After a vaginal delivery the vaginal introitus is not the same. The trauma of childbirth cause muscles of the vagina to become very lax. The vaginal skin is stretched during the vaginal birth, and the vagina that barely allowed 2 fingerbreadths (3 cm) to enter now can easily accommodate a tennis ball.
After childbearing the vagina can be restored to pre-childbirth appearance and function; a tighter vagina in every way. The excess skin can be removed and the muscles that have been stretched can be toned and tightened. Dr. Cappiello performs procedures for the full length of the vagina and the opening of the vagina. A surgery can be performed in our surgery center under local anesthesia with minimal sedation.
I had my last baby when I was 24 years old. My problem was that I had severe pain at the opening of my vagina. For 12 years I have been looking for someone to help my husband and I, and I was told that the problem was in my head. It took one visit and Dr. Cappiello found the problem. He told me it was vestibulitis and with a minor procedure done in his office, I was cured.” -B.C.
Dr. Cappiello can use a laser in the tightening the vaginal skin. The laser is a much more gentle way of rejuvenating the whole vagina. The procedure may take up to one hour. The recovery requires only a few days with minimal discomfort. This is the cosmetic vaginal rejuvenation procedure that is often advertised as the “Enhancement of Sexual Gratification”.
