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.
