Abstract

Lateral colporrhaphy is a surgical technique used to cosmetically tighten the vaginal mucosa and is indicated for vaginal laxity and decreased vaginal sensation, though data are limited regarding its effectiveness. The goal of lateral colporrhaphy is to excise redundant vaginal mucosa to improve appearance and enhance sensation during intercourse. Possible complications include localized infection, postoperative bleeding, wound breakdown, recurrent vaginal laxity or decreased sensation, overcorrection resulting in a very narrow vaginal canal, vaginal pain, dyspareunia, granulation tissue, cystotomy, proctotomy, and fistulae. This is considered a cosmetic procedure by most insurance companies and not covered.
