At Bellevue Plastic Surgeons, Dr. Marosan uses ThermiVa® treatments vaginal rejuvenation without surgery. ThermiVa® is a radiofrequency device that delivers gentle heat to the labia majora (camel toe), labia minora and inner vagina to reduce and tighten those areas. This device gives treated patients both aesthetic and reconstructive benefits without surgery or downtime. ThermiVa® treatments are essentially pain free, safe, and non-invasive (no cutting involved). The ThermiVa® device is applied to the gelled region at a set temperature of 42-45 degrees Celsius. The hand piece gradually tightens and heats up the tissues at the surface and then penetrates deeper to prevent the patient from feeling any discomfort or pain.
Clinical studies have shown that within a few minutes collagen begins to shrink subtly at temperatures higher than 40 degrees Celsius. Furthermore, it has been shown that with repeated treatments these temperatures also stimulate the production of new collagen over time.
Women who are seeking to reduce the effects of child birth (for example vaginal laxity), planning on having children and women who have already had children are perfect candidates for ThermiVa®. Furthermore, women who are seeking to reduce the effects of non-childbirth related aging are perfect candidates as well. Patients treated with ThermiVa® are to come in for treatments about once a month for 3 months. Each treatment takes less than 30 minutes. Upon completion of a total of 3 treatments, patients get to experience and enjoy optimal ThermiVa® results. Many patients report improvement on the first treatment.
Other Benefits of ThermiVa® Include:
- Treats Urinary/Stress Incontinence
- Improves Vaginal Dryness (Atrophic Vaginitis)
- Tightens Vagina
- Shrinks labia majora
- Reduces effects of Aging and Childbirth

"Highly Recommend Dr. Marosan, MD - Dr. Marosan, MD came highly recommended and I am completely satisfied with the results of my surgery. I was apprehensive when I was diagnosed with gynecomastia; but Dr. Marosan was the right choice for me. From my initial consultation, surgery, and follow-up appointments have been flawless. Dr. Marosan and his entire staff are polite and professional."- J. / RealSelf / Aug 24, 2020
"Cant Recommend Enough - Im now 6 weeks op and I have a completely different shape! - I had some weight fluctuation in my lifetime and was unhappy with the tire around my stomach and stubborn fat in areas that were hard to exercise away. I thought it’s amazing that you can transfer fat from one area to another so I decided to get a Brazilian butt lift.I was drawn to Dr. Marosan because he has years of experience, is highly educated, knowledgeable and specializes in the procedure. Also in the reviews and in my experience he was very respectful to me as a woman, and I never felt uncomfortable around him. And we all know you can feel vulnerable when your naked in front of a doctor. He meets you for a free consult, which is amazing! We went over what I wanted to change and improve he was able to educate me on how to approach it to get the best results. He really knows the body well, truly an artist and master sculptor!! He took pictures of my body which he was able to bring up on a screen and draw right on it to show me what he was going to do. I felt very confident in him. I went into surgery during the pandemic and due to the complexity of that to keep everyone safe my husband was not able to come with to support me. However, George and his staff made me feel very comfortable and well taken care of. Everyone there is so warm and kindhearted!I went home with a garment, Lipo pads and drainage tubes. Some doctors don’t give you drainage tubes and your just supposed to drain freely onto your bed, and that would’ve ruined my $3,000 mattress. So I’m really thankful my doctor cares enough about post op to give me drainage tubes that were easy to manage. The doctor and his nurse were always very prompt at responding to questions and being available if I had any concerns.Im now 6 weeks op and I have a completely different shape! I have an hourglass figure, hips, fuller butt and flatter stomach! I can’t believe the transformation! This is already doing wonders to my self-confidence...something I’ve lacked for so long. I find myself actually saying something good about myself and seeing myself in a different light now. I’m so happy with the results and I’m so glad I went to the right doctor!"- S. / RealSelf / Aug 17, 2020
"Dr. Marosan Did a Great Job! [Tummy Tuck/Liposuction/Muscle Repair] - After researching dozens of plastic surgeons in the greater Seattle area for tummy tuck/liposuction, I went with Dr. Marosan because I could tell he was very experienced and does a lot of abdominoplasty and he was the one surgeon who places his incisions super low, right above the pubic area, and his incisions stay there (low) instead of eventually pulling up during recovery. For some reason (probably because it's easier), many other surgeons results showed incisions that were placed much higher than they needed to be. Just check out his before and after pictures and compare them with other surgeons: his after pictures show the whole incision area so you get a very good idea of where your incision will end up. [So many other surgeons after pictures are of women in underwear, so you have no idea where the incision was placed, or if you do get to see the whole area, you'll see how high the cut was]. I am now 10 weeks post surgery and am very happy with my results- he did a great job with the incision, the liposuction of my entire torso, and also the muscle plication (sewing them back together since I've had three pregnancies that separated my ab muscles). He also does a lot of follow up visits and takes pictures of your progress and gives you access to them, so you can really see your transformation.I'm so happy I went with Dr. Marosan- he (and his entire staff!) is wonderful and I highly recommend him/his practice!"- P. / RealSelf / Aug 05, 2020
"Great Doctor — the end results are fantastic. - I had a lower facelift and chin lift about 7 weeks ago after choosing Dr. Marosan for the procedure and I couldn't be happier. He took the time to thoroughly explain what was involved and didn't pressure me to book the surgery. After the surgery, he was very patient with the inevitable questions that I had and was careful to make sure that he saw me regularly while I was healing. (at the age of 67, it took a little longer for my swelling to go down) The end results are fantastic. I have a much smoother jawline without the "pulled" look that one sees in some face lifts and the saggy chin is history. His staff was great also. I would definitely recommend this doctor."- D. / RealSelf / Jul 10, 2020
The treatment wand has a built-in thermistor, which relays the skin temperature to the computer for automatic adjustments to the right level of heat without risking burns. The THERMIVa wand will be passed over the interior walls of the vagina and outside it gently heats the labia and clitoral hood. After the procedure, patients can resume their normal activities, and can resume sexual activity the same day.
What to Expect
Patients may see some improvement after their treatment, but most patients will need about 3 treatments one month apart to get the best results. After the final treatment, the final results should be noticeable in about 2 weeks. Results typically last for 1 year and then one touch-up treatment should be scheduled by the patient yearly to maintain their results.

Thermi RF System?
The THERMI RF Skin Tightening system is a modular system for radiofrequency treatments that uses applications for specific areas, like the THERMIVa for vaginal rejuvenation. The THERMITight, THERMISmooth Body, THERMIbreast and THERMISmooth Face are other applications for noninvasive and minimally invasive skin tightening treatments of the face, breast and body.
ThermiVa or Labiaplasty?
The THERMIVa application is best for women who have mild to moderate skin laxity in the vaginal area and who want to avoid the discomfort and downtime of a surgical vaginal lift. A labiaplasty is a surgical removal of the excess skin in the vaginal area for women with more severe skin looseness. The THERMIVa is more effective on the labia majora and less on the labia minora. THERMIVa is also better for women who are unsure about having more children since it is less expensive, less time consuming, and requires no recovery period.
When to Get ThermiVa?
The THERMIVa treatment will not affect future pregnancies or prevent a vaginal childbirth, but patients will need to wait 2 – 3 months after giving birth to start THERMIVa treatments.
