Menopause is an uncomfortable time in the life of every woman, and one of the symptoms is vaginal atrophy. Vaginal atrophy is a vaginal mucosal disease caused by the hormonal imbalance installed following the reduction in estrogen. This is manifested by the thinning of vaginal tissues, the dryness of the vaginal mucosa, the loss of elasticity, the increase of fragility, and the decrease in the ability to defend against infectious agents.

Menopausal women are most numerous among women with vaginal dryness, according to a study by the Louis Harris Institute in France on a representative sample of women in Central and Western Europe.

80% believe that vaginal dryness is responsible for the pains that occur during sexual intercourse and hence problems in couple (53%), stress (39%), depression (26%). 57% of women estimate that vaginal dryness is the cause of serious problems in the couple, especially as such situations are encountered recently and under the age of 40 years.

Academy Lesser Clinic offers great option to women with an innovative treatment called Mona Lisa Touch. This is a non-invasive therapy that helps to cure vaginal atrophy, vaginal itching, dryness as well as urinary tract infections.

How does this treatment actually help? It reverses the aging process on the vaginal walls, using the CO2 laser technique to strengthen the internal tissues of the vagina. This leads to increased blood circulation in the vaginal area.

The procedure also leads to the creation of more hydrated, healthy cells and improved blood circulation in the vaginal area. This will cause the vaginal atrophy symptoms to disappear.

Erectile dysfunction is defined as an inability to have an erection or to maintain a sufficient time for sexual intercourse to be completed. Sexual dysfunction can occur at any age. Erectile dysfunction is of three types: dysfunction due to a physical or psychological condition or a combination of the two causes.

If the problem persists for more than a few weeks, then it is most likely an erectile dysfunction for which it is advisable to consult a doctor. Sexual dysfunction can occur at any age, but with age, its prevalence increases. Thus, 7% of young people aged 18-29, 50% of men aged 40-70 and 70% of those aged over 70 report erection problems.

How does erection occur? Erection is the increase in volume and elongation of the penis when the individual is sexually aroused. Stimulus can be one created by imagination or one coming from the outside (visual, auditory or tactile). When a man is sexually stimulated his brain sends signals through the nervous system to the penis. The cavernous muscles of the penis relax and the blood vessels at this level are filled with blood. Therefore, the penis increases in size.

To maintain an erection, it is necessary for the blood to remain in the corpus cavernosum until sexual intercourse is completed. Inability to keep blood in the bowels leads to an unsatisfactory erection and becomes an erectile dysfunction. In addition to the physiological component described above, the erection also has a psychological component. For an individual to be sexually stimulated, it is necessary for him to consider the stimulus as a sexual one. The same stimulus may be perceived as being of a sexual nature at some point and in others it does not have this connotation. This variability is of interest to the sex of the individual, to libido, to the desire for sexual intercourse and to the mood.

When it comes to erectile dysfunction treatment, CALIBRE uses the PRP Procedure which is an injection that is composed of concentrated blood platelets and growth factors used to regenerate the tissue and vessels of the penis. This treatment helps the patient maintain a healthy erection and also rejuvenates the penis’ skin.

The extraction method being used is EmCyte PurePRPII, the highest concentrated extraction system available. This procedure is a great complimentary treatment to CALIBRE Clinic’s male enlargement procedure.

Abdominoplasty is a surgery to remove excess fat or skin from the abdominal area and often repair weak or distal abdominal muscles, creating a more pleasant and firmer superficial abdominal surface. Abdominoplasty may be an individual procedure, or associated with liposuction.

Many of us want a flat abdomen, toned skin, and we strive to achieve this through exercise, weight control, and a proper diet. However, these methods are not sufficient to achieve this goal. Even people who are of normal weight and a well-proportioned body can have a lax abdomen, with a weak muscle tone. Abdominoplasty also removes stretch marks.

Abdominoplasty is a good option for you if:

  • you are in a good physical condition and you have a stable weight
  • you have realistic expectations
  • do not smoke (smoking slows the healing process)
  • if after the pregnancy loose skin on the abdomen is left
  • if you have gone through a weight loss process and your have loose skin on the abdomen
  • if you do not plan to lose a lot of weight in the next period
  • you cannot do such an intervention if you have internal scars from another surgery
