Cosmetic Gynecology, especially vaginal tightening & reshaping (vaginoplasty)
surgery, has become increasingly popular over the last few years, particularly
with new mums as the vaginal muscles can be left loose and weak after
It is the surgical procedure which tightens the vaginal muscles, perineum
and surrounding tissues. This gives more tone, strength and control to
your vaginal muscles, enhancing your sensitivity and sexual experience.
The vaginal muscles may have lost tone as part of the aging process, which

sexual satisfaction for both yourself and your partner.
We appreciate that you may find talking about this subject embarrassing

significant experience in helping women to regain their confidence and
self-esteem through vaginoplasty.
When you book a consultation you’ll meet with a fully trained, female

maintain your privacy at all times and you’ll be under no obligation
to go ahead.

The stretched muscles is joined and shortened at the back of the vagina
with dissolvable stitches and any excess skin is removed. This tightens

your vagina to regain most of its pre-pregnancy tone.
After surgery you’ll be sore but should be able to walk comfortably
after a few days. We’d recommend taking a week off work to make
a full recovery, and after 2-3 weeks you should be able to feel the results
of your vaginal tightening.
You’ll have a post-op check-up to ensure that everything is healing
properly, and the surgeon will advise when you’re able to resume
