VaginoplastySt. Simons Island, GA

We offer patients a variety of treatment options to help with the physical changes that follow childbirth or aging. One such procedure is a vaginoplasty, which can help with the laxity of the vagina muscles. By meeting with Margaret MH Goodman, MD, FACOG, we can determine if this procedure is right for you. A vaginoplasty is a procedure that tightens the vaginal muscles after laxity occurs due to childbirth, aging or other issues.

The vaginoplasty procedure is available at Goodman Medical Spa in St. Simons Island and the surrounding area. Since each patient is unique, we will customize the treatment to their specific needs. In some cases, patients also found the vaginoplasty helped heighten their sexual response. With this treatment, our team can help women to enjoy their body without certain effects of aging having a negative impact on their life.

Benefits of a vaginoplasty

A vaginoplasty, also known as posterior colporrhaphy, involves tightening the muscles of the vagina after becoming loose naturally or through childbirth. Many women who experience vaginal laxity experience less sensation during intercourse and find it challenging to keep tampons in throughout the day. Fortunately, a vaginoplasty is an effective procedure. Benefits of this treatment include:

  • Tightened vaginal muscles
  • Increased control of vaginal muscles
  • Heightened sexual experiences
  • Improved self-confidence

Women who experience vaginal laxity may benefit from a vaginoplasty treatment procedure. Many of our patients report feeling more confident when with their significant other and may even find they have heightened sexual experiences overall. Vaginal laxity affects many women, but it does not have to be a permanent complication. Instead, be sure to consult with Margaret MH Goodman, MD, FACOG and the team here at Goodman Medical Spa to learn more about the benefits of the procedure.

When to consider vaginoplasty

Vaginal laxity is a common condition that many women experience at a certain period in life. While some women may feel embarrassed to talk about it, there is no reason to avoid treatment. We take the time to build a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere so patients can receive professional treatment for vaginal laxity.

With that said, vaginoplasty can be a great way to increase self-confidence and enjoy intercourse more. In general, any woman who is not happy with the tightness of their vaginal muscles should consider how vaginoplasty treatment might be beneficial. There are certain occasions in a woman’s life when the risk of vaginal laxity is higher, such as:

  • After childbirth
  • Congenital defects
  • Vaginal prolapse
  • Uterine prolapse
  • After vaginal trauma

Perhaps two of the more common reasons women seek vaginoplasty treatment is vaginal laxity that results from birth or a congenital defect. However, numerous issues might result in the choice to undergo a vaginoplasty procedure to tighten the vaginal muscles. Regardless of the reason, our team is here to help find an effective treatment.

How the process works

During an initial consultation at our medical spa, we can discuss the patient's reason for considering a vaginoplasty and determine whether or not this treatment is appropriate. We will take the time to go over any questions the patient has before we begin the treatment process. This way, the patient will not have any confusion going into the treatment.

During the procedure itself, we will ensure the patient does not feel any pain with anesthesia. Most methods require the use of general anesthesia, although the vaginoplasty might be possible with local anesthesia at the patient’s request. We will then tighten the vaginal walls, close the mucosal skin and reduce the amount of external skin for cosmetic purposes.

There is minimal discomfort following a vaginoplasty, such as a minor ache for several days after, during which it is encouraged if not mandatory to rest. We will also guide you through the recovery process and provide detailed aftercare instructions, which likely prohibits the use of a tampon or intercourse for a specified amount of time.
