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.

What happens during vaginoplasty?

The details of the procedure depend on your goals or medical needs and include reconstruction of the vagina using different surgical techniques.

In our case, vaginoplasties are performed under local anesthesia to numb your vaginal area, so you won't feel pain during the procedure. Once the procedure is complete, the surgeon makes incisions on your vulva or in your vagina as well as in the surrounding tissues and muscles. The location of the incisions varies depending on the type of intervention that your case requires. Finally, he closes the incisions with absorbable stitches.

Postoperative advice

  • Following the operation, go home the same day and office work can be resumed on the fifth day

  • You will have to wait 6 weeks before you can practice any sexual activity 

  • Sport can be resumed at 4 weeks

Possible complications

Risks of blood accumulation (hemorrhage) and infection may occur. It is also possible to notice scars as well as increased sensitivity in the perineum. Finally, it is possible that the area between the anus and the vagina is cracked and that, in more serious cases, necrosis can be observed.
