Women may develop looseness of the vaginal wall after childbirth or with age. Tightening of the vagina may enhance sexual pleasure of the woman and her male partner, this procedure is called vaginal rejuvenation.
Vaginal childbirth is usually associated with an episiotomy or incision on the bottom of the vagina to enlarge the opening for passage of the baby. This is repaired shortly after the delivery, but the repair is often inadequate. The vaginal opening may still be large and loose, the distance between the vagina and anal opening is shortened, and the area is often unsightly. A perineoplasty closes the opening and lengthens the perineum (area between the vagina and anus), which helps to rejuvenate the appearance and tightness of the vaginal opening. It is often associated with internal vaginal tightening surgery with or without correction of urinary incontinence.
If you have any questions about vaginal rejuvenation please feel free to contact Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Gary Alter at his Manhattan, New York or Beverly Hills, California office.
