Finding a Quality Vaginoplasty Surgeon in Miami

For many women, the topic of vaginal rejuvenation remains one that is difficult to discuss with any one beyond very close friends or a trusted surgeon. Because of the delicate nature of the subject, many women have unanswered questions about vaginoplasty surgery. Women get vaginal surgery for a variety of reasons ranging from the desire for a more youthful appearance, to the desire to decrease pain and discomfort. Vaginoplasty is a general term designating a group of surgical procedures designed to improve appearance and sensitivity of vaginal elements.

Because the effects of pregnancy, birth, aging, trauma or genetics, vaginal tissue and the adjacent muscle system might get loose, causing vaginal muscle laxity. This affects the quality of sexual intercourse for both partners. In addition to this, the increase or decrease of the labias can affect both the appearance and quality of the genital organs. They can cause discomfort during intimate contact, as well as chronic itching and pain.

Vaginal Restorative Surgery Benefits

Vaginal restorative surgery is usually thought of as a cosmetic procedure, when in fact there may be numerous functional benefits. There are in fact numerous types of vaginal surgery available to modern women, vaginal restoration being just one type. For the most part, vaginal restorative surgeries such as vaginoplasty and perineoplasty focus on restoring tightening in the vaginal muscles in order to increase sexual pleasure. Clitoral hood reduction and labiaplasty restructure the vagina, increasing stimulation and reducing tissues that can cause pain and irritation. Surgeons can even perform hymenoplasty to restore a hymen that’s been ruptured due to injuries.

Vaginoplasty Miami is a burgeoning field turning out hundreds of new “expert surgeons” every. But just because a particular plastic surgeon claims to have expertise in the area of vaginal surgery, that doesn’t mean they have the extent of experience you probably want. Presently there isn’t a formal post graduate certification process for plastic surgeons to become certified in the specialized area of vaginal restorative surgery. This means that a surgeon can take one of several paths towards becoming a labiaplasty “expert.” Some surgeons do nothing more extensive than taking a short lecture course.

Ideally, you will find a plastic surgeon whose training has been extensive and in-depth. When you meet with a plastic surgeon, ask them to explain their training in labiaplasty to you. Keep looking until you find a plastic surgeon that has been through in-depth post graduate training in vaginal restorative surgery.

Find a Vaginoplasty Specialist

Experience is also a major consideration when it comes to deciding on vaginal rejuvenation Miami. While vaginal surgery is a relatively new field, there are plenty of plastic surgeons who have decided to make vaginal surgery their specialty. Choose a surgeon who specializes in vaginal rejuvenation surgery and who performs them regularly with optimal success rather than a surgeon who has only performed a handful or only performs a handful per year.

Every vaginal rejuvenation carries the potential of risk, for instance excessive blood loss, infection, or other complications that may be unforeseen or that can occur. Though very rare with modern day vaginal surgery techniques, they can occur, and when they happen it can mean you require additional surgery that will place an added financial risk or burden on you. Find out before the procedure.

The fastest way to know about a vaginal rejuvenation Miami surgeon is by reputation, and the thing that builds (or ruins) a plastic surgeon’s reputation faster than anything is the testimonials or recommendations from existing patients. Your vaginal surgeon should either have a good sampling of testimonials on their website, or be able to show them to you if you ask. If the plastic surgeon you are contemplating using hasn’t received cards and letters of thanks, odds are you won’t be sending them one either. If at all possible, find out if prior patients are happy with their surgery results, as well as the personality of the attending surgeon themselves.

How Vaginal Rejuvenation is Performed

The surgery is performed under general anesthesia without the patient feeling any pain. Its duration varies between 30 and 90 minutes, depending on each case. It is important to know that surgery can also correct other problems such as urinary incontinence or genital prolapse. Postoperative surveillance is needed in the clinic for about 1 to 3 days. Any physical and sexual activity should be avoided the first month after surgery. Moreover, as a general rule, high physical effort is only permitted after 3 months, while the final results can take even longer to appear.

 

Teenagers With Autism Four Times More Likely Than Others To Need E.R. Treatment

Teens with a diagnosis of autism are four times as likely to present at an Emergency Room, than their neurotypical counterparts.

Penn State College of Medicine conducted a study, between 2005 and 2013 into the insurance claims for healthcare, of individuals aged between 12 and 21 years of age.

What they found was that only 3% of adolescents and young adults who were either not considered autistic or at least, had not been diagnosed as being within the autistic spectrum, visited an Emergency Room in that period.

However, when looking at the percentages for teenagers and young people with autism, that number had jumped from the same rate as their neurotypical peers of 3% in 2005, to 16% in 2013.

It was found that there had not been an increase in the rates of diagnoses in the study period. To make sure that the individuals documented in the study had not been wrongly diagnosed, all the participants in the study had received at least two diagnoses of autism.

Additionally, the reasons for a visit to the Emergency Room increasingly incorporated ones of behavioral issues or a mental health crisis.

With the onset of adolescence, self harming behaviors and other mental health issues can present themselves in all teens. However, it is specifically the young people with an autistic spectrum diagnosis who were presenting the most at the Emergency Room with these issues.

In fact, at the end of the time of the study period, in 2013 22% of these visits to the Emergency Room were for some aspect of mental health and other behavioral concerns.

At the beginning of the study, these had only accounted for 12% of all admissions.

Other common reasons for admissions were gastro intestinal problems, including nausea, pain etc and then also conditions such as epilepsy.

Then there were other issues such as ear infections, which presented as a frequent reason for a visit to the Emergency Room.

Other findings of the study revealed that it was the teens on the older end of the study group, who accounted for the higher number of visits to the Emergency Room.

The 18-21 age group of autistic young persons accounted for the highest percentage of visits – at 30%, whilst the more junior end 12-14 made up only 10%.

The study also found that girls and young women with autism were disproportionately likely visit the Emergency Room, than were males.

Teens living in a rural area were also more likely to require the Emergency Room than those living in more urban places.

The study’s authors have concluded that this spike in admissions and visits to the Emergency Room have a strong correlation with the absence of services, for this age group as they enter adolescence.

Although the condition itself may lead to increased problems with some mental health issues in later adolescence, this alone does not explain the study’s findings.

In many cases, the reasons for the admission to emergency care should have been able to be dealt with by a family doctor.

These figures seem to suggest that there is an issue with adolescents with autism being able to seek appropriate care, from their primary care team.
