Vaginal Tightening surgery (Vaginoplasty)
Vaginal tightening/ Vaginoplasty, often referred to as a designer vagina, is a procedure to enhance the feelings of sexual gratification and should allow the woman to receive and give more pleasure when making love. For women who’ve experienced childbirth, vaginal muscles tend to expand during the delivery, the result can often be weak, loose, vaginal muscles. This can be embarrassing, uncomfortable and can even lead to sexual dissatisfaction or difficulty. Even after exercise the condition of the vaginal muscles may not improve. The aim of surgery is to improve the tone of the vagina by tightening the vaginal muscles and supporting tissues.
What does Vaginal Tightening Surgery Involve?
This procedure typically tones vaginal muscle, resulting in greater strength, contraction, and control. Vaginoplasty is a standard gynaecologic surgical procedure. The stretched muscle at the back of the vagina is joined together and shortened with dissolvable stitches, and the unwanted skin is removed. This tightens vaginal muscles and surrounding soft tissues, by reducing excess vaginal lining. The scarring is inside the vagina.
How long does Vaginal Tightening take?
Vaginal tightening is performed either under general anaesthetic or local anaesthetic with sedation, and may require an overnight stay. The operation takes around an hour to perform.
What can I expect from Vaginal Tightening?
Your expectations need to be realistic. The result is an immediate decrease the diameter of the vagina, and an increase in the tightness of vaginal muscles. This will also restore the vagina and supporting structures to a pre-pregnancy stat.
Recovery after a Vaginoplasty Procedure
What will happen in the recovery period?
You will be sore and possibly a little swollen after surgery. After surgery, you are usually able to walk comfortably within a few days and may return to sexual activities within 4-6 weeks. You will need follow-up checks to ensure that everything is healing properly.
What is the recovery time from Vaginoplasty surgery?
Recovery is quite quick a week after surgery you should be able to return to work. The final result will be seen in around 2-3 weeks following your surgery
