The physical traits of your genitals may correspond to sexual performance issues. A woman who had born children vaginally may find her vagina is too lax to maintain pleasurable sensation during intercourse.
Dissatisfaction with the appearance of your vulva may not only affect your sexual confidence but could also result in a less satisfying sex life. A Stamford cosmetic vaginal procedures doctor could improve the appearance of your most intimate parts and help restore your vagina to its younger state. You may benefit from consulting a knowledgeable medical professional about your options.
There are numerous types of cosmetic vaginal procedures in Stamford, each with its own area of focus. These procedures may address a wide variety of issues, and many women choose to have more than one done at the same time.
With aging or childbirth, the vagina may become lax, and that loss of tone can affect sexual feeling. In some women, the vagina becomes so lax they may no longer be able to use tampons during menstruation. A vaginoplasty could tighten the vagina and restore it to its pre-childbirth or younger state.
The labia—or the vulvar lips—consist of the larger labia majora and smaller labia minora. Overly large labia could make wearing tight clothes uncomfortable or unflattering, and they may also cause discomfort during exercise or intercourse. A labiaplasty may either make the labia symmetrical or reduces the size of a large labia minora for improved appearance and greater comfort.
The area between the anus and vaginal is called the perineum. A difficult childbirth could cause this area to tear, but women may also experience issues with bulges and scar tissue due to body weight, chronic constipation, and other problems. A perineoplasty repairs this area and tightens the vagina in the process.
The clitoral hood sits atop the clitoris. In some women, the clitoral hood is enlarged and interferes with sexual stimulation. Other women may want a more aesthetically appealing look when they opt for a clitoral hood reduction. This procedure is typically performed in conjunction with a labiaplasty to make the genitals as attractive as possible.
Cosmetic vaginal procedures in Stamford, which are done on an outpatient basis under general or local anesthesia, are typically safe. As with any surgery, there may be some relatively rare risks of infection, excessive bleeding, and hematoma.
While some bruising and swelling may be normal after these procedures, a person is recommended to call the doctor if serious pain develops or if a vaginal discharge with a foul odor appears. While the recuperation period for these operations may vary, patients must abstain from vaginal intercourse for at least six weeks after any of these operations until they are completely healed.
Pregnant women or nursing mothers are not recommended to undergo cosmetic vaginal rejuvenation, as these procedures may best be suited for women who have completed their families. While the pregnancy is not impossible after such operations, vaginal delivery may negate the purpose of these surgeries and they may require repeating after childbirth.
