Vaginal Rejuvenation after Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery for Uterus, Cervix Prolapse

There is absolutely no problem in having vaginal rejuvenation after any procedure to lift the uterus, the cervix or the bladder. The only pelvic reconstructive surgeries that might pose a problem are any procedures in which a mesh was placed along the posterior vaginal wall. It's extremely helpful to obtain a copy of your medical records from you previous surgery when consulting another surgeon about these types of procedures.

Cervical Position should not be a contraindication for vaginal rejuvenation. As Dr. Stanton pointed out, the rejuvenation procedure is mostly surgery to tighten the introitus (opening ) of the vagina. If you have urinary problems or a "rectocele" then these might be a contraindication for surgery. The surgery wil make you "tighter", but over time the tissue can stretch again. Sometimes patients need a "touch-up" tightening procedure about 6 months after the primary surgery. You should take at least a week off from work and be prepared to take several weeks off from strenuous exercise.

Yes you should still be able to undergo Vaginal Rejuvenation even though cervix is high.  Typically the main reason patients seek and undergo vaginal rejuvenation is to "tighten" the vaginal opening and the vaginal vault, so yes indeed this is a primary objective and result of the surgery.  Although you will be back on your feet the next day you will have significant soreness and local discomfort for the first week - for this reason you should plan to take off of work for about a wk.  Your activities are limited to "light duty" for 2 -3 weeks and gradually progressing from there depending upon pain and soreness.  Sexual activity is typically prohibited for nearly six weeks.  best of luck...RAS
