I Am Not Done Having Kids. Should I Wait To Get Vaginoplasty?
While it may not be as openly talked about as it should, every woman deserves to feel comfortable and confident when it comes to her intimate wellness. One of the more seldomly discussed topics when it comes to women’s health is the appearance and/or function of the vagina. However, vaginal concerns affect millions of women across the country each year, particularly those who have had children. The professional team at Dallas Cosmetic Center, led by board-certified gynecologist and plastic surgeon Dr. Otto Huertas, understands the personal nature of these concerns and is dedicated to offering effective and discrete care to help women achieve their cosmetic and functional goals. Learn more about how vaginal rejuvenation surgery after childbirth can restore a more youthful tone and appearance, and find out when it may be appropriate to consider the procedure in Dallas, TX.
Who needs vaginal rejuvenation?
In most cases, vaginal rejuvenation surgery is a personal desire rather than a medical necessity. However, many patients can benefit both cosmetically and functionally from vaginal rejuvenation procedures, such as labiaplasty and vaginoplasty. Oftentimes, women experience physical changes in their vagina related to pregnancy, childbirth, or the aging process. If you are frustrated by any of these signs or symptoms, vaginal rejuvenation in Dallas, TX may be right for you:
- Loose vagina
- Stretched out vagina
- Long labia
- Asymmetrical labia
- Recurrent infection
- Pain with intercourse
- Decreased sexual satisfaction
- Discomfort with tight-fitting clothing
- Self-conscious about appearance of vagina
- Tampon falls out
What is vaginoplasty?
Unlike labiaplasty, which primarily addresses the vaginal lips, vaginoplasty is a form of vagina tightening surgery that restores tone and strength. In many cases, women feel that their vaginal muscles have become stretched out or loose following childbirth or simply as a byproduct of the aging process. This can result in poor sexual satisfaction for both the patient and her partner as well as a variety of other issues, including the inability to use tampons effectively. Vaginoplasty is a fantastic solution for achieving a tighter vagina and relieving frustrating and embarrassing symptoms.
How is vaginoplasty performed?
Vaginoplasty in Dallas, TX is performed by Dr. Huertas in a fully accredited surgical facility with the use of general anesthesia. The procedure, which may take about 1 – 2 hours, involves several incisions that allow Dr. Huertas to tighten the muscle tissue, remove excess vaginal lining, and reduce the size of the vaginal opening, resulting in a more appealing shape and enhanced function. At the conclusion of the case, the incisions will be closed with sutures. Dr. Huertas understands the desire to minimize visible scarring and takes great care to place the small vaginoplasty incisions in areas where they are easily concealed within the natural lines and contours of the body.
Can I have another baby after vaginal rejuvenation surgery?
There is no inherent risk in getting pregnant after vaginoplasty, nor will the procedure hinder your ability to get pregnant. However, it is important for patients to understand that future pregnancy and childbirth after vaginoplasty can re-stretch the vaginal muscles and tissues, significantly compromising your results. In many cases, women who go through pregnancy and childbirth after a vaginal rejuvenation procedure ultimately require revision surgery to restore their original results. If you are planning to become pregnant again in the future, it may be ideal to defer your vaginoplasty until after you have finished building your family. However, if your physical and psychological symptoms are compelling enough, you can certainly have vaginoplasty now and will likely be able to undergo a second or subsequent procedure after your next pregnancy.
How long does vaginal rejuvenation last?
The results of vaginoplasty can last for many, many years. The aging process will not stop, however, which can alter the appearance and function of your vagina over the years. In addition, future pregnancies, menopause, or other conditions may impact your vaginal rejuvenation results.
Is there an alternative to vaginoplasty?
