It will depend on patient's history, exam and symptoms as well as age. DiVA laser treatment is excellent for vaginal resurfacing and helps with stress urinary incontinence as well. If your situation is more complex, seeing a urogynecologist may be helpful as well. Best wishes!

Dear Moosemouse,

Hello and thank you for your excellent question. It is best to answer your question during a face-to-face evaluation, when you can discuss your goals and expectations for the procedure, and you can have a physical examination to evaluate for that procedure. I recommend that you find a board-certified, or board-eligible plastic surgeon with whom you are comfortable. Be sure to have all of your questions answered during a face-to-face meeting with your surgeon, and review before and after pictures of similar patients whom have had this procedure. If you have any questions, call our office for assistance. Good luck!

Thank you for sharing your excellent question. For most patients a surgical correction will afford longer-lasting results than nonsurgical. Hope this helps.
