All You Ever Wanted To Know About Vaginal Rejuvenation Surgery
Are you considering vaginal rejuvenation surgery to try to get your teenage vagina back? If so, then you have joined the growing number of women who may feel this is their last and only hope to getting tighter again down there. With ASPS (American Society of Plastic Surgery) reporting an increase in women getting vaginal rejuvenation procedures, this surgery is increasingly becoming a hot topic amongst women. While surgeons who are members of ASPS offer different vaginal surgical procedures, ASPS itself, however, doesn’t endorse vaginal rejuvenation surgery. This is why vaginal surgical procedures have become a subject of increasing controversy. There are numerous things that you need to know regarding this surgery so you can decide if it’s the best option for you.
What is vaginal rejuvenation surgery?
It’s an umbrella term used to refer to a wide array of vaginal surgeries that women can undergo to tighten up their vagina that has become loose or slack as a result of aging or childbirth. Below are some examples of vaginal rejuvenation surgical procedures:
- Vaginoplasty – A surgical procedure that is tailored at tightening up a loose vagina by trimming loose vaginal muscles and then stitching the vaginal tissue back together with the goal of heightening sexual response.
- Labiaplasty – A surgical procedure that is performed on a woman’s labia (the skin, or lips, surrounding a woman’s vagina). This procedure can be performed alone or it can be performed with a vaginoplasty. It alters both the size and shape of the labia, making them smaller and correcting the asymmetry between them.
- Clitoral Un-hooding – A surgical procedure that entails removing the tissue covering the clitoris.
- G-spot Amplification – Experts believe that the front wall of a woman’s vagina holds the erotic “G-spot”, which is a very sensitive stimulating area that is crucial to female orgasm and arousal. The G-spot amplification procedure is a surgical procedure that entails injecting collagen right into the front wall of the woman’s vagina in order to increase sexual pleasure.
- Hymenoplasty – The tissue covering the vaginal opening, commonly known as the hymen, normally breaks once a woman has intercourse for the first time. This procedure repairs the torn hymen in order to mimic the original virginal state that was there before the woman became sexually active.
Are there risks involved in vaginal rejuvenation surgery?
Women’s long-term complications and satisfaction rates from vaginal rejuvenation surgery varies from woman to woman. Some women report developing complications after undergoing a surgical procedure, while others report getting desirable results. But just like there are risks involved in any type of surgery, there are also risks that are involved in vaginal rejuvenation surgery. Below are a number of them:
- On-going pain – If the procedure is carried out by an inexperienced surgeon, it could result with internal wounds that could be very painful for a long period of time. Many women have reported on-going pain after surgery and needed to undergo another surgical procedure in order to have their internal wounds treated. There are also some women who complain of pain during intercourse after undergoing surgery.
- Permanent changes in sensation – An inexperienced surgeon can over-trim your loose vaginal muscles or have your vagina overly tightened. This can lead to permanent changes in sensation of your clitoris alongside other genital tissues, which can potentially interfere with your ability to enjoy sex or achieve an orgasm.
- Infection – Similar with any other surgical procedures, there is the risk of infection that is involved with vaginal rejuvenation surgery. This is especially the case if the surgical procedure is done using unsterilized equipment.
- Scarring – Many women experience scarring, swelling and/or bruising after surgery. In addition, you may experience some discomforts which may force you to refrain from engaging in intimate acts for several weeks.
What is the cost of vaginal rejuvenation surgery?
The cost varies from surgeon to surgeon and from one geographical location to the other. But considering that the surgical procedure is considered an elective, or optional, surgery, it means that insurance doesn’t cover the costs involved. However, many surgeons provide financing options to their patients. According to statistics released by ASPS, the average cost of vaginal rejuvenation surgery is approximately between $3,500 and $10,000.
Are there non-surgical options for vaginal tightening?
Some of the best non-surgical vaginal tightening methods that you can try include vaginal tightening exercises. The major benefit of exercises is that they target the loose vaginal muscles and further tone them as well. Exercises such as kegels are private and can be performed anywhere, anytime. But to get desirable results with vaginal tightening exercises for purposes of tightening your vagina, you need to do them frequently and consistently. Another non-surgical option that is safe and healthy for you are taking vaginal tightening pills. The great thing with pills are that they give the body the ingredients it needs to strengthen vaginal muscles, maintain vaginal muscle tone, and further keep the vagina rejuvenated and healthy. However, you should be wary of the ingredients contained in any pills prior to purchasing them. Some products like to advertise a mix of miscellaneous ingredients to try to make it sound like their product is the best and that it really works. Some ingredients can cause inflammation and damage to your genitals. If you are considering vaginal rejuvenation surgery, the best advice would be talking openly with your surgeon about your concerns regarding the surgical procedure and your expectations. But first, make sure you look at all your options before deciding on such a major, risky, and costly procedure. There are many other non-surgical options that you can try first than what we’ve gone over in this article. Moreover, the risks involved with the surgical procedure, especially when it is done by an inexperienced surgeon, can compromise the quality of your sex life forever! Now that would just be accomplishing the exact reverse of your goals! Do your homework and consult with your doctor to see what options are best for you.
