Cosmetic gynecology

BH Gynesthetics, a revolutionary concept of combining gynecology and aesthetics, refers to a menu of services and procedures that enhances the sexual experience primarily for women and indirectly for men as well.

Dr. Abe Marinduque, a cosmetic gynecologist who trained and practiced in the United States for more than 20 years is the first Filipino to be accredited by the Laser Vaginal Institute of Los Angeles, having trained under the tutelage of Dr. David Matlock. Dr. Marinduque has pioneered the BH Gynesthetics procedures in the Philippines. Dr. Marinduque answers these Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):

What is Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation (LVR)?

The vagina can be tightened in various ways but laser technology, has allowed a new procedure called Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation (LVR) to be a well tolerated out-patient procedure.

With age or childbirth, the vagina loosens and the sensual side of the sexual experience is diminished. LVR reconstructs the vaginal support system resulting in a tight vagina. This tightness is permanent unless the woman has another vaginal birth after the surgery. With the use of lasers, LVR is safe and relatively bloodless. Recovery is faster and the aesthetic results are better.

Women who have involuntary leakage of urine when they cough, sneeze or laugh and who have relaxed vaginas are also good candidates for LVR, with the added benefit of enhanced sexual gratification.

Who Are Your Patients?

My patients are women who have a strong desire to take charge of their sexuality. These women know what they want. They want to enjoy sex and in the process are able to please their partners better. The age range is from 18-60 years old.

All patients are screened. I strongly discourage women to undergo LVR if they have sexual dysfunctions that are the purview of the sex therapist. Education is the hallmark of my consults. Knowledge about their sexuality empowers my patients to seek viable solutions to their various concerns pertaining to sex.


The recovery period is short. My patients are able to return to work after 7 days. If they come from abroad, they are able to fly out of the country in about 7 days. They cannot engage in vaginal intercourse for six week although other forms of sexual stimulation are allowed as long as she is comfortable doing them.

Do You Have Anything To Offer Women Who Have Various Vulvar Complaints Such as Elongated Or Redundant Labia Minora Or Inner Lips of the Vagina?

I also do Designer Laser Vaginoplasty (DLV), which provides creative ways of aesthetically enhancing the outside of the vagina. Redundant inner lips of the vagina may be trimmed with the laser to achieve pubescent appearance to the vulva. Those women who desire to be virgins again may have laser hymenoplasty to reconstruct the hymen to a virginal status.

What About Women Who Are Not Ready For Surgery But Want to Have Their Sexual Gratification Enhanced, Do You have Anything For Them?

These women may want to have the G-Shot. This is a 15-minute non-surgical procedure that enhances sexual arousal and gratification by intensifying the stimulation to the Grafenberg spot. This spot is located on the anterior wall about 2 inches away from the vaginal entrance and is sensitive to deep pressure.

In a study done at the Laser Vaginal Institute of Los Angeles, 87% of those women who received the shot experienced:

  1. enhanced sexual arousal;
  2. increased frequency and duration of orgasm;
  3. heightened desire for sex.

I use specially formulated collagen, which does not require a pre-injection testing for allergies. The shot lasts for 4 months and this is translated to 4 months of sexual bliss!
