Candidates for this surgery include:
- Individuals that have experienced vaginal stretching and/or minor tearing due to difficult childbirth.
- Individuals who find reaching orgasm difficult due to vaginal laxity.
- Individuals who are aging or experiencing menopause and are seeking a restoration of their sexual desire, along with a desire for a more youthful appearance.
Depending on the specific nature of the surgery, this could be an in-hospital or an in-office procedure. This surgery is often recommended and performed during more advanced prolapse repairs in the hospital. In this case, the redundant vaginal tissue is removed to tighten the entire vagina.
Vaginoplasty may be combined with perineoplasty, depending on the patient’s distinct need. In some cases, we may suggest the additional need for a clitoroplasty, or a labiaplasty (labia minora or labia majora) for optimum results.
