It is not uncommon for aging women and women who endure childbirth to notice some sort of vaginal relaxation over time. With a desire to restore the vagina’s muscle tone, size, and shape, many women choose to undergo vaginal rejuvenation. This surgical procedure, otherwise known as vaginoplasty, correct vaginal looseness caused by childbirth or aging. Parts of the vaginal area, including the vaginal canal, the labia, and the vulva, are altered, corrected and tightened, resulting in an overall improved appearance and enhance sexual gratification.
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.
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.
