At first consultation : During consultation, the physician will help you determine what type of treatment is best for you to achieve your desired results. Make sure you express your concerns and expectations so that you can be mentally prepared for the procedure. Like other cosmetic surgical procedures, it is also recommended that you tell your physician of any health problems or medications you are taking since they may adversely affect the outcome of surgery.
Surgery will be scheduled around the patient’s menstrual cycle. This procedure will tone vaginal muscles. It will result in greater strength, contraction, and control. The patient is normally placed under either a local anaesthetic with sedation or general anaesthetic. Vaginal reconstruction typically takes about an hour, but may possibly last up to an hour and a half depending on whether the surgery is performed simultaneously with another type of genital refinement procedure, such as labioplasty (surgical reduction of the labia majora and labia minora) or hymenoplasty (restoring a broken hymen). Vaginal reconstruction incisions are made in the genital area to join the loose muscle in the back of the vagina together and shorten it, facilitating the tightening of vaginal muscles and tissue. The diameter of the vaginal opening is reduced by minimizing the amount of vaginal lining (mucosa). This contributes to vaginal tightening, and excess skin may be removed. Once this is completed, any incisions are closed with sutures . Scarring is entirely, or mainly, inside the vagina.
Instructions before surgery :
A physician will assess the patient during consultation to ensure they are in optimum health, both mentally and physically, for the surgery.
A routine blood, urine, and Pap test will be taken. This will ensure your body is ready for the procedure.
The physician should be informed of any prescribed or non-prescribed medications, supplements, or vitamins that are being taken.
Instructions after surgery :
Swelling, pain and discomfort will be lasting for about a week and is controlled with medication.
To fend off infection occurring in the areas of the incisions, antibiotics will also be prescribed.
Most patients are on their feet walking around comfortably just a few day after the procedure.
Therefore, it is typical that patients return to work within a week.
Exerting too much effort while defecating or lifting heavy objects can also adversely affect your healing.
