Vaginoplasty, popularly called vaginal rejuvenation, is a vaginal tightening procedure to tone lax muscles along the total length of the vagina and to trim excess vaginal skin in order to decrease the diameter of the vagina. The result of this full-depth procedure is a narrower and tighter vaginal opening and vaginal canal. After a woman gives birth, the vagina loses its tightness and elasticity, loosening the muscles in the vagina and pelvic floor. The diameter and laxity of the diameter may also increase as a woman grows older. Loss of vaginal tone reduces the friction needed for pleasurable sexual intercourse between a woman and her partner. Vaginoplasty repairs stretched vaginal muscles caused by childbirth, and corrects the sensation of a “wide vagina.” Regardless of the cause of a lax vagina, this procedure may enhance sexual satisfaction by increasing friction during intercourse.
Vaginoplasty is sometimes performed to treat congenital genital conditions, including absence of a vagina at birth, as well as abnormalities arising from disease or injury to the vaginal region. By restoring the normal anatomical function of the vagina, vaginoplasty helps many women feel renewed confidence in their sexual relationship. Many women credit vaginoplasty with enhancing sexual gratification for themselves and their partner, even if the woman has not given birth to children.
Vaginoplasty is often combined with labiaplasty – an aesthetic procedure to beautify the vaginal inner lips – for a complete vaginal rejuvenation. Dr. John R. Miklos and Dr. Robert D. Moore are best Vaginal rejuvenation Atlanta surgeons and they perform a full-depth procedure on the complete length of the vagina rather than merely make superficial repairs. This strategy ensures optimal outcomes, and accelerates healing time. The surgery may be performed under local anesthesia and sedation on an outpatient basis in our office or in the operating room if additional procedures for pelvic organ prolapse are also needed. Most women experience both visual and functional improvements within a few weeks after having a vaginoplasty procedure.
