Age, childbirth, and illness can all affect the muscle tone of the vagina, a condition sometimes referred to as vaginal relaxation. When this occurs, a woman may begin to experience a number of bothersome and uncomfortable symptoms. Exercise may become painful, tampons may not stay in place, urinary leakage may occur, and sensation during sex may dramatically decrease. These are all very sensitive issues, and while they may be hard to discuss at first, it is good to know that a Vaginoplasty can help bring back your old quality of life.
Vaginoplasty is the plastic surgery of the vagina – its entry way and/or canal. The procedure reshapes the vagina making it tighter, and often more attractive, by removing excess vaginal lining and tightening the surrounding soft tissues and muscles. The surgery gives a woman more control over her vaginal muscles, making daily routines better – such as wearing a tampon comfortably and exercising without worry. Tightening of the vagina, making it similar to the pre-baby days, also provides a snug fit during intercourse – making sex more pleasurable both for the woman and for her partner. The difference will be noticeable and may even be life changing.
Dr. Vitenas will perform your Vaginoplasty procedure at the Houston Surgery Center, located in the same building as Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery. The operation will be performed under full anesthesia and lasts a little over an hour. While you might experience a little discomfort during the first couple of days after surgery, we will provide the appropriate medications so that you remain pain free. After three to five days you can return to work, and after about six weeks you can resume sexual intercourse. Naturally, there are risks associated with Vaginoplasty, as with any type of plastic surgery, but complications such as infection or scarring are very rare.
