Vaginal Surgery After Pregnancy – Atlanta
Vaginal surgery has now become a commonplace procedure as more and more women are turning to their plastic surgeons to alter the size and shape of their vagina and surrounding areas. And why must they not? Everybody has the right to look and feel good at all times.
Many women suffer from physical discomfort due to the size or shape of their vagina and then there are others who are under constant mental agony because they are not happy with the aesthetics that alter mostly due to pregnancy or aging. Vaginal surgery is their chance at mental and physical comfort and an improved self image through labiaplasty or vaginal rejuvenation.
Distinguished surgeon Dr. Paul McCluskey, M.D., opened the Plastic Surgery Institute of Atlanta just to do that – provide women a professional, compassionate and personalized route to achieving better body image and self esteem.
What is labiaplasty?
Plastic surgery procedures done for altering the inner or outer labia (labia minora or labia majora) and the skin folds surrounding vulva are included under the umbrella term labiaplasty.
The inner labia often gets torn or stretched out due to age, childbirth or sometimes accidents. Additionally, women who are not happy with the size, shape or color of their labia may have the procedure done to alter its appearance and boost their self confidence.
Labiaplasty is a fairly standard cosmetic genital surgery procedure and involves surgically removing excess labial tissue to make the labia smaller and more symmetrical. Statistics from the Journal of Sexual Medicine’s 2008 study show that 37% of total women who underwent labiaplasty that year, did so for aesthetics alone. Another 31% chose to undergo labiaplasty for both functional and aesthetic reasons.
Later, the journal featured a review in 2011 where the overall satisfaction rate of women with the procedure went in the 90-95% range. This shows an increase in the number of women opting for this surgery.
What is vaginal rejuvenation?
Vaginal rejuvenation is essentially an aesthetic vaginal surgery procedure which includes firming up and reshaping the vaginal tissue for its youthful appearance. Vagina often turns slack or loose due to childbirth or aging. The surgery is also satisfying for women who face discomfort due to a large labia or those who wish to increase their sexual pleasure levels.
Vaginal rejuvenation tightens the vagina by surgically removing the excess vaginal lining. The encircling muscles and tissues are then tightened to restore youthful muscle tone and aesthetics of the vagina. Post the surgery, outcomes vary individually. However most women can return to sexual intercourse after seven days. Women who have had vaginal rejuvenation done report increased physical comfort in addition to improved mental health and self image.
Care should however be taken to have such vaginal reconstruction surgeries done at the hand of professional surgeons only. Dr. Paul McCluskey repeatedly suggests that surgeries done by professionals reduces complexities and the need for repair surgeries.
What is labiaplasty repair?
Botched up labiaplasty surgeries though uncommon when done by a well trusted professional, are still a possibility. The negative experience women face because of the mismanaged surgery is not limited to physical damage to the labia only. Such negative experiences also have psychological and sexual implications.
Normality can however be restored through labiaplasty repair. Dr. Paul McCluskey begins with conducting a proper evaluation of the aesthetic and functional abnormalities caused by the previous labiaplasty. Every single one of the abnormalities and deformities are then fixed using a range of plastic surgery techniques to help you look and feel good again.
