After going through childbirth, you may notice that your vagina no longer looks or feels like it did before pregnancy. This is very common but can alter women’s confidence and sexual satisfaction. Vaginal rejuvenation after pregnancy can restore your vaginal tissues. Many women find that vaginal rejuvenation can make them feel comfortable and confident after pregnancy, making it a popular procedure at The Julian Institute of Plastic Surgery.
How Pregnancy and Childbirth Change the Vaginal Area
Changes to the vagina are natural after pregnancy. The most common differences that women notice after giving birth include:
- Wider, looser vaginal tissues
- Vaginal dryness
- Less sensation during sex
- Pain during sex
- Urinary incontinence (uncontrollable bladder leakage)
Restore the Vagina After Pregnancy
Vaginal rejuvenation can resolve the changes listed above. The procedures that fall under the umbrella of vaginal rejuvenation improve the tone and tightness of the vaginal tissues. As a result, women experience more sensation during intercourse, a reduction in urinary incontinence, and an improvement in the appearance of the vagina.
The procedures that can be included in vaginal rejuvenation include:
Labiaplasty can fix a stretched or enlarged labia minora after pregnancy and childbirth. This procedure improves women’s comfort, especially during intercourse and while exercising, along with their confidence in intimate settings.
- Labia majora reduction
The labia majora refers to the folds of skin that surround the vulva, and it can become larger after childbirth. Labia majora reduction can bring this area of the vagina back into proportion.
- Mons pubis reduction
The mons pubis is the area over the pubic bone, and it can bulge with the aging process. Women can opt for mons pubis reduction to gain a smooth and flattering silhouette.
- Internal vaginal wall tightening
This procedure involves excising a section of vaginal mucose and muscle, which tightens the internal vaginal wall for greater sensation during sex.
