Female genital rejuvenation is a key topic and the procedures are growing in popularity, thanks to more media awareness of this type of surgery. Surgery can change both the physical appearance and functional aspects of the genital area.
The number of vaginal rejuvenation procedures increased by 64% in the US from 2011 to 2012. The procedures are sometimes added on as part of a "mommy makeover." Both plastic surgeons and gynecologists operate on patients.
This comprehensive and highly visual text covers the important issues of patient selection and patient consultation as well as all the different operative techniques, and includes accompanying surgical videos. Special focus is on dealing with complications and how to deal with secondary cases, which plastic surgeons often have referred.
There are strong turf wars in this area between the plastic surgery and urogynecology/gynecology markets; this book attempts to bridge the gap between the two specialties and offer a harmonized approach.
