A growing issue for women all over is the subject of Vaginal Rejuvenation. Indianapolis, Carmel, and Fishers areas can turn to Dr. Michelle Jones Singer, MD for advice and questions regarding the growing popularity of this reconstructive procedure.
Over time, and especially after childbirth, a number of women may notice the interiors of their vaginas have become much wider. The stretching of the inner tissues and the separating of wall muscles have resulted from a “looseness”. Issues resulting from this expansion can include anything from the inability to maintain the insertion of a tampon, to the severe impairment of sexual pleasure during intercourse by both the woman and her partner.
The majority of the women who choose to get a vaginoplasty range in age from their30s to their 50s. Most have given birth to children and have decided they don’t need to have anymore. This is an important factor when considering this procedure. Avaginoplastywon’t prevent you from getting pregnant and the act of childbirth can undo all the work and recovery that you went through. It is possible to get receive a second vaginoplasty, but the additional procedure will carry more risks.
A vaginoplasty, or vaginal rejuvenation procedure, helps bring the separated muscles together, remove excess mucosa skin, and sometimes includes removal of external skin to provide a more aesthetic appearance.When done correctly, it can re-establish full feeling to the vaginal walls and, by extension, sexual satisfaction to both the women and her partner.
Vaginal Rejuvenation is not designed to be an aesthetic procedure. In most cases, the primary goal of vaginal tightening is to regain lost sexual satisfaction for both the woman and her partner.
Like many minor procedures these days, the surgery is usually done as an out-patient procedure. The results come with minimal scarring and pain, and a quick recovery rate.
How It’s Done
Although a Vaginoplasty can be done under local anesthesia, most women opt to have it performed under general anesthesia. The basic procedure starts with a pie-shaped wedge marked out to delineate the extra skin to be removed from the inside of the vagina.
Beneath that inner skin, the muscle tissues are tightened using strong sutures, narrowing the vaginal canal. After that process is completed, the mucosal skin is sutured closed and any external skin that protrudes can be trimmed if needed.
Recovering from a vaginoplasty usually involves one to two weeks of down time. Women may feel a deep aching for the first few days and must avoid tampons and intercourse for at least eight weeks. Once intercourse becomes safe, the use of a dilator may be prescribed, depending on the amount of tightening accomplished.
Complications are rare, commons risks may include infection, bleeding, and pain.
In Indianapolis, Carmel, and Fishers, Vaginoplasty is a process you can be sure Dr. Singer will go over with your thoroughly, assisting you to make the best decision for yourself and your partner.
