Have you noticed decreased vaginal tightness after childbirth? Don’t worry; you’re not alone. The vaginal tissues naturally become looser after childbirth and as a result of the aging process. However, if you have uncomfortable symptoms or lower self-confidence due to vaginal laxity after childbirth, vaginal rejuvenation can help.
Keep reading to learn more about vaginal restoration to tighten the vagina after childbirth.
Vaginal Laxity After Childbirth
In childbirth, the muscles in the vaginal walls are stretched out to accommodate the child’s head. Unfortunately, the vagina can’t re-tighten to its pre-childbirth position, leading to vaginal laxity, or looseness. For many women, vaginal laxity doesn’t resolve over time and can cause a variety of symptoms.
Some of the most common symptoms of vaginal laxity include:
- Reduced sexual arousal and satisfaction
- Stress urinary incontinence, which is uncontrollable urination during exercise, laughing, sneezing, coughing, etc.
- Tampons slipping out of place
- Changes to the appearance of the vagina
- Bowel movement problems
- The sensation of a loose, wide, or smooth vagina
- Vaginal Rejuvenation
Women who want to restore vaginal tightness after childbirth can opt for a vaginal rejuvenation procedure. Both surgical vaginal rejuvenation and THERMIva® non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation are available as solutions to vaginal laxity.
Surgical Vaginal Rejuvenation
Also referred to as vaginoplasty or aesthetic vaginal surgery, this minimally-invasive surgical procedure can restore:
- Vaginal tightness
- Sexual pleasure
- A youthful appearance of the vagina
Surgical vaginal rejuvenation is an outpatient surgical procedure that lasts for one to two hours. This procedure significantly improves vaginal laxity, strengthens the perineal body, and reduces the internal and external vaginal diameters. The results last for many years.
Nonsurgical Vaginal Rejuvenation with THERMIva®
Nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation with THERMIva® is beneficial for women experiencing vaginal looseness with one or no previous vaginal births. Using gentle radiofrequency (RF) energy, THERMIva® stimulates natural collagen production inside of the vagina, external labial areas, and vaginal wall beneath the urethra. This additional collagen causes the tissues to tighten, providing relief from vaginal laxity. With the accumulative effects of three THERMIva® treatments spaced one month apart, patients notice a rejuvenated vaginal area with greater tightness and strength.
Results from THERMIva® vaginal rejuvenation can last for a year or longer, depending on the patient. To restore vaginal tightness after this period, patients can schedule maintenance procedures one to two times per year.
