Vaginoplasty (Vaginal Tightening) in NYC
As women get older, their vaginal tissues can become more relaxed for a variety of reasons. This can alter the shape and size of the vagina. As a result, women can experience a decrease in sexual drive that negatively impacts their self-esteem and relationships. Vaginoplasty can restore the vaginal structure inside and out to improve overall sexual health and intimacy.
How Does Vaginoplasty Work?
Vaginoplasty refers to surgical procedures that rejuvenate the vagina to a more youthful look and function. The techniques involved depend on the desired goals. Vaginoplasty done as a cosmetic procedure improves the outer structures. Functional surgery improves the vaginal wall to boost sexual gratification and function. The procedure can also be used for gender reassignment and be combined with other vaginal rejuvenation procedures.
During the functional surgery, extra skin is removed from the back of the vaginal wall. The tissues underneath are tightened with sutures. The surgery takes around two hours to complete, usually under general anesthesia. You may be able to return to work about a week after the operation. Certain restrictions such as avoiding sexual intercourse and heavy lifting may apply for about six weeks after the surgery.
