SOUTHFIELD, Mich., Feb. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- St. Valentines Day has always conjured up images of eager boyfriends and husbands rushing to buy that perfect gift that says, "I Love You." Over the decades, women have become better able to communicate more specific wish lists to their significant others rather than simply accepting generic and, sometimes, short lived gifts such as flowers.
Such was the case for Carl and Kristina of suburban Chicago.

"I was so embarrassed; I no longer wanted him near me without the lights off." That's when the Chicago couple began their internet research. Kristina was going to get the ultimate gynecologic cosmetic makeover for St. Valentine's Day.

When queried whether she had spoken with her gynecologist, Kristina explained that, "She said it was all a normal consequence of childbirth, not to worry and just keep doing my kegel exercises. I was so disappointed. I had been doing kegels for two years with no results!" The couple booked their flight for Michigan and arranged a date for surgery.
The consultation took place at the Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation Institute
of Michigan. During the exam, Dr. Berenholz realized that Kristina was also
suffering from stress incontinence, a condition where women lose urine when
they laugh, sneeze, cough, jump or run. The surgery was scheduled for the
following day. Kristina had a Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation to tighten her
vagina. She also had a Laser Labiaplasty and a sling procedure to cure her
