Vaginal Surgery...


Prolapse surgery

 

Vaginoplasty - the tightening of loose vaginal tissue usually occurring after child birth. This can be uncomfortable, embarrassing and can even lead to sexual dissatisfaction.

The stretched muscle at the back of the vagina is joined together and shortened with dissolvable stitches, and the unwanted skin is removed. This may be carried out under local or general anaesthesia.


Other procedures include

 

Anterior colporrhaphy - Repair of prolapse in the front wall of the vagina

 

Posterior colporrhaphy - Repair of prolapse in the back wall of the vagina

 

Refashioning of poorly healed perineal scar from birth trauma Repair of recurrent prolapse

 

Treatment of the complications of vaginal prolapse repair with synthetic mesh.
