Vaginal canal can become loose or stretched due to normal ageing process and childbirth. This laxity or stretching can somewhat interfere in a couple’s sexual activities. This can also pave way for urinary incontinence as such due to lack of muscle control. In order to get a revamp, Vaginoplasty or vaginal rejuvenation is the cosmetic procedure which is quickly gaining recognition around the world.

Overview of Vaginoplasty (vaginal rejuvenation)

Vaginal rejuvenation is a combination of vaginoplasty and labiaplasty procedures, collectively known as Vaginal Tightening surgery. It is a surgical procedure which is used to enhance and restore the cosmetic appearance or function of the vagina. This procedure gives an improved look to the labia and resultantly one can sense a tightened vagina.

Candidates for Vaginoplasty (vaginal rejuvenation)

Females who experience vaginal prolapse due to aging process or childbirth can go for vaginoplasty. For such females, tense vaginal canal may decrease the pleasure of sexual activity both for her and her partner. If you are one of those losing out on sexual pleasures due to apparent laxity of the vaginal canal, you must step forward and talk to your cosmetic surgeon about the procedure. Bulky labia is known to causing irritation, yeast infections and painful intercourse. Women who have not yet experienced motherhood but are concerned about the lack of vaginal tone affecting confidence, can undergo vaginal tightening cosmetic surgery.

Vaginoplasty (vaginal rejuvenation): Pre and post surgery

Vaginal tightening surgery is performed under general anaesthesia and intravenous sedation. The cosmetic surgery procedure may take up to an hour depending upon the severity of the problem. It may consist of:

  • Labiaplasty: This method is used for reduction of bulky labia. A lengthy strip of labia minora from the inner labial fold may be removed. In order to further reduce the bulkiness, the V-shaped portion of labia minora may also be removed. In certain cases, the reduction may also require liposuction of labia majora to get rid of bulkiness and transforming the outer lips.
  • Vaginoplasty: This cosmetic surgery procedure aims to tighten the vagina by removing the excess vaginal lining by a cruciate shaped incision and tightening the muscles and surrounding tissues creating an effective tightened vaginal canal. The revamped vaginal structure takes care of the vaginal canal, vulvo-vaginal structure, and the mucous membrane.

The Recovery Process

You can resume your daily activities after the discharge from the hospital or clinic. Refrain from doing heavy work or exercises for six weeks post surgery. Avoid indulging in sexual activities for at least 6 weeks following vaginal tightening surgery.

Are you planning to go ahead?

If you are concerned about your vaginal appearance, diminished sexual pleasure or urinary incontinence, you should really consider vaginal rejuvenation with your cosmetic surgeon. Vaginoplasty is the best available option for those looking to work upon the aesthetic look of the genitals and adding a spice to love-making.

Ever since I was 11 or 12, I had irregular labia. Few years back, I went through labiaplasty and there was no pain. Results were quite good.
