Although there are many treatment methods for existing stretch marks, none of them are 100% effective. The most effective method for stretch marks in the abdominal area is tummy tuck; laser treatments or mesotherapy may also be recommended for other areas.
Vaginoplasty after Childbirth: Genital Region Whitening and Aesthetics
Loosening in the genital area due to normal birth can be eliminated by vaginoplasty operation. The operation is performed under general anesthesia and takes an average of 1 hour.

Color darkening may occur in the genital area due to high hormone levels during pregnancy. Laser treatments or mesotherapy can be carried out for this purpose.
