Treatment

Diagnosis

Before undergoing treatment, a full physical examination will be carried out by the doctor to check your health condition and a patient will also be given counseling regarding the possible risks and complications. The female is suggested to quit smoking a month before the scheduled surgery date as smoking reduces oxygenation and it hampers the blood flow leading to a loss.

Procedure

First, the anesthesia doctor will administer local anesthesia to numb the genital area. The cosmetic surgeon will then begin the procedure once the area is numbed. The surgeon will pull all the loosened vaginal muscles together in an attempt to restore vaginal laxity back to its original state. Surgeons may choose to restore vaginal laxity for cosmetic reasons, medical reasons, or both. Therefore, the result of the surgery may vary depending on the desired outcomes of each patient. Sometimes, vaginoplasty can be done to repair injuries after childbirth. For such a procedure, the surgeon first removes the extra skin in order to recreate the vaginal shape. Then, the surgeon uses stitches in order to secure loose tissues in part or the full depth of your vagina. It is usually believed that all women are born with a hymen. But some women are not born with hymen. So, in that case, the surgeon may graft the skin from the surrounding area and construct the hymen. This is a safe procedure that can be performed in a single sitting and patients can go home on the same day of the surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Vaginoplasty painful?

No, vaginoplasty is performed under anaesthesia. It numbs your body and makes you temporarily unconscious. This is why the surgery itself is completely painless.

However, please know that is completely normal and should subside substantially with your post-care medicines, rest and passage of time within 2 weeks.

Basically, do not eat anything that can strain your genitals because of some irritation or difficult stools.

How long should I wait before sex after a vaginoplasty?

Vaginoplasty is a very fine procedure and involves multiple stitches on the insides. Therefore, until the stitches completely dissolve and the vagina heals thoroughly, doctors advise total abstinence. The entire recovery should take around 6-8 weeks. Then as you slowly start to feel better, please visit your gynecologist for a final follow-up`. When your gynecologist approves the last check-up, you are good to resume as you like.

What is better- vaginoplasty, labiaplasty, or vulvoplasty?

While all three surgeries- vaginoplasty, labiaplasty, and vulvoplasty are plastic surgeries of the vagina, they all vary in functions.

  • Vaginoplasty is a surgery focused at repairing the entire vaginal site. It helps restore both- the urinary and sexual functions of the organ, while also redefining the aesthetics. As a result, it helps tighten, shape, smoothen, and rejuvenate the entire vaginal area, thus solving vaginal looseness, dryness, and urinary leakage.
  • Labiaplasty is a surgery to reshape only the inner or outer labia. It is mainly done to solve the constant chafing, rashes, and pain around the labial region.
  • Vulvoplasty is a surgery focused on repairing only the vulvar region. It thus shapes and repairs only the outer vaginal area, thus helping enhance sexual sensation, function, and sensitivity.

Since all three are different surgeries, performed for different needs and functions, which open is better for you depends entirely on your exact health condition, personal needs, and expectations. Therefore it is best you discuss this directly with a doctor and let you both decide this post a detailed understanding of your symptoms and physical examination.
