Because of the delicate nature of the subject, many women have unanswered questions about vaginal restorative surgery. Women get vaginal surgery for a variety of reasons ranging from the desire for a more youthful appearance, to the desire to decrease pain and discomfort.
Just as each woman is unique unto herself, each woman’s reasons for getting vagrancy surgery are unique in their own ways. Are you considering transforming your life and your body through vaginal restorative surgery? If so, then the simple guidelines below will answer some of your most important questions such as how to select a qualified and experienced surgeon, what vaginal restorative surgery entails, and what to expect in the days and weeks following your vaginal restorative surgery.
Vaginal Restorative Surgery
Vaginal restorative surgery is usually thought of as a cosmetic procedure, when in fact there may be numerous functional benefits. There are in fact numerous types of vaginal surgery available to modern women, vaginal restoration being just one type. For the most part, vaginal restorative surgeries such as vaginoplasty and perineoplasty focus on restoring tightening in the vaginal muscles in order to increase sexual pleasure. Clitoral hood reduction and labiaplasty restructure the vagina, increasing stimulation and reducing tissues that can cause pain and irritation. Surgeons can even perform hymenoplasty to restore a hymen that’s been ruptured due to injuries.
Finding an Experienced Labiaplasty Surgeon
Vaginal restorative surgery is a burgeoning field turning out hundreds of new “expert surgeons” every. But just because a particular plastic surgeon claims to have expertise in the area of vaginal surgery, that doesn’t mean they have the extent of experience you probably want. Presently there isn’t a formal post graduate certification process for plastic surgeons to become certified in the specialized area of vaginal restorative surgery. This means that a surgeon can take one of several paths towards becoming a labiaplasty “expert.” Some surgeons do nothing more extensive than taking a short lecture course.
Ideally, you will find a plastic surgeon whose training has been extensive and in-depth. When you meet with a plastic surgeon, ask them to explain their training in labiaplasty to you. Keep looking until you find a plastic surgeon that has been through in-depth post graduate training in vaginal restorative surgery.
Experience is also a major consideration when it comes to deciding on a plastic surgeon. While vaginal surgery is a relatively new field, there are plenty of plastic surgeons who have decided to make vaginal surgery their specialty. Choose a surgeon who specializes in vaginal surgery and who performs them regularly with optimal success rather than a surgeon who has only performed a handful or only performs a handful per year.
What Vaginal Restorative Surgery Involves
For years laser surgery offered the best technology for vagrancy surgeries. Laser surgery was a serious advancement over scalpel surgery as cutting could be more precise and less damaging. The major drawback to laser surgery is that the intense heat of the laser often leads to damaged skin, scarring, and pain and discomfort that can last for weeks post-surgery. Still, plenty of plastic surgeons still rely on laser methods to perform vaginal surgeries.
High frequency surgery is replacing laser surgery as the premium choice for vaginal restorative surgeries, though many surgeons have yet to catch on. High frequency surgery uses a radiowave emitted by a fine wire resulting in a cool tip. The cool tip provides the same preciseness of the laser beam, but without the excessive damage done to sensitive tissues. High frequency surgery reduces trauma to the skin and doesn’t cause inflammation or swelling.
What to Expect in the Days Following Vaginal Restorative Surgery
What you can expect to experience in the days following your vaginal rejuvenation surgery depends quite a bit on which type of method your plastic surgeon uses. If you go with a plastic surgeon that still relies on the laser, you can expect some swelling, inflammation, discomfort, and probably some pain that will require you to take pain killers. You might feel unable to move around a lot due to pain and swelling in the vaginal area.
On the other hand, should you select a surgeon who offers cutting edge high frequency technology you can expect very minimal swelling and some pain, but not as much as you would have if your vaginal restorative surgery had been performed with a laser.
