Vaginal reconstruction in Park City designed to improve function
In recent years, more women have begun to hear the term “vaginal rejuvenation” more frequently. The very term “rejuvenation” lends to the idea that vaginal reconstruction surgery, as performed by Park City Urogynecologist Sanjay Gandhi, is more of a cosmetic procedure. In essence, there are several benefits that a woman may experience after undergoing this very specific procedure. It is important to understand, however, that the results achieved may vary from person to person.
Why have vaginal reconstruction?
A woman’s body will inherently change through the experience of pregnancy and childbirth. The greater the number of births, the more elasticity may be lost in the walls of the vagina. Though women are recommended to employ the proper use of Kegel exercises on a regular basis, there are instances in which the vagina cannot be sufficiently tightened through non-surgical means.
A loss of elasticity in the vaginal opening and vaginal walls may by very mild, or may also have an impact on the overall strength of the muscles located on the pelvic floor. A woman with loose muscles may find that her sexual experience is altered. Additionally, she may be impacted on a functional level to a degree that impacts her overall quality of life. Some of the issues that may stem from loosening of the pelvic floor muscles include:
- Urinary incontinence
- Fecal incontinence
- Release of stool or urine during intercourse
- Pelvic organ prolapse
These are just a few of the effects that may stem from weakened vaginal muscles.
What is vaginal reconstruction?
In the vaginal reconstruction procedure, your expert physician may manually tighten internal muscles and remove excess tissue in the lining of the vagina. Vaginal tightening may also involve the reduction of the vaginal opening itself. Every woman is different in her needs for reconstruction and the procedure performed is based on findings of the consultation and examination.
