Vagina Tightening Procedure Options To Consider: Vaginoplasty
Childbirth may stretch the birth canal and vagina; this could also reduce the strength and tone. When the vagina becomes overstretched or wide, it can reduce pleasurable sensation and reduce friction. It can also make intercourse painful and lead to urinary incontinence and bowel movement problems.
Some exercises like sphincter re-education and perineal help restore the lost muscle tone and strengthens the pelvic floor. Also, Kegel exercises can help. This may not benefit women with many children. Vaginal tightening procedure options can come in handy at this point.
Women have carried the shame of such conditions secretly with no help in sight. Some found it embarrassing to discuss the problem with gynecologists. Some vagina tightening procedure options such as vaginoplasty can help fix the problem.
Today, vaginal rejuvenation or vaginoplasty is gaining popularity. Women with laxity of the vagina is a suitable candidate for the procedure.
What to expect during the vaginoplasty
Vaginoplasty takes one hour, and it may be done under a local or general anesthesia with sedation. Some patients may have to stay overnight so they can be observed. Also, during the vaginal rejuvenation surgery, stretched muscle at the end of the vagina is shortened and then stitched together using dissolvable stitches. The excessive vaginal lining and unwanted skin are removed. This tightens the soft tissue and the vaginal muscles around the vagina. The surgeon uses a scalpel, laser, and some stitches.
When the surgeon reduces the diameter of the vagina, it increases the tightness of the muscles and restores the vagina to the pre-pregnancy state.
To promote proper and quick healing, the surgeon will schedule follow up appointments as well as check-ups. You may have some swelling, redness, bruising and bleeding. Lots of women have these side effects. Others may have some difficulty walking, but it becomes better after a couple of days.
Most people who undergo vagina tightening procedure options will see results after about 2 to 3 weeks. Sexual activity can also be resumed after 4 to 6 weeks. This depends on the speed of healing of the patient.
The best results can be gotten when surgeons and patients work together to ensure the success of the procedure.
Do and don’ts of vaginoplasty
