Weighing vaginal tightening surgery cost against benefits experienced after treatment in the Woodstock area

A woman may not take much notice of her vaginal health until function is somehow impacted. Just as time, age, and other factors affect general health, these factors may also alter the overall structural integrity of vaginal tissues. When this occurs, a woman quickly realizes that the vaginal area is responsible for much more than reproduction. Depending on the extent of weakening that occurs in the tissues in and around the vagina, a woman may notice that her entire sense of wellbeing suffers.

Vaginal tightening surgery is not only a very real option for physical and emotional rejuvenation, this procedure provides a cost effective option for the achievement of these goals. We are pleased to hear how vaginal reconstruction changes the lives of our patients from Woodstock, Crystal Lake, Park City, and other areas around Chicago.

A single solution to multiple problems

One of the primary factors that leads to loosening of vaginal tissue is childbirth. Unlike any other experience, vaginal birth places a great amount of stress on vessels and muscles from the uterus all the way to the vaginal opening. The resulting effect of this enormous stress could be stretching that does not recover with time. “Looseness” may be evident in the development of stress urinary incontinence.

Stress urinary incontinence is the involuntary release of urine. This may occur during sexual intercourse or during physical activity such as jogging or dancing. Depending on the severity of vaginal weakening, leakage may occur just walking across the room or laughing. Vaginal tightening allows a woman greater control over pelvic muscle contractions and, thus, possibly control over the release of urine.

In addition to incontinence, the woman whose vaginal muscles have atrophied may also notice that sexual pleasure is more difficult to achieve. In order for sexual intercourse to be satisfying, a certain amount of friction must be reached. When vaginal muscles are weak, this friction decreases. The lack of stimulation may cause physical and emotional challenges for both partners.

The concerns that natural arise with the weakening of vaginal tissues can be resolved with vaginal tightening treatment designed by your experienced urogynecologist, Dr. Sanjay Gandhi. Contact the Partners in Pelvic Health office nearest you for your consultation.
