What is Vaginal Tightening?
Often referred to as a “Designer Vagina”, many women choose to undergo vaginal surgery, or cosmetic gynecology, for various reasons. It can often be because they are dissatisfied with their genital appearance or would like to increase their sexual experience.
Understanding Vaginal Tightening Surgery
Vaginal tightening is particularly popular with new mums. Following childbirth, often the muscles of the vagina will lose elasticity and begin to sag. This relaxation of muscle tone, causing a loosening of the vaginal muscles and surrounding tissue, can also occur as women begin to age. Vaginal tightening surgery aims to assist with the muscle tone of the vagina by ensuring the muscles and supporting tissues are tightened.
The subject of vaginal surgery is no longer taboo meaning that women who feel uncomfortable with the appearance of their vagina, or who may have felt discomfort or even embarrassment have the opportunity to have it rectified with a procedure carried out by the very best cosmetic surgeons.
Vaginal Tightening Aftercare
We use dissolvable stitches as standard for our vaginal tightening procedure. In the period immediately following your surgery, it is important to keep your incisions clean and dry. Approximately 7 to 14 days following the procedure you will notice any tenderness and swelling start to subside. We recommend wearing loose and comfortable clothing during this time, while sexual and physical activity is not recommended until at least 6 weeks after your post- op surgeon consultation.
