Vaginal Tightening

Reconstructive vaginoplasty or vaginal rejuvenation are the terms commonly used to describe the surgical procedures performed for vaginal tightening.

It is also known as a designer vagina or virgin tightening surgery.

Here is detailed information about vaginal tightening treatment methods.

Can you have an operation to make your vagina tighter?

You can have an operation to tighten the vagina. The most effective method of vaginal tightening is surgical vaginoplasty.

Vaginal tightening surgery can be necessary for several reasons. Here is a summary of the indications of vaginoplasty:

  • Chilbirth travma and lacerations in the vagina,
  • Aging and menopausal changes,
  • Genetic reasons causing vaginal laxity in younger ages,
  • Decreased sensitivity during sexual intercourse.

Why is vaginoplasty performed?

Vaginoplasty may be performed for several reasons. Most commonly child birth, menopause and aging may contribute to vaginal laxity. The medical term used to describe the changes in the pelvic floor is pelvic relaxation. Pelvic muscles and supportive tissues may get weaker by aging.

In addition pregnancy and child birth may cause tears in the pelvic muscles and fascia leading to herniation of organs such as the bladder, intestines and rectum into the vagina. Some patients may be genetically more prone to such relaxation even at younger ages.

Thus reconstructive vaginoplasty is performed to reverse the changes caused by pelvic relaxation.

How is vaginoplasty performed?

Vaginoplasty procedure may be performed under sedation. Vaginoplasty is the procedure of tightening and narrowing the vagina by taking out some mucosal tissue, but more importantly by approximating and pulling of the levator ani muscles towards the midline.

It is completed with a perineoplasty, where the opening of the vagina is narrowed and the transverse perineal muscles are approximated in the midline. Absorbable sutures are used so that suture removal is not necessary.

If the patient has additional problems such as:

  • Stress urinary incontinence,
  • Fecal incontinence,
  • Vaginal vault prolapse,
  • Uterin prolapse,
  • They can also be repaired by additional surgical procedures during a vaginoplasty.

What is removed in vaginoplasty?

During vaginoplasty, loose vaginal mucosa is removed from the posterior vaginal wall (vaginal tissue adjacent to the rectum) with a triangular incision. If necessary, vaginal mucosal tissue may also be removed from the anterior vaginal wall (adjacent to the bladder).

Who performs vaginoplasty?

Vaginoplasty is performed by obstetricians and gynecologists who are specialized in urogynecology, genital esthetic surgery and pelvic floor repair.

Can vaginoplasty be performed with other gynecological operations?

Vaginoplasty can be combined with other gynecological procedures according to patient’s needs such as:

  • Labiaplasty,

  • Hysteropexy (uterin preservation),
  • Vaginal hysterectomy,
  • Stess incontinence surgery (vaginal sling procedures),
  • Fecal incontinence surgery.

Are there non surgical alternatives to vaginoplasty?

The non surgical alternatives to vaginoplasty are not as effective as surgery. They may be preferred in patients who are not eligible for surgery or for patients with mild symptoms. They aim to increase pelvic muscle strength.

These can be summarised as:

  • Kegel exercises,
  • Physical therapy to support kegel exercises,
  • Electrical stimulation of of levator ani muscle to increase its strength,
  • Laser treatment for vaginal tightening is a temporary, ineffective method compared to surgery.
