Vaginal Tightening Q & A

What is vaginal tightening?

Vaginal tightening — also referred to as vaginoplasty or vaginal rejuvenation — is a procedure to correct loose vaginal muscles that have stretched excessively from one or more childbirths. The surgery normally produces greater vaginal contraction strength and control during sexual intercourse, increasing sensation, and satisfaction.

 

How do I know if I need vaginal tightening?

Childbirth, while a natural process, is also rigorous. It can stretch tissues and separate muscles, creating a lack of tone and function in your vagina. It can also create a tear in the muscles that support your vagina.

Some women have experienced tampons falling out and sex that is no longer as satisfying after having a child. A gynecological examination can reveal the reason; it’s likely due to loose vaginal muscles from childbirth.

Dr. Wolny reviews your symptoms and medical history to ensure that you receive the best treatment available. If surgery is right for you, she also explains the necessary steps leading up to and following the procedure. Dr. Wolny is a highly trained robotic surgeon who has an outstanding record in vaginal tightening. 

 

What happens during the vaginal tightening procedure?

Vaginal tightening is a standard surgical gynecologic treatment. It strengthens vaginal muscles and the surrounding soft tissues and brings the muscles closer together by removing excess vaginal mucosa, or lining. You experience tighter vaginal muscles, resulting in increased friction during sexual activity and heightened satisfaction.

 

What are the benefits of vaginal tightening?

Vaginal tightening enables you to give and receive sexual satisfaction with your partner again. The procedure also helps alleviate stress incontinence and means you no longer have to worry about tampons slipping out. Getting back to normal is a great benefit.  

 

What is the recovery time?

After surgery, you can walk comfortably within two or three days and can return to sexual activities within four to six weeks. Surgical risks are usually minimal and can include infection, bleeding, and scarring. These risks are associated with most surgical procedures and can usually be prevented.

What is a Vaginoplasty?

For women who have had multiple, vaginal childbirth, the muscles in the area can become enlarged due to the stressful expansion they undergo during the delivery. The result can often be weak or loose vaginal muscles and many women find that even after exercising them and using other techniques, they do not improve. Numerous women find that although the experience of childbirth is extremely rewarding, occasionally the after effects for both their sexual partners and themselves can be quite frustrating and discouraging. Vaginoplasty, also referred to as vaginal rejuvenation, is a procedure which can typically correct these issues associated with stretched vaginal muscles which resulted from childbirth and can dramatically improve the quality of one’s sexual life. The procedure can usually tone vaginal muscles, which allows for greater contraction strength and control. Thus, allowing for greater sensation during sexual activity.

What is the Procedure Like? 

Vaginoplasty is a standard surgical gynecologic treatment. It strengthens vaginal muscles and surrounding soft tissues by removing excess vaginal mucosa, or lining. An immediate decrease in the size of vaginal muscles is experienced, which causes increased friction during sexual activity to increase satisfaction.

What is Recovery Like? 

After surgery, the patient is traditionally able to walk comfortably within two or three days and can return to sexual activities within 4-6 weeks. Surgical risks are usually minimal. However, they can include infection, bleeding, and scarring. These risks are associated with most surgical procedures and can usually be prevented.

What Should I Do Next?
