Vaginoplasty : Vaginal rejuvenation


Plastic surgery is the set of procedures performed by a cosmetic surgeon to modify or improve certain parts of the body that are considered unsightly to the patient's eyes and that make them uncomfortable or undermine their personal confidence.

With childbirth and aging, some women lose tone in their vagina, the perineal muscles can relax and the genital opening may become too wide. This can cause psychological and physical discomfort in everyday life and during sex, and favors the urinary leakage or prolapse. This enlargement of the vagina causes a loss of sensitivity during sexual intercourse. So women opt for a vaginoplasty surgery that reduces the diameter of their vagina. This technique tightens up the inside of the vagina, and strengthens the muscles of the perineum. The ideal candidates for this type of procedure are women who suffer from urinary incontinence or organ descent also known as Pelvic Organ Prolapse. In fact, the vagina enlargement amplifies the perineum weakness since this latter maintains the genital organs. This surgery is recommended for women who experience physical discomfort, emotional insecurity, discontent and even pain during intercourse and a feeling of loss of femininity.

Vaginoplasty is recommended to women whose vaginal muscles have loosened following childbirth, aging of the tissues or poor muscle quality. Some women naturally have a larger vagina and a gaping introitus.

    How is Vaginoplasty performed?

    During the first examination, the surgeon will ask the patient about their medical history and overall health. They will also discuss with them the various solutions, results and will explain the details of the intervention.

    There are two types of procedures Vaginoplasty and laser vaginoplasty; they are both usually performed under general or local anesthesia as appropriate, and usually last one hour. The Vaginoplasty technique is recommended for patients with significant laxity to the point that a tampon falls out, or for those who suffer from urination incontinence.

    The procedure involves three phases, and each aims for different goals. To tighten the muscles of the perineum, the surgeon will strengthen the perineum tissue located between the vagina and the anus. And then, will practice an incision at the posterior floor of the vaginal canal, bring them closer and suture them together with dissolvable stitches to reconstitute the muscular strap. After that, in order to tighten the entrance of the vagina, the surgeon will close the vagina at the bottom to have a narrower opening. Finally, to rejuvenate the vagina and improve its sensitivity, the surgeon will practice lipofilling or lipomodelling by removing fat, and injecting it on the vagina or labia majora.

    The second method called as laser Vaginoplasty, is also known as vaginal laser. It is a noninvasive alternative of vaginal tightening through heating tissues with radiofrequency waves or laser. This surgery is recommended for women who have color change on their vagina and have dark skin in this area. It can be performed with Vagina tightening procedure.

    Scars related to Vaginoplasty

    After a Vaginoplasty procedure, the patient will notice a swelling but it will disappear quickly.  Stitches used during the surgery will dissolve in 10 days. Thanks to the excellent healing of the mucous membranes, the scars of Vagina surgery are almost invisible since the incision is made in the inner vagina.

    Post operative effects and recovery after Vaginoplasty

    The postoperative effects of a Vaginoplasty are usually painless, but to reduce immediate postoperative discomfort, simple analgesics are prescribed. The day after the surgery, the patient can take a shower with clear water and wash with a mild hypoallergenic soap. They can resume their activities after 5 to 6 days following the surgery, whereas, sex and sports can only be resumed after one month. The recovery period takes ten days including two weeks without a tampon. Regarding the results on the sexual life, they can be appreciated 3 months after the procedure.

    Result and outcome of Vaginoplasty

    After Vaginoplasty, the vaginal opening will be tightened, and the perineal muscles will be strengthened. The results are visible in about 6 weeks; they are long lasting and do not prevent a new birth. The patient must wait 1 month before having new sexual intercourse. This time corresponds to the end of the mucosa healing. Incontinence problems will be resolved, the vagina regains its tonicity and sensibility. The patient's sexuality will improve and thus contributes to the couple's sexual satisfaction.

    Advices before and after Vaginoplasty

    Before Vaginoplasty, it is essential to stop smoking at least one month before and after surgery to avoid impairing healing. Taking aspirin is prohibited during the 10 days preceding the operation. At least 10 days before Vagina tightening surgery, no anticoagulant medication should be taken. Indeed, it is important to stop oral contraception or hormonal therapy to limit the risk of coagulation and blood clot. For the same reasons, the surgeon may ask you wear compression stockings on surgery day. It is also recommended not to eat or drink anything 6 hours before the operation. Furthermore, it is prohibited to take aspirin 10 days before the procedure.

    After Vaginoplasty, the patients should not have sexual intercourse within 4 weeks. Moreover, they should keep the genital area as dry as possible, and after urination or bowel movement, they should gently rinse the genital area. It is important to wear panty in natural fibers and not tight in order to avoid friction on sutures and to promote healing. A "perineum cushion" will provide more comfort to sit. It is advised to have one week off after the surgery. In addition, physical efforts and carrying heavy loads are not recommended during the first month following the operation. After three months, the patient, with more tightened vagina, will notice a sexuality improvement. Indeed, their sexual intercourse becomes a moment of enjoyment and happiness.
