Vagina Rejuvenation a frequently asked questions

What do mean when we say Vaginal Rejuvenation? It is also many times addressed as a vaginoplasty, but it is much more than that.

A Vaginal Rejuvenation restores and improves the functional and aesthetic aspect of the vagina, achieving a comprehensive internal and external improvement of the area. In the internal part, it will allow the muscles and tissues of the vagina to be adjusted so that the vagina muscle tone is improved, also reduction of its diameter will take place, which will help the woman contract more strongly during sexual intercourse, translating into increasing sexual gratification for both her and her partner. And when talking about the external part, it is possible to remove the excess skin from the labia minora, clitoris hood and perineal area, improving its appearance and when needed also its functionality.

How long does the surgery take and what type of anesthesia is used?

If the internal area is addressed the procedure is performed in the operating room, under general anesthesia and lasts about 90 minutes. If just the external part is addressed, also called vagina design, labiaplasty and/or hoodplasty, only local anesthesia is needed begin an in-office procedure that last no more than 60 minutes.

How is the recovery from a Vaginal rejuvenation / Vaginoplasty procedure? 

The recovery time will depend on whether your procedure was performed on the internal or external areas of the vagina, or both. Recovery time time goes between 2 to 6 weeks.

What can help for my recovery?

Keep rest the first days – The use of loose clothing is recommended, preferably skirts or dresses and only cotton-type underwear. – Follow all the recommendations of your doctor, as well as correctly take the medications and painkillers that have been prescribed. – No heavy lifting for 1 month after surgery. – Abstain from sexual intercourse for to 2 to 6 weeks, time varies according to the surgery plan.

When can I resume my sexual life and what will my first relationship be like after the procedure? After 2 – 6 weeks of the sexual intercourse can restart. Be creative while you cannot enjoy penetration.  Is normal that once sexual intercourse is reassumed you feel a little anxious, so I recommend you to start sexual intercourse while you being on top, so by doing so you can better control your first experience.
