When a woman gives birth or ages, her body undergoes a lot of changes. A vaginal muscle loosening is one such change. Many women opt to undergo surgery to reverse this process either for cosmetic or reconstructive purposes. The two types of genital surgeries performed on a woman for vaginal tightening purposes are vaginoplasty and labiaplasty. In addition, there are few other types of reconstructive and cosmetic vaginal surgeries that are available. Some cosmetic surgeries include: Genital-hymenoplasty, clitoris unhooding and G-spot amplification.
For further information on vaginoplasty or labiaplasty as vaginal tightening procedures, consult the doctors at Columbia Asia Hospital. We have a number of professional doctors who will guide you through the process of understanding and undergoing these procedures.
What’s the Difference Between Vaginoplasty & Labiaplasty?
Vaginoplasty is a procedure that involves surgically tightening the entire vagina from loosening post pregnancy or due to age.
Labiaplasty on the other hand is performed separately or in combination with vaginoplasty. It involves surgery on the labia of the vagina alone. The labia, consists of the labia major or labia minor (the outer and inner lips of the vagina). This surgery helps make the lips symmetrical by changing the size or shape of the labia.
Vaginal Tightening: Reconstructive or Cosmetic Purposes?
There are a number of reasons why women opt to undergo vaginal tightening surgeries. It is important to recognize whether these purposes are reconstructive or cosmetic in nature.
Reconstructive surgery is done with the purpose of improving a bodily function for a certain area. For example, birth defects in a baby girl can require reconstructive vaginoplasty or labiaplasty. This is so that she is able to have normal function of the urinary system, menstruation cycles, sexual pleasure and birthing as she grows.
Other functional issues that require reconstructive surgery include urinary incontinence and bladder control problems. This issue may cause an overactive bladder and releases urine when one laughs or coughs. It can also cause muscle spasms in the urinary system. Vaginal tightening through vaginoplasty or labiaplasty helps reconstruct the area to function correctly.
A cosmetic vaginal surgery on the other hand, is performed to alter a normal functional vagina. A lot of women in India might want to opt for a genital-hymenoplasty for example, due to societal pressures of being a virgin prior to being married. It is important you have open discussions and consultations with your doctors to ensure that you are making an informed decision.
Types of Cosmetic Vaginal Surgeries
Genital-Hymenoplasty: This procedure is done to restore the hymen to its original state. The hymen is a tissue that can tear either due to strenuous physical activity, use of tampons or sexual intercourse.
G-spot Amplification: Collagen in injected into the vaginal walls to increase sexual pleasure and stimulation in this procedure.
