Vagina Aesthetics / Vagina Tightening (Vaginoplasty Operations)

The vagina may deform due to normal births or over time with age. This deformation causes aesthetic concerns in women as well as functional disorders such as urinary incontinence, uterine and bowel sagging.

These enlargements that occur in the vagina over time may lead to sexual unwillingness and couples' cooling.Also, sounding from the vagina during intercourse is an issue that disturbs many couples.

In the vaginoplasty operations performed to serve this group of patients, the vagina that is deformed is narrowed under an operation that takes 30-45 minutes under general or local anesthesia. The patient can return to his daily life after 2-3 days and to his sexual life after 3-4 weeks.

Permanent damage in the vagina structure due to the episiotomy incision we encounter after normal birth causes vaginal dilation and relaxation. This situation gradually becomes a problem for both couples in sexual intercourse. During sexual intercourse, pain provides a basis for decreased sexual satisfaction and decreased frequency of sexual intercourse. Over time, the self-confidence of the woman decreases and sexual unwillingness develops.

In recent years, this relationship between sexual life and vagina aesthetics causes women to resort to vaginal aesthetic (vaginoplasty or vagina contraction) operations more frequently. It improves the psychological anxiety of women with vaginal aesthetic operations, which is becoming more and more common every day, and increases their self-confidence and eliminates their unhappiness in their sexual life.

With the proliferation of vagina aesthetic operations (Vaginoplasty), many women are provided with aesthetic solutions to their hidden problems and their self-confidence is provided. With these operations, not only visual defects but also functional deficiencies are fulfilled, and psychological disorders are corrected while the quality of life of the patients is improved.

Who Can Have Vaginal Tightening (Vaginoplasty) Operations?

We can examine vaginal tightening (Vaginoplasty) operations in two groups: Patients who apply for first group operations generally have vaginal deformations at a young age and due to improper episiotomy incisions. Sexual and aesthetic problems are at the forefront. In the second group, there are patients who are admitted with functional disorders such as urinary incontinence, uterine and bowel sagging rather than aesthetic concerns. These patients often ignore their problems and postpone consultation because they are embarrassed to share these situations. Most of them have sexual problems. Region

Why Is There Dilalation And Loosening Occurs for Vagina?

In women with a large number of normal births, abortion or gynecological interventional procedures, and large babybearing history, we often encounter complaints of enlargement and relaxation in the vagina. Uncontrolled and prolonged deliveries, scar tissue of birth sutures can cause permanent enlargement and painful intercourse in the vagina. These enlargements in the vagina after a while lead to a decrease in sexual satisfaction and increasing sexual reluctance and other sexual pathologies during the coexistence of the spouses. During the sexual intercourse and daily activities, “sound from the vagina” often causes patients to feel bad against their spouses and lose their self-confidence. In general, they express this situation as "Although my wife tells me that she is not disturbed, I am very embarrassed and postpone having sexual intercourse".

We achieve high patient satisfaction with Vaginal tightening (Vaginoplasty) operations in patients with such complaints.

How is vagina thightening (vaginoplasty) operation performed?

For these types of operations, local or general anesthesia can be preferred. General anesthesia can also be applied according to the patient's preference. Vaginoplasty operation takes approximately 30-45 minutes. In general, the operation is planned at the end of menstruation and information about personal hygiene is given after the operation. It is recommended that patients do not have sexual intercourse on average 3-4 weeks after the operation.

What is the Recovery Process After Vaginoplasty (Vaginal Tightening Operation)?

You can stay overnight in the hospital after vaginoplasty. You can return to daily life 5 to 7 days after surgery. What is important in this period is the need to pay attention to the cleanliness of the region. Another issue to be considered after vaginoplasty is that activities such as yoga, etc., which are performed by separating the legs, are interrupted for a while.

When Does Sexuality Begin After Vaginoplasty (Vaginal Tightening Operation)?
After four weeks after vaginoplasty, you can start sexual activity with your doctor's check approval. In the first few relationships, you can try the relationship using slower and lubricant to adapt to the vagina structure in the new formation. Over time, you will get used to this new structure and observe an increase in orgasm.
