Cosmetic Gynecology Procedures in Cincinnati, Ohio
Cosmetic Gynecology Procedures.
Dr. Amy Brenner is a Board Certified Gynecologic Surgeon and Fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. In addition to being the first Gynecologic Surgeon in Cincinnati to specialize in Cosmetic Gynecology, she has over 20 years experience in Gynecologic Surgery and 10 years experience in Aesthetic medicine. As an expert in Sexual Medicine, Dr. Brenner and her team are able to combine the latest advances in hormone replacement therapy, Platelet Rich Plasma (the O-Shot®), the Intima® CO2 laser, and cosmetic (aesthetic) vaginal surgery to achieve life changing results.
Cosmetic vaginal surgery is an intricate, precise and meticulous cosmetic surgery and requires an expert in the field to achieve superior results. Most plastic surgeons have little to no experience with this type of cosmetic surgery. Dr. Brenner has trained at the Alinsod Institute for Aesthetic Vaginal Surgery. This specialized training with Dr. Red Alinsod, a pioneer and expert in cosmetic and reconstructive vaginal surgery, has allowed Dr. Brenner to refine her technique and bring cosmetic vaginal surgery to the office setting.
Are You a Good Candidate?
A woman may have many reasons for wanting a vaginal aesthetic procedure. Some have experienced labial stretching or tearing during childbirth. Others may suffer from labia minora hypertrophy (enlargement of the labia), a condition that can cause irritation and discomfort during physical activities, and even embarrassment during sexual intimacy.
The good news is, labiaplasty and other vaginal aesthetic options are simple procedures that can improve the appearance of a woman’s vaginal region and give the labia a more proportionate and balanced look. You deserve to feel confident about every inch of your body – find out if any of our vaginal aesthetic procedures are right for you.
This aesthetic vaginal surgery aims to tighten lax muscles and tissues and remove excess vaginal skin to narrow the diameter of the vagina resulting in a smaller and tighter opening and vaginal canal. The tightening is done in the entire length of the vagina and not merely the opening few centimeters. Read more…Return to Vaginoplasty (Vaginal Rejuvenation) ^
The visible area between the vagina and the rectum is called the perineum. This is the region where episiotomies are cut and where tears during childbirth are most common. Read more…Return to Perineoplasty (or Perineorrhaphy) ^
This surgery is for the removal of excess, floppy, or uneven labia minora (smaller interior vaginal lips) that often causes chronic irritation, rubbing, or discomfort during sexual intercourse. Read more…Return to Labiaplasty Minora (Labial Reduction) ^
The term “Labiaplasty” can also relate to the cosmetic surgery of the labia majora (larger outer lips) to make it less prominent or loose. The broader outer lips of the vulva can be enlarged with excess skin and tissue. This enlargement can cause an embarrassing bulge in pants, swimsuits, or jeans. It can also increase the discomfort of sweating in the vulva. Read more…Return to Labiaplasty Majora ^
Excess skin on the sides of the clitoris often causes the clitoris to look enlarged or uneven. Genetics, estrogen, and testosterone exposure can make significant changes in the way the clitoral area appears. Read more…Return to Clitoral Hood Reduction ^
This surgery is the reconstruction of the hymen. Cultural, religious, or social reasons predominate when this surgery is contemplated. Read more…Return to Hymenoplasty ^
Process & Results
In this appointment the Patient Coordinator and Dr. Brenner will discuss: anatomy and patient concerns, make a plan for what procedures are needed, review procedure details and post instructions. Patient Coordinator answers any additional questions and reviews cost and process for scheduling.The appointment is set with Patient Coordinator and Dr. Amy Brenner and requires a deposit of $225 that can be put toward the procedure.
Patient Coordinator will work with the patient and our surgery scheduler to find a time that works best. Once the procedure is scheduled, a pre-operative visit is required (if patient is local). If patient is out of town, pre-op can be done same day as the procedure (if patient is out of town some medications will be sent to pharmacy ahead of time).
Securing Your Procedure
In order to have your surgery and pre-operative appointments scheduled, we require a deposit of 50% of the total cost. Remaining cost is due prior to performing the procedure (required at least 7 day in advance of procedure).
Procedures vary in time from 30 minutes to 2 hours, and if multiple procedures are being done the time is added up. This is discussed with all patients when the procedures are determined.
During this visit the Patient Coordinator and Dr. Brenner will go over all of the following details in preparation for your procedure: Discuss and sign consents, answer any questions you have, thoroughly review Before/After instructions, give you prescriptions to be filled that you will need for the procedure and recovery, and then take before pictures for your clinical chart.
Dr. Brenner will review the procedure once more. The Patient Coordinator will thoroughly review post-procedure instructions. Preparation for the procedure begins with vitals and medication.
During the procedure, many patients prefer to bring headphones to listen to music, or a sleep mask is provided if you prefer to rest. Once the procedure is finished, there is about a 30 minute “recovery” period where your vitals are monitored prior to allowing you to leave with your friend or family member who has escorted you.
Follow-up appointments are scheduled based on the procedure. At these visits Dr. Brenner will assess your progress in healing. The first visit is recommended to be within 14 days of the procedure.
This is a surgical procedure and involves stitches and downtime for proper recovery. We expect all patients to follow the post-instructions to the letter and contact us with questions. Healing is different for each patient and is dependent on many factors. We encourage all patients to discuss details of expected recovery with the Patient Coordinator and plan work, travel, and activity accordingly to optimize healing.
The first two weeks, pretend you have the flu…rest and ice are the key to great healing.
At 2-4 weeks post-op, as long as healing is going well and swelling is minimal, you can begin gradually increasing activity. Exercise and lifting is still restricted.
At 4-6 weeks, if you have been cleared at your post-op visit with Dr. Brenner, you can resume normal activity.
