What happens when I have surgery?

If you are a smoker, or take aspirin or any other medication, your Cosmetic Surgeon will wish to discuss this with you at your consultation. Your Cosmetic Surgeon will advise you when you are to discontinue and/or resume these activities.

THE DAY OF YOUR VAGINAL RESHAPING AND TIGHTENING SURGERY

The surgery is carried out as a day case, either under general anaesthetic or local anaesthetic with sedation. Women may experience some mild discomfort and swelling, which usually disappears completely after one - two weeks. After the procedure you will wear a panty liner. The sutures/stitches dissolve so there is no need for physical removal.

GOING HOME AFTER YOUR VAGINAL RESHAPING AND TIGHTENING

Depending on the operation you choose, your Cosmetic Surgeon will advise you as to when you can commence exercise and sexual intercourse. Recovery is quite rapid - a week after surgery you should be able to return to work. It is very important that you attend the appointments that have been made for you to care for your wounds and see your Cosmetic Surgeon post-operatively.

You will have your own personal Nurse Counsellor both before and after your procedure to support you and answer any questions you may have.

RECOVERY FROM VAGINAL RESHAPING AND TIGHTENING SURGERY

Recovery from each different type of cosmetic gynaecology is different and your surgeon will advise you on what to expect during and after the procedure. Vaginoplasty surgery is usually carried out as a day case so you will not usually have to stay in hospital overnight. It will be performed either under local anaesthetic with sedation or under general anaesthetic and dissolvable stitches will be used so there will be no need to have them removed.

It is completely normal to experience mild discomfort and some swelling after the surgery but the area should return to normal one to two weeks after surgery. Your surgeon will advise you on when you can return to work (usually after seven days) and when you can have sexual intercourse and start exercising again. Follow-up appointments are really important so that your surgeon can ensure that everything is healing as it should be. It is during these appointments that the surgeon will be able to judge when you will be fit to return to all normal daily activities.
