After having experienced several childbirths, a woman’s vaginal muscles have a tendency to enlarge due to stressful expansion during delivery. This can often lead to weak and loose vaginal muscles that kegel exercise may not improve. Many women find that while the experience of childbirth may be the most rewarding of their lives, sometimes the after effects for both their sexual partner and themselves is not as satisfying as it once was.

Vaginoplasty, also known as vagina rejuvenation, is a procedure that can usually correct the problem of stretched vaginal muscles resulting from childbirth(s) and is a direct means of enhancing one’s sexual life once again. The procedure typically tones vaginal muscle, resulting in greater contraction strength and control, thereby permitting greater sensation during sexual experiences.

Adequate Candidates

A good candidate for a vaginoplasty would be a woman in good mental and physical health, who doesn’t smoke or suffer from diabetes. At the same time, HCR understands that discretion and understanding are very important when it comes to procedure such as this. You can rest assures that you will be treated with respect while your privacy is always upheld.

When a woman feels good about her body, her entire life improves. HCR knows that when it comes to making the decision of having any type of cosmetic or plastic surgery, it is completely personal; but the decision to enhance or improve part of your sexual being can be even more personal. You should have no qualms about discussing all the details of the surgery with your doctor in Costa Rica.

The Procedure

The objective of vaginoplasty is to tone the vaginal muscle, resulting in greater strength and the ability to contract. During operation, the stretched muscle at the back of the vagina is fused together and shortened with dissolvable sutures, while at the same time, the unwanted skin is removed. By doing this, the vaginal muscles and the surrounding soft tissue are tightened; by reducing the excess vaginal lining, the scarring is concealed. The procedure can be performed either under general anesthetic or local anesthetic with sedation and can require an overnight stay at the clinic or hospital. The operation usually takes about an hour to perform.

The exact procedure elected to be performed can differ on the tissue that needs to be restored, combined with the patient’s goals. Vaginoplasty is a general term covering several types of reconstructive surgery. The vaginal wall muscle may need reconstruction or there may simply be the need of removing some of the inner lining of the vaginal vault.

Vaginoplasty can be combined with other female genital surgery such as labiaplasty or with other plastic procedures such as breast augmentation, liposuction or tummy tuck.

Post-Op – After Surgery

After this procedure, you should be able to walk right after surgery and go back to doing light normal activity in just a few days. You can also start taking showers around 3 days afterwards. However, we recommend to avoid sexual intercourse, douching or the use or tampons for at least 6 weeks.

During the first 24 hours, you can expect light bleeding and mild swelling. There should be minimal swelling or bruising and any swelling should go down within a day or two.

Health Issues

As with any type of cosmetic surgery, complications are unusual, but they sometimes do happen. However, they are usually minor and can be reduced by precisely following your doctor’s directions before and after the procedure.

Risks concerning this surgery, as with most invasive procedures, include bleeding and infection. However, more specific to vaginoplasty is the risk of post operative vaginal stenosis.

Make sure to ask your HCR surgeon concerning any risks you might have to face when undertaking this surgery. However, you must keep in mind that our certified group of doctors from Costa Rica, works full-time to prevent such scenarios from happening, since we value the health of our patients above anything else.
