What Happens in a Vaginoplasty Procedure?

  1. Vaginoplasty Procedure

Many women, particularly after childbirth, are unhappy with the appearance and feel of their vagina. Other females may feel self-conscious about their performance during sex with a partner or simply feel uncomfortable in their own skin.

For many women, vaginoplasty procedures can make a huge difference in their self-confidence, physical appearance and ability to enjoy sex.

Understanding what is involved with the procedure and consulting with Dr. Parvin Mani at San Diego Cosmetic Laser Clinic can help you decide if you are a good candidate for a vaginoplasty.

How Does the Procedure Work?

At San Diego Cosmetic Laser Clinic, the vaginoplasty procedure will be performed by Dr. Parvin Mani, the same person you will speak with during your initial consultation.

During the procedure, Dr. Mani will remove excess vaginal lining and tissue, then work on tightening the vaginal walls. Most vaginoplasty procedures are performed in around an hour.

To deal with immediate discomfort, Dr. Mani and her staff will recommend pain relievers and using ice regularly to reduce swelling in the area after treatment.

What are the Benefits?

Having this type of procedure done can help women restore their self-confidence when it comes to their physical appearance. While getting treatment after childbirth, particularly a traumatic childbirth where tearing may have been involved is common, some women opt for a vaginoplasty simply to feel better about their bodies.

Getting this treatment can also help many women feel tighter, improving their confidence and sexual pleasure with a partner.

Healing after Treatment

Many women worry that they’ll need to be out of the office or away from their day-to-day activities for weeks at a time after this type of procedure. In most cases, women can return to work within three days of having a vaginoplasty done.

Women that have had labiaplasty procedures done to reshape the labia, or those who have had hymenoplasty procedures to restore the hymen to its condition before intercourse, may need to wait up to a week before returning to work.

Women with physically stressful jobs tend to be able to return to work after seven days.

Using ice regularly and taking sitz baths can help speed up the healing process.
