Too Loose, Too Tight or Just Right: The Truth About Vaginas
It’s not uncommon for women to worry that their vaginas are uncomfortably loose or painfully tight. Until recently, a woman dissatisfied with the size of her vagina had few options, but Los Angeles OB/GYN Dr. David Ghozland says an increasingly popular procedure called vaginoplasty combined with other techniques can give women the vaginal confidence they deserve.
Understanding vaginal function
A woman’s vagina consists of very strong and elastic muscle tissue. These muscles are able to tighten and contract as needed. They also are designed to relax during sexual arousal to accommodate penetration during intercourse. Like penises, each woman’s vagina has unique variations in size, but typically a “tight” feeling vagina is just a symptom of lack of arousal or anxiety, which may cause muscles to clench. A small percentage of women also experience a condition called vaginismus that causes painful vaginal clenching and may make intercourse difficult or impossible. This condition requires the intervention of a physician.
When it comes to vaginal looseness, it is true that over time a woman’s vaginal muscles may relax, especially following childbirth or due to hormonal changes during menopause. This may result in diminished sexual pleasure or stress incontinence. These symptoms may increase with age, and in the past, doctors may have recommended Kegel exercises to strengthen loose vaginal walls.
Vaginoplasty is a procedure that can be used to correct vaginal looseness and it can be combined with other procedures to address concerns that range from excessive tightness to discomfort during intercourse. Performed in Los Angeles by Dr. Ghozland as an outpatient procedure, vaginoplasty utilizes a laser combined with traditional surgical vaginal tightening methods to restore vaginal elasticity. Women who have undergone the vaginoplasty and vaginal rejuvenation surgery experience many benefits, including:
• Enhanced muscle tone, strength, and elasticity of vaginal tissues
• Increased sensation during intercourse
• Better control over urinary incontinence
• Improved external vaginal appearance
If you are unhappy with the size of your vagina for any reason, consider a consultation with a board-certified physician like Dr. Ghozland. Vaginoplasty and vaginal rejuvenation techniques can address embarrassing issues such as excessive vaginal looseness, vaginal tightness or even dissatisfaction with the vaginal appearance. Thanks to modern technology, vaginoplasty is a safe and effective way to address and correct any number of gynecological concerns.
