I often select a region in visual mode for properly indenting it. However, after pressing for example 3>, visual mode exits and the selection disappears.

How can I re-select the previously selected region, so that I may further edit it?

If I get you right it is gv.

You can also remap > and <:

xnoremap > >gv
xnoremap < <gv
