Vaginoplasty

Due to the aging process and especially after childbirth, some women can experience a marked reduction in their vaginal muscle tone. When this condition is severe, it can affect sexual functioning and personal hygiene. A surgical procedure called Vaginoplasty, also known as posterior colporrhaphy, is an effective way to tighten and join vaginal muscle tissue and remove extra skin for a more pleasing cosmetic appearance. Dr. Giselle Ghurani, a premier Cosmetic gynecologist surgeon at Prestige Aesthetic Center and one of South Florida’s most sought-after specialists, can provide you with discrete, empathetic and expert treatment for all of your Female genital surgery needs.

Why Vaginoplasty?

Although this type of vaginal surgery is often considered to be a strictly cosmetic operation, there are several medical conditions that it is used to treat. These include:

  • Vaginal laxity and trauma from childbirth or aging;
  • Congenital conditions such as vaginal atresia (absence of or abnormal closure of the vagina) and vaginal agenesis (undeveloped or partially developed vagina);
  • Intersex conditions such as gonadal dysgenesis, androgen insensitivity syndrome, or congenital adrenal hyperplasia.

Although performing Kegel exercises can help to alleviate mild vaginal laxity by strengthening the pelvic floor, Vaginoplasty is frequently recommended in more severe cases.

Benefits of Vaginoplasty Surgery

Women who have this type of Vaginal Tightening Surgery can experience a number of benefits. Those who have lived with congenital vaginal conditions can, often for the first time in their lives, be relieved from pain and other complications while enjoying a fully functioning vagina and total sexual satisfaction. Patients with medical conditions that have affected the appearance or functioning of their vagina can realize full recovery, including improved sexual satisfaction and urinary health. For many, the result is increased confidence, health and intimate wellness.

Vaginoplasty Miami Cost

The cost for this procedure can range widely depending on the extent of the vaginal correction that is needed. The price also increases if you and your Cosmetic gynecologist surgeon elect to combine it with other procedures such as labiaplasty or clitoroplasty. In general, however, you can expect to pay somewhere between $6,000 and $12,000 for this type of Vaginal Plastic Surgery.

Vaginoplasty Procedure Explained

First, your Cosmetic gynecologist surgeon will thoroughly examine you to determine the amount of tightening and skin removal that is to be done. You will be placed under full anesthesia. Next, they will make a pie-shaped wedge to designate the specific skin within the vagina that is to be removed. Once this has been accomplished, the underlying muscle tissue is tightened with strong sutures and the mucosal skin sutured closed. At this point, the doctor will remove any extraneous skin that is protruding to bring about a more pleasing appearance.

Common Risks for Vaginoplasty Surgery

As with all surgical procedures, this type of Vaginal Plastic Surgery comes with general risks, including the chance of excessive bleeding, problems with anesthesia and potential infection. Additionally, conditions including scarring, deep vein thrombosis, and vaginal stenosis. Nerve damage and chronic pain are rare but also possible. Overall, however, the risk level for this procedure is low for patients who are in good physical health.

Post-Operative Care for Vaginoplasty

Bleeding and spotting as well as mild swelling and a brownish-yellow vaginal discharge are normal during the first few weeks after surgery. Your doctor will place gauze packing or a stent in your vagina during the procedure. This will remain in place for five to seven days. Your Prestige Aesthetic Center surgeon, Dr. Giselle Ghurani, may give you a dilation routine to follow over the ensuing weeks. In addition, avoid strenuous activity for six weeks, and do not swim or ride a bicycle for three months. You may elect to sit on a donut cushion for the first month to avoid discomfort. Avoid baths or full submersion in water until eight weeks post-op. If you experience swelling, you can apply ice to the perineal area during the first week.

Unless instructed otherwise, do not resume sexual intercourse until at least eight weeks after Vaginal Tightening Surgery. Since pain is normal after Vaginoplasty, Dr. Ghurani may prescribe an analgesic which you can eventually replace with extra strength Tylenol.
