Surgical procedure

  • Non-surgical vaginal tightening with laser technology is one of the non-invasive, non-surgical treatment, that restores the vaginal tissues without using any anesthetic or numbing cream. Femi-lift is a laser treatment, that utilizes a controlled laser beam that applies concentrated thermal heating to the inner layers of the vaginal tissue. The heat induces contraction of collagen and elastin, that allows a long-term change by stimulating regeneration of some important proteins. The accuracy of this procedure is usually facilitated by a controlled movement and the intensity of the laser to ensure maximum comfort for individual candidates. A Femi-lift is a 15-minute procedure, that can be performed during lunch breaks. However, most of the patients do not feel any major pain and it does not involve any downtime after the procedure. One session will not be enough to get the results, treatments are scheduled at two to four-week intervals and two treatment sessions are usually enough for maximum patients.
  • Surgical vaginal tightening includes the administration of local or general anaesthesia in the patients, before beginning with the procedure. Then the surgeon very carefully removes the excess skin and tightens the stretched muscles by dissolvable stitches. These stitches give rise to smaller diameters of the vagina and it also tightens the surrounding vaginal soft tissues. The pre-pregnancy muscle tome can sometimes be restored with this surgery. The sutures and the degree of tightness are done according to individual specifications of the candidate. The scarring is not usually visible as the sutures are made internally. The procedure takes about one to two hours, depending on the level of tightening to be achieved.

Limitations
