Vaginal Rejuvenation Surgery - ISAPS

Vaginal Rejuvenation Surgery

Restores a tighter and narrower vaginal canal and opening.

Procedure

Childbirth, pregnancy, weight changes and aging can cause the vaginal muscles and tissues to become relaxed, stretched, torn, and even protrude from the opening. These concerns can be repaired with vaginal rejuvenation surgery, also called vaginal tightening or vaginoplasty. Through an incision in the perineum (the area between the vaginal opening and the anus), the surgeon can remove excess skin and tissues, tighten the length of the vaginal canal, and reduce the size of the vaginal opening.

This procedure is often combined with labia reduction, which involves reshaping enlarged lips of the vulva.

Length

One to two hours.

Anesthesia

General anesthesia is typically chosen for best results and greatest patient comfort. However, some patients may choose local anesthesia.

Inpatient/Outpatient

This is an outpatient procedure, meaning the patient can leave the surgical facility the same day after recovery from anesthesia.

Risks

Risks include infection, bleeding, numbness, pain during intercourse, loss of sensation, and scarring.

Recovery

Patients typically experience swelling and discomfort which is more pronounced with extensive repair. Patients can return to work within two weeks and must limit physical activity for six to twelve weeks. Sexual activity may be resumed after approximately six weeks.

Results

Patients enjoy increased self-confidence, comfort and greater sexual satisfaction.
