Project Description

Laser Vaginoplasty

Many women feel that “things have changed” since having children. This may be a change in sexual sensation, reduced sexual satisfaction or less enjoyable sexual relations with your partner. Some women feel that the vagina is more open and feels looser since they’ve had children or just as part of the aging process which results in loss of tissue collagen and strength.

Some women may naturally have less vaginal tightness than they would like or feel the appearance of the vaginal opening is too large and open or there is extra tissue that bothers them.

There are solutions to these concerns.

Laser vaginoplasty (laser vaginal tightening or laser perineoplasty) is a procedure that uses laser or radiofrequency to reduce the diameter of the vaginal opening (introitus) and builds up and strengthens the perineal body (the area between the vagina and anus). Women choose this procedure to modify the appearance of the vagina to bring it back to the way it looked before they had children. Women also choose this procedure to address changes in sexual sensation, pleasure and satisfaction as it makes the vagina feel tighter and improves frictional forces during intercourse. Laser vaginoplasty can also remove excess tissue around the vaginal opening and in other areas near the vagina.

The Treatment

Dr. Allan trained in Beverly Hills, California in 2001 to learn his unique laser methods and he has performed over a thousand procedures since then. Dr. Allan’s specialty is in labial and vaginal surgery and he is the most experienced surgeon in Canada in performing laser vaginoplasty.

Dr. Allan’s procedure results in minimal recovery time and minimal risks. You have the option of having this procedure performed under general anaesthetic (i.e. you are “asleep”) but many women have vaginoplasty performed with local anaesthetic so you don’t need to undergo the risks or prolonged recovery time associated with general anaesthetic. This means you are able to drive to and from your appointment if you choose. Vaginoplasty takes about an hour to perform and uses a laser or radiofrequency device to access the large muscles that encircle the opening of the vagina. Stitches are used to bring the muscles back together and narrow the vaginal opening. This is a very safe procedure and risks are very minimal.

Recovery

Following a vaginoplasty you will not have any discomfort for about four to six hours. This gives you time to get home and get comfortable. When the freezing comes out most women find it uncomfortable enough for the next 24 hours that they will need strong medications. We will send you home with two different kinds of medications and an ice pack. We recommend that you take the medications regularly for the first 24 hours. After that, many women reduce the amount of medication. Most women will take three to four days off work or school. You should reduce your activity significantly for the first two weeks and wait for a full six weeks before returning to full activities and heavy workouts. The stitches will dissolve on their own.

Results

It is important when choosing a surgeon to perform your vaginoplasty you make sure they are fully trained and experienced in this delicate and intimate woman’s procedure. Dr. Allan is a gynecologist certified by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada who is trained in vaginal surgery and has been performing vaginoplasty for over 20 years. We will be happy to show you before and after photos when you come in for your consultation so you know what to expect.

At the Allan Centre we understand this is a sensitive issue and we want every woman who comes here to feel comfortable enough to discuss her personal concerns. Dr. Allan and his staff are happy to answer any questions that you have and are here to help you find the solution that you need.

I cannot say enough about the amazing treatment I received at the Allan Center! From my first contact with Melissa at the office, to booking my appointment, the surgery and in the aftercare; everything was exactly how I expected it to be. Absolutely first class and professional. My results were great. Let’s be honest, I did have discomfort and concerns afterwards; but Dr Allan made himself available to answer my questions and make me feel at ease. And as a result of the perioneoplasty, my sensation is greatly improved, and sex feels so much better!
