Vaginoplasty is a procedure that is applied to vagina for sagging and dilation problem. This procedure is performed with surgical intervention and it is treated within the scope of aesthetic surgery.
As a result of the procedure applied to the vaginal area, the tissues that have undergone sagging and enlargement are restored. The purpose of the procedure is to correct the look of the patient's genital area.
Due to birth or age-related deformations, various sagging of the vagina can be seen. The sagging is a natural process that occurs in every woman. For this reason, most women prefer to solve this problem and have vaginoplasty.
Vaginoplasty is a very simple operation. This operation, which does not have any major risks, is completed in less than an hour and the patient continues to her normal life in a very short time.
Surgery is performed under general anesthesia. Due to the fact that the operation is made in a sensitive area and contains sutures, doctors generally prefer to do general anesthesia. This makes the operation easier for both the patient and the doctor.
Vaginoplasty is performed in a short time. After surgery, the patient returns to her daily life in a short time. The techniques to be applied in the operation vary depending on the patient's condition.
During the operation, no tissue is removed from the vagina. Therefore, no scarring occurs after the operation. During surgery, different methods can be applied depending on your doctor’s preference. However, it is generally seen that sewing method is used.
The operation is completed by stitching the patient. The sutures used during vaginoplasty surgery disappear spontaneously. Therefore, it is not necessary to remove sutures or do any other procedure after the operation.
The operation is completed in 30 minutes on average. Although this process varies from person to person, situations where the operation time exceeds one hour is extremely rare. Due to the short duration of the operation, generally it is not necessary for the patient to stay in hospital. However, this situation may vary from person to person.
Things to consider after surgery
After the vaginoplasty operation, the surgical area should be kept clean and necessary care should be taken. Due to the stitching or similar procedures, movements that will force the area after the operation should be avoided. Two or three times a day, the surgical area should be cleaned with special products recommended by the doctor.
After the operation, the patient can return to normal life within the first 2-3 days. In this process, personal hygiene should be well taken care of and doctor's recommendations should be followed.
It is normal to see a vaginal discharge in the first two weeks. If the operation area is cleaned regularly, the healing process continues without any problems.
In 2 to 4 weeks the effects of surgery begin to disappear rapidly. After the doctor's examination, the patient may begin to have more severe physical activity.
After the 1st month, many activities such as stretching exercises and weight lifting can be performed. If adequate improvement is achieved, the patient may return to normal life under the supervision of the doctor.
Sexual intercourse is not recommended for the first 6 weeks after surgery.
