As years go by, it is not only the skin of the face that starts to show signs of age, but the skin on other parts of the body as well. Cellular and tissue structures change, leading to the loss of skin elasticity and tightness. Skin dehydrates and loses its moisture. Collagen production goes into decline, the skin is no longer toned, and the epidermis wears thin. However, modern-day medicine can now offer a new minimally invasive treatment method using APTOS Threads .

Bio-absorbable Caprolactone threads with microscopic cogs which are inserted in the hypodermis of the sagging areas. Caprolactone is a wide approved component to create absorbable surgical thread. Therefore, the method ensures Bio-compatibility and safety.

What is minimal invasive surgical vaginal tightening with APTOS Threads?

Women age, the skin of the vagina loses its elasticity and vitality as collagen fibers become fatigued. Just as cosmetic procedures have been used for decades to improve facial skin and to restore its youthfulness, minimally invasive surgical vaginal tightening with APTOS threads improves the health and vitality of vaginal tissue.

Loss of elasticity and strength in vaginal tissue occurs for a number of reasons, including:

• Aging

• Smoking

• Obesity

• Childbirth

• Hysterectomy

• Surgery

• Episiotomy

These events replace the skin’s natural collagen with fibers that do not recoil or stretch properly.

Vaginal tightening with threads is a cosmetic procedure that restores the appearance and function of the vaginal area.

What does tightening and rejuvenating the vagina and perineum mean: The perineum is the part of the surface of the human body between the anus and the external reproductive organs. A woman's perineum lies between the labia majora and the anus. It is a body covered in skin and made of muscle and fascia tissue, with a length of about 3-4 cm. The muscles are arranged in three layers, form the pelvic floor which supports the internal reproductive organs . Of great importance are the sphincters of the anus, which tighten the orifices of the rectum and the vagina. If the muscles of the perineum or pelvic floor are damaged, the reproductive organs can sag or fall out, the bladder and the rectum might droop as well. In such a case, corrective surgery of the perineum muscles and the vagina is necessary. A Vaginoplasty is a plastic surgery that aims to tighten and rejuvenate the tissues of the vagina and pelvic floor (perineum) and recover the lost joy of sexual life. Such procedures are usually necessary for women who's vaginal tissues have lost their tone and elasticity due to childbirth, trauma or congenital pathology. This can have a big influence on both a woman's and her partner's sexual life. The vagina and perineum tightening and rejuvenation procedure with APTOS Threads has a dual effect:

• The anatomy of the perineum, the vulva, is reconstructed.

• The long-term effect of the Threads is that new collagen is produced around the thread, forming fibrous tissue and strengthening the pelvic floor.

When can you use APTOS Threads?

• If the vagina or perineum ruptures after childbirth;

• In the case of prolapsed vagina;

• For perineum reconstruction after episiotomy;

• For rejuvenating the tissues of the vulva.

Why APTOS Threads , What are the benefits of this procedure?

• This technology helps to reconstruct the aesthetic and functional condition of the female reproductive organs;

• Minimally invasive;

• Fast recovery.

Compared to the standard plastic surgery conducted on the perineum, this procedure offers more benefits:

• the procedure is conducted on an out-patient basis,

• the procedure lasts only 20 to 30 minutes,

• it does not require general anesthesia, just local anesthesia.

• it is minimally invasive.

The effect of the vagina and perineum tightening and rejuvenation procedure with APTOS threads is dual: Not only does the procedure reconstruct the anatomy of the perineum and the vagina, but it also helps to achieve long-term results. Collagen is produced, creating fibrous tissue which ensures the long-term strength and elasticity of the pelvic diaphragm. The Threads are used at such a depth as necessary for the desired effect, whether it be to reconstruct the anatomy of the perineum or to tighten it. The post-operative period lasts about 3-5 weeks, depending on the extent of the surgery. During this healing period, the patient might feel a slight tightness and sensitivity of her vaginal and perineal tissue. It is also necessary to abstain from sexual relations and to limit physical activity. The vaginal tightening and rejuvenation procedure can be conducted on both women who have given birth and women who have not. This quick and simple procedure allows women to regain their confidence.


• Revirgination

• Vaginal tightening

• Perineal reconstruction after episiotomy postpartum

• Perineal reconstruction after lacerations from childbirth Vulvar tissue lifting

VAGINAL TIGHTENING works in two ways :

by immediately pulling the tissue by mechanical action and by generating a strong secondary fibrotic reaction that leads to the formation of the so-called “secondary vector of pull”.

The effect given by fibrosis remains even after the total absorption of the thread, ensuring a permanent and lasting result over time.
