Has childbirth changed how you view sex? Have the physical changes your body underwent made you embarrassed to engage in intercourse? Have you lost your sexual prowess? Is sex just plain uncomfortable for you now? This doesn’t have to be a permanent change. There are viable ways around this.
You’d be surprised at how many other women are going through the same thing as you. Childbirth can cause the muscles in the vagina to loosen, but this is an easily remedied problem. Vaginoplasty and labiaplasty are both great options to tighten your vagina and give you your sexual confidence and desire back.
About vaginoplasty and labiplasty
Every woman’s body is different and every women’s childbirth experience was different. Different people recover differently so the procedures needed will vary from patient to patient. The removal of excess vaginal tissue tissue and the tightening of the remaining tissue is known as vaginoplasty. Labiaplasty is different in that it mends the shape of the labia both by reducing its size and altering the structure of the vaginal tissue.
Vaginoplasty and Labiaplasty Recovery
There is a recovery time after both vaginoplasty and labiaplasty. Each patient is different, but for both procedures, expect a full recovery to take a number of weeks. Recovery time and results vary from person to person, but for the most part, I can inform you of what to expect after your procedure. Here are some frequently asked questions regarding the vaginoplasty and labiaplasty recovery process:
- Will I be in a lot of pain?
- How long will I be in pain?
- Will my plastic surgeon prescribe any pain killers or medications?
- How long should I wait before engaging in sexual intercourse?
- Do I have to wait before using a tampon again?
- What should I expect when I have to go to pee in the days after my surgery?
- How long will I need to stay off my feet after my procedure?
