This type of surgery, sometimes called vaginal rejuvenation surgery, refers to a manifold set of treatments including vaginoplasty (tightening of the vagina) and/or vulvaplasty and labiaplasty (reshaping of the vulva and labia).
Labiaplasty, Vaginoplasty & Vaginal Reconstruction Surgery are three types of procedure that sometimes aim to correct pre-existing medical conditions, such as a genital prolapse, or to improve aesthetic appearance and improve self-confidence, for example after child birth or significant weight loss.
The field of vaginal reconstruction is highly complex and should only be undertaken by a surgeon who specialises in this type of surgery. There are a number of possible complications and risks, some signs of which may indicate that your treatment has been negligent, which can lead to a vaginal surgery compensation claim.
- Injury to the bladder causing incontinence
- Loss of sensation during sexual intercourse
- Pain during sexual intercourse
- Poor aesthetic outcome
- Need for additional rehabilitative procedures
- Blood clots
In some cases patients suffer from long lasting painful conditions due to the poor surgical technique employed or a poor level of post-operative care.
