Vaginoplasty in Cincinnati, Ohio
What is Vaginoplasty?
Also known as vaginal tightening or vaginal rejuvenation, Vaginoplasty is an elective surgical procedure to tighten the inner and outer muscles and structures of the vagina. Goal of Vaginoplasty is to enhance vaginal muscle tone, strength, and control. This is a procedure designed to improve sexual function, specifically by narrowing the diameter of the vagina. This result is a smaller, tighter opening AND vaginal canal.
Why do women desire a Vaginoplasty?
As we age, the tissue and muscles around our vagina become lax and the opening and canals become larger. As our male partners age, they often lose length and girth. This is called genital mismatch. Less friction during sex leads to decreased pleasure for us and our partner. Women with lax vaginal canals and gaping vaginal openings may also noticed vaginal flatus (expulsion of trapped air from the vagina during or after intercourse). Vaginoplasty encompassing the FULL LENGTH of the vagina, treats vaginal flatus and enhances sexual gratification for both men and women by increasing friction experienced during intercourse. The procedure restores the vaginal and it’s supporting structures to a more youthful, “pre-pregnancy” state
What it Treats
Lax vaginal canals
After the procedure you will be given a cocktail of medications to help control pain, promote soft bowel movements, etc. Expect to spend the first three to four days following the procedure on bed rest.
Most women require pain medication for 3 to 4 days. After this time, you may return to desk work, but recommend nothing in the vagina (intercourse, tampons, etc), no heavy lifting, no bathtubs/swimming pools for 6 to 8 weeks
How is Vaginoplasty different from tightening the Introitus?
When Dr. Brenner performs a Vaginoplasty, it encompasses tightening the full length of the vagina for complete vaginal rejuvenation. Plastic surgeons who have not had specific training in vaginal surgery, typically only tighten the first few centimeters of the introitus (or the opening). Dr. Brenner, a gynecologic surgeon who has performed vaginal surgeries for over 20 years, is able to offer full-length vaginal correction. Many plastic surgeons and general gynecologists perform a simple perineoplasty with excision of triangular pieces of vaginal and perineal skin and mistakenly label it as a Vaginoplasty. This will not give the vaginal tightness desired deeper into the vagina, thus will not give patients the full rejuvenation they desire.
Process & Results
Dr. Brenner utilizes the Ellman Surgitron, a unique instrument that has a cool tip, so thermal damage to the underlying tissue is able to be minimized or even eliminated. The Surgitron is unparalleled in its finesse and no-touch technique.
The Ellman Surgitron provides superior precision and cutting (compared to a scalpel), less thermal injury, thereby promoting faster and less painful healing. All sutures used in the Vaginoplasty are self-dissolvable and disappear within 6 weeks. The procedure takes approximately 2 hours.
The tightening is done in the entire length of the vagina and not merely the opening few centimeters. This is done under local anesthesia with some sedation. However, Dr. Brenner has refined the in-office vaginal rejuvenation surgery in Cincinnati OH so that it does not require an IV and is done under mild sedation and local anesthesia.
