Vaginoplasty is a surgical treatment to tighten the female pelvic floor muscles surrounding the vagina. The goal of the treatment is to give a woman improved strength or control of these muscles. The method was initially planned to fix genetic vaginal deformations or to repair vaginal stretches and tears that are frequently a result of childbirth.


  • A full vaginoplasty method takes about 1 to 2 hours. The operation generally includes either pulling of the pelvic floor muscles closer together or removing any loose unwanted skin and scar tissue or a combination of these two.

  • The result will be a tighter, restructured vagina that will perfectly provide more friction and improved pleasure during sex.

  • Scarring may be take place but should fade over time. A doctor tends to be very careful on placing incision sites in the natural folds of skin where they will be less noticeable.

  • Patients who are undergoing vaginoplasty are naturally kept under anesthesia or sedation by doing the procedure most doctors will prefer won’t allow the patient to be awake in order to make sure their will be maximum comfort.

  • The cut can be made using a traditional scalpel procedure or by using lasers. Laser incisions are supposed to make the healing procedure much easier than scalpel incisions, but the appearance and feel of the final outcome is usually the same in both two methods. Doctor will decide which procedure to use but that will depends on a patient’s specific needs.

Recovery from vaginoplasty is comparatively very easy, but will require some planning and association to make sure that the body heals properly. After a vaginoplasty treatment patients may stay for few hours in the recovery theater and then they are allowed to go home in a day. The pain after the operation may causes some significant discomfort, but it can be cured with pain medication and should collapse after few days. Bruising and swelling of the cut site are frequent and last for 1 to 2 weeks.
