Doctors have long neglected female genital surgery, a subject surrounded by taboos. Doctors as well as patients are embarrassed to approach the subject and ask questions about sex life. The aesthetic problem of the external genital organs when they are experienced as abnormal becomes a functional and psychological problem.
Female genital surgery is not restricted to the external genitals (nymphoplasty), ie the labia minora, the labia majora, and the clitoris with clitoral hood and pubis or Mount of Venus. Vaginal surgery is now part of female genital surgery and is increasingly practiced by Doctor Catherine Bergeret – Galley female aesthetic surgeon in Paris at the request of her patients.
Vaginoplasty or vaginal tightening: Who can benefit from this ?
Vaginal surgery is not an aesthetic surgery but rather a reconstructive and functional surgery. The vagina is surrounded by muscles, around the opening, but also along its walls. During natural deliveries, these muscles widen and expand to allow the baby to leave. For many women, these muscles do not return to their original size or shape. Proper repair of the mucosa and muscles is required. The relaxation of the vagina has implications for women and for their men and this can create a real functional problem for the couple with the absence of pleasure because of insensitivity of the vagina.
How is genital surgery or vaginoplastydone
Female genital surgery is done under local anesthesia with sedation in ambulatory hospitalisation or day hospitalisation.The vagina is supported and surrounded by muscles. By suturing and bringing these muscles together, the relaxation is repaired and the vagina tightens. Vaginal lipofilling and lipofilling of the labia majora are combined to improve the quality of the mucous membranes and treat vaginal dryness. This procedure is considered a reconstructive surgery rather than cosmetic surgery .
What are the consequences of vaginoplasty or tightening of the vagina?
Healing is normally compleated within 2 weeks but it is recommended to avoid sexual intercourse for 6 weeks.
There are no visible scars left.
The full sensitivity returns after 2 months and a normal sexual life begins again.
Can vaginoplasty be combined with other surgery?
Yes, vaginal surgery aims to make the vagina narrower and if necessary to repair the muscular walls and thus improve the quality of sexual intercourse. A vaginal lipofilling or fat injections into the vagina associated with vaginoplasty gives an even more enhanched result.
In the case of unattractive appearance of the labia minora, a labioplasty or nymphoplasty can also be performed at the same time, as well as a vulvoperineoraphy if necessary, which means that the vaginal opening is made thighter , especially for women who had tears or episiotomies.
