Vaginal Aesthetic and Rejuvenation Surgery, or Vaginoplasty, refers to two types of surgical procedures:
- Cosmetic surgery of the external vaginal and vulvar structures.
- Functional surgery of the vaginal canal to improve sexual function and gratification.
Aesthetic Vaginoplasty is performed to improve the appearance of the external portion of the vagina and vulva. Many women who are born with enlarged labia or have this occur after childbirth or as part of the normal aging process, consider vaginal cosmetic surgery to help improve the appearance of these structures.
Vaginoplasty corrects damage that occurs to the supportive tissues in the walls of the vagina and muscles due to vaginal childbirth or aging. This damage can result in a relaxed vaginal canal and or a gaping vaginal opening. Vaginoplasty tightens the inside of the vaginal canal and the opening of the vagina to increase friction and improve sexual sensation.
- Looking to improve sexual sensation
- Looking to improve the appearance of external genitalia and restore self-esteem
Vaginoplasty is a standard gynecologic surgical procedure that takes about 60 – 90 minutes. This procedure is performed under general anesthesia. You will be spending about an hour in the recovery room to be monitored for any postoperative complications. Typically, patients are discharged home the same day.
After your surgery, there will be some pain and discomfort. Your physician will prescribe medication to relieve pain and antibiotics to prevent infection. You will also be instructed to refrain from sexual intercourse for approximately four weeks or until you heal completely. This is very important since the contraction of vaginal muscles during sexual activity may cause tearing and incomplete or delayed healing.
Vaginal muscle strengthening exercises are very important. They can reduce the amount of scar tissue formed and help to ensure an adequately sized vagina.
You must also avoid being constipated and lifting heavy objects for about a month after your surgery.
The results from Vaginoplasty can be very rewarding – both for the woman’s self-esteem and where improved sexual function is a goal.
Vaginoplasty tightens and restores the vaginal muscles, re-establishing friction that increases sexual gratification for both women and men. There is a 98% success rate. In about 2% of the cases, a minor revision may be necessary to achieve appropriate results.
