- Before & After
Aging takes a toll on our entire body, and physically straining events like childbirth can leave lasting impression that can greatly reduce the confidence of many women. Vaginoplasties, or vaginal rejuvenation, are reconstructive surgeries that help tighten the vagina, giving it a more youthful, defined appearance. Childbirth, especially multiple childbirths, can cause vaginal relaxation. Vaginal relaxation occurs when perineum muscles become weak, and can cause women to lose the control, strength, and tone they once had prior to childbirth. While in this state, the vagina rarely maintains its regular physiological shape, causing a loss of confidence and diminished pleasure during intercourse.Vaginoplasty is a low risk outpatient procedure with minimal recovery time.
Vaginoplasty surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure. In many cases this procedure utilizes lasers to lower the risk of bleeding while increasing general precision. A light anesthesia is generally applied, so be sure to inform your doctor of your medical history prior to undergoing this procedure.
The procedure itself involves tightening and reinforcing the perineum muscles and the vagina to create a more rigid pelvic muscle. This, in turn, creates a tighter more youthful diameter in the vagina. When the procedure is complete, patients will notice an increased pleasure during intercourse. This is due to an increase in vaginal friction created by tightening the vagina. The procedure generally takes a little over an hour to complete, however, vaginoplasty surgeries are often combined with labiaplasty surgeries, and if this is the case, the procedure may take two to three hours.
Unlike many other forms of cosmetic surgery, there is no age restriction for vaginoplasty surgeries. In fact, women between the ages of thirty and fifty commonly request the procedure. You are never too young or too old to regain your confidence.
Women who have undergone childbirth are our most common candidates, but any woman who finds themselves less satisfied during intercourse due to a lack of vaginal friction is considered a valid candidate for vaginoplasty surgery. This includes women who have never given birth, but still find themselves feeling self-conscious or dissatisfied with the change in shape of their vagina.
During childbirth, the vaginal tissues and muscles stretch to help pass the baby through the birth canal. Typically, the vagina will return to normal size after childbirth, however, this isn’t always the case. In many cases, the vagina does not return to its naturally diameter, this is largely due to the massive amounts of stress that childbirth puts on a women’s body. After multiple births it is very common for the vaginal tissues and muscles to be stretched and the pre-pregnancy tightness is then lost.
In addition, there are many women who never feel the same tension in their vaginal muscles as they did prior to their pregnancy. Typically this results in a reduced sensation during intercourse and, for many women, an overall lowered sense of sexual satisfaction. Your doctor may recommend simple kegel exercises to assist in regaining vaginal tone. This is especially true for women who have recently given birth. Kegel exercises are intended to strengthen the pelvic floor. Unfortunately, they are rarely successful in regaining the muscle tension women have pre-pregnancy. In contrast vaginoplasty surgeries are highly successful in allowing women to regain their sexual satisfaction and overall confidence.
The ideal candidate for vaginoplasty surgery are in good medical standing and good physical condition. Prior to the procedure, it is recommended that women consult one of our physicians in order to gain a more reasonable expectation of the results and risks associated with the surgery.
As is the case with most cosmetic procedures, there are some risk associated with the vaginoplasty procedure. Most notably, scarring, infection and bleeding. However, modern procedures utilize surgical lasers to reduce the risk of scaring and excessive bleeding. In addition, the risk of infection can be greatly minimized through the use of post-surgical antibiotics. The vaginoplasty procedure is relatively safe, posing minimal risks compared to numerous other cosmetic surgeries.
The recovery involved in vaginoplasty surgery is relatively minimal. Common symptoms after the procedure include: spotting of blood, slight pain, and swelling. These will generally occur during the first few days following your procedure and will generally dissipate over time. Pain medication can be prescribed to manage discomfort during recovery, and ice packs can be used to help reduce any swelling that occurs. After three to four days, women can resume normal day to day activities without worry. Generally, patients will return to their jobs within two weeks of their surgery. However, it is recommended that patients wait six to eight weeks before resuming strenuous or sexual activities.
