About Vagina Tightening Surgery
With aging and especially following childbirth, many women find that their vaginal muscles have weakened and stretched. This prevents intercourse from providing the same sensation it used to for both women and their partners when they were younger.
Vaginal Tightening is performed by Dr. Frank Lista at The Plastic Surgery Clinic. Dr. Lista has performed many vaginoplasty surgeries and understands the sensitive nature and importance of the surgery. The Plastic Surgery Clinic is a fully equipped surgical facility with the most modern medical equipment available. The clinic is located in the city of Mississauga.
The Best Candidate for Vaginoplasty
The best candidates for vaginoplasty are women who have found that intercourse is no longer pleasurable due to the stretching of their vaginal muscles. Patients who are currently pregnant or who are trying to get pregnant are not good candidates for this surgery.
The Office Visit
Many women find discussing the nature of this surgery to be difficult. At the Plastic Surgery Clinic we are aware of the sensitive nature of your concerns. The patient is treated with kindness, consideration and dignity.
Dr. Lista will carefully discuss your concerns with you. We are able to ensure that a nurse also be present for you during your consultation if you wish one to be there. You will be given full instructions on how to prepare for your vaginoplasty surgery, and will require a gynecological examination and pregnancy test.
Vaginoplasty can make you feel more comfortable, improve your self-confidence, and reinstate the sexual pleasure you once had. Before you decide to have surgery, think carefully about your expectations and discuss them with your plastic surgeon. You will be placed under general anesthesia or local sedation. The surgery normally takes less than one hour. Dr. Lista will make small incisions inside the vaginal area to join the loose muscles and shorten them. The vaginal opening will also be tightened. All incisions are then closed with dissolvable threads. This ensures that patients do not have to attend the clinic to have sutures removed at a later date.
Following your surgery we will ask you to gently wash the area with soap and water regularly. Although we give all patients a prescription for pain relief medications, there is very little pain with this operation.
There will be slight swelling and bruising for
2-4 weeks. Some pain will exist for approximately one week following the surgery. A prescription for pain medication and antibiotics will be given to you prior to your surgery to assist with the pain and to prevent any infection.
You should refrain from any vaginal insertion for 6 weeks; including intercourse and tampons. This will allow the incisions to heal completely and prevent any reopening. You should also avoid heavy lifting and exerting too greatly while defecating as this may negatively affect your healing. The sutures will dissolve and come out on their own.
You should be able to return to work 1 week after surgery, and resume a light exercise routine. Avoid heavy lifting or strenuous exercise for 4-6 weeks.
You will notice a difference right after your surgery. The vaginal canal should be much tighter than it had been previously. Following the 6 weeks required for proper healing, intercourse should be much more pleasurable for both you and your partner.
Risks and Complications
Every operation has risks and potential complications. Fortunately the vast majority of patients who undergo vaginoplasty have no problems with their surgery and are extremely happy with their results. Risks are rare but when they do occur additional medications or even surgery may be required. Such risks include infection, bleeding, scarring, pain with intercourse, and deformity. The surgery can result in intercourse that is painful. Most patients however never experience these risks as they are quite rare.
