A vaginoplasty is a surgical procedure that involves the repairing of the perineum (perineoplasty) and the anterior vaginal wall to produce a tighter vaginal canal.
Many women experience vaginal laxity following childbirth due to the stretching of tissue and muscle separation. The lack of vaginal tissue tone can contribute to sexual dysfunction, with some women experiencing altered vaginal sensations.
Vaginoplasty is generally performed while the patient is under general anesthesia. The surgeon will remove extra skin from the inside of the vagina and tighten vaginal tissue.
We generally recommend that patients take one to two weeks off of work to heal and relax after the surgery. Pain medication may be recommended following the procedure. Tampon use and sexual intercourse are usually prohibited for eight weeks following surgery.
