A growing number of women now consider vaginoplasty as one of the mainstream plastic surgery procedures to enhance their sexual aesthetics. A cosmetic surgeon with skill and experience in sexual aesthetic procedures will be able to successfully perform vaginoplasty to rejuvenate the labia and create an overall youthful vaginal appearance.
Dr. Paul McCluskey is a recognized expert in the field of sexual aesthetic procedures for women. He performs a wide range of procedures with a very high patient satisfaction rate. Sagacious and hardworking plastic surgeon Dr. McCluskey provides vaginoplasty to patients in Atlanta, Buckhead, Georgia, and surrounding locations.
Vaginoplasty is typically designed to sculpt the outer structures of the vagina to restore a more aesthetically appealing and younger looking vagina.
The cosmetic surgeon will focus on correcting the vaginal lip by reducing or reshaping the irregular or elongated labia. Vaginoplasty may include reshaping of the labia majora or the outer lips of the vulva, or labia minora or the inner lips of the vulva, or both.
Sometimes the tightening of the vaginal muscles may also be performed to rejuvenate the vagina. The surgeon may correct any anomalies around the vaginal opening and tighten the vaginal tissue to improve sexual gratification. Women who are bothered by weak vaginal muscles or stretched vaginal tissue following childbirth, weight loss, aging or other factors may choose vaginoplasty.
The procedure can significantly enhance the contours of the tissue around the sensitive vaginal area. However, it is important to select the right surgeon for this niche surgery.
A percipient and proven surgeon can perform vaginoplasty as an outpatient procedure, and complete it within one to two hours. Dedicated plastic surgeon Dr. McCluskey receives patients from Atlanta, Buckhead, Georgia, and other areas in this region of The Peach State for vaginoplasty.
Benefits of Vaginoplasty
Some of the key benefits of vaginoplasty may include:
- Enhanced contours of the labia and vulva
- Tightening of weak vaginal muscles
- Reduction of mons pubis after menopause
- Physical comfort while wearing certain types of clothing
- Increase in sexual satisfaction in some cases
- Improved self-esteem and self-image
Vaginoplasty can be performed using local anesthesia and IV sedation, but in a few cases, general anesthesia may be required. Following anesthesia, the surgeon will place tiny incisions along the labia in pre-determined locations. Through the incisions, the surgeon will remove excess tissue, smooth the edges of the labia minora as required, and tighten the underlying loose vaginal muscles.
After the procedure, the surgeon will close the incisions with removable or dissolvable sutures. Vaginoplasty may not only improve physical aesthetics, but if performed correctly, it may even enhance sexual sensitivity in some cases due to improved access to the clitoris.
Mild soreness and discomfort in the incision sites will occur in the first few days, which can be managed with prescription pain medications. Most patients can resume their normal routine or return to work in less than a week after vaginoplasty. The surgeon will instruct them to avoid sexual intercourse for at least a month. Swelling in the incision areas will gradually dissipate over two to three months.
