Vaginoplasty is not a new term anymore. Even if we don’t discuss it openly, it is a well-known and frequent surgical procedure these days. As is evident by the name, it helps to combat sagging skin around the vagina – the surgery tightens and tones it up. It is often combined with labiaplasty, where the shape of the vaginal lips is restored for cosmetic and practical reasons.
Hullabaloo around vaginal reconstruction surgeries
These types of surgeries are known as vaginal rejuvenation techniques, and are increasing in popularity, albeit hush-hush, with each passing year. It has met with its share of controversies and criticisms, with doctors claiming the surgeries are unsafe and not necessary because it tampers with natural progression of the body, which eventually succumbs to aging. But then again, numerous reputed surgeons who built a career in this field, have strongly defended the procedures and backed up their statements with proof that the associated risks are minor and can be easily tackled.
Things to keep in mind:
Normal activities like cooking, light cleaning, etc. can be resumed shortly after the procedure is complete, although you have to abstain sexual intercourse for some time. It is natural to have concerns regarding side effects such as pelvic relaxation, vaginal prolapse, stress urinary incontinence, endometriosis, and pelvic pain, but vaginal tightening is totally safe. Women who are breastfeeding and have recently given birth can also opt for this surgery.
This procedure is great for post-menopausal woman. A technique called FemiLift enhances collagen production and remodeling in the vagina which in turn results in rugae or architecture surging back. It is a fantastic opportunity for a youthful vagina. However, it is advisable not to undergo surgeries while menstruating. If possible, try to schedule your procedure around your period.
