As the perception of sex has changed from the past, more and more women are actively seeking vaginoplasty for satisfying and happy sex life.
A typical example is vaginoplasty, and a woman’s vagina may lose elasticity and expand due to repeated sexual intercourse, aging, and childbirth. For this reason, women who have conflicts between couples or suffer from depression seek posterior colporrhaphy to improve these problems.
Posterior colporrhaphy is a type of vaginoplasty. It is possible to narrow the vaginal muscles from the entrance to the inside by cutting and stitching the back wall of the drooping vagina.
For the Improvement not only for sexual problems, but also functional problems such as urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence, and uterine prolapse, anterior colporrhaphy which removes sagging vagina and then sutures the sagging vaginal wall is also performed. However, anterior colporrhaphy has a risk of damage the urethra, and the vagina becomes too narrow after surgery. For the anterior wall, TOT (Tension-Free Obturator Tape) surgery which raises the bladder and prevents sagging of the urethra is performed.
In terms of effectiveness, surgical methods such as posterior colporrhaphy are better, but non-surgical methods such as lasers or fillers can be used if there is not much experience in childbirth or if there are no functional problems.
‘Mona Lisa Touch’ and ‘Viveve’ are the representative lasers. These lasers narrow the vagina using the principle of damaging and regenerating tissue and stimulating fibroblasts to fill the skin. It is difficult to expect immediate effects after the procedure like surgical method, but it has the advantage of being natural and painless.
Fillers are injected into the inside of the vagina to increase volume to the vagina, so it makes vaginal reduction effect. If the filler is injected under the tissue where nerves are gathered, called the G-spot, the G-spot is stimulated, which increase the likelihood of orgasm. People understand that the good filler for face is hyaluronic acid fillers that are absorbed after a certain amount of time but the filler for vagina is different. Dr. Yoon Jung Lee, a founder of Ymiz Obstetrics and Gynecology Clinic, said, “For the vagina, the filler should be long-lasting, hard, and do not move well.
Vagina reduction surgery should be done carefully considering safety and delicacy although the surgery and procedure are simple. Dr. Yoon Jung Lee, a founder of Ymiz Obstetrics and Gynecology Clinic, emphasized, “Posterior colporrhaphy is theoretically simple. However, the sagging back wall has to be cut a suitable size, and if it is cut too much, it may cause atrophy or rather difficulty in intercourse, and if it remained too loose, the result may not be satisfactory. There are several nerves and vascular tissues around the vagina. Reckless surgeries and procedures can cause side effects, so surgery should be operated by surgeon who has a sufficient knowledge of anatomy.”
