What are the reasons for having vaginoplasty?

We recommend vaginoplasty when the vagina has undergone changes that have resulted from aging or childbirth. Undesirable changes include reduced firmness of the outer labia and reduced padding of the vaginal walls and mucosa.

What does the procedure involve?

The procedure utilizes internal incisions to tighten the musculature, and in turn, increase contraction strength and control. This improves sexual satisfaction by increasing the amount of friction felt by both partners during intercourse.

Will the recovery process be hard?

The recovery process from vaginoplasty should be straightforward. The sutures used are dissolvable and recovery only takes a couple of weeks.

Is there anything to be embarrassed about?

Of course not! At Cosmedicare, we treat all of our interactions with our patients with the utmost sensitivity and confidentiality. It is important that you feel you can communicate your desire to us with honesty, as this is one of the main components in choosing the procedure that will give you the results you desire. We want your procedure to be a success.
