What is Minimally Invasive (MI) Vaginoplasty

Despite the natural resilience of the vagina, it’s not indestructible. The vagina serves multiple functions and can change dramatically throughout a woman’s life. Sudden traumatic injury, childbirth, hormonal changes, and even the process of aging can damage the vaginal structure, compromising its essential functions and negatively impacting your self-esteem.

Fortunately, many surgical and nonsurgical procedures are available to repair and rejuvenate the vagina. One example is MI vaginoplasty.

Also known as MI vaginoplasty is the surgical repair of the pelvic floor and vaginal walls that can be performed under local anesthesia and was designed and created by Dr. Tahery. It’s a versatile procedure that targets your unique needs. Many women choose to combine it with other surgeries like labiaplasty. However, the primary goal of vaginoplasty is to reverse tissue laxity and restore vaginal tightness.

What are the Benefits of MI Vaginoplasty?

The details of this procedure and how Dr. Tahery performs it depend entirely on your cosmetic goals and medical needs. As always, MI vaginoplasty starts with an in-depth consultation and evaluation. During that time, Dr. Tahery inspects the vaginal walls and pelvic floor to determine the right course of action.

MI vaginoplasty under local anesthesia offers many benefits.

From a medical standpoint, this procedure can address a myriad of concerns. Tissue laxity is a common issue after weight loss, childbirth, or physical injury. The laxity can compromise the structural integrity of the vagina, affecting surrounding organs.

Damaged tissue can cause organs to bulge through the vaginal walls. Eventually, that can lead to pelvic organ prolapse, urinary incontinence, and noticeable pain or discomfort. MI Vaginoplasty procedures can address those issues head-on, restoring the vagina’s core functions and stabilizing the walls that support surrounding organs.

It can be combined with procedures to provide relief from incontinence, eliminate the physical pressure of prolapse, and take care of pain.

But that’s not all. MI Vaginoplasty procedures also combine well with other cosmetic and functional repairs.

Many women struggle with loose tissue. Like the skin on your face and body, vaginal tissue loses its ability to “bounce back” over time. Laxity becomes a genuine problem.

Slack tissue can occur for many reasons. It’s prevalent after childbirth and weight loss. However, every woman will encounter vaginal looseness as they age and go through the hormonal changes of menopause.

Loosened tissue can cause physical discomfort and affect your sex life. Many women have a hard time experiencing sexual pleasure, resulting in self-esteem problems.

MI Vaginoplasty procedures can tighten the tissue and rejuvenate the vagina. It may help to improve sexual gratification for you and your partner. But most importantly, it can help you reclaim your sexual health and restore your confidence.

The MI vaginoplasty surgery can be life-changing in many ways. Not only does it address health problems, but it can give you your life back and help you feel more confident than ever before.
