Loss of sensation with vaginoplasty
Any surgical procedure can result in some loss of sensation particularly in the incision itself. However, it is extremely unlikely that you will lose any significant sensation in any of the erogenous zones, namely the g-spot and clitoris with the commonly performed posterior repair.
Sensation Loss After Vaginal Rejuvenation Variable
From what you are describing with regards to your complaints, this is really more than a straightforward vaginal rejuvenation. Most vaginal rejuvenation involves tightening the opening to the vaginal canal by removing some excess tissue in the perineum ( the space between your vagina and rectum), and tightening the muscles there so that the opening is smaller. This is the most common complaint when someone comes in for this type of surgery,because this is where most women derive their tactile sensation from ( the clitoral/labial area), not the internal vaginal walls. When you are talking about the internal canal, this is a much more difficult procedure with regards to approach and healing, and has a higher risk, since now you are closer to internal structures, etc. Overall, the rates of sensation loss should be low - around 1%. I hope this helps.
Loss of sensation after vaginal rejuvenation
Risk factors for loss of sensation are: women who smoke, or women who are over the age of 50. These risks will increase the chance of this happening, although it still remains very low.
When interviewing surgeons, make sure you chose one who has specialized training in cosmetic vaginal surgeries, along with endless before and after photos and patient testimonials.
