Common Health Concerns After Pregnancy

Feminine Rejuvenation Services Langhorne PAPregnancy takes a toll on the body, and can leave you with some uncomfortable symptoms. At Center For SmartLipo & Plastic Surgery, Dr. Durvi Patel helps her patients regain control over their bodies and address health problems resulting from childbirth with our feminine rejuvenation services. Our feminine rejuvenation services in Langhorne, PA, can combat these problems at the source and restore your quality of life following childbirth. Here are some common issues that patients experience after pregnancy in addition to treatment suggestions:

Decreased Libido

Decreased libido, vaginal dryness, and painful intercourse are just some of the uncomfortable symptoms that many patients experience after childbirth. Do not be afraid to mention these symptoms to your doctor. We are here to help you get back to feeling your best, and can offer you a personalized treatment plan in addition to compassionate, consultative care. Dr. Durvi Patel helps patients with a decreased libido restore their sex drives with the O-Shot®. The O-Shot®, also known as the Orgasm Shot®, is used to increase blood flow to the vaginal area. It is a quick and effective treatment option for improving your sex drive as well as rejuvenating the vagina.


Urinary incontinence, or loss of bladder control, occurs in many patients who have experienced a vaginal delivery. Vaginal delivery can weaken muscles needed for bladder control and damage bladder nerves and supportive tissue, making it difficult for patients to hold urine. If you’ve ever leaked urine after coughing or sneezing, or if you frequently experience an urge to urinate that’s so sudden and strong that you don’t make it to the bathroom in time, you may be suffering from urinary incontinence. Emsella™ is a treatment option often recommended to patients with urinary incontinence. Emsella™ uses electromagnetic technology to stimulate muscle contractions in the pelvic floor, very similar to Kegel exercises but with greater intensity. The repetition of these contractions will slowly improve lost muscle control.

Vulvovaginal Laxity

Vulvovaginal laxity, or vaginal looseness, is a common health concern that people face after pregnancy. If you’ve experienced a vaginal delivery, this procedure puts extreme stress on the vaginal walls, leading to stretching. While your vagina will heal itself over time, it may never look the same as it did before childbirth. More importantly, you may experience symptoms associated with vaginal looseness like vaginal dryness, and sexual dysfunction, which results from decreased sensitivity. Dr. Patel can help you retighten these muscles after pregnancy using ThermiVa™. Using induced heat to tighten loose skin and tissue in the vaginal area, ThermiVa™ can address vulvovaginal laxity and improve tissue tone.
