Vaginal Rejuvenation – Surgical and Non-surgical Options
Vaginal rejuvenation can be done for cosmetic purposes or medical reasons i.e. to rectify vaginal relaxation, dryness or itchiness.
It’s also called vaginal reconstruction and involves repair of stretched, loose or torn tissue and strengthen, support and tighten the vaginal walls as well as pelvic organs.
Should I Have Vaginal Rejuvenation Surgery?
Thanks to the hormone estrogen in women’s body, vaginal walls are naturally supple and elastic. But after childbirth and/or over time, the muscles there can stretch and loosen.
If estrogen production is stopped because of hormonal imbalance or menopause, it can lead to vaginal atrophy.
Such loose and weakened vaginal tissue can lead to incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. For some women even sex becomes less enjoyable or even painful.
Several of these unpleasant symptoms can be treated with vaginal rejuvenation surgery. Vaginal rejuvenation can be chosen for the following reasons:
- Treatment of pelvic organ prolapse
- Repair of torn tissue because of childbirth, injury or an improperly healed episiotomy
- Restoration of vaginal tightness after a large birth or multiple births
- Tightening of vaginal space for an improved sexual experience
- Treatment of urinary incontinence
Types of Vaginal Rejuvenation Surgery
Vaginal rejuvenation surgery can be performed in many different styles. Your surgeon will choose among them after considering your gynaecological health and your expectations from the surgery.
Also known as perineoplasty, perineorrhaphy aims at surgically repairing the perineum, which is a small stretch of skin located between anus and vagina.
Some perineorrhaphies include labiaplasty or vaginoplasty too. These are cosmetic surgeries that are meant to improve the look of the external genitalia to suit a desired aesthetic.
Rectocele is a kind of pelvic organ prolapse wherein the back wall of vagina is bulged due to a push from the rectum.
It commonly happens due to a challenging delivery, pelvic floor weakness or a previous surgery. It can lead to lower back pain as well as painful sex.
A rectocele repair surgery surgically reconstructs the posterior vaginal wall and restores rectum to its correct position and firms the stretched vaginal tissue.
A cystocele is another kind of pelvic organ prolapse wherein the front wall of vagina is pushed by the bladder. This too causes painful sex and urinary issues.
Cystocele repair involves giving an incision in the vaginal wall and bringing the loosened tissue together. This gives sufficient support to your pelvic floor and lifts the bladder to its appropriate position so as to prevent recurrence.
