Vaginal Tightening Surgery In Mumbai

The vagina is an elastic muscle, and it can expand due to childbirth and age. It expands during childbirth for obvious reasons, as a woman needs to push out the baby. And, with increasing age, there are changes in hormones that reduce the strength of the muscle and the surrounding connective tissues. Hence, the vagina may lose elasticity.

The vaginal walls can become thin due to a lack of estrogen, making one feel a change in diameter. This is known as vaginal atrophy. This loose feeling makes women want to go back, and here is where vaginal rejuvenation surgery comes in.

What happens during Vaginal Tightening surgery?

Vaginal tightening surgery is carried out under general anesthesia. A typical surgery will take approximately 2 hours. The treatment may include one or all of the following:

The surgery is designed to tighten the vagina after it has become lax following childbirth or the aging process. It can either be a full-length or half-length tightening. A depth of 7-8 cm is full length. It usually includes perineoplasty to remodel the perineum as well. The surgeon joins together the stretched muscle at the back of the vagina, therefore shortening it. This is kept in place using dissolvable stitches before the excess vaginal lining is removed, then, tightening of the surrounding soft tissues is done. When the muscles and ligaments in the vagina are tightened, they can support the other internal structures including the bladder, bowel and womb (uterus). The surgery also repairs the pelvic floor muscles and the perineal body at the entrance to the vagina. This helps with common problems such as urinary incontinence and a lack of sensation.
