Vaginoplasty (Vaginal Tightening)

Adsız tasarım (61)

Factors such as stress, aging, vaginal delivery, rapid weight gain and loss, chronic disease (e.g. diabetes), physical inactivity, and irregular lifestyle can cause the collagen in your vagina to decrease and your connective tissues to lose. As a result, your vaginal muscles and connective tissues to also separate and lose power– resulting in a vagina that is no longer tight, wider than the past, and noisy during sexual intercourse (queefing). This can also cause both you and your partner to lose sensation down.

Separated muscle tissues are brought back together, an appropriate amount of tissue from the vagina to the extent that it does not cause loss of sensation is removed, and then sutured so that tightening is provided. The sutures dissolve on their own within a month. Surgery takes place within your vagina – hence, there is no visible scarring. You’ll be able to return to your normal routine two days and go back to work five days later.
