Age requirements

How old is the requirement for this surgery?

Hi, thanks for your question. In general, one must be 18 years to consent to a medical or surgical procedure. There are many different types of vaginal rejuvenation procedures, and it is unlikely someone of this age would need true “rejuvenation.” However, other vaginal procedures, such as to treat discomfort or other issues, may be appropriate.

In general, the patient has to be at least 18-years-old to be able to consent for this procedure.

Thank you for your question. As the other surgeons have already stated a patient must be 18 years of age to consent to a procedure without a parent or Guardian.

Dear KMariaW,

Hello and thank you for your excellent question. You need to be at least 18 years of age to consent for this procedure. 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!

There are surgical and non surgical treatments depending upon your need. All patients must be 18 years old to provide their own consent.
