Vaginoplasty is a procedure designed to tighten the vagina. After child birth, women may complain of vaginal laxity, resulting from stretching of tissues and seperating of muscles , sometimes to the point that a tampon falls out, and this lack of tone can contribute to sexual dysfunction.

What does a vaginoplasty do?

A vaginoplasty brings the separated muscles together, and the extra mucosa skin from the back side of the vagina is removed. The external skin can also be removed for a more aesthetic appearance.

Vaginoplasty procedure

Once the amount of thightening to be done is determined, a pie-shaped wedge is marked to delineate the extra skin to be removed from inside the vagina. Beneath the skin , the tissues are tightened with strong sutures. Once I be vaginal canal has been tightened, the mucosal skin is sutured closed. If there is external skin that protrudes , this can be reduced as well for a a more aesthetic result.

Recovering from a vaginoplasty 

Patients may have one to two weeks of down time. They may feel ache for the first few days , and there is no tampon use or intercourse for 4 weeks.

Before your treatments you might also need to:

Stop smoking. Smoking decreases blood flow in the skin and can slow the healing process. If you smoke , Dr Mak will recommend that you stop smoking before surgery and during recovery.

Avoid certain medications. You will likely need to avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, blood tinners and herbal supplements, which can increase bleeding.

As you begin your journey toward considering plastic surgery and other cosmetic enhancements , my goal as your plastic surgeon is to provide you the highest quality of care throughout the entire process.
