What are genital warts?
Genital warts are a sexually transmitted disease (STD), caused by some strains of the HPV virus or “Human Papilloma Virus”. Genital warts manifest as small lumps, appearing on female as well as male genitalia. They may be flat or protruding from the skin. Their surface is usually rough and their colour may be either identical to the skin colour or pink. Their size varies, they can be as small as a pin’s head or bigger. They can manifest in groups, although this is not necessary. In several cases, genital warts are not visible but can be felt if the area is touched.
What are the symptoms of genital warts?
Genital warts in most of cases, when manifesting on females, do not exhibit symptoms and thus diagnosis is elusive. A female patient may randomly stumble upon them using touch or see them at a magnifying mirror. Itching is rarely a symptom, but if left untreated for an extended period the lumps may cause pain as they expand and bleed. Symptoms of male patients may include itching of the genital area including the testicles, as well as the perianal area.
How are genital warts diagnosed?
Initial diagnosis is achieved during a scheduled gynaecological test, a Pap test or a colposcopy; definitive diagnosis is achieved by performing a biopsy on the affected area(s).
How are genital warts being treated?
Treatment of genital warts is achieved by topically stimulating the affected areas, using either a laser or diathermy. In certain cases a skin cream is also used in order to fight warts by stimulating the immune system. We will decide the appropriate treatment together once the clinical outline and the benefits of each treatment route are considered.

Frequently Asked Questions
This procedure is suitable for women suffering from vaginal relaxation, which could be caused by multiple childbirths, hereditary factors, or modern way of life (i.e. lack of exercise, sudden large-scale weight loss, smoking, etc).
Laser Vaginoplasty is certainly superior and more advantageous than the traditional method of colporrhaphy, even when a medical grid is used. Using a foreign object (grid) in this sensitive area may cause a permanent and unpleasant sensation during sexual intercourse in the post-operation period, especially so in the cases of particularly active women sexually. This situation is attributed to mucosal erosion of the area, contributing to hypersensitivity of the area as well as pain associated with friction. On the contrary, when Vaginoplasty takes place, no foreign objects are used, and the tissues are quickly restored to a tighter, less relaxed state. As such, a female patient in the post-operation period will be able to increase her sexual gratification as well as enjoy her body exponentially.
Through this particular cosmetic surgery procedure, you can expect a dramatic increase of pleasure achieved during sexual intercourse and a notable improvement of your orgasmic frequency and intensity.
Laser operations are clearly superior to traditional, scalpel-based, procedures. Using laser equipment, a completely blood-free and painless procedure becomes possible. Surgical incisions and tissue removal using laser offers extreme precision and guarantees a natural result without scars or bruises formed in the area. Recovery and return to daily activities in a normal manner both happen very quickly following the operation. The specific laser equipment used in operations is a low-voltage laser, unable to cause any tissue damage and is not associated with dangerous results.
The procedure's duration – which, depending on location, is performed either at our clinic, or at a suitably equipped external clinic - ranges from 1 to 2 hours depending on the individual case.

Stem cell vaginal rejuvenation aims to increase elasticity of the vaginal mucosa and make a healthier sexual life a reality. The procedure is particularly recommended to women facing intense problems with vaginal dryness, or wishing to enhance their sexual gratification. Should sexual gratification enhancement be the objective of the procedure, stem cell vaginal rejuvenation can be combined with a stem cell transfer and infusion in the clitoris area, in order to increase its sensitivity. Vaginoplasty can furthermore take place alongside stem cell vaginal rejuvenation to ensure the most far-reaching and perfect results.
Stem cell vaginal rejuvenation begins with a small-scale liposuction from an appropriate body location (e.g. belly, thighs, etc). Following this, using advanced medical equipment, the collected fat is processed and the elements containing stem cells are properly isolated. Stem cells are collected and infused inside the appropriate areas of the vagina in the final stage of the procedure.
Stem cell vaginal rejuvenation usually takes place under local anaesthesia or light sedation. This method has the added advantage of not requiring the patient's prolonged stay in the clinic, and complete recovery is generally accelerated.
The procedure's duration – which, depending on location, is performed either at our clinic, or at a suitably equipped external clinic - is usually 1.5 hours but may be adjusted depending on the individual case.
