Vaginoplasty, also called cosmetic vaginal surgery and vaginal rejuvenation, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that helps women attain increased comfort and improved self-esteem. Childbirth, weight fluctuations, and certain medical conditions can affect the muscles of the vagina and surrounding tissues, causing them to become lax and, in some cases, protrude out of the vaginal opening.
Women choose vaginal rejuvenation surgery for a variety of personal reasons, which may include one or a combination of the following:
- Restoring a tighter and narrower vaginal canal and opening
- Removing excess stretched vaginal lining
- Repairing damage due to childbirth
- Increasing sensation during intercourse
- Improving self-confidence
Our doctor can combine vaginoplasty with other cosmetic procedures including labia reduction and liposuction of the pubic area (mons pubis) to provide multiple improvements with a single surgery and recovery period.
Vaginal rejuvenation is performed as an outpatient procedure with the patient under general anesthesia. During the procedure, your surgeon removes excess loose vaginal lining and surrounding tissues, and then tightens lax vaginal muscles. The surgery typically takes 1 to 2 hours to complete.
After vaginal rejuvenation surgery, most patients are ready to return to work within about a week. Any initial discomfort may be controlled with prescription pain medication for the first few days. Patients will need to avoid heavy lifting, strenuous exercise, and intercourse until cleared by their doctor.
