Vaginoplasty (Vagina Tightening)
Especially many couples complain that their sexual life is not the same after normal childbirth.
Vagina Tightening (Vaginoplasty)
Enlargement of the vagina can occur in many women as they age and undergo interventions such as pregnancy and vaginal delivery. As a result of vaginal enlargement, both the sexual life of the couple may be affected and the frequency of vaginal infection may increase, and complaints such as gas from the vagina may be seen. For this reason, many women knock on the door of physicians for vaginal tightening.
What is Vagina Tightening?
Vaginal tightening surgeries are referred to as “vaginoplasty” in the medical literature. Vaginoplasty, that is, “surgical vaginal tightening” operations are among the important surgeries that are preferred as much as labiaplasty surgeries in the field of cosmetic gynecology. Vaginal tightening surgeries are reconstructive (re-repair) surgeries and are performed by gynecologist physicians.
Why does the vagina enlarge?
The vagina is a structure made up of connective tissue and muscle tissue. The main component of connective tissue is collagen. As a result of reasons such as advancing age, vaginal births, pregnancy, abortion and similar interventions, this connective and muscle tissue may be affected and the vagina may expand.
The most common reason for enlargement is vaginal delivery. Particularly difficult deliveries can cause tears in the muscle and connective tissue of the vagina, causing permanent enlargement of the vagina. On the other hand, an enlargement may occur in the vagina of the person after a vaginal delivery is planned and labor started, but the baby cannot descend to the pelvic roof, and after a cesarean section.
Although we say that the most common reason for vaginal enlargement is previous deliveries, sometimes complaints related to vaginal enlargement can be seen in women who have never given birth or even become pregnant. The connective tissue structures of these women are genetically weak and as a result, the elasticity of the connective tissue of the vagina is high. This situation can cause a feeling of loosening and relaxation in the vagina with the effect of getting wet during sexual intercourse.
Vaginal rejuvenation (renewal, vaginal rejuvenation)
Vaginal rejuvenation is a term that can be used in a broad sense. The need for rejuvenation of the vagina is not only due to its enlargement; It also occurs because the vagina loses its elastic and rugged structure due to aging and the decrease in hormonal levels, especially during menopause.
All applications made to restore the old structure of the vagina can also be called ‘vaginal rejuvenation’ or ‘vaginal renewal’ applications.
Vaginal rejuvenation procedures can be performed in two ways: surgically (vaginoplasty) or laser vaginal rejuvenation (LVR).
Although surgical vaginal tightening can be done in different ways, it is the most used classical posterior repair operation in practice. As a result, the vagina is narrowed as much as desired.
In laser vaginal resurfacing, the thermal (heat) effect of the laser is used. With this effect, some narrowing in the vagina, blood supply and therefore increased sensitivity and tissue regeneration are achieved.
What is vaginoplasty?
The operations performed to restore the old tightness of the enlarged vagina are called ‘vagina tightening surgery’ or ‘vaginoplasty operation’.
In the medical literature, the organ where sexual intercourse takes place is called the vagina (vagina), and the aesthetic operation performed on the vagina is called vaginoplasty (vaginoplasty). Among the people, the vagina is referred to as the “reservoir”. The average length of the vagina is 8-9 cm.
The vagina, which uses its enlargement feature to the maximum during vaginal delivery, cannot fully return to its original state after delivery. The muscle and connective tissue of the vagina is severely damaged and permanent enlargement occurs in the vagina, especially in difficult-to-intervention births and the history of giving birth to a large baby. Depending on the enlargement, the person begins to have problems in sexual intercourse with himself or his partner. This situation puts the person on a quest to restore his vagina.
Vaginoplasty operations are performed by many gynecologists and are known as “colporaphy posterior” (back repair) surgery among gynecological operations. The aim is to narrow the vagina and regain its former tightness.
In vaginoplasty and vaginal tightening surgeries, triangular tissue is removed with incisions made into the vagina, and then narrowing is achieved with transverse sutures. The posterior wall of the vagina is narrowed all the way from the entrance. In some cases, if the muscles have been injured and separated, the pelvic muscles under the vaginal canal are also brought closer together to increase the tightness.
