What is Vaginoplasty?

Vaginoplasty, also known as vaginal rejuvenation, is a surgical procedure that involves reshaping or reconstructing the vagina. It can be performed for a variety of reasons, such as improving muscle tone and function of the vaginal muscles, narrowing the vaginal opening, or reducing excess vaginal skin. Attelia Health Tour offers several different vaginoplasty procedures, including tightening vaginal walls, correcting uterine prolapse and repairing damage caused by medical conditions such as cancer. These procedures can be performed for both cosmetic and medical reasons and are typically performed by an experienced plastic surgeon or gynaecologist.

For whom is this treatment suitable?

Vaginoplasty is typically suitable for people who have experienced laxity or discomfort in their vagina due to childbirth, ageing or other factors, or who have had damage to their vagina due to medical conditions such as cancer. It may also be suitable for people who are unhappy with the appearance or function of their vagina and are considering the procedure for cosmetic reasons.

You may be a candidate for vaginoplasty if you are an individual who wants to improve your self-esteem and self-confidence, or if you experience stress incontinence (accidental urinary incontinence) during coughing, sneezing, laughing, exercising or sexual intercourse.

It is important to note that pregnant women are not suitable candidates for vaginoplasty. Many women prefer to undergo this procedure after childbirth and are usually advised to wait at least one year after giving birth before considering this type of surgery. However, the optimal timing for vaginoplasty after childbirth can be discussed with a competent medical professional during a consultation.

How long does the procedure take?

The duration of a vaginoplasty procedure can vary depending on the specific type of procedure performed and the patient. Some vaginoplasty procedures can be completed in as little as one hour, while others may take several hours.

In general, most vaginoplasty procedures are performed on an outpatient basis, which means that the patient can go home the same day as the procedure. However, some people may need to stay in hospital for a short period of time for observation or if complications arise.

What does the treatment involve?

The specific details of the vaginoplasty procedure may vary depending on the type of procedure performed and the purpose of the treatment. However, the vaginoplasty procedure may generally include the following steps:

Anaesthesia: Before the procedure begins, the patient will be given a local or general anaesthetic to numb the area and reduce discomfort.

Incision: The surgeon will make an incision in the vaginal area to access the underlying tissue and muscles.

Reshaping: After the procedure, the patient will be given instructions regarding postoperative care, including how to care for the incision site and when to return for follow-up appointments.

Recovery: The surgeon will make an incision in the vaginal area to access the underlying tissue and muscles.

It is important to note that the recovery process after vaginoplasty can vary depending on the individual and the specific type of procedure performed. It is important to follow the instructions given by your medical team to ensure a smooth and successful recovery.

How should you prepare for the operation?

There are several steps people considering vaginoplasty can take to prepare for surgery:

Follow your doctor's instructions: Your doctor will give you specific instructions on how to prepare for surgery, including any tests or procedures needed before surgery. It is important to follow these instructions carefully to ensure the best possible outcome.

Stop taking certain medications: Your doctor may ask you to stop taking certain medicines in the days or weeks before surgery. These may include blood thinners, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and vitamin or herbal supplements.

Avoid smoking and alcohol: Smoking and alcohol can affect the healing process and increase the risk of complications. It is important to avoid these substances in the weeks before surgery.

Plan your transport and accommodation: VIP transport between your hotel and the clinic will be provided by Attelia Health Tour. If you would like us to plan not only the treatment but also your accommodation, you can take advantage of discounted accommodation benefits.

Pack a bag: It is a good idea to pack a bag with all the essentials you may need during your recovery, such as comfortable clothes, personal hygiene items and prescription medication.

By following these steps and working closely with the medical team at Attelia Health Tour, you can help your vaginoplasty procedure go as smoothly as possible.

How long is the recovery period?

The recovery time after vaginoplasty may vary from person to person and depends on the operation performed. In general, most people can return to work and normal activities a few weeks after surgery. It is important to follow the instructions of your medical team for the best recovery process.

During the recovery period, you may experience swelling, bruising and discomfort in the vaginal area. Your doctor may prescribe pain medication to help with this. You may also need to follow a specific post-operative care plan, which may include taking sitz baths, using ice packs and avoiding strenuous activities.

It is important to give your body time to heal and avoid activities that may cause further strain or damage to the area. Your doctor can provide more specific information about the recovery time for your individual case.

Is it possible to combine vaginoplasty with other surgical procedures?

Vaginoplasty can be performed alone or in combination with other procedures such as labiaplasty, which involves surgical reshaping of the outer or inner labia of the vagina.
