What Is Vaginoplasty?

Vaginoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure that repairs, reshapes, or reduces the vaginal muscles and/or the perineum. You may hear variations of terms such as vulvar-vaginal reconstruction, perineum, perineal trauma, perineal dysfunction, sexual abuse, parturition, vaginal introitus, acute deceleration injury, straddle injury, insertion injury, forceful coitus, intrapartum laceration, or obstetric trauma, which can all be related to the need for vaginoplasty. Patients are under general anesthesia while the surgery is performed.

Vaginoplasty Procedure

Vaginoplasty tightens the vaginal muscles, which may aid in increasing sexual pleasure for a woman. Vaginoplasty also addresses urinary incontinence, hernia, and interior/posterior repair.

A hoodectomy may be performed to expose the clitoris in order to address clitoral phimosis. Hoodectomy is sometimes used to address sexual dysfunction such as lack of orgasm.

Why Should I Choose Dr. Mayhew and For Women By Women for Vaginoplasty?

Unlike plastic surgeons, Dr. Mayhew has a complete understanding of the female genital area and all of the factors, possible complications, and best healing processes for vaginal rejuvenation surgery. With over 20 years of OB-GYN experience, Dr. Mayhew understands that patients want more than cosmetic results. She explains that vaginoplasty is more than just tightening the vagina. Patients want their anatomy to work and feel the way it used to. 

What Are the Benefits of Vaginoplasty at For Women By Women?

Vaginoplasty is the surgery that “tightens” and rebuilds the vaginal muscles and the perineum. Childbirth (especially multiple childbirths) and other genetic factors often cause the vaginal muscles to stretch, tear, or weaken. The size of the vagina swells larger and sometimes there is a loss of sensation (and pleasure). In some cases, it can lead to urinary incontinence or leaking.
