Vaginoplasty Frequently Asked Questions
HOW CAN REJUVENATION OF THE VAGINA
CORRECT PROBLEMS AND ENHANCE MY LIFE?
After the stress of single or multiple childbirth, vaginal tissues tend
to lose their tone, often resulting in an increase in the width of the
vaginal canal. During sexual intercourse, this added width can result
in less friction, and decreased pleasure for both partners. Even with
regular exercise, including Kegal exercise, vaginal tone may not improve.
Vaginoplasty is a surgical procedure where the excess vaginal
tissue is removed, the size of the vaginal opening reduced and other supportive
tissues in the vagina repaired. The goal of the surgery is to increase
the fiction experienced by sexual partners during intercourse, hence improving
pleasure. Women often feel greater self esteem after the procedure and
HOW LONG DOES VAGINOPLASTY TAKE?
It generally depends on the extent of the procedure, but each procedure
usually takes about one to two hours.
IF IVE NOT HAD CHILDREN,
CAN I STILL HAVE A VAGINOPLASTY PROCEDURE?
Generally, YES! Depending on your individual circumstances you may be
a candidate for vaginoplasty. One does not have to have had children to
be a candidate for the vaginoplasty procedure, and it is performed quite
frequently on women without children. If you are planning to have children,
it is recommended you wait until you have completed childbearing to have
IS THERE A PERIOD OF TIME AFTER
THE VAGINOPLASTY PROCEDURE WHEN I MUST REFRAIN FROM SEXUAL ACTIVITY?
As with any type of surgical procedure, there is usually a period of time
needed for the body to heal. Generally, you should refrain from any type
of sexual intercourse (vaginal penetration) for a period of 4-6 weeks.
Your doctor would advise you if there was a change in this waiting period.
IF IM VISITING FROM OUT-OF-TOWN,
HOW LONG SHOULD I REMAIN AFTER SURGERY BEFORE DEPARTING?
With either Labiaplasty or Vaginoplasty, you should be allowed to return
home the day after surgery. Your doctor would advise you if there was
a change in this waiting period. Read more on our What
to Expect page.
WHAT TESTS ARE REQUIRED BEFORE
All patients undergoing surgery will require basic blood and urine tests
as well as a pregnancy test for women. Your doctor will advise you accordingly
during your consultation.
WILL IT HURT?
During the procedure, our anesthesia staff assures that you're comfortable
and will feel no pain. In every instance, you'll be asleep through the
entire procedure. This will be discussed with you in detail during the
initial consultation. After surgery, any pain or discomfort you may experience
will be controlled through medication and will usually subside within
a matter of days.
HOW SOON CAN I GET BACK TO WORK?
It depends greatly on the procedure, but on average most patients are
back to work within 3 to 7 days. If complications arise, additional time
away from work may be required.
HOW LONG WILL IT BE BEFORE I CAN
EXPECT A FINAL RESULT?
This varies with the type of operation being performed. It also depends
on the individual. Some people bruise easily, while others dont.
Generally there will be swelling and some bruising after surgery. Both
will usually disappear over a week or two. The final optimal result can
usually be appreciated a few months after surgery.
WILL THERE BE SCARS?
Yes, but they probably won't be noticeable. Your doctor will make every
effort to keep incisions as minimal as possible and try to hide them in
the natural lines and creases of your skin. The scars will fade over time
and become barely noticeable.
WHAT ARE THE RISKS AND COMPLICATIONS?
As with any operation there are certain risks. The most common risks include
bleeding, infection and scarring. Although these events are usually infrequent,
they sometimes can occur. Specific potential complications vary with both
Labiaplasty and Vaginoplasty. These will be discussed with you during
your consultation for your procedure. To put the risk in perspective,
pregnancy is associated with far more risk than any of these procedures.
