Vaginal Tightening is a procedure that aims to tighten up the vagina. This may be as a result of a vagina that’s become loose from childbirth or simple old age.
During this procedure, which is usually performed under a general anaesthetic, the stretched muscle at the back of the vagina is joined together and shortened with dissolvable stitches, and the unwanted skin is removed. This tightens vaginal muscles and surrounding soft tissues, by reducing excess vaginal lining. The scarring should be inside the vagina and not visible after the recovery period.
Most women recover from vaginal tightening surgery within 8 weeks however some women can experiencer complications such as:
- infection – which often needs treating by antibiotics.
- Injury to the bladder
- Injury to the rectum.
Injuries to both the bladder and or rectum can have very serious consequences and long lasting side effects.
