Following childbirth, some women want vaginal rejuvenation to restore tightness to their vagina -- usually to improve sexual gratification for themselves and their partners. Some women ask us about vaginal rejuvenation because they are uncomfortable with the appearance of their genitals and vagina. Women often seek vaginal tightening surgery in conjunction with labiaplasty, a medical procedure that reshapes the labia that surround the vagina.
Vaginal rejuvenation is not considered elective when it is performed as a medical necessity to treat pelvic prolapse or urinary incontinence. Vaginal surgery may also be required to repair vaginal injury due to sexual assault or to correct damage caused by cancer or other diseases.
Also known as a vaginal enhancement, vaginoplasty is an invasive cosmetic surgical procedure which attempts to tighten the muscles and tissues of a woman's vagina. This is generally done with lasers.
Is There a Recovery Period Afterward?
Recovery following vaginal rejuvenation typically requires less time than recovery from a second child delivery. Requirements for recovery after Vaginoplasty include:
As with any surgery, complete healing is generally at 13 weeks. We consult with our patients so they can decide if this procedure is best for them.
The benefits of laser treatment are typically noticeable almost immediately. Women report having increased sensation and a reduction in issues with dryness following laser treatment. The results of more invasive vaginoplasty or labiaplasty are noticeable following recovery, which can a few weeks. Most patients report that they are happier with the appearance of their vaginas and that their libidos and sexual responsiveness improved.
