Also known as ‘vaginoplasty’, vaginal tightening is the second most common aesthetic gynaecology procedure.
As a result of child birth and sometimes ageing the vaginal muscles and skin becomes excessively loose and result in decreased sensation and sexual pleasure and feelings.
This procedure reshapes and tightens the inner vaginal walls and muscles to produce a more toned and tight vagina, which enhances sexual pleasure and experience for both female and male partners.
Vaginal tightening can also be a method to treat women suffering involuntary loss of urine by exercise, sneezing, coughing, laughing or sex.
