Vaginoplasty

Vaginoplasty is a surgical procedure that helps to repair and restore form and function of vagina. It’s ideal in cases where issues like pregnancy, childbirth and aging cause drastic changes in the shape, size, and laxity of vagina. The surgery can fix those very factors causing a much looser vagina and therefore affecting the quality of sex life. So, it can help restore sexual function as well as the aesthetic of the genital.
More importantly, vaginoplasty is a safe and effective procedure that can surgically tighten the vaginal canal through the removal of excess skin and stitching back together of loose muscle.

Your Journey with CosmeSurge

Consultation

During your consultation, you will discuss your expectations and concerns about the surgery. The doctor will ask questions about your medical health, analyze your medical history and check for any medical conditions. Whether you have allergies to certain medications, whether you smoke or drink, or use drugs etc. all will be discussed.

The doctor will also consult you about the procedure details, the level of risks involved and the likely outcome. There will be certain guidelines as well for you to follow before a week or two prior to the surgery such as stop smoking/drinking, stop taking the medications that might interfere with the outcome of the surgery.

Your complete health evaluation will be done, and the doctor may also take image of the areas to be operated to match with the results. Once you are found a candidate for vaginoplasty, the surgery will go ahead as planned. In some cases, the doctor may not advise the surgery altogether if there are some health concerns to you.

Surgery

Vaginoplasty is a surgical procedure that takes 1-2 hour and is performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia. The duration however will depend on the severity of the vaginal laxity and on whether the surgery is done on both, the anterior and posterior vaginal muscles or walls. Before the start of the procedure, the surgeon will determine the amount of tightening required for you. Once the amount of tightening to be done is determined, a pie-shape wedge is marked to delineate the extra skin to be removed from inside the vagina. Beneath the skin, the tissues are tightened with strong sutures. Once the vaginal canal has been tightened, the mucosal skin is sutured closed. If there is external skin that protrudes, this can be reduced as well for a more aesthetic result.

Post Surgery

The time required for vaginoplasty surgery recovery depends on several things and two of the mains factors include your general health before the surgery and the difficulty of the procedure. If you have undergone a minor restorative procedure can hope to heal within a week time, in case of extensive reconstructive surgery you may need some four to six weeks of healing. The procedure is largely safe, and risks are minimal, though some patients may experience infection, scarring or bleeding.

After Care

In order to have successful long-lasting results it is important to follow the below:

  • Take medications as prescribed by the surgeon.
  • You are advised to avoid sex for at least 4-6 weeks post the surgery.
  • Stay away from swimming, avoid rubbing the area using tampons or wearing tight clothes for two weeks.
  • Avoid strenuous exercise or lifting heavy objects for at least two weeks.
  • Take it easy in the first week after the surgery and give the body time to heal and rest.
  • Use icing with a cold pack sandwiched between the underpants and an elastic garment, like Spanx to reduce swelling.
  • Adopt a fiber-rich diet; eat plenty of fruits, vegetables as you heal.
  • It is important to attend the follow-up appointments with your doctor to keep your track of your progress.
