Vaginoplasty, commonly referred to as “Posterior Colporrhaphy”, is the gold standard in improving laxity of the vaginal wall. It is a surgical procedure that reverses vagina laxity and essentially tightens the vagina. Vagina laxity is a common occurance in women after childbirth or weight loss.
Vaginoplasty involves surgically removing the posterior vaginal wall tissue, tightening the vagina. This leaves the patient with a more aesthetically pleasing vagina, and has been known to enhance sexual pleasure. Another option to achieve vaginal tightening is through heating the vaginal tissues with radiofrequency or laser (Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation).
You will be required to do bowel prep prior to procedure and surgery can be performed with local or general anesthesia in a surgical facility.
