Vaginoplasty (Vaginal Surgery)
What should you know about a vaginal surgery (vaginoplasty)? What happens during the first consultation?
Vaginal surgery belongs to the type of plastic corrections which are primarily justified by health problems. Due to personal bodily conditions or giving birth, the vagina may loosen which may influence the sexual life negatively and cause urinary retention problems. In the course of the vaginal rejuvenation the surgeon restores the tightness of the vagina wall by ceasing the prolapse on the front and back walls of the vagina.
In the course of the vaginal surgery there is an opportunity for correcting scars or incorrectly healed perineal ruptures. During the first consultation, after an examination, our gynecologist discusses the necessary procedure(s) with you. He explains to you the course of the vaginal rejuvenation, the risk factors, and shows you where your incisions will be located after the operation.
Preparing for the vaginal rejuvenation
Before the vaginal surgery you must go for a complete medical check-up. The reason for this is to find out whether you have any health problems that could have an influence on the vaginal surgery. All preliminary examinations are made at our Plastic Surgery Institute, saving you the pains of queuing and waiting in other health centers. In the course of the examination laboratory tests, and as occasion requires, other examinations (ECG, X-ray, vaginal ultrasound, etc.) are performed according to the suggestion of the gynecologist.
To facilitate the proper recovery, it is important that you do not smoke, because nicotine slows down the process of regeneration and harmfully influences the healing of the wound. In the days before the vaginal surgery you should eat light food, drink lots of fluids and take some vitamins (vitamin C, selenium, zinc). Two weeks before the vaginal surgery you should avoid the use of aspirin, ginko biloba and other naturopathic products.
The vaginal rejuvenation
Vaginal rejuvenation consists of two parts: the front and back wall vaginal surgeries. Taking into account the personal bodily conditions and the condition of the vagina, the plastic surgeon and the gynecologist of our institute decide together if a complete vaginal surgery is necessary or only a front or back vagina wall reconstruction will be enough. The most practical time for performing any genital surgery is 7-10 days after menstruation, this way the wounds can heal before the subsequent menstruation. The vaginal surgery performed under general anesthesia. Depending on the type of the surgery, the procedure takes around 1 hour.
The techniques of the vaginal surgery
The technique of the operation means the choice and localization of the necessary incisions. In the course of the front vaginal surgery lengthwise incisions are made, and then the mucous membrane under the urethra is preparated. After that, the surgeon supports and lifts the prolapsed urethra by special stitches (Stöckel and Z), and removes the redundant pieces of the vagina wall, this way narrowing the vagina. In the course of the back wall vaginal surgery a rhombus-shaped incision is made at the back of the vaginal entrance, and then the surgeon eliminates the superfluous vagina harness from the marked area. Finally, he unifies the muscles on both sides by deep stitches, narrowing the vagina.
Recovery and risks of vaginal surgery
In our Plastic Surgery Institute we aim to make the period after the vaginal surgery as convenient as possible for you. After the vaginal surgery you must spend one night in our institute. To achieve the perfect result and look we work with self-absorbing stitches, this way the scars heal a lot more aesthetically and we save you the possible inconveniences of the stitch removal. After the vaginal surgery you must pay close attention to the proper hygiene and the careful, cautious daily washing.
During the first two weeks of the recovery all demanding physical activities and sexual intercourse must be avoided. After 2 weeks you can gradually return to your previous lifestyle. In four weeks time you can start to do light exercises. Sunbathing, going to swimming pools, saunas and solariums as well as taking a sitting bath must be avoided for 2 months. After the vaginal surgery you have to attend control examinations on the 7th and 14th day, and the 6th and 12th week.
Before the vaginal surgery we aim to filter out the possible risk factors with preliminary examinations, but even so unpredictable complications may occur. Genital surgeries count as routine plastic surgery procedures and the chance for the occurrence of complications are extremely slight, but it cannot be excluded. Such complications can be the following: urinary difficulty, post bleeding, inflammation, however, these can be treated effectively.
