Vaginoplasty- Rejuvenation Following Childbirth

Following vaginal birth, or simply due to the effects of aging, many women find themselves in need of restorative procedures. A vaginoplasty helps improve sensitivity and vaginal tone.

What is Vaginoplasty

“Vaginoplasty” refers to many procedures, any combination of which may be used depending upon the patient’s goals and desires. Not all procedures are invasive and surgical in nature. There are a number of vaginal rejuvenation procedures that fall under the umbrella of “vaginoplasty.” The overall procedure is designed to rejuvenate the structures of the vagina and surrounding areas, and may include:

  • Labia Majora
  • Clitoris
  • Cervix
  • Urethra
  • Bartholin’s Gland
  • Rectum
  • Labia Minora
  • Lymphatics
  • Anal Sphincter
  • Urethral Sphincter
  • Perineal musculature
  • Nerve tissue
  • Large blood vessels

Benefits of Vaginoplasty

Childbirth is not the only cause of a loosening or slackening of the vaginal structures and musculature. Aging may also cause a loss of tone. Undergoing a vaginoplasty is also thought to improve sensitivity in some patients. Patients may choose from a variety of procedures, depending on their personal needs and goals, including:

  • Revirgination – the repair of the hymen, the thin tissue barrier at the entrance to the vagina
  • G-spot Amplification- collagen is injected into the walls of the vagina, known as the “g spot” to increase sensitivity and pleasure.

Clitoral Unhooding- Removing the tissue that typically covers the clitoris.

Risks of Vaginoplasty

The specific risks of vaginoplasty and labioplasty have not been recorded, but there are general risks associated with any surgery, and with vaginal surgery.
