Countless women visit board-certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Armando Soto every year to address their internal and external labia tissue if the vaginal lips have become loose or excessively relaxed. At Aesthetic Enhancements Plastic Surgery, Dr. Soto uses the ThermiVa system to perform a nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation procedure that strengthens the vaginal muscles and tissue. During this treatment, controlled radio frequency energy is applied to the vaginal region through a hand-held device called. The gentle heat promotes collagen production, strengthens muscles, and improves the overall integrity of the skin. The results lead to tighter labia muscles, which helps to improve symptoms like low libido, vaginal dryness, incontinence, and sexual dysfunction.
"My patient experience has been excellent! During my pre-op Dr Soto and his staff were extremely informative and patient when answering my questions and alleviating my concerns. Surgery was smooth and stress free as it could possibly be. Post-op care instructions were very thoughtful and comprehensive. It allowed me to have a very smooth recovery, especially in that critical first week. Results have been fantastic. I would not hesitate to make this decision again with Dr. Soto and would recommend his office to anyone considering this life changing procedure!"- A.O. / Yellowpages / May 13, 2017
"I had a breast lift and augmentation done with Dr. Soto in March 2017, and it was the best choice I ever made. I saw 4 plastic surgeons in the Orlando area before finally choosing Dr. Soto. I went into the process of originally wanting a breast lift with saline implants, but after much research I decided to go with silicone because of the way they look, feel, and the overall quality of the silicone implants. Of the other 4 plastic surgeons, 2 would not perform the lift on me because they felt it wasn't necessary, and the other doctor gave me a quote that was way more than I could afford. When I came to Dr. Soto's office it was a breath of fresh air. His staff is very sweet and attentive. I was seen right away after checking in. Dr. Soto listened to exactly what I wanted and after gave me his suggestions and what I was to expect with the surgery and my outcome. He was very realistic and upfront with me, which I really appreciated. After my consultation, I decided to go ahead with the surgery. I had a breast lift and breast augmentation done with silicone implants (275 cc for my left breast and 300 cc for my right since my left breast was larger). I wanted perkier breasts that fit my."- Anonymous / Vitals / May 08, 2017
"I just had a Mommy Makeover with a Breast Reduction and Lift. I was shocked at what I saw when I looked at myself in the mirror. My breasts looked better than when I was in high school and college. I have always had extremely large breasts and was unable to wear a bikini (never!) and suffered severe back and neck pain. I am only three weeks post op and I look amazing and feel amazing! Dr. Soto and his team are great! They are genuinely concerned about my recovery and monitor me often to ensure I am healing properly. I am so thankful to Dr. Soto and his staff for helping me look and feel better!"- Anonymous / Vitals / May 07, 2017
"Working with Dr. Soto and his staff has been such a wonderful experience. The care and attention they offer is amazing. All concerns and questions are regarded with care, understanding, and respect. Dr. Soto is thorough, detailed, and honest with his opinions and suggestions. This office really treats its patients like their own family rather than a number, and that is hard to come by. Whether you are here for a first time visit or here for a post op visit, you will always get world-class service with great results!"- Anonymous / Vitals / May 04, 2017

I will continue to come back to Dr. Soto in the future. Thank you Dr. Soto for all of your kindness and my beautiful results!"- T. / Healthgrades / May 04, 2017
The treatment wand has a built-in thermometer, which relays the skin temperature to the computer for automatic adjustments to the right level of heat without risking burns. The ThermiVa wand will be passed over the exterior of the vagina and if the internal tissue needs to be treated, the wand will be shallowly inserted into the vagina. After the procedure, patients can resume their normal activities, but should avoid sexual activity for at least 24 hours.
What to Expect@headingTag>
Patients may see some improvement after their treatment, but most patients will need about 3 treatments over a 3-month period to get their best results. After the final treatment, the final results should be noticeable in about 2 weeks. Results typically last for 1 year and then touch-up treatments should be scheduled by the patient to maintain their results.

Thermi RF System?@headingTag>
The ThermiRF Skin Tightening system is a base system for radiofrequency treatments that uses applications for specific areas, like the ThermiVa for vaginal rejuvenation. The ThermiTight, ThermiSmooth Body, and ThermiSmooth Face are other applications for noninvasive and minimally invasive skin tightening treatments of the face and body.
ThermiVa or Labiaplasty?@headingTag>
The ThermiVa application is best for women who have mild to moderate skin laxity in the vaginal area and who want to avoid the discomfort and downtime of a surgical vaginal lift. A labiaplasty is a surgical removal of the excess skin in the vaginal area for women with more severe skin looseness. ThermiVa is also better for women who are unsure about having more children since it is less expensive, less time consuming, and requires no recovery period.
When to Get ThermiVa?@headingTag>
In order to get longer lasting results, patients are encouraged to wait until they are no longer planning any more children. The ThermiVa treatment will not affect future pregnancies or prevent a vaginal childbirth, but patients will need to wait 2 – 3 months after giving birth to start ThermiVa treatments.
