Female Genital Surgery

Female genital surgery is a highly specialised procedure which enhances the vaginal area. The surgery is often referred to as Aesthetic Vaginal Surgery, Cosmetic Vaginal Surgery or Vaginoplasty. Essentially, the procedure is a “face lift” for the vaginal and vulval areas.

After childbirth, vaginal tissue and muscles can lose their tone and strength. Women can feel dissatisfied with intercourse. Childbirth can also cause traumatic tears which can affect the appearance of the labia and discomfort can result from wearing tight clothing. The surgeon can enhance the appearance of the vaginal area as well as dealing with pelvic prolapse and incontinence.

Costs involved with this type of surgery can be discussed with the consultant. There may be payment plans available where the cost can be spread over many months.

Childbirth can put immense strain on the body. You can see examples of before and after pictures here. With modern techniques no woman need feel ashamed of her appearance. A woman’s femininity can be restored with surgery and sexual activity enjoyed once more. Incontinence can be cured and lost confidence and self esteem fully restored.

Prior to surgery, an anaesthetic cream will be used on the site for surgery. Anti anxiety medication will be administered. An injection will be given half an hour prior to surgery. When a patient’s comfort is assured, surgery will commence. Vital signs will be monitored throughout the procedure and a patient may decide to sleep. A woman will feel relaxed and, when surgery is over, she will be taken to a recovery room. There will be one final examination before the patient is allowed home.

Procedure Guide

Female genital surgery, often known as vaginoplasty in cosmetic surgery, is a procedure that aims to tighten and strengthen vaginal muscles and those that support it. It is a popular treatment amongst women who have just gone through the ordeal of labour. Child birth can leave the vaginal muscles weaker and far looser than they were before the birth; in turn, this can lead to feelings of humiliation and a poorer sex life for couples. The tightening of the vagina produced by the procedure has the effect of heightening the sensation of sexual pleasure, for both the male and the female. This can often rekindle the flagging sex life of many couples after the birth of a child and can greatly improve the confidence in the female.

How does it work?

Vaginoplasty is one of the fastest, safest and most effective cosmetic procedures available. The surgeon tightens the muscle at the rear of the vagina by pulling it closer together and joining it with dissolvable stitches. A considerable advantage of the treatment is that any scarring will occur inside the vagina and will not be visible at all. Any excess skin around the vaginal area is also removed, leaving the area looking more attractive and the patient having a sense of far greater control and strength. Operations are very rarely anything but a complete success and the vagina will be reinstated to a condition commensurate to that before child birth.

The procedure takes no more than an hour and patients should only have to stay one night in hospital after the surgery. Complications are very rare and nearly all patients are left delighted with the results of the surgery.

How hard is the recovery period?

As you may expect, the vaginal area will be swollen for a few days after surgery. This may be quite painful, but painkillers are readily available to ease any suffering. After a couple of days, the swelling should reduce sufficiently for patients to be able to walk around and function relatively normally at home. There are individual differences in recovery time, but on average, it takes about 2 weeks for the vagina to heal to it’s full state.

When can I have intercourse again after surgery?

It is recommended you wait at least 6 weeks before taking part in intercourse again. Ask your surgeon for individual advice.

Should I get a vaginoplasty?

A degree of realism is necessary in order for patients to be happy with the results of their surgery. The operation does not perform any miracles; however, that said, female genital surgery can be one of the most effective cosmetic procedures. Women who are suffering from a poor sex life, low feelings of self worth and confidence, or indeed suffer from incontinence, may benefit from a vaginoplasty. A basic level of physical fitness is also recommended for those who want the procedure and their recovery to be as smooth as possible.
