Genital surgery can repair damage from childbirth or other procedures that have left the genital areas stretched or ripped. Though not visible, perceived abnormalities or irregularities in the genital area can cause women just as many confidence problems as more visible issues. Women with concerns about the appearance of their genitalia may avoid intimate situations altogether rather than face the embarrassment they feel. Genital surgery is very common and there is no need for any kind of awkwardness or concern.
The thick membranous layer of tissue surrounding the inside of the vagina entrance is called the hymen and allows the passage of menstrual blood. The hymen is often broken during the first experience of sexual intercourse; however other factors can tear it such as using a tampon, horse riding or bike riding. In some cultures, it is imperative that the hymen remains enacted as it is a sign of virginity. Sometimes marriages can be annulled if it is discovered that the hymen is torn. The operation to repair the hymen is simple and straightforward and involves using the tissue from the torn hymen to create very natural results.
Women choose to have their labia reduced for many different reasons. Sometimes the labia lose their shape over time and can also lose their elasticity. Childbirth can cause the labia to change shape or size. For some women it has been a problem they have lived with for many years. Enlarged labia can cause not only discomfort when wearing certain items of clothing, especially sportswear but can also affect some women’s sexual confidence. Labia surgery involves trimming or reshaping the labia so that the area appears more natural and balanced once the stitches have been removed. The stitches will dissolve and recovery normally takes around two weeks.
Vaginal tightening or a Vaginoplasty is often a procedure sought by women who have gone through childbirth and experience loosening and weakening of the vaginal muscles. A Vaginoplasty will tighten these muscles and also improve the sensation during sexual intercourse. The procedure involves removing the excess skin at the back of the vagina and joining the stretched muscles together with dissolvable stitches. The results are immediate and the scarring is internal. Full recovery requires two to three weeks.
