Genital aesthetics for the genital area can be applied by using laser treatments and surgical methods. Because the wound recovery is fast in this area, it can be applied with the other aesthetic operations. Labiaplasty and vaginoplasty are the most frequently applied methods.
Women’s outer genital organs consist of the bony part under the belly called mons pubis, outer labia (labia major), inner labia (labia minor), the upper joint site of the labia minor (clitoris) and the membrane called hymen. The problems in the genital area are divided into three as those developed during and after birth and developmental ones.
Congenital problems may be outer or inner genital organ abnormalities, non-development or abnormal development. This may be noticed at the time or birth or may manifest itself with menstruation problems during puberty.
Developmental problems are overdevelopment or underdevelopment of the genital anatomy that was in a normal structure at the beginning and occur as a result of hormonal effects. This directly affects the psychology of person in puberty.
Hormonal effects that increase during pregnancy, removal of the hormonal effect during and after giving birth, birth trauma or surgical intervention called episiotomy lead to undesired views in the genital area. Furthermore, loss of elasticity and sagging occur in that region due to aging.
What is Vaginoplasty (Vagina Tightening Operation) as genital aesthetics?
Loosened vagina and vagina’s losing its elasticity may bring along sexual dissatisfaction and loss of sensitivity and feeling. Loss of feeling leads to the problem of not having orgasm. The genital aesthetics operations made for retightening the loosened vagina are called vaginoplasty.
Vaginoplasty operations provide people with both functional and aesthetic benefits and ensure satisfaction of the patient.
The main reason of this operation is to tighten loosened and widened vagina, increase vaginal tightness by ensuring vaginal narrowness and to increase pleasure during sexual intercourse for both men and women.
What are the Benefits of Vaginoplasty?
- Both the look and shape are improved, thanks to vaginal plastic procedures.
- Functions of the loosened vaginal muscles are taken into order.
- Tightness, resistance and tonus in the vaginal canal are improved.
- Vaginal canal tightness helps to increase pleasure for men and women.
How is vaginoplasty applied?
Vaginoplasty operation takes 45 minutes to 1 hour on average, under local anesthesia (regional anesthesia) or sedation (slight sleep). Because most of the sutures are in the lower region, they are not visible, and it is a pretty painless and risk-free operation. You can get back to your everyday routine 2 days after the operation. After this operation, no severe pain is experienced by patient. The pain can be eliminated with painkillers.
How is the post-vaginoplasty operation recovery process?
It is very important to pay attention to personal hygiene after vaginoplasty. Sutures must be dressed regularly, and prescribed medicines must be administered. Sutures are automatically removed after 15-20 days.
What is Labiaplasty as genital aesthetics?
Labiaplasty is the operation made for making the inner or outer labia smaller and removing sagging for genital aesthetics.
Inner labia are rich in sweat glands, and in some cases, it is easier for germs to reproduce there due to moisture. Infections may lead to pain and foul odor, and this negatively affects couples’ sexual life.
This operation is made, in case where the outer big and inner small labia are bigger than the normal. Outer labia are shaped as the continuation of the pubis, and 1/3 or 1/4 of the labia are visible when one is standing up, and covered in hair. A big part of the inner (small) labia are mucosal forms that cover clitoris hidden under the outer labia. These regions wrap around the vagina and have no hair. The most frequently experienced aesthetic problems are drooping down and empty inner labia when one stands up, having a mass look from the front or too apparent inner labia between the outer ones. Although these problems occur with aging and in the postpartum period, they can also be observed in young women.
How is labiaplasty operation realized?
Labiaplasty operation takes approximately 30-40 minutes, and can be realized under sedation (sedatives) or general anesthesia, depending on the mutual decision of the patient and physician. After labiaplasty, sitz bath with an antiseptic is recommended for almost 15 days. Sutures will be automatically removed within 3 weeks. Slight blood leakages may last for almost 1 week after the operation. One can get back to her sexual life 3 weeks thereafter.
What should one pay attention to after the labiaplasty operation?
- If the patient applies ice compress on the operation site for the first 48 hours after the operation, swelling and blood leakage reduce.
- For slight leakages, the patient may need to use hygienic pads for almost 1 week-10 days.
- For the first 10 days following the operation, the patient should do toilet cleaning with an antiseptic diluted with serum.
- One can have a shower after the next day, but it is recommended not to get a bath in the bathtub and to use a diluted antiseptic for cleaning the genital area.
- The person has to mind her nutrition during the 3 days preceding and 3 weeks following the operation and not to have constipation, because straining will stretch the genital area. This causes pain.
- The patient should not have a sexual intercourse for 3-4 weeks.
What is Pubisplasty as genital aesthetics?
Pubis is the region that is below the belly, bony, protruding and continues with outer labia, and is the only part that can be entirely seen from outside when one is standing up. While this region has a hard and tight look at young ages, it may droop down, get empty or become more protruding due to increased fat mass, with aging.
In pubisplasty, if there is a sagging, the pubic area must be taken upwards and excess skin must be removed. This genital aesthetics operation not only can be combined with abdominopasty, but also can be applied alone, if the person does not need abdomen tightening. The scar is like that of caesarian’s and remains underneath the underwear. If the pubis is empty, it may be decided to make a fat injection, after the tightening is made. Such an operation is generally made under general anesthesia, and if fat injection is added to the tightening operation, general anesthesia is more convenient for the patient’s comfort.
If the pubic region is very prominent (this can be seen in young people), the patient’s most important problem is the look when she wears trousers. In this case, liposuction to be applied to the pubic region will solve the problem to a high extent. This genital aesthetics operation can be applied under local anesthesia and sedation. With the effect of sedatives to be given to the vascular access, the patient does not remember the time of the procedure and the operation is completed without any pain or ache. The element to pose the biggest problem in pubisplasty is taking the region up more than required, which creates a look with big labia taken up. Therefore, the operation should be made by a specialist physician.
How is pubisplasty applied?
Puboplasty which is reduction of pubis peak is removal of fats in the vaginal region by making a surgical incision like the one made for caesarian operation, in case where that region is excessively fatty and thick. The methods used the most in the current technology are non-surgical laser lypolysis and liposuction.
Puboplasty operations are generally made by removing fats with the method liposuction. This way, it is aimed at making the region smaller and to give it a more beautiful look.
