What does Vaginoplasty involve?

It is not uncommon to have a combination procedure i.e. Vaginoplasty and Labiaplasty during the same surgery. They can also be performed at the same time with most cosmetic surgical procedures such as Liposuction, Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift or Breast Reduction, Facelift, Thigh Lift, Rhinoplasty and Eyelid Surgery. Vaginoplasty is performed under general anesthesia and you will be required to stay in the hospital for a maximum of 2 days. Vaginoplasty is performed as a standard gynecologic surgical procedure and takes about 60 - 90 minutes. You will spend an hour in the recovery room under the supervision of a nurse to monitor for post-operative complications like excessive bleeding. Vaginoplasty tightens vaginal muscles and the surrounding soft tissues. The incisions made to tighten your vaginal muscles will either be stapled or sutured with dissolvable suturing material. The result of a Vaginoplasty is an immediate decrease in the size of vaginal muscles, resulting in more friction during sexual intercourse.

How to prepare pre-operatively for Vaginoplasty?

Like all other surgeries, preparations for Vaginoplasty also require you to be aware of a few do's and don'ts which are as follows:

  • During your Vaginoplasty pre-operative visit, remember to inform your surgeon and anesthetist about your health condition and all the prescription and non-prescription medications including vitamin, mineral and herbal supplements that you are taking.
  • Your surgeon will request routine pre-operative testing of blood, urine, pap test and a pregnancy test to make sure that you are not pregnant.
  • If you smoke, stop smoking 2 weeks before Vaginoplasty to avoid healing problems during the recovery period.
  • Eat a balanced diet to help expedite your recovery after Vaginoplasty.
  • Do not eat or drink anything at least 10 hours before Vaginoplasty
  • Do not have sexual intercourse the night before Vaginoplasty to help the surgeon assess the vaginal tissues properly.

What is the recovery period like following Vaginoplasty?

There will be pain and discomfort for the next week or so following Vaginoplasty. Your surgeon will prescribe you pain medication to relieve pain, antibiotics to prevent infection at the incision site after Vaginoplasty procedure. You will also be instructed to refrain from sexual intercourse for at least 2 weeks or until the incisions made for Vaginoplasty heal completely. This is extremely critical as expansion of contraction of vaginal muscles during sexual activity can lead to tearing and incomplete or delayed healing after Vaginoplasty. You will be asked to come back after a week to get the sutures removed. Do exercises to strengthen and tighten the pelvic muscles, avoid straining during defecation (avoid being constipated), lifting heavy objects for about a month following Vaginoplasty. Vaginal muscle stretching exercises are very important after Vaginoplasty as it reduces the amount of scar tissue formed and may ensure an adequate sized vagina.
