A 1-2 stitch vaginoplasty/vaginal tightening procedure??!

...You get what you pay for.  Any doctor that says that she or he can make you "more tight" with 1 or 2 stitches has no idea what they're doing.

If you don't do it right it won't work, or work for only a short while before breaking down and leaving you like you were before, only poorer.

Here is how it is supposed to be done, how master, experienced surgeons do it.  Anything less is substandard:
1. Removal of a sizable diamond-shaped wedge of vagina, vestibule, perineum, cleaning up all or tge fobrous scar tissue.
2. Placement of ~ 3-4 apporoximating heavy caliber delayed absorbable sutures into the sheaths of the "levator muscles of the pelvic floor (preferably under local anesthesia, as if you are conscious during surgery you can do a "Kegels" and your doc can better locate the exact right place to put sutures)
3. re-approximation of the tough fibrous layer, the "recto-vaginal fascia, as a second layer, a wrapping "blanket" over the levator muscles, with medium caliber sutures.
4.  Very accurate placement of 1-3 (usually 2) "crown sutures" deeply into the tissue of the vestibule to gather up and approximete the muscles and bulk of the "perineal body" to repair and elevate it, bulking the opening and changing the angle of penile vaginal thrust.
5. Careful cosmetic, "plastic" closure of all areas, re-building the opening to be as close as anatomically poossible to pre-childbirth parameters, with a small-caliber "plastic" suture line.

This is a lot more than "...a stitch or 2..."  And your surgeon should not call it quits there, but shephard you through a series of pelvic floor strengthening classes and/or supply you with and teach you how to use an electronic vaginal muscles strengthening device.

Our cost is $5750.  This includes the full surgery, all pre- and post-op visits, surgical suite, anesthesia, electronic muscle exercisor, appointment with physical therapist and much more..

Vaginal tightening


Vaginal tightening can be perormed. It is best for women who have had children via vagnial delivery and have stretched out their tissues. Patients will typically state that they feel that sex is not the same since childbirth. The surgery involves removal of excess mucosa with tightening of the underlying muscle and reduction in the diameter of the vaginal introitus (external opening of the vagina). I also sometimes perform fat injection into the side walls of the vagina if there is a great deal of vaginal laxity. The procedure takes around 1.5 hours and the cost with anesthesia and facility fee is around $5000-5500.

I Hope this answers some of your questions.

Vaginoplasty or vaginal rejuvenation is a procedure whereby the muscles around the vagina are tightened and the vaginal canal is reduced in size. It's designed make the vagina tighter and increase sensation during sexual intercourse. It is much more than putting one or 2 stitches in, it is a one to one and a half hour operation whereby all the layers of the vagina are repaired. We usually perform it under general anesthesia and the cost runs between $7-$9000, I hope that helps, good luck.

Vaginal Rejuvenation, also called Vaginoplasty and Vaginal Tightening

Dear Sylvia,

It is not possible to make a woman's vagina tighter with just a few stitches.  Some obstetrician/gynecologists offer to put in an extra stitch or two at delivery for the husband termed the Honeymoon stitch, but that really only addresses the skin (not even the muscles) at the vaginal opening and is not inside the canal.  These surgeries are not offered right after delivery because a woman's blood volume is almost double and there is a higher risk of bleeding.

The most common reasons for requesting vaginal rejuvenation are the sensations of being too wide or too loose, and too smooth, with reduced sensation for one or both partners, problems with gas-like noises and partner fall out during the act due to weak muscles at the opening.  Other symptoms include constipation, hemorrhoids, having to manually assist with going to the bathroom, tampons not staying in place, and urinary incontinence.  Childbirth, large weight gain and loss, chronic straining with constipation or heavy lifting, sexual abuse, anal intercourse and putting large objects in the vagina, among others are the causes of feeling too loose or too wide, and stretch the tissues inside the vagina.  The loss of vaginal ridges and too much vaginal secretions are the cause of feeling too smooth.

There are actually 7 Vaginal Rejuvenation surgeries, 2 treat the smooth sensation and 5 treat the wide or loose sensation.  The range of cost for these procedures is between $3000-$7,500 depending on your anatomy and desires.

I hope this information is helpful.

If It Sounds Too Good To Be True, It Probably Is...

My friend,

If a surgeon claims she/he can tighten the vagina with one or two stitches, they clearly don't know what they are doing and I would recommend that you turn around and walk away before you waste your time and money, and expose yourself to potential complications at the hands of an uneducated and unethical person. As many of my fine colleagues have reiterated, vaginal rejuvenation is an outpatient surgery which repairs the entire vaginal canal and vaginal opening in multiple layers, using up to a hundred stitches or more depending on the degree of relaxation. The cost will vary depending on location, anesthesia choice, whether or not there is also an insured procedure associated with your case, facility choice, among others, and in my experience typically runs between $5500-$9000. The most important thing is that you find an experienced surgeon who has performed hundreds to thousands of vaginal rejuvenation procedures who you feel comfortable with. Always do your research. Cheers!

Vaginoplasty for Effective Vaginal Tightening

Vaginoplasty is an excellent procedure for tightening the vagina which has become loosened. Childbirth is usually the cause of vaginal laxity, but women who've never had children or never had a vaginal delivery can also develop vaginal laxity. The procedure can be simple or complex depending on how much laxity is present and whether there has been any damage to the pelvic floor supports of the bladder, the uterus and the rectum. Nonetheless, it is not a matter of a few stitches. A well-conducted vaginoplasty is a blend of science, experience and artistry, so do some serious research if you're planning to consider this option.

Cost of Vaginal Tightening

Vaginal tightening is a difficult surgery due to the fact that the work is being done in such a small area. When done right, patients often describe an improved sexual experience. Also, studies show improvements in continence of urine. We charge 9K for this procedure including anesthesia, operating room fees, consultation, and follow-up appointments.
