What is vaginoplasty?

Vaginoplasty is surgical tightening of the vaginal canal to improve vaginal laxity, sexual satisfaction, and genitourinary incontinence. Very similar to the abdominal muscles that can be separated during pregnancy, the vaginal muscles can be separated during childbirth resulting in looseness of the vaginal canal that can lead to embarrassing symptoms such as vaginal flatulence and urinary incontinence as well as issues with sexual satisfaction. Vaginoplasty brings these muscles together and removes the excess stretched out tissue to restore a youthful, rejuvenated vaginal area.

What can I expect at my initial consultation for vaginoplasty at The Oaks Plastic Surgery in Houston, Texas?

The team at The Oaks Plastic Surgery understand that vaginoplasty is a very personal and sometimes embarrassing topic. We aim to make you feel comfortable during your initial consultation for vaginal rejuvenation.

Be prepared for your initial consultation to last 1 hour or more. New patient forms for patients desiring vaginoplasty will have very personal questions about sexual satisfaction, urinary continence, and other genitourinary symptoms that can be uncomfortable or embarrassing. While you may think many symptoms you experience are embarrassing, many women deal with the same issues, and the physicians at The Oaks Plastic Surgery are committed to helping you in the best way they can. After having a thorough discussion about your concerns and goals, your TOPS plastic surgeon will perform a focused exam, which will require an internal vaginal. Photographs and measurements will be taken for operative planning. After, a detailed discussion about surgical or nonsurgical options will be discussed with you to meet your goals. During your consultation, feel free to ask any of our plastic surgeons or cosmetic surgery staff about questions or concerns you may have.

What can I expect for recovery from vaginoplasty?

Recovery from vaginoplasty is very similar to recovery from childbirth or an episiotomy. It is important to keep the area clean to prevent infection or wound healing complications. You will be given a wash bottle to help keep the area clean. You can expect some spotting after the procedure and should wear a liner or pad until this subsides. You can begin taking sitz baths after 36 hours, which may help ease some of the discomfort, but be very careful with the water temperature. Some patients choose to use numbing spray for the first two days to also help with any discomfort. Any pain should be greatly improved after the first week. We ask that you refrain from strenuous exercise for 2-3 weeks and intercourse for 6 weeks to allow for proper healing.

What can I expect the day of my vaginoplasty procedure in Houston, Texas?

If vaginoplasty is planned under general anesthesia, your plastic surgeon will meet you in the preoperative care area the day of your vaginoplasty procedure. Extensive preoperative checks will be performed and you will get to meet the anesthesiologist and plastic surgery operative team. The procedure typically takes about 1 hour. You will undergo recovery in the post anesthesia care unit and be sent home with all the dressings and aftercare you need following the procedure.
