6 Things You Didn’t Know About Vaginal Rejuvenation

In the realm of cosmetic surgery and rejuvenation, one popular procedure for women stands out from the rest and often comes with many questions. Vaginal rejuvenation, or vaginoplasty, is a one- to two-hour procedure that tightens the muscles and surrounding structures both in and around the vagina.

This allows women a boost in vaginal muscle tone, strength, and control. These can decrease with age and especially after giving birth, and the condition is known as vaginal relaxation.

If you’re considering vaginal rejuvenation, here are the answers to six questions you may have about the procedure.

While sex is often reported as “improved” following the procedure, that’s usually not the main reason why many women undergo vaginoplasty. Many women experience tampons falling out, scar tissue around the vagina, and bowel movement issues.

All of this occurs because of loss of elasticity, which can be due to childbirth or collagen breakdown from the natural aging process.

Vaginoplasty incorporates specific procedures such as labiaplasty, vulvoplasty, clitoral hood reduction, and hymenoplasty.

Speak to your doctor about what your goals are.

The vagina’s natural lubricant is a crucial part of pleasurable sexual intercourse that occurs from the vaginal walls heating up. With the vaginal walls tightened, women experience improved secretion, circulation, and stimulation.

Chronic urinary tract infections (UTIs), yeast infections, and bacterial vaginitis are issues that can be reduced by tightening the structures around the urethra. It can also promote a normal pH balance in the vaginal canal to help fight infections.

The procedure only takes about one to two hours, and it typically has a rather short rehabilitation period. A total of six weeks is recommended for full recovery. No tampons or intercourse are permitted through the course of those six weeks.

Patients who are not expecting any more children are more encouraged than others to pursue vaginal rejuvenation because the results can last the rest of their lives. Otherwise, the process of giving birth can destroy most or all of the effects of the surgery.

Age, menopausal symptoms, natural childbirth, chemotherapy, and even surgery or an injury can result in the loosening of the vaginal muscles and surrounding structures. This can decrease the confidence and sexual pleasure in many women.

Vaginal rejuvenation can help restore intimacy and romance between women and their partners, as well as boost women’s confidence levels.
