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.

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.

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.

Vaginal rejuvenation definitely requires more than just one or two stitches to get a great result. Please make sure you are consulting with a board certified plastic surgeon who has expertise in vaginal rejuvenation surgery! The vagina is a delicate area and you want to make sure your surgeon has the experience necessary to give you the best results - both aesthetically and functionally. The cost of the surgery varies based on what exactly you need done to get the results you want, as well as the experience of the surgeon. We do not like to give price quotes until we examine you in person so that we can give you the exact cost to expect. Good luck!

Cost of vaginoplasty

Cost varies depending on the exact procedure needed. Typically vaginoplasty is performed under anesthesia and may be done in conjunction with a formal prolapse repair, if prolapse is present. When this is the case, the procedure is billed through your insurance. 

No easy fix

1-2 stitches is not a true reconstructive operation.
I would run fast and far from a "surgeon" making such commentary.
Tightening of the vagina can be performed surgically if the problem is significant and usually from childbearing.
Often the surgery is covered by insurance-
cash pricing is often $5-7k.
Also recommend you look into ThermiVa, very exciting new non-surgical option.

Vaginal Tightening or Vaginoplasty

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.

How much does vaginal tightening cost? Is one or two stitches enough?

During the repair of an episiotomy or a vaginal tear caused by a vaginal delivery the popular myth of the honeymoon stitches involves the doctor putting in " a couple extra stitches for the husband."   I've delivered thousands of babies and it takes more than just a few stitches to accomplish that particular goal.Reconstruction of the vagina is a complex topic.  Some women want to be tighter for sexual pleasure for themselves and their partners. This is the vaginoplasty or vaginal rejuvination.  This surgery narrows the vaginal tube.  A perineoplasty - or tightening of the opening is done at the same time.  The price for this in our area is 4500 dollars.The complexity of vaginal repair has to do with other injuries present including herniation of the bladder or uterus or rectum or urethra or even the bowels.  When the vagina bulges out, it is the pelvic organs underneath or above the vagina that are bulging.  This includes the bladder, urethra, rectum, uterus, and intestines.  Women experience symptoms from these problems that can be unsettling.  Many times women just think leaking of the bladder is part of getting older.  Its not.  Reconstruction of the pelvic organs should be done at the same time as vaginal tightening when possible.  These repairs and the workup are typically covered by health insurance.
