Childbirth puts a lot of stress on the vagina, and many women experience a weakening of their vaginal muscles after having children. In addition, just like any other muscle in the body, the vaginal canal can weaken with age. This loosening of the vaginal muscles can lead to a decrease in sexual gratification.
Vaginoplasty, also frequently called vaginal rejuvenation, is a surgical procedure that helps to tighten vaginal muscles, and repair soft tissues that may have been damaged during childbirth, or other types of injury.
Whether due to childbirth or age, a weakening of the vaginal canal can have a detrimental effect on a woman’s sex life. Part of the enjoyment both partners feel during sexual intercourse is due to the friction created by penetration and movement against the vaginal walls. If the vaginal muscles are lax, friction is diminished, which also diminishes sexual gratification. This can lead to decreased sexual fulfillment, which can have a negative effect on an intimate relationship.
A vaginoplasty can help by addressing the root cause of this lack of gratification—the weakened vaginal muscles. By repairing the soft tissues of the vagina, and tightening the muscles along the canal, the diameter of the vagina can be reduced. This, in turn, can increase friction during intercourse, leading to a higher level of sexual gratification for both partners.
