What is Vaginal Rejuvenation?
The term “vaginal rejuvenation” refers to a family of procedures marketed to women who suffer from looseness of the vagina, urinary incontinence, dryness, or pain during sexual intercourse. Surgeons use radio frequency waves, lasers, cryotherapy, and other medical devices to tighten the tissues of the vagina. Vaginal rejuvenation is also commonly referred to as cosmetic gynecology, female genital plastic surgery, vulvovaginal plastic surgery, female genital rejuvenation surgery, designer vagina surgery, and female genital cosmetic surgery.
How Much Does it Cost?
Vaginal rejuvenation procedures such as vaginoplasty and labiaplasty can cost anywhere from about $3,000 to $10,000, and are not covered by insurance. However, certain processes designed to correct or reverse serious medical issues may be covered.
FDA Warning on Vaginal Rejuvenation
FDA indicated in its warning on vaginal rejuvenation that the procedures are unapproved, under tested, and therefore dangerous to anyone who elects to undergo them. The agency has received reports from women who have undergone vaginal rejuvenation complaining of vaginal burns, scarring, and lasting pain following treatment. FDA claims that it is aware of at least 14 reports of adverse events related to the treatments, including burning sensations and significant pain.
What are Votiva Treatments?
The Votiva treatments involve two separate procedures, one for the internal part of the vagina, the other for the external:
- FormaV (internal) – Delivers thermal tissue remodeling of the genitals and provides uniform RF heating of the internal vaginal tissue and external vulvar laxity and/or labial hypertrophy.
- FractoraV (external) – Delivers deep fractional tissue coagulation through the use of technology that combines fractional coagulation and heating. This is designed for remodeling external areas such as the labia majora.
Vaginal Rejuvenation Side Effects
- Vaginal burns
- Persistent pain
- Burning sensation
- Other adverse events
Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Votiva Lawsuits Instead of a Class Action
Although we are a nationally recognized class action firm, the medical device litigation group at our law firm has decided against the filing of a Votiva class action suit and is currently filing individual claims on behalf of individuals and/or their family members that have suffered vaginal burns, scarring, and other serious health complications from defective vaginal lasers. This decision was the result of our witnessing many other cases that are similar in nature to Votiva claims wind up poorly for the plaintiffs, who are often forced to pay higher attorney fees and accept low payouts for an expedited judgement. At Schmidt & Clark, LLP we understand that our clients are suffering emotionally and economically due to loss of wages and/or high medical bills and we plan to maximize each client’s recovery by filing individual Votiva InMode vaginal rejuvenation lawsuits on their behalf.
Do I Have a Votiva Lawsuit?
The Class Action Litigation Group at our law firm is an experienced team of trial lawyers that focus on the representation of plaintiffs in Votiva lawsuits. We are handling individual litigation nationwide and currently accepting new vaginal rejuvenation burn and scarring cases in all 50 states.
