Vaginal plastic surgery, are there risks
Vaginal plastic surgery, are there risks
In recent years, many women have accepted various cosmetic procedures, including cosmetic procedures. The risks of these operations
The demand for vaginoplasty, which usually aims to reduce the labia, continues to increase worldwide. The increased demand for vaginoplasty appears to stem from women's increased viewing of websites and television programs about vaginoplasty, which has increased their awareness of the area of the sexual organ and the shape it appears - or "should" appear in.
What is vaginoplasty and why is it performed?
Vaginoplasty is a generic name that includes several types of operations:
- Labioplasty labia surgery for the purpose of repairing asymmetry, reducing the labia or removing excess skin near the vagina
- Vaginal opening reduction - vaginal narrowing - (perineorraphy)
- Vaginal opening enlargement operation (Fenton’s operation)
- Operation to reduce all the vagina (vagionoplasty)
Vaginal beauty after childbirth
The reasons why most women have vaginal surgery stem from changes in the building and expansion of the vagina after childbirth, and from a specific building of the vagina or labia that causes problems when having sex or discomfort when performing other activities. In recent years, the number of women interested in performing vaginoplasty is increasing, especially in the Western world.
Usually after repeated births, the vaginal muscles become relaxed, which can lead to a feeling of expansion in the vaginal area, and a lack of satisfaction during intercourse on both sides. In this case, it may be necessary for women to resort to vaginal stenosis operations, in order to preserve and enjoy married life, and to increase women's self-confidence. There are many vaginal stenosis operations that aim to increase the strength of the vaginal muscles, tighten them, support the supporting tissues, and get rid of excess lining. Below we will talk about the narrowing of the vagina and its operations.
Narrowing of the vagina
With the development of the world of Medicine, Special Operations have been created to narrow the vagina, in order to solve several problems, the most famous of which are enlargements and relaxation of the vaginal wall, resulting from repeated births or in the postmenopausal period as a result of a decrease in the level of estrogen in the body, which leads to weakness of the supporting tissues of the pelvic area and the vagina.
Vaginal plastic surgery
What symptoms a woman may need to treat with a vaginal stenosis?
- Discomfort during intercourse as a result of a feeling of vaginal expansion.
- Pain in the lower back.
- Inability to control urine (urinary incontinence).
- Feeling of heaviness and swelling in the vaginal area.
Laser vaginal narrowing operation
With the development of Science and technology and its integration into the world of Cosmetology, we have the use of lasers in vaginal stenosis operations, and in this process the focus is on the narrowing of the vagina by thermal heating (heating) of the layers of internal tissues of the vagina and its constituent fibers such as Colgin, thus inducing the tissues of allysteine and Colgin to shrink and re-tighten, and stimulate them to continuous and long-term regeneration. This operation is usually done in a gynecologist's office, and its duration does not exceed 10 to 15 minutes, where the patient does not feel pain, does not need anesthesia, and the results are very positive, and over the long term, and can treat other medical problems such as: urinary incontinence, vaginal dryness, and postnatal relaxation.
Vaginoplasty: unnecessary and even dangerous fashion
Often the facelift of the vagina is not necessary, as recently published the results of a pilot study on the theme of facelift vagina in the journal British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology. The study, conducted at the Institute of women's health at University College London, was conducted as a complement to the work of researchers from the same university who examined previous studies on vaginal plastic surgery and found that very little research has been done on the long-term side effects of such operations.
The study involved 33 women who wanted to have labia surgery. The average age of the women was 23, with the youngest being 11. The researchers examined the vagina in these women, and found that the size of the labia was within the normal range in all women. Only three of them showed significant asymmetry that could justify such surgery. Despite the conclusions that emerged from the tests, 40% of women were interested in having this surgery - for the purpose of "improving the appearance of their vagina".
What drives women and girls, and sometimes even young girls, to have vaginal plastic surgery Some women claim that the building and size of the labia prevent them from wearing tight clothes and cycling. Others say they are embarrassed to expose their genitals in front of their husbands. Previous studies have suggested that dissatisfaction with the appearance of the vagina is actually one of the reasons for performing vaginal plastic surgery, but in addition to other reasons are lack of self-confidence and sometimes also problems with intercourse.
Low level of self-confidence may lead women to have vaginoplasty!
In the UK, where the study was conducted, the number of women who perform vaginoplasty annually is unknown, perhaps because most of these operations are done in the private sector. However, last year the UK's National Health Service recorded a 70% rise in the number of vaginal plastic surgeries performed in this country. There have been 2,000 such cosmetic procedures performed within the UK National Health Service and it is estimated that thousands of these surgeries are performed in the private sector.
Side effects and possible risks
Researchers claim that advertisements for vaginal plastic surgeries provide a quick and easy answer to women's lack of self-confidence regarding the appearance of their vagina. But what causes this state of self - doubt is precisely the form in which these ads, as well as porn films and TV series, set unrealistic standards for what the vagina is supposed to be-uniform in all women and with a smooth and boyish appearance.
Dr Sarah Creighton, who led the research team, claims that in the absence of evidence for the medical necessity of surgery, vaginoplasty is not an inch different from surgeries performed in different cultures that aim to cause genital abnormalities. The latter is banned in Britain. Moreover, vaginoplasty can cause the same side effects that occur as a result of operations aimed at mutilating the genital organ.
Possible side effects of vaginal plastic surgery include:
- Damage to the nerves in the vaginal area, which may reduce sensitivity in this area resulting in impaired pleasure from sex.
- Complications during childbirth such as ruptures and bleeding. In women who have undergone surgery to remove the clitoris (FGM), a common phenomenon in some societies, it has been found that the procedure has sometimes resulted in the death of the child.
To which side it is preferable to go when you want to perform vaginal plastic surgery
In contrast, private surgeons claim that this cosmetic procedure has been performed for many years and when performed correctly, vaginoplasty poses no health risks. However, in cases where women want to have vaginoplasty for reasons that are not medically necessary, it is recommended that they also go for psychological counseling before going to the surgeon. Perhaps understanding the motivations that encourage the desire to do this surgery can help solve the problem through therapy and enhance self-confidence.
Researchers say more research needs to be done on the topic of vaginal plastic surgeries. This is to deepen our understanding of the psychological motivations behind these women's decision to damage the sensitive tissues that contribute to sexual enjoyment.
