A woman’s vagina goes through plenty of trauma with childbirth and aging, and could often leave her feeling frustrated and self-conscious about her body. Many women are concerned about vaginal laxity or looseness and may not know what options are available to help restore her body’s youthful state and bring back the confidence she once had. Vaginal tightening, or vaginoplasty, is a procedure performed at The Female Pelvic Medicine Institute in North Chesterfield that helps tighten the vagina by strengthening the muscles after childbirth or some other trauma.
Vaginal tightening procedures have multiple benefits that can better a woman’s life. These benefits include:
Vaginoplasty will be performed under anesthesia. Dr. Guerette will begin by making incisions near the vaginal canal. The loose muscles of the vaginal canal will then be tightened to restore a natural and youthful feel of the vagina. If needed, excess skin will also be removed at this time. The incisions will then be closed with sutures.
With any major surgery, swelling and redness around the incision site can be expected. Patients should refrain from sex, exercise, and other strenuous activities for 4 to 6 weeks after surgery. Many women return to work the following week after the procedure.
With the natural results of vaginoplasty, you will feel youthful and confident in your body. With benefits such as increased sexual sensation, improved body image, and relief from stretched skin, women are truly given their body back.
As a nationally and internationally recognized urologist, Dr. Guerette is a specialist in the areas of aesthetic gynecology and sexual wellness. He understands the importance of not just creating beautiful, natural results but also ensuring that feel and function of a woman’s body is restored as well.
Dr. Guerette will work hard with each of his Virginia patients to hear their concerns and needs to ensure their individualized treatment plan will be effective for her circumstances.
