Vaginal Rejuvenation Q & A

What Is Vaginal Rejuvenation?

A vaginal rejuvenation is also called a vaginoplasty. This type of surgery tightens the opening of the vagina and the vaginal canal. The level of tightness is determined based upon the patient's personal wishes.

Why Do Women Have Vaginal Rejuvenation?

The top reason that women get vaginal rejuvenation today is increased laxity in the vaginal area. Many women experience laxity in middle age and during their senior years. It is also a common problem after childbirth, especially for women who have given birth multiple times or who have had multiple babies at once. With the increased laxity, problems such as a lack of stimulation, the inability to fully experience friction, and less sexual gratification, in general, may occur. Another major reason that women decide to have vaginal rejuvenation surgery is that they are unhappy with the appearance of their vagina. Sometimes the outer vaginal lips may be longer than desired, or there is a considerable amount of scar tissue at the opening of the vagina. Regardless of whether the reason for the vaginal rejuvenation surgery is primarily functional or cosmetic, the surgery can create the desired changes. The result of a vaginal rejuvenation surgery can be a stronger, tighter, and more attractive-looking vagina. The procedure is usually done in 1 to 2 hours.

What Type of Recovery Time Is Needed After Vaginal Rejuvenation Surgery?

Most women are comfortable doing some light movement within the first day after vaginal rejuvenation surgery. The doctor typically recommends that ice packs are placed on the incision area while resting as this will help alleviate swelling and pain. Most women can return to work about a week after the surgery. However, strenuous activity should be avoided for some time. Intercourse and the use of tampons should generally wait until about 6 weeks after the surgery. The doctor can give specific advice regarding recovery if women have any other questions.
