Ladies, when it comes to childbirth, we get the short end of the stick. Vaginal laxity is one example. Our bodies stretch to accommodate new life, and when it’s over, not everything always comes back into place the way it was before. Luckily, the vaginoplasty is here to help our bodies regain the tightness it had before. So, how exactly does vaginoplasty work?
Vaginoplasty is a procedure that tightens the vagina. Often, childbirth can leave the tissues and muscles of the vagina loose, and they do not regain the tightness that they once had. Vaginoplasty brings the separated and loose muscles together to form a tighter vagina, resulting in a better sexual experience.
How Does it Work?
Vaginoplasty is achieved through the removal of excess skin and the tightening of the underlying tissue with strong sutures. Once the tissues are tightened, the skin is sutured closed. Simple as that. The result is a narrower vaginal canal, which can help in sexual satisfaction. Lastly, vaginoplasty can be done with either a local or general anesthesia.
What are the Risks?
As with any procedure, there are risks. Vaginoplasty, however, is a relatively simple procedure and complications are rare. Risks include pain, infection, and bleeding, all of which can be addressed quickly by your doctor should they occur.
What is the Recovery Time?
After the surgery, you will likely have one or two weeks of rest, followed by eight weeks of no tampons or sex. However, eight weeks of discomfort is worth it for satisfying results.
