Vaginal rejuvenation surgery has become a great help in restoring sexual sensation for many women after childbirth. It helps to make the vagina and its cavity tighter by repairing the looseness that usually comes about from stretching and damage during childbirth. Labiaplasty, in which the outer lips of the vulva are restructured through traditional surgical techniques or lasers, can also be included in vaginal rejuvenation.
Vaginal rejuvenation is a serious medical procedure. Certain risks and complications are to be expected due to its invasive nature. These risks and complications can be reduced if the vaginal rejuvenation procedure is performed with lasers instead of traditional surgical methods.
Numerous risks and potential side effects arise during the recovery phase after the operation has been performed. These side effects can include: bleeding, bruising, infection, lost sensation, redness, and swelling.
Apart from infection, these side effects are rather common. Bruising, redness, and swelling should lessen as the healing process progresses. However, should any redness or swelling continue or arise unexpectedly after a period of absence, your doctor should be notified immediately.
Too much post-surgical bleeding or stitches that have pulled free before they should have been removed can also cause problems, and your doctor should be informed. Your doctor should also be informed immediately should indications of infection, such as extreme redness, pain, and/or discomfort at the location of the incision, fever, or abnormal discharges from the incisions develop.
In some cases, long-term problems may come about after vaginal rejuvenation. Among them are: long-term or permanent loss of feeling; painful or uncomfortable intercourse; unhappiness with the outcome of the surgical procedure; and acute infection or tissue necrosis.
The most common grievance concerning vaginal rejuvenation is disappointment with the result. This is typical with a good number of cosmetic surgery procedures, and can usually be dealt with through revision surgery. However, carefully and honestly communicating with your doctor before surgery, will more than likely produce the results you are after.
