Having a baby can lead to lax and hanging tissue around the vagina, which can cause discomfort and considerably impact a woman’s confidence. A vaginoplasty procedure could help you reach your desired cosmetic appearance, comfort, and function if you are dealing with vaginal looseness. A Greenwich vaginoplasty surgeon at our clinic could help you determine whether this is the right cosmetic vaginal procedure for you.

Benefits of a Vaginoplasty

There is a wide range of benefits that a woman may experience after undergoing a vaginoplasty. A vaginoplasty can result in considerably firmer skin, enhanced pleasure during sex, and improved overall muscle control. This procedure can also improve sensation and response during intercourse. It follows that a woman who has given birth, experienced a uterine or vaginal prolapse, or is unhappy with the appearance of her vagina may be a good candidate for vaginoplasty.

The Procedure

A vaginoplasty is an invasive procedure performed under anesthetic, but there are also non-surgical alternatives such as laser therapies that can help a woman achieve a firmer vaginal area. Non-invasive options use radio frequencies or lasers to warm the skin, which then triggers collagen creation. It may take several weeks after a laser procedure for a patient to notice a substantive difference in the firmness of her vaginal area.

During a vaginoplasty, a Greenwich surgeon would remove excess skin and reunite muscles that have moved apart as a result of giving birth. Before the procedure, they would identify the excess skin to remove and mark the area before making incisions. After the vaginoplasty is completed, the surgeon would stitch the area closed.

Following a vaginoplasty, there is generally a recovery period of seven to 14 days. However, the patient should refrain from sex for up to two months.

Risk Factors

A vaginoplasty is generally considered a safe surgery, but there are some potential risks to be aware of and discuss with a Greenwich surgeon before undergoing this procedure. For some women, a vaginoplasty can cause bleeding and scarring. Women who plan on getting pregnant again may not be good candidates for a vaginoplasty, as giving birth can reverse the results of the procedure. It is best to discuss these and any other concerns you may have with a qualified physician.

Labiaplasty with a Vaginoplasty

It is not uncommon for a labiaplasty to be performed at the same time as a vaginoplasty. While a vaginoplasty is designed to increase the firmness of the vaginal area, a labiaplasty focuses on reducing excess tissue in the actual labia of the vagina.

If excess labia volume has been causing discomfort, a labiaplasty can make certain activities such as exercise more comfortable. A labiaplasty can also cause a woman to enjoy heightened pleasure and sensation during intercourse. It is best to consult with a Greenwich surgeon who could help a woman considering vaginoplasty determine the most effective procedural options for her individual needs.
