE VAGINOPLASTY & VIVEVE®
is the surgical tightening of the skin and muscles of the vaginal canal from the outside to the inside when they have become loose – a condition called vaginal laxity. It is the gold standard procedure for vaginal tightening. It provides the strongest and most durable results of all available treatments.
Surgical Vaginal Rejuvenation
is a term sometimes used interchangeably with vaginoplasty. Laser vaginal rejuvenation is a specific type of vaginoplasty and we offer this type too. Regardless of the technique, the results of a vaginoplasty are dependent upon a well-supported and intact pelvic floor.
Pelvic Floor Reconstruction
is surgery to repair a pelvic floor that is damaged from childbirth, the repair of this damage is integral to a successful vaginoplasty result. We include any necessary pelvic floor reconstruction whenever we perform a vaginoplasty. If this is not done, the vaginoplasty will not work properly.
Dr. Tajkarimi is an expert pelvic floor surgeon and specialist. He has received extensive training for office vaginoplasty from Dr. Marco Pelosi III, considered the world leader in cosmetic gynecology. Dr. Tajkarimi is a robotic pelvic floor surgeon as well. He brings together years of experience in urology, robotics, pelvic floor reconstruction to conduct the proper vaginoplasty procedure to ensure you the best possible results.
THE VAGINAL MUSCLES: THE OUTER MUSCLES
The outer layer, just beneath the skin, is called the perineum. This layer primarily provides support to the vagina.
The muscles of the perineum form a partial ring around the vaginal opening. The majority of this ring consists of the left and right bulbocavernosus muscles.
The center of this ring is a fusion point where the bulbocavernosus muscles connect with the transverse perineal muscles. This fusion point is called the perineal body.
THE VAGINAL MUSCLES: THE INNER MUSCLES
The inner layer of vaginal muscles responsible for vaginal tightening are called the levator ani muscles or simply the levator muscles.
The levator muscles form the floor of the pelvis and support the bladder, the vagina and the rectum during normal activity.
These muscles consist of one large sheet of muscle tissue that spans across the entire bony pelvis with an opening in the center called the levator hiatus or the genital hiatus.
This sheet of muscle is shaped like a bowl with the levator hiatus at its center.
The periphery of this bowl is attached to its surroundings by a tough layer of leather-like tissue called fascia.
The center is attached to the tailbone and the perineal body.
THE PUBORECTALIS MUSCLE
The central portion of the levator ani muscle group is called the puborectalis muscle (blue). This muscle loops around from front to back and forms a sling that tightens around the vagina, the bladder and the rectum.
When the puborectalis muscle contracts, the gap between the two sides constricts and the vagina tightens.
Vaginal childbirth can damage the puborectalis muscle by either damaging its nerve supply or by loosening its attachments. Once damaged, the muscle is unable to contract properly and the ability to tighten the vagina is lost or impaired.
The puborectalis muscle is the target of vaginal rejuvenation tightening procedures.
Pelvic and vaginal structural components are frequently broken, not merely loosened from childbirth. This can cause conditions known as cystocele, rectocele and enterocele. Pelvic floor reconstruction techniques restore essential support. Your clinical exam will determine whether your vaginplasty requires these techniques.

Urinary leakage is not a normal part of aging!
Urinary incontinence is a common problem for women of all ages and body types that can occur following vaginal births or after menopause when estrogen production levels drop off. Tissue regeneration of the muscular structure stops, and the collagen production cycle slows down. The bladder and the urinary tract become deficient, and that leads to urinary incontinence. The support structures that prevent leakage are lost.
The Viveve Treatment works via a small probe which emits cryogen-cooling to protect the tissue and radiofrequency waves to heat the tissue. This prompts the production of new collagen to reinvigorate the tissues.
Other benefits of the Viveve® treatment is more sensation, tighter vaginal wall, more lubrication and pleasure. Make an appointment with Dr. Taj to learn more and get your Viveve treatment now!
