Vaginal tightening is very popular and has become widely accepted in the medical community as a reconstructive procedure. This surgery involves vaginal muscle tightening and rebuilding of the vaginal canal and narrowing of the vaginal opening. Dr. Isom-Batz performs tightening of the entire length of the vagina, not just the opening, unlike most plastic surgeons. Women request tightening of the vaginal canal for many reasons: damage to the area after natural birth, trauma, stretching, past botched surgery and reduced friction during intercourse. There are several phrases used to describe this procedure: vagina tightening, vaginoplasty and genital surgery.
Different specialty doctors are performing these surgeries, however, not all have the advanced training necessary to perfect the techniques required to obtain the best results. Dr. Isom-Batz has specialty training in both vaginal reconstruction and aesthetic vulvovaginal surgery.
Vaginal rejuvenation surgery generally takes between 1 and 2 hours, depending on the complexity of the case, and can be done in combination with other vaginal surgeries.
