Vaginoplasty is a one hour surgical procedure that is designed to decrease the diameter of a woman’s vagina by permanently tightening the vaginal canal and vaginal opening by repositioning the pelvic muscles. Healthy women who suffer from significant laxity, a four-to-five finger vaginal width, may be good candidates for this procedure.
Women who believe they could benefit from vaginoplasty should first visit with Dr. Brady for a full physical examination and discussion of their medical and health history. Extensive time in consultation leads to outcomes in line with each patient’s goals. During the examination, Dr. Brady will determine the degree of vaginal relaxation and discuss realistic outcomes for each individual patient.
Though most women seek vaginoplasty treatment as a result of vaginal childbirth, many women who have delivered through C-section or who do not have children also suffer from a widened vagina. Of these women, many also suffer from urinary incontinence as a result of their weakened and loose vagina.
Urinary incontinence is often a huge struggle for women after childbirth. The process of labor and delivery, as the baby travels down the birth canal and out into the world, can leave many Dallas women with bladder issues long after baby has been weaned. The stress that is placed on the pelvic floor may cause the muscles surrounding the vagina to thin causing the bladder to prolapse. This prevents normal and controlled urination.
Though some women are able to regain control of their bladder after performing Kegel exercises, or visiting a physical therapist some women need surgical intervention with vaginoplasty to restore normal function. Dr. Brady can fix bladder prolapse during vaginoplasty, and depending on the medical necessity, the procedure may even be covered by your Dallas insurer.
During every vaginoplasty, Dr. Brady focuses on both the quality of the procedure and the comfort and aesthetic vision of her patients. She defines success based on the satisfaction of the women in her care, and those women praise her calling her the “Gold Standard” in her field.
