"Awesome doctor. My other doctors recommended a hysterectomy for back trouble I was having, she examined me and discovered this was NOT the problem. She kept me from an unnecessary and painful surgery. Great doctor. When we discovered a REAL female problem I was having she did my surgery with care and confidence (even providing pictures). I recovered quickly and I would highly recommend her. Best doctor ever. Very caring and funny too. Her bedside manner puts you at ease and she inspires your confidence and trust in her."- G.O. / Google / Jun 06, 2019
Vaginal Tightening Ideal Candidates
If the skin and tissues of your labia or vagina are severely atrophied, then surgery is generally the only option you have to change it. You may be a candidate for this type of surgery because the skin and tissues are causing pain, irritation from friction, itchy skin, and discomfort. During physical exercise, movement, fitted clothes, or sexual intercourse, the pain may be unbearable. You may also be concern about the aesthetics of your vagina or labia. The shape and size can be altered with this surgery.
Vaginal Tightening Surgical Technique
Your initial consultation will be held in our Las Vegas or Henderson, NV office. Your surgery will actually take place in a local outpatient surgery center or hospital where your practitioner has medical privileges. General anesthesia will be used in your surgery. Labiaplasty will involve the excision of the atrophied skin and tissues of the labia. The labia will be sutured closed after the labiaplasty is finished. In a vaginoplasty, your practitioner will remove extra skin in the vaginal walls and will open up a section or "wedge" of the vagina to tighten the muscles that have atrophied, and then suture the skin back together.
Since a general anesthetic will be implemented, we require that you have a responsible person drive you home after your surgery. Your medical team will also send you on your way with aftercare instructions once you have been discharged by the doctor.
Vaginal Tightening Other Considerations
Taking a week off from work to recover from labiaplasty or vaginoplasty is likely the minimum number of days you will want to stay home after surgery to recuperate from the discomfort and swelling. Applying ice packs or cold compresses to the area should help minimize swelling and numb the area some. We do not recommend that you use tampons during your menstrual cycle or have sexual intercourse until it is approved by your practitioner. Many patients of Essential Women's Health Associates resume these activities about 4 – 6 weeks after the surgery. It may take up to six months to see your final surgical outcome. Keep in mind that your skin will still age after this surgery and will be impacted by childbirth, weight changes, hormones, menopause, and aging.
