A vaginoplasty, also known as vaginal rejuvenation, is a surgical procedure that is done to help restore the vaginal anatomy of women. Those considering a vaginoplasty in New York will want to take the time to learn more about the procedure to determine if it is a good course of action in their unique case. If you believe that this is something that you may want to move forward with, finding a doctor who is experienced that can perform the procedure is also very important. Here at the Total Women’s Wellness Center, we have been serving women with this and other procedures for more than two decades now, and we would be honored to help you as well.
There are two distinct categories of reasons that women may consider getting a vaginoplasty in NYC, and within those two categories, each woman will have their own personal reasons. For some women, vaginal rejuvenation is a purely cosmetic procedure. When cosmetics are the primary reason for the surgery, it is often combined with a labiaplasty. The vaginoplasty works on the internal structure of the vagina, while the labiaplasty is concerned with the outer areas such as the labia and vulva.
Other women want a vaginoplasty to help restore the vaginal function by correcting issues with the supportive tissues and muscles. Repairs may be needed because of damage caused by trauma, childbirth, or just natural aging. The results can help to tighten up the vaginal canal, resulting in greater sexual satisfaction, improved confidence, and even a reduction in incontinence.
If it’s determined that a vaginoplasty is a good course of action, the procedure can be very effective. Dr. Abboud will talk perform an exam where he will determine what, if any, damage or other issues may exist. He will then talk to you about your desired outcomes, and plan the procedure in such a way as to give you the results you are looking for. Vaginoplasty is a fairly simple procedure, which will be done under general anesthesia in most cases, and the vast majority of patients are very happy with the results.
The initial recovery time is quite short for this procedure. The procedure itself only takes between one and two hours in most cases. After the surgery, patients typically spend about a day in recovery before they are able to go home. There will be some pain or discomfort while the healing takes place, and all sexual intercourse should be avoided for a minimum of two weeks. When you are discharged, you will also be given a set of exercises that you can perform to help strengthen and tighten the muscles of the pelvic wall. Performing these exercises as instructed will help to reduce scar tissue, and ensure the size of the vaginal wall after healing is where it should be.
