When to Consider Vaginoplasty
As women age and go through certain life experiences, such as vaginal births, their pelvic and vaginal muscles become loose. Patients often voice concern that intercourse and orgasms feel different due to lack of friction and tightness. They also worry that their partner feels the same. Many women who have this problem are often too embarrassed to talk to their doctors about their concerns. Common reasons why women should consider having vaginal surgery include having a sensation during intercourse, prior vaginal childbirth, prior scarring from vaginal birth.
Alternatives to Surgery
It is possible for women to regain some of their vaginal tightness by modifying their activities and diet. Regular kegel exercises can help and improve the overall tone of the pelvic floor. Emptying the bladder often and eating foods that are high in fiber to prevent further damage to walls and muscles in the vaginal area, can make it easier for women to regain some of their dignity and feelings of vigor. It is important to realize that muscle tone and tightness will not return overnight. It can take weeks or even months before any noticeable changes occur with traditional kegel exercises.
Vaginal Rejuvenation is a Second Chance
Vaginoplasty is a procedure that will tighten up the walls and muscles of the vagina. In order to determine if a woman is a good candidate for the procedure, it is necessary for a surgeon to examine the area. An inspection needs to be done to determine how loose the muscles and walls are in the vagina. After an examination has been done, an in-depth medical history of the patient needs to be taken to ensure that she is a good candidate for the surgery.
Preparing for Surgery
In order to prepare for the procedure and minimize the risk for complications, the patient needs to stop smoking. Avoid the use of aspirin, ginko, ginseng, vitamin E, fish oil, and herbal remedies until the doctor says that it is okay to resume taking them. Go to sleep early and get a full night’s sleep before the procedure.
There is nothing wrong with wanting to have a vaginoplasty. In fact, women who have had the procedure often report that they feel sexier, more confident, and feel more pleasure during sexual intercourse. All of these lead to increased feelings of confidence and empowerment.
