Intimate surgery encompasses a set of surgical techniques aimed at correcting functional or aesthetic problems in the female genital region. This type of surgery is becoming more and more popular around the world, with a growing demand from women. Intimate surgery is aimed at solving sagging problems, urine retention problems, lack of muscle tone in the vagina or greater amplitude due to childbirth or age, as well as asymmetries or other problems.
One of the best known surgical procedures of intimate surgery is vaginoplasty or vaginal rejuvenation , whose objective is to restore the tone lost by childbirth or aging to the vaginal muscles. This procedure also allows you to rebuild or change the appearance of the vagina, whether for aesthetic reasons or not, sometimes following certain trends. Likewise, vaginoplasty also encompasses sexual reassignment surgeries (changing male to female genitalia as a treatment for transsexuality).
This surgical intervention is suitable for women of any age, although it is mainly adult women who demand this type of operation. It is generally performed under local or regional anesthesia, without the need for prolonged hospitalization. It is a surgery that is not painful although it is annoying. The stitches that are normally used are resorbed, therefore, there is no need to remove them, thus avoiding the consequent discomfort. About a month after the intervention, the patient can resume her normal life.
Due to labor and the lack of firmness of the tissues, the vagina widens and the muscle tissues lose their firmness and tone, therefore, this surgical intervention is responsible for strengthening the muscles, reinforcing the fasciae, shaping and resecting the excess of vaginal mucosa, making the diameter of the vagina smaller.
This also influences the sexual activity of some women and also their partners by reducing the friction they feel during sexual intercourse.
In addition to the aesthetic point of view that we achieve with this operation and the recovery of sexual pleasure, this surgery is used for the reconstruction of the pelvic floor.
