Due to the nature of these procedures, it is important to find a surgeon who is skilled, experienced, and certified by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. The surgeons at Nesmith Plastic Surgery Center fit the bill to provide you with the level of service you need. You may be interested in cosmetic vaginal surgery if:
Your vaginal structures have changed due to childbirth or aging
You feel pain while riding a bike or horse
You feel pain during sex
There are a variety of surgical procedures that are used according to your specific symptoms. Dr. Nesmith can perform surgeries such as labiaplasty, labia majora reduction, and clitoral hood reduction. Schedule a consultation to determine which cosmetic procedure fits your desired outcomes.
Vaginal rejuvenation has many benefits. For example, your vagina and surrounding muscles will tighten to their state when you were younger or before you went through childbirth. Following the procedure, you may find your swimsuit and underwear fit you better. Ultimately, you may experience an increase in the amount of self-confidence you have with a recontoured vagina.
Labiaplasty and other procedures
Each procedure will be different depending on the surgery you choose. With a labiaplasty surgery, Gainesville plastic surgeons will remove excess tissue in order to reduce the size of your labia minora (inner vaginal lips).
During a labia majora reduction surgery, Dr. Nesmith will hide incisions within the border of the labia while removing extra tissue and skin from the outer lips of the vulva. Similarly, clitoral hood reduction removes tissue that is currently covering the clitoris.
There are risks and side effects associated with any cosmetic surgery from tummy tucks to facelifts. Following a vaginal rejuvenation surgery, you may suffer from the following:
Hemorrhage or injury to your bladder
Bruising and swelling in the surgical area
Negative reaction to anesthesia
Change in sensation at the surgical site
Future surgeries to correct unsatisfactory results
Your plastic surgeon will go over in detail the procedure, expected results, and associated risks at your consultation.
Ideal candidates for surgery
These procedures are meant for women who have scarring which causes them discomfort due to previous genital surgeries. You may be an ideal plastic surgery candidate if your vaginal structures are sagging because of weight loss, childbirth or aging. However, this surgery is also an option if you want a more refined shape to your vulva and labia.
Recovery time after surgery
Post-surgery you will be able to return home but you should have a caregiver drive you. You will be put on bed rest for the rest of the day and will have to wait five days to seven days until you are allowed to return to work. There may be minor pain levels but you can minimize this with medication.
If drains were put in, you must care for them properly and wear compression garments. Further, you will not be able to engage in sexual activity for one month following this procedure. If you experience any signs of complications, that Dr. Nesmith will warn you about, it is vital that you notify him.
