Vaginal Rejuvenation

Vaginal Rejuvenation

After pregnancy, the vagina can be stretched and loose. A rejuvenation procedure can tighten the vaginal passage. Woodglen Aesthetics gynecology physicians can restore a woman back to her former self.

PROCEDURE

Performed under general anesthesia, vaginal rejuvenation involves tightening of the inner and outer muscles for better muscle tone, control and strength to increase friction felt during intercourse. The procedure also removes excess lining of the vagina to enhance its appearance for a more youthful look. Some women choose to combine vaginal rejuvenation with other aesthetic vaginal surgeries, such as the labiaplasty, clitoral hood reduction and hymenoplasty.

RECOVERY

Patients can engage in light activities post-surgery, as long as it does not put strain on the vaginal area. After 4-7 days, patients may return to work and continue their normal routine in a cautious manner. The recovery period is a total of six weeks, which is also how long the patient must practice pelvic rest. Tampons, intercourse, hot tubs, baths, and strenuous activity such as rigorous exercise are highly discouraged throughout the duration of the recovery.
