Pregnancies and aging can cause vaginal problems, such as incontinence. Are you more sensitive when engaging in sexual activity? Have you noticed a decrease in sensation? Vaginoplasty might be the solution for you. This intervention reduces the diameter of the vagina, leading to a tightening effect. The surgery is also beneficial for the pelvic floor muscle. Vaginoplasty is performed under local anesthetic and usually lasts approximately 60 minutes.

Preoperative Tips

  • Respect the advice of your surgeon regarding medication, allergies and tobacco use.
  • Use a disinfectant soap to wash, avoid wearing tight clothing or jewellery on the day of the operation.

Postoperative Tips

You must stay in the hospital for 24 hours following the operation, then at home for 5 days in order to ensure healthy healing. The outer healing occurs approximately 10 days after the intervention.

You must wait 1 month before engaging in any sexual activity or strenuous physical effort. The use of alcohol and tobacco, as well as the use of tampons, is to be avoided.


Possible Complications

Risks of blood accumulation and infection can arise. It is also possible to notice scarring as well as increased sensitivity at the site of the perineum. Finally, it is possible that the area between the anus and the vagina becomes fissured and, in more serious cases, to observe necrosis.
