Sexual satisfaction is a vital part of the physical and emotional intimacy that women seek to have in their lives. Sex is an internal instinct that needs to be met, regardless of age.
A study by the Senior Journal found that sexual satisfaction is still highly possible and attainable as women age. About 23.1% of women over the age of 80 were still able to experience arousal, while 37.5% were still able to climax. This study shows that though the frequency of arousal and orgasm decreases with age, older women are still able to be satisfied with their sex lives.
How Your Vagina Changes As You Age
As women age, hormone production declines and causes the appearance and feel of the vagina and vulva to change, this can greatly affect how sexual satisfaction is achieved. Such changes include:
- Loose or stretched vaginal canal
- Decreased muscle tone
- Loss of elasticity (vaginal laxity) and moisture (vaginal dryness)
- Less plump appearance of the vulva
- Bulky, loose or less distinct labia
- Shrunk clitoris
- A pale or darker coloration of vulva tissues
Such age-related physical changes in the female genitalia may cause women to shy away from engaging in sexual intimacy. Genitalia appearance dissatisfaction, coupled with an increased time needed to become aroused and to reach orgasm, often leads to lower sexual satisfaction among older women.
Vaginal Rejuvenation: Improving one’s sexual satisfaction
Nowadays, restoring the youthful appearance and feel of a woman’s most intimate parts is now possible through vaginal rejuvenation. Vaginal rejuvenation is a combination of two plastic surgery procedures: vaginoplasty and labiaplasty, which are designed to fix and improve the cosmetic appearance of the vagina and vulva.
Vaginoplasty is a surgical procedure designed to repair and re-contour the lining and vaginal tissues. The procedure is done by removing the excess vaginal lining and tightening the muscles surrounding the canal, resulting in a tighter and more effective vagina.
Labiaplasty is a reduction procedure used to address an enlarged labia. The procedure involves removing excess skin from the labia while liposuction is used to rid the area of its bulkiness.
The results of vaginal rejuvenation are highly acknowledged because aside from repairing all physical deterioration of the area, it also restores sexual pleasure. Sex becomes more gratifying after the procedure due to increased friction generated by a newly tightened vagina.
It gets better with time
An aging vagina is one of the many problems that sexually active women deal with. While it is inevitable to have age-related physical changes in the genitals, it helps to know that there is a procedure that can correct these issues that are openly offered. Through vaginal rejuvenation, older women have the power to improve their sex lives in a truly remarkable way.
Any woman interested in undergoing vaginal rejuvenation must begin by consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in the procedure. This ensures that the surgeon’s techniques are aligned with the patient’s desired results.
In the end, age is just a number that should not stop older women from experiencing total satisfaction from sexual activity. After all, just like wine, sex gets better with time!
