Gynecology and Obstetrics Specialist Op. Dr. Sevtap Alkan shared the symptoms and treatment processes of vaginal enlargement, bowel and bladder prolapse.
“SURGICAL INTERVENTION IS A PREREQUISITE FOR 2nd AND 3rd DEGREE VAGINAL LASERATIONS”
“In a normal delivery, we have to make a vaginal incision to deliver the baby healthy. During this incision, we also traumatize the arcuate muscle between the vaginal opening and the breech,” said Op. Dr. Sevtap Alkan said, “As a result of cutting this muscle that provides pelvic support during birth, pelvic support also deteriorates. At the same time, sagging can occur in the bladder and intestines. Of course, it varies depending on factors such as how many times this person has given birth, age, muscle structure, collagen structure, difficult or easy birthing process. Patients may not feel these discomforts in their first birth, but after the 2nd and 3rd normal birth, they can understand it with symptoms such as sexual problems with the partner, frequent urination, constipation, vaginal infections. Of course, the actual diagnosis can be made by doctors. Mild vaginal anatomical disorders can be corrected with laser, but surgical intervention is required for 2nd and 3rd degree disorders. Vaginal disorders that arise after birth can also be congenital. These genital conditions can be corrected with both surgical procedures and laser treatment. The recovery period from this surgery is also very fast.
“PATIENT UNDER OPERATION MAY NOT HAVE A NORMAL BIRTH AGAIN”
Sevtap Alkan, who underlined that patients who want vaginal tightening surgery must first complete the number of births, and if not, the next type of delivery should be a caesarean section. Otherwise, the vaginal tightening operation is of no use, because with this vaginal tightening operation we restore the pelvic support of the pelvis. “This operation is a radical permanent solution,” he said.
“FEMALE MOTHERS DON’T NEED TO WEAK THEIR BABIES BEFORE THE OPERATION”
The average duration of breastfeeding for the mother is 1 to 1.5 years. The mother is also suitable for vaginal constriction like other surgeries during this breastfeeding period. Arguing that nursing mothers do not need to wean their babies before surgery, Op. Dr Sevtap Alkan said:
“The healing of normal postpartum stitches is on average 2 to 4 weeks. Although there are some exercises and medication applications for pelvic support and vaginal recovery, it is very difficult for the mother to put it into practice. Doctors claim that exercise and drug use are ineffective. If patients feel insecure and aesthetically inadequate in their sexual life, they can optionally undergo vaginal tightening surgery if they have no organic complaints. In this process, if the patient has urinary incontinence, bowel problems and infection complaints, the operation has become mandatory. Breastfeeding mothers do not need to wean their baby to have this surgery. They can resume their daily work 3 days after surgery and resume normal sexual life within 40 to 45 days.
