“Dr. V exceeded the results I was expecting for my surgery. Pain was kept at an absolute minimum. I’m still surprised at that, because I’d had implants and a tummy tuck before and had a lot more pain then. Plus he corrected a serious defect to the point that you have to know I had it to even notice it.”

Benefits of Vaginoplasty
Vaginoplasty, or vaginal tightening, provides various benefits for those with vaginal laxity issues, including aesthetic improvements and potential relief from mild stress urinary incontinence, which causes urine leakage during physical activities. Common benefits of vaginoplasty include:
What is Vaginoplasty?
As women age, the muscles of the vaginal wall may become naturally weak and flaccid due to hormonal fluctuations, sexual activity, and genetics. Many are embarrassed by vaginal wall laxity and have stopped enjoying sexual relationships, and for some, intercourse might even be painful.
Vaginoplasty is an ideal solution for women who feel that their vaginal canal has become too loose, often due to childbirth or the natural aging process. This surgical procedure can significantly improve sexual sensitivity and pleasure, and uplift self-confidence.
During a vaginoplasty, excess vaginal tissue and skin may be removed, and the floor muscles are tightened. The vaginal opening can also be surgically altered to become tighter. For women with weakened vaginal wall muscles, this surgical vaginal rejuvenation technique can restore tone and control.
Ideal Candidates for Vaginoplasty in Houston
An ideal candidate for vaginoplasty is experiencing laxity of the vaginal wall muscles and decreased sexual sensitivity and is motivated to change the appearance or function of the vagina. The best surgical candidates are non-smokers, at a healthy and stable weight, and have good general health.
Also, good candidates want to undergo the procedure for their own reasons, rather than because of external pressure.
The consultation for vaginoplasty in Houston is conducted in a private, comfortable setting with Dr. Vitenas. He will review your medical history and listen to your goals for vaginal rejuvenation. You’ll have the opportunity to express any concerns and ask questions.
Dr. Vitenas will then perform a physical examination to assess the vaginal muscles and structure. He will explain the procedure in detail, walk through your custom treatment plan, and answer any questions you may have. Dr. Vitenas provides discreet, compassionate care for this very personal procedure. The consultation is an essential first step to determine whether you’re an ideal candidate for vaginoplasty.
Remember that your surgeon is there to support you and provide the best care possible. Any information you share during the consultation is kept confidential and is essential for ensuring your safety, satisfaction, and successful results from the vaginoplasty procedure.
The Vaginoplasty Procedure
Vaginoplasty is an outpatient surgery performed in a private operating suite at the Houston Surgery Center. It typically takes one to two hours and is done under general anesthesa.
The procedure begins with an incision on the posterior (rear) floor of the vagina. A portion of the posterior vaginal wall mucosa is excised, exposing the floor musculature, which is then tightened and repaired with sutures. Dr. Vitenas skillfully manipulates the underlying musculature to restore firmness and tone to the vaginal area, addressing concerns related to vaginal laxity.
The external opening is then repaired with repair of the space between the vagina and rectum (perineum).
Vaginoplasty Recovery and Healing
Recovery time after vaginoplasty in Houston is usually one to two weeks. Following a vaginoplasty procedure, patients may experience some soreness, light bleeding, bruising, and mild swelling. However, these side effects usually fade within one to two weeks. Most women feel comfortable returning to work within three to five days post-surgery. However, it is important to avoid vigorous exercise and strenuous activity for four to six weeks to ensure proper healing.
It’s essential to follow all post-operative care instructions. This includes avoiding sexual intercourse and tampon use for up to six weeks, taking showers instead of baths, and potentially using a prescribed vaginal cream. Most women feel a difference in vaginal tightness and experience enhanced sensation during sex after healing is complete.
Long-Term Vaginoplasty Results in Houston
The results of vaginoplasty can be long-lasting. However, some factors can influence its longevity. For instance, the natural aging process can lead to gradual changes in the vaginal area over time, as well as subsequent vaginal childbirth. Significant weight fluctuations might also impact the tightness and appearance of the vaginal area. Proper post-operative care can also contribute to the lasting success of the procedure.
Additionally, a healthy lifestyle that includes maintaining a stable weight, staying hydrated, and avoiding smoking can help support the enduring benefits of the surgery.
