Vaginoplasty

What is vaginoplasty?

Vaginoplasty is a vaginal rejuvenation surgery whose objective is to correct the distension of the tissues of the vaginal canal and recover the tone and contraction capacity of the vaginal muscles.

It is performed under sedation on an outpatient basis, so that the same day of the intervention the patient will be discharged from the hospital.

Why is it performed?

This surgical procedure is performed in those women who wish to correct episotomies after childbirth, or those who suffer from a widening of the vaginal canal due to age, menopause or multiple births.

What does it consist of?

The vaginoplasty surgical procedure consists of closing the muscles located around the vagina, which are distended or deformed and are responsible for giving strength to the vaginal walls, while improving the elasticity and control of the vulva.

The results of this operation are usually highly satisfactory, since a narrower vagina and a stronger pelvic floor are obtained without leaving visible scars in the area. In addition, in many cases the satisfaction of sexual relations affected by this type of malformations is improved.

Preparation for vaginoplasty

The seven days prior to surgery, it is important to avoid taking antiplatelet agents to limit the risk of bleeding and bruising. Anti-inflammatory drugs should be avoided for a period of three days prior to surgery.

Post-operative care

During the first 48 hours after surgery it is normal for the patient to feel some discomfort. It is necessary to rest during this period and place cold in the affected area.
