What is Vaginoplasty (Vagina Tightening)?
Vaginoplasty is the name given to corrective surgeries performed on the vagina. Vaginal tightening and vaginal aesthetics are used in the same sense as vaginoplasty. The vagina is the organ where sexual intercourse takes place, which is also called the reservoir or reproductive tract among the people. The vagina has an elastic channel structure that can be opened to surround the body entering it. The elasticity of the vaginal walls, which are very sensitive to the female hormone called estrogen, decreases in some life periods. During periods when hormones are very high, such as pregnancy, it has the ability to expand so that the baby can exit without any problems. In life periods when female hormone decreases, such as menopause, the mucosal surfaces of the vagina become flat, the collagen structure changes and its elasticity decreases. Like other body tissues, it shows certain changes with advancing age.Vajinoplasti
Why Is Vaginal Tightening needed?
Vaginal delivery, especially in cases of large baby, difficult birth, prolonged birth, intervened birth, multiple births, birth tears, suture errors, structural connective tissue weakness (collagen deficiency), smoking, excessive weight gain, hormonal changes, progressive Age can lead to enlargement of the vaginal canal and decrease in vaginal tightness (tonus). As a result of the incompatibility between the enlarged and loosened vagina and the penis, sexual excitability decreases, and even sounds due to air leakage may occur during intercourse. This situation may cause sexual unhappiness and distancing of the couples over time. Vaginal tightening or vaginal aesthetic procedures called vaginal rejuvenation may be required to correct the loose vaginal canal and enlarged vaginal entrance. Vaginoplasty is the most preferred genital aesthetic surgery.
How is Vaginoplasty (Vaginal Tightening) performed?
Vaginal tightening surgery is the process of removing the tissues surrounding the vaginal canal as required, and narrowing the vaginal canal by ensuring the normal positions of neighboring organs. In vaginal tightening surgery, usually 4-5 cm from the entrance of the vagina is narrowed. In this procedure, there is no shortening in the length of the vagina, so the depth of sexual intercourse does not change. These surgeries are relatively bleeding-free and are performed in a completely controlled and gentle manner.
There is no significant risk of surgery performed for vaginal tightening. Vaginal tightening surgery is a simplified form of standard gynecological surgery applications called cystocele and rectocele repair.
Vaginal tightening operations are best performed in the first half of the menstrual cycle, ie within the first 10 days following the end of the menstrual cycle. This is because when the new menstrual bleeding begins, tissue healing is substantially complete. In addition, since estrogen hormone is at the highest level during this period, recovery is much more successful. In the presence of discharge, wound, warts and similar infection in the genital area, vaginoplasty surgery should be performed after the problem is treated.
What should be considered after Vaginal Tightening Surgery?
Although the duration of vaginal tightening operations varies depending on the degree of narrowing, it can take up to 30-45 minutes. Generally, patients can return to their daily lives after approximately 3-4 days of rest period after surgery. Since self-dissolving stitches are used in the surgery, there is no need to take stitches. Although it varies according to the extent of the postoperative procedure, it is recommended not to have sexual intercourse during the 4 -6-week recovery period. After the procedure, antibiotics and painkillers should be used and the external stitches in the perineum should be cleaned with antiseptic liquids. Following the control examination to be performed after 4-6 weeks following the surgery, women can start their sexual life again. It is okay to travel by plane or other types of travel after vaginal plastic surgery. Vaginal tightening surgeries in which the loosened vaginal canal and enlarged vaginal entrance are corrected are relatively risky operations with good results.
