...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..

A vaginal tighteneing (vaginoplasty), is more than just putting in 1 or 2 stitches.  It is done under general anesthesia and involves removing some of the mucosa, tightening the muscle layer, and reducing the size of the vaginal opening.  Ave cost is $5500 - $6000 in our area.

Vaginal tightening

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}


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.

Hi, first of all, NO ONE can achieve vaginal rejuvenation or tightening with just one or two sutures! If they tell you this, then clearly they do not have the training nor the experience to complete Vaginoplasty type procedures. The perineoplasty, is the repair of the opening of the vagina and nine times out of ten, the vaginal canal above this needs repaired and tightened as well. If just the opening is tightened, it creates abnormal anatomy and although the opening of the vagina may be tight, the rest of the canal will still be loose and wide. This is why it is VITAL to go to an experienced and well trained VAGINAL RECONSTRUCTIVE Surgeon, one that has training in both reconstruction (i.e. pelvic floor defects) as well as vaginal cosmetic surgery and rejuvenation surgery. A board certified Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Vaginal Surgeon that has additional training in vaginal rejuvenation is your best bet, but check anyone's credentials and experience prior to getting this procedure done. In many instances there is also issues with the pelvic floor support that need to be addressed as well and other specialities (i.e. plastic surgery, dermatology etc) have NO training in this functional aspect of vaginal surgery nor in the diagnostics as it takes years of training in a proper residency/fellowship to achieve this level of expertise. Prices certainly vary , however a highly reputable Vaginal Rejuvenation surgeon will charge in the range  of $6500-9000 and thereby be additional costs for the surgery center. 

Please be careful in your choice of surgeons.

Vaginal tightening

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Tightening of the vagina involves multiple sutures from the entrance (called the introitus) up to the cervix. This procedure costs between $6000 and $10000 depending on where you live and which surgeon you choose. 

Occasionally, tightening of the external opening alone is performed, but this involves more than 1-2 stitches. The cost for this procedures is around $3000-$5000 since general anesthesia is not needed.

Vaginoplasty for Effective Vaginal Tightening

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

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.

Repair of the back of the vagina towards the anus requires a complete reconstruction of the muscles and skin. A " suture or two" will not address the muscle separation that occurs with childbirth(s) where the muscles and skin are stretched and frequently damaged. A vaginoplasty restores the natural anatomy of the muscles and skin and  requires 1-2 hours of surgery under general anesthesia or pudendal block. Recovery is uncomfortable for a week to 10 days. Sexual activity is restricted for 6 weeks until the healing is well under way.
