Cosmetic Gynaecology Procedures at Pristyn Care
The term vaginal plastic surgery covers several different procedures of the female genitalia. Surgical procedures in female genital plastic surgery mainly are in the form of female genital rejuvenation surgery, female genital cosmetic surgery, vulvovaginal plastic surgery and vaginal tightening surgery. Cosmetic gynaecology procedures or female genital plastic surgeries performed by our gynaecologists include labiaplasty, clitoral hood reduction, and vaginoplasty.
Labiaplasty can be simplified as the medical procedure which reduces the length of the labia minora, inner lips of the vagina. Labiaplasty is the most commonly performed vaginal surgical procedure. This surgery can relieve symptoms that a female experiences due to twisting or tugging of the enlarged labia.
The most common procedure of labiaplasty is the trim procedure. During this procedure, the surgeon removes the extra tissues of the labia and then sews up directly. Another popular procedure for labiaplasty is the wedge procedure in which the surgeon removes the pie-shaped pieces of the tissues and then maintains a natural border. The surgeon can also remove the extra folds of the clitoral hood at the same time. In the end, Closure is done using absorbable sutures.
Goal of labiaplasty- The aim of this procedure is to reduce the labia minora to the normal size. Labiaplasty may be carried out on a female to reduce the asymmetry of the inner lips of the vagina, like when one is longer than another. The surgery can also be performed to reduce the length of both the labia.
Recovering from a labiaplasty- In the surgical procedure, it takes about 4-6 weeks for complete recovery. During the recovery period, the patient is advised to not insert a tampon or any other object into the vagina. The doctor also advises avoiding intercourse till the sutures completely dissolve.
What are the risks associated with a labiaplasty?- The risks of a labiaplasty include the common risks associated with most surgical procedures, such as bleeding, hematoma or infection. The surgeon is already prepared to cope with such complications if they occur during or after the procedure. Although, the most common complication associated with labiaplasty is “over-resection”. In some cases, women desire to have an aggressive reduction in the size of the labia. But, this can cause chronic dryness, scarring near the vaginal opening and pain during intercourse.
2. Clitoral hood reduction
Excess folds skin that covers the clitoral hood can be reduced with the surgical procedure of clitoral hood reduction. The extra folds of skin can create a bulge which may become more exaggerated when the labia minora are reduced, and so, a clitoral hood reduction is usually done to improve the balance in the appearance of the female genitalia. A clitoral hood reduction can be performed at the time of a labiaplasty under local or general anesthesia, depending on the preference of the patient.
Risks associated with clitoral hood reduction- The risks associated with clitoral hood reduction are under-resection or over-resection bleeding, hematoma or infection.
Recovering from a clitoral hood reduction- The recovery time for clitoral hood reduction is 4 to 6 weeks. The sutures will dissolve completely during the recovery period.
Results of clitoral hood reduction surgery- Clitoral hoodoplasty is a very successful procedure and when performed by an expert cosmetic gynecologist, it delivers the desired results. Most females choose to undergo clitoral hood reduction surgery along with labiaplasty. Both the procedures performed together have a high success rate of over 90 percent.
Vaginoplasty is a surgical procedure to tighten the vagina. After childbirth, females complain of vaginal laxity, resulting from the stretching of tissues during childbirth. Females with significant vaginal laxity will experience a benefit from vaginoplasty and are ideal candidates for this vaginal tightening procedure. An alternative to vaginoplasty is noninvasive laser vaginal tightening that tightens the vagina without any surgical incisions or sutures.
Recovering from a vaginoplasty- A female may need about 1 to 2 weeks of downtime after the surgery. Some females resume their daily lifestyle after 3-4 days of the surgery. The patient is strictly advised to not insert a tampon or have intercourse for about 8 weeks, until she completely recovers.
What are the results of a vaginoplasty? Vaginoplasty procedure results in a tighter vaginal canal, which gives relief from problems such as urinary incontinence and also helps enhance sexual satisfaction.
