Know more about Vaginoplasty
Vaginoplasty is a surgical procedure that aims to tighten the vaginal canal and surrounding tissues. The procedure can be performed for cosmetic reasons or for functional reasons, such as to alleviate discomfort or pain during intercourse, to improve bladder control, or to restore vaginal muscle tone after childbirth or other physical changes.
Vaginoplasty typically involves the removal of excess vaginal skin and tissues, and the tightening of the vaginal muscles. This can be accomplished through various surgical techniques, including vaginal reconstruction, vaginal rejuvenation, or anterior and posterior colporrhaphy. The specific technique used will depend on the individual patient's needs and the surgeon's expertise.
The procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia and typically takes 2-3 hours to complete. After the procedure, patients will need to take time to recover, which can take several weeks. Pain and discomfort during the recovery period can be managed with pain medications.
