Vaginal Rejuvenation Surgery: A Look At What Happens After The Fact

Vaginal rejuvenation surgery was once considered a taboo thing that people didn't really talk about, but these days, this surgery is far more common, far more talked about, and far easier understood. Vaginal rejuvenation surgery, sometimes referred to as VRS for short, is a surgery that is performed with the intention of tightening the muscles, skin, and tissue of the vagina. The surgery is sometimes opted for by women who want their vagina to have a more youthful appearance or who want heightened sexual pleasure. However common this surgery has become, there are still questions about the recovery process that most women want to know. 

How will you feel immediately after surgery?

There can be different experiences based on the different methods used during the surgery, but most women do have some pain and discomfort in their vaginal area after surgery. Your doctor will likely instruct you to use ice packs at incision points to keep the swelling down, and you may be prescribed pain medication to help with any severe pain. You should take it easy for a few days after surgery, primarily because you do not want to make matters worse by rupturing any stitches that were put in place during the procedure.

How long will it be before you can become sexually active again after VRS?

Yoru doctor will give you a precise timeline of when you should be able to resume sexual activity after VRS. In most cases, you should abstain from activity for a period of four to six weeks, but this timeframe could be longer if you had a series of procedures performed at once. For example, if you had vaginoplasty and labioplasty at the same time, your healing period may need to be a little longer before you try to have sex again. 

How will VRS change your sex life?

For most women, VRS enhances their sensitivity, so their sex life is greatly enhanced. Furthermore, their confidence is higher because they are happy with the way their vagina looks, which can be a huge factor in sexual contentment. However, VRS will require an adjustment period, so you will not go from having the surgery to immediately enjoying the new changes with your body. Because VRS changes the tightness of the vaginal canal, it can take some time and patience to get used to the way your body is shaped and how things feel when you are with a partner.
