Vaginoplasty is a procedure designed to tighten one’s vagina. Many women struggle with loose vaginal lips and general sagginess in the genital area, especially after giving birth.
There is an alternative to this procedure that deals with the same predicament differently, through heating tissues and radio waves or a laser. However, patients with significant laxity should not expect to benefit from the alternative solution, but only with surgical intervention.
If you’re contemplating on whether to undergo this procedure, take a look at this list of conditions that would make you a viable candidate:
- Women who have recently given birth and struggle with stretched vaginal tissue
- Women who struggle with sexual dysfunction due to vaginal laxity
- Women who have no cardiovascular issues
- Non-smokers and non-drinkers
If you fall into the category of individuals that can relate to the aforementioned conditions, don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment with our surgeon and review your options. We are among the best places for vaginoplasty in Madrid.
Before surgery, patients are asked to do a bowel prep. On top of that, our surgeon will ask you a couple of question that may look similar to these:
- What is the reason for this surgery in the first place?
- What are your expectations?
- Medical history as well as a full list of medications you’re currently taking
- Clarification about involved risks and potential complications
It is of utmost importance for you to be completely honest while answering these questions because your answers may affect how and when the procedure should be done. The interview might seem trivial and maybe even redundant, but it’s actually an important step in the whole process.
The procedure itself is pretty straightforward and low-risk. Once the amount of tightening is determined, a surgeon will mark the area of skin that needs to be removed from the inside of your vagina. The tissue underneath the skin is then tightened with the use of strong sutures.
Once the canal is tightened, the skin is sutured and closed. In some cases, there may be some external skin that protrudes, but that can be mitigated as well during the procedure.
Known risks of a vaginoplasty include potential infection, pain, and bleeding. Most of the known complications can be remedied with the use of various medications. However, prevention is the key, so make sure to follow the doctor’s instructions and advice.
You will have to rest for at least one to two weeks. You might feel a deep ache in the first couple of days. On top of that, sexual intercourse and tampon use are strictly forbidden for at least eight weeks. Some patients may be instructed to use dilators, but that’s only in cases where there was a large amount of tightening involved.
A successful vaginoplasty usually results in a tighter vaginal canal which is proven to help enhance sexual satisfaction. Contrary to popular belief, this procedure does not focus on the aesthetic appeal of your genital area, but rather its functionality.
