Introduction to Vaginal Tightening

Also known as vaginal rejuvenation or female genital plastic surgery, vaginal tightening refers to a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to “tighten” and restore a woman’s vagina to a more youthful and desirable appearance. Most women that undergo the procedure often opt for labiaplasty in Sydney which is done in conjunction with the latter to reshape the labia or the vulva (the inner and outer lips of the vagina). Over the years, vaginoplasty surgery has become fairly popular among women particularly those who desire genital rejuvenation for various reasons – excessive weight loss, pregnancy, genital injury or ageing. Whatever the case, a vaginal tightening procedure can certainly prove invaluable in improving a woman’s comfort and confidence.

When to consider vaginoplasty surgery?

There are a number of circumstances that may prompt women to consider undergoing a vaginoplasty operation:

• Pain or discomfort during sexual activity

• A significant decrease in sexual sensation due to repeated vaginal child birth

• Undesirable changes in vaginal features that naturally occurs with age

Of course as a fairly delicate cosmetic surgical procedure, there are several considerations that women ought to make before investing in a vaginal tightening operation. For one thing, patients ought to get a good grasp on what the procedure can actually do for them as well as the possible complications that may occur as a result of the operation. For one thing, patients can expect their vaginal features to return to near perfect tightness just as it was in their youth or prior to child birth. More importantly, a restored vagina can help boost a woman’s confidence and many report increased comfort in wearing certain types of garments such as panties and bikinis.

Having mentioned some of the great things that a vaginal tightening operation can do for women, it is certainly not without its share of cons – the procedure carries the risk of haemorrhage and infections as well as that of bladder injury especially when performed by an inexperienced plastic surgeon. More importantly, it can be difficult for some couples to get used to the results of the procedure.

Yet another important thing that women ought to consider about vaginoplasty surgery is that it’s not just for anybody. Patients interested in the procedure would need to make sure that they are a good candidate for the operation. Fortunately there isn’t much contraindication to having the procedure done. You simply need to be of reasonably good health and realistic expectations out of the operation.
