Vaginoplasty Surgical Procedure
A vaginoplasty is a surgical procedure designed to rejuvenate and tighten the internal muscular tube known as the vagina. Women who undergo this procedure may have completed childbearing and are dissatisfied with the resulting lack of vaginal tone and tightness.
A common condition sometimes referred to as vaginal relaxation can affect the muscle tone of the vagina causing a number of symptoms such as:
- Pain when exercising
- Problems keeping a tampon in place
- Urinary leakage
- A decrease sensation during sex
Although these are all often embarrassing issues for a woman to talk about a vaginoplasty can help stop these symptoms and bring back the quality of earlier life. The procedure involves reshaping of the vagina to make it tighter and often more attractive. This is created by removing excess vaginal lining and tightening the area of soft tissue and muscle.
This leads to women having more control over her vaginal muscles. The procedure often takes around an hour and you will be with us overnight while you recover. You will also be required to abstain from any sexual intercourse for at least 6 weeks after your surgery.
