Vaginal Tightening

Vaginoplasty / Vaginal Tightening in Bangkok, Thailand

          Vaginoplasty is a standard gynecologic surgical procedure that aims to "tighten" a vagina.  The vagina has become slack or loose from experience, enlargement due to stressful expansion during childbirth, aging, or outcomes to fixing functional problems, such as urinary incontinence.

          Their results can often be loose, weak vaginal muscles. Even after exercise (Kegal exercise), the condition of the vaginal muscles may not improve. The patients will often describe vaginal looseness as a decrease in their ability to attain vaginal orgasms. The result is an immediate decrease in the size of vaginal muscles, resulting in more friction during sexual experiences.

          1. Anteria & Posteria vaginal repair (A-P Vaginal Repair) that removes the excessive anterior and posterior vaginal tissues as well as bladder and rectum prolapse, thereby correcting the prolapse and, at the same time, tightening the vagina
