Vaginoplasty Procedure

Once you have discussed your requirements with the plastic surgeon and given the surgery date, the vaginoplasty procedure will be conducted to narrow the vagina. There are three steps involved in vaginoplasty, and each of them is discussed below to give you a better understanding of how the procedure takes place. 

Step 1: In the first step of the procedure, the surgeon will mark a pie shape wedge on the areas from where the extra skin is to be removed. 

Step 2: The tissues beneath the skin and the vaginal canal are tightened in the second step of vaginoplasty. Suturing the muscle also takes place in this step. 

Step 3: Once the vaginal canal is tightened, mucosal skin is tightened, and the additional external skin is removed for aesthetic looks. 

How long does Vagina Surgery take to recover? 

Complete recovery from the vaginoplasty can take up to 12 months, but you can return to work after four to six weeks. Recovery from Vaginoplasty depends on your body and the procedure that has been performed. Usually, it takes six weeks to recover from the full-depth procedure.  If you have undergone shallow depth vaginoplasty, you may recover from it within the first four weeks. 

Several factors which may affect your recovery are: 

  • The extent of vaginoplsticity
  • The extent to which you follow post-op instructions. Some of the post-op instructions include restraining from certain activities, adhering to vaginal dilation, and carefully following hygiene protocols.

Once you have undergone vaginoplasty, you must take care of it for the rest of your life. During the early days of vaginoplasty, you must dilate your vagina to keep the vagina entrance open. 

After surgery, do not rush into physical intimacy and wait for at least six weeks to completely recover from the procedure. Avoid driving and engaging in physical activities such as horse riding and cycling. 

After the surgery, it will take some time for the vaginal sensation to return, which is normal after vaginoplasty. After six weeks, you will start feeling sensations, which may increase due to vaginoplasty. If the sensation doesn’t come back after six weeks, visit your consultant and discuss it with them to assess if everything is normal.
