In Dr. Scheinberg’s 30 years as a gynecologist, he’s heard just about every problem and issue a woman can experience. And fortunately, he is able to correct them with the various techniques and procedures perfected over the last decade or so.
Here are is a list of the 5 most common problems facing women today. Don’t worry if your personal issue isn’t on this list, that doesn’t mean that Dr. Scheinberg can’t address it and correct it. It just means that everyone is different and unique, and so are the problems they encounter.
If you have something you want to cover that’s not on this list, don’t hesitate to call Dr. Scheinberg at The Center for Cosmetic & Reconstructive Gynecology office at 888-573-7496 and he’ll be happy to discuss it with you personally.
Common Problem #1: Vaginal Looseness
Dr. Scheinberg tells his patients, “Diamonds are forever… but everything else? That’s another story!” Things like time and child birth can take a toll on your body. And this can cause your vaginal muscles to not be as tight as they once used to be, creating the sensation of “looseness.”
Most women complain of this problem after giving birth, where, from even one vaginal birth, significant damage can be done to the vagina. Patients with this problem often express that “sex doesn’t feel the same anymore.” This is because the vagina is no longer at its optimum physiological state, and as a result, the sensual side of sexual gratification can often be diminished.
There are also cases where this problem is not a result of childbirth, and in those cases solutions are customizable for your particular needs. Dr. Scheinberg always recommends each individual patient be evaluated and examined in order to get the correct diagnosis. Typically Vaginal Rejuvenation and Reconstruction would be the most advisable treatment option for this problem. Also see Vaginal Rugae Rejuvenation.
Common Problem #2: Lack of Sensation During Sex
In addition to mental and emotional factors, sexual gratification requires physical stimulation. Most patients who complain of lack of sensation often have stretched or relaxed vaginal pelvic structures. This is also very common in women who have given birth vaginally, though there can be many cases where vaginal birth was not a factor.
Things such as genetics and aging can also be a major cause for lack of sensation. Again, before deciding what steps to take, Dr. Scheinberg would evaluate and examine each individual patient. The most common treatment option for this is Vaginal Rejuvenation and Reconstruction, or Vaginal Rugae Rejuvenation.
Common Problem #3: Stress Urinary Incontinence (Leaky Urine)
This is the most common type of urinary incontinence in women. Stress Urinary Incontinence is an involuntary loss of urine that may occur during physical activity, such as coughing, sneezing, laughing, or exercise.
Two muscles are involved in the control of urine flow: The Sphincter and the Detrusor. In stress incontinence, the sphincter muscle and the pelvic muscles, which support the bladder and urethra, are weakened. The sphincter is then not able to prevent urine flow when there is increased pressure from the abdomen (such as when you cough, laugh, or lift something heavy).
Genetics and aging play a major role in the onset of stress incontinence. It can also often be seen in women who have had multiple pregnancies and vaginal childbirths, and whose bladder, urethra, or rectal wall stick out into the vagina (this is called “pelvic prolapse”).
If you’re suffering from SUI, know this can be corrected by Vaginal Rejuvenation and Reconstruction. But again, only your doctor can tell you what will work best for you after a complete exam.
Common Problem #4: Pain or Discomfort
During intercourse, pain or discomfort can occur in a woman’s labial, vaginal or pelvic areas. Recent studies suggest that more than 60% of women report current or previous episodes of pain during sexual relations. Because the symptoms and causes of pain and/or discomfort can vary widely, it is crucial to have a qualified doctor perform a detailed exam, and then suggest different treatment options.
Common Problem#5: Embarrassment from Appearance of Vagina
Every women’s vagina looks different, but very often women are embarrassed and self-conscious about the way their vagina looks. The things that bother them most include:
Contour – the shape isn’t smooth and pleasing
Color – the colors aren’t consistent and matching on both sides. Some women have darkened sides and want to correct that
Symmetry – both sides are note even and don’t look alike
Size – most women want their inner labia smaller and an outer labia that is “puffy.” (And with the procedures I perform, you can even choose how puffy.)
Smooth Edges – the “natural” look has smooth edges with hidden suture lines.
We can correct all of these problems with Designer Laser Labiaplasty and Vulvoplasty.
