Marina Plastic Surgery First US Site to Offer Geneveve by Viveve

MARINA DEL REY, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#DrGrantStevens–Grant Stevens, MD, FACS, a board certified plastic surgeon and founder
of Marina Plastic Surgery in Marina del Rey, CA, announced that his
practice is the first in the U.S. to offer Geneveve™ by Viveve®,
the single-session, 30-minute, in-office treatment for women with
vaginal laxity that incorporates patented radiofrequency energy to
stimulate and generate collagen.

“We are excited to be the first to introduce Geneveve to our clients,”
Dr. Stevens said. “Geneveve treats vaginal laxity, which results from
over stretching the vaginal introital (opening) during childbirth. As a
result of this tissue damage, women can experience a decrease in sexual
satisfaction and physical sensation during intercourse, which can
adversely impact sexual health and quality of life.” He added that just
like procedures that stimulate collagen to make the face and body more
youthful, Geneveve uses collagen stimulation to shrink vaginal tissue
achieving previous tightness.

During vaginal childbirth or sexual activity over a period of time,
these tissues can over-stretch, leaving the patient with a feeling of
looseness, especially around the vaginal opening. The loss of tightness
eventually leads to a diminished sexual sensation and satisfaction
during intercourse.

“Geneveve is a perfect complement to our mommy makeover procedure,
allowing women to experience a return to their pre-pregnancy days of
vibrancy, lubrication and tightness,” said Dr. Stevens. He added that in
a sexual satisfaction survey of women who had undergone the Geneveve
treatment after experiencing vaginal deliveries, 67% of the women
reported an increase in vaginal tightness at 30 days and 87% at six
months after the treatment. While vaginal rejuvenation surgery is right
for some patients, many more just need a simple non-surgical out-patient
treatment that requires no anesthesia.

Dr. Stevens is the Chairman of the USC-Marina Aesthetic Surgery
Fellowship and the Director of the USC Division of Aesthetic Surgery. He
is a Clinical Professor of Surgery at the USC Keck School of Medicine,
Division of Plastic Surgery. He is a board certified Diplomate of the
American Board of Plastic Surgery, a Fellow of the American College of
Surgeons and the International College of Surgeons. Dr. Stevens is also
on the Board of Directors of the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic
