After childbirth and as time goes by, the female genitalia can lose muscle tone, as well as sensitivity. The appearance also is a concern to many women.
Vaginoplasty and labiaplasty are designed to specifically restore and/or enhance the vaginal area. This restoration of the appearance and function can improve the patient’s self image, as well as decrease sexual discomfort and increase sensation, which enhances a woman’s overall sexuality.
A labiaplasty involves the creation or reshaping of the labia (lips) of the vagina. Labiaplasty may be performed to revise and improve anomalies or congenital conditions such as large or prolapsed inner labia (labia minor). Labiaplasty may also be performed to repair the area following disease or injury, especially childbirth.
The surgery can be performed in the office under local anesthesia or mild IV sedation. After the repair, the dissolvable sutures disappear in a week or two. The result is a more youthful appearing labia, with less discomfort (panty irritation), and increased erotic satisfaction in many patients.
A vaginoplasty may be recommended when the vagina undergoes undesirable changes from aging or pregnancy. These changes include loss of firmness of the outer labia and loss of fullness and padding of the vaginal walls and mucosa. Additionally, a vaginoplasty may be recommended when the birth canal delivery or episiotomy tear has relaxed vaginal support.
The surgery involves making internal incisions to tighten the musculature, resulting in greater contraction strength and control. This causes an increase in the amount of friction during intercourse and improvement of satisfaction of both sexual partners. Dissolvable sutures are placed and recovery is about two weeks.
