Vaginal Tightening Surgery (Vaginoplasty)

Following childbirth and with age some women may feel that their vaginal muscles are weak and loose. This can be uncomfortable, embarrassing, have a psychological impact and can lead to sexual dissatisfaction and difficulty with intercourse for her and her partner. When conservative measures such as pelvic floor exercise have failed, surgery can be considered with the aim of improving the tone of the vagina by tightening the muscles and supporting tissue.

Patients say

Labiaplasty and vaginoplasty. Excellent price. Hospitality again will never be beaten. Had treatment for wrinkles too. Hospitality and price I don't think can be beaten by any other place! Very professional.

Where do I start with this amazing man Dr Xav. He is the most thoughtful and caring Dr who wants to get to know his patients and make them feel at ease. The whole process from start to finish I haven't been able to stop saying what a lovely guy (Dr). He made me feel at ease all of the time. The surgery was very professional and came out very well. I'm day one of post op and travelled a long way with my partner and will travel back again for other procedures. Thanks for constantly checking how I was after the operation. Provided us with the best lunch and hospitality after the surgery. Myself and my partner stayed for 2 nights at the travel lodge close to the surgery and enjoyed seeing Manchester for the first time. Highly recommend the travel, fantastic price. I've previously had other surgeries locally in Norwich and never had a surgeon who really cares about what they where doing until now. Massive thanks HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Thanks Xav

Rachel, Norwich Labiaplasty, Vaginoplasty, Treatment for Wrinkles

I am now a week post op since my vaginoplasty which was performed under a local at the clinic. I chose this procedure primarily to boost my self-esteem and my own happiness. The procedure took an hour in the treatment room then Xav bought me lunch afterwards which was wonderful and really personalised my experience. I was given pain relief and anti-biotics for my aftercare treatment and returned home the same day. Xav has been in touch via text to check my progress most days; if I text he will reply promptly in a courteous and friendly manner.

I am more than pleased I've had this procedure and am hopeful my results will reflect this in 6 weeks. I'll keep you posted!

I am so pleased I chose this clinic, firstly for the competitive price and secondly Xav answered all of my questions with accuracy and honesty and put me at ease. Based on my first visit to the clinic I would definitely recommend it to others thinking of having a vaginalplasty and laser rejuvination - Paid £2000.

I was very very pleased with the service. The doctor is very experienced in his work. I was offered tea and coffee, drinks lunch and was even offered diner after my treatment. During the procedure I did not feel any pain at all. Everything was taken care of. Afterwards was excellent. Transport was organised free from the clinic to my hotel. I was given all necessary medications antibiotics and pain killers. The doctor kept in touch to monitor my healing process. Today has been three weeks since Vaginoplasty was carried out on me. All stitches dissolved now. The price was just right and I will be going back for final check up in the next three weeks. Feeling great right. Will keep you informed.
