What is vaginal rejuvenation?
Women born with an enlarged labia, or those who have given birth to children vaginally, often seek vaginal rejuvenation to restore the appearance, sexual sensations, and urinary function of the vaginal region. Mature women also appreciate the benefits of vaginal rejuvenation to address age-related discomfort.
What is vaginoplasty?
Vaginoplasty includes any of the surgical procedures used to restore your vagina’s anatomy to a more youthful state.* This might include cosmetic surgery of the external parts of the vagina and vulva, functional surgery of the vaginal canal or both.* Cosmetic surgery restores the look of the external portion of the vagina and vulva.
Aging and childbirth can result in deterioration or damage to the walls of the vagina and vaginal muscles.* Vaginoplasty can also repair a relaxed vaginal canal or gaping vaginal opening. Tightening up the canal and the vaginal walls can improve sexual sensations.* Expect a 98 percent success rate; the other two percent usually achieve success after a minor procedure to revise the original surgery to get the results they desire.*
What does vaginoplasty entail?
During a vaginoplasty, patients are put under general anesthesia as Dr. Sargon Bebla performs the procedure in a hospital setting.* Expect to be hospitalized for no longer than two days.* The procedure itself lasts 60-90 minutes, then you’ll be sent to postoperative recovery for a short time for monitoring.*
What can I expect during recovery?
Recovery depends on the extent of your specific treatment. In many cases, you’ll experience some pain and discomfort, but you’ll be given pain medications and antibiotics to prevent infection.* You’ll need to refrain from sexual intercourse for at least two weeks, or until you’re cleared by Dr. Bebla.* Having sex too soon could cause tearing or insufficient healing. Sutures will be removed a week after the surgery, and you’ll be expected to perform specific exercises to strengthen the muscles of your pelvic floor.*
You’ll also be given exercises that help you stretch the vaginal muscles and discourage the buildup of scar tissue.* For the month following vaginoplasty, do everything in your power to prevent constipation and avoid lifting heavy objects.*
