1How long does Vaginal Rejuvenation Surgery take?
You can choose between two options: outpatient treatment in our private practice or a short stay in a private hospital. The second option is recommended in case there are any complications.

The surgery itself takes about 60 minutes. After a short time you can already leave the medical office or hospital, becoming free of discomfort very quickly.

We use all our abilities to minimize after-effects. Nevertheless, it is normal to feel a slight pulling feeling in the vagina for a few days after surgery.

For around 6 weeks you should refrain from tampons and sexual intercourse. Stretching exercises with a dilator are recommended.
2What is Vaginal Rejuvenation without surgery?
There are effective ways of stopping the natural aging process of your vagina. Child birth and other burdens can not only effect the look of a vagina but as well sensitivity and pleasure during sex.

In addition to the surgical option for the rejuvenation and beautification of the vagina by tightening and smoothing of the tissue, we also offer proven non-surgical procedures in our practice, including ThermiVa® and laser treatments.

In a personal consultation, you are welcome to discuss all the options that we offer.
Please do not hesitate to make an appointment by phone anytime to discuss these options with us.
3What is Mons Venus - Perfect femininity?
The pubic mound is also called ‘mons Venus' , the hill of the Venus.

Why the mound of Venus Enlarges This body part consists mainly of subcutaneous fat tissue and lies like a cushion over the pubis. Due to hormonal changes, these fat deposits can enlarge over time. The pubic mound becomes particularly prominent, annoyingly large and visible through tight clothing or in a bikini.

A Monsplasty can help with this issue.
The procedure is performed under local anaesthesia, and thus largely painless.

The actual procedure takes around 60 minutes, the excess fat is taken away and the overlying skin tightened.

You can leave our practice about half an hour after the operation, but take a break of at least an hour before you get behind the wheel of your car.

Some swelling is normal, this will subside after about a week. Soon afterwards, you will be able to wear more form-fitting clothes without discomfort.
4What relief can I find after genital mutilation? (FGM)
Many women are victims and suffer from the after effects of being circumcised.

Modern medicine has many concepts of recovery and rehabilitation. In an operative procedure, the existing scar strands in the vaginal entrance are loosened and, if possible, the clitoris is rebuilt.

The operation is performed either under local or general anaesthesia. All treatments and therapies are conducted in our private practice or private hospital in a discreet atmosphere.

The overall outcome we always work towards is that sexual intercourse is no longer painful and unsatisfactory. But more important is the benefit to your sense of self that can bring about a strong improvement in your quality of life - so that you can feel whole & like a woman again.

1It is my first ever appointment, what can I expect?
Your first Gynaecologist visit may be just a talk between you and your doctor.
You can find out what to expect at future visits and get information about how to stay healthy.
You also may have certain exams.

Dr Wagner may seem to ask a lot of questions about you and your family.

Some of them may seem personal, such as questions about your menstrual period or sexual activities.

If you are concerned about confidentiality, you and your doctor should talk about it before you answer any questions. Much of the information you share can be kept confidential.
2Can I get pregnant on my period?
If you have a short interval between each period, meaning you ovulate early in the cycle, you can get pregnant.
As an example, sperm lives for 5 days so if you have sex on day 6 of your period and ovulate on day 9, you could still get pregnant.
3Is douching a recommended way to clean my vagina?
A short answer is No.
Douching is a pre-made cleaning mixture that comes in a plastic bottle that can be squirted high up into the vagina.

This internal vaginal cleaning is not a recommended routine. The active cleaning ingredients used in most douches can upset the healthy vaginal discharge and pH balance and cause a yeast or bacterial infection.
4What are the pelvic exam and Pap test?
The pelvic exam has three parts:
Looking at the vulva
Looking at the vagina and cervix with a speculum
Checking the internal organs with a gloved hand

The doctor will use a speculum to look at your vagina and cervix.

When you have a Pap test, a sample of cells is taken from your cervix with a small brush.
To check your internal organs, the doctor will place one or two gloved, lubricated fingers into the vagina and up to the cervix. The other hand will press on the abdomen from the outside.


1When pregnant are there any foods I should avoid?
It is recommended that pregnant women do not eat lunch meats or hot dogs unless reheated till steaming hot.
They also should not eat soft cheeses (goat, feta, blue, gorgonzola, brie, queso fresco) unless the package label indicates that the cheese is pasteurized.

Pregnant women can (and should!) eat fish in moderation (no more than 12 ounces per week).
Avoid tilefish, shark, and mackerel as these have higher mercury content.
Albacore tuna has a higher mercury content than canned light tuna.

Therefore, it is recommended that pregnant women only eat 6 ounces of albacore tuna per week. Pregnant women should avoid raw or undercooked foods (sorry, no raw sushi!).
2I'm pregnant & have a cat, should I be worried?
Toxoplasmosis is a parasite that can be found in cat feces.
If a woman is exposed to this in pregnancy, her baby could be affected by hearing loss, mental retardation, and blindness.
Therefore, we recommend that you have someone else change your kitty litter during pregnancy.
If this is not possible, you should wear gloves when handling kitty litter and wash your hands thoroughly immediately following contact.

You may still pet and love your cat!!
3Can I have a glass of wine during pregnancy?
Alcohol consumption during pregnancy has been linked to birth defects and mental development issues.

No one knows exactly how much alcohol it takes to cause these problems.
Therefore, it is currently recommended that pregnant women avoid any alcohol intake during pregnancy.
4I have been exposed to Shingles, what should I do?
If you had chicken pox in childhood, you are immune for life and shingles exposure will not affect you or your baby.

If you are not sure if you are immune to varicella (chicken pox), we can test for this and make further recommendations based on your results.
