  • What is vaginoplasty?

    Vaginoplasty is a genitoplasty procedure to repair or reconstruct the vagina. Also known as colporrhaphy, this procedure is either performed for cosmetic reasons i.e., for the aesthetic enhancement of the vagina, or to correct functional disorders such as genital disorders caused due to childbirth, pelvic floor disease, or a vaginal injury. It is also performed to create a transgender vagina for gender affirmation. 

    It is known that a woman’s vagina tends to lose its shape and tightness over the years. A vaginoplasty procedure also helps restore and improve the laxity of the vagina, which has become loose due to factors such as vaginal births, accidental trauma, aging, and so on. This surgery helps tighten the walls of the vagina, treat vaginal looseness, and solve multiple pelvic conditions caused by a loose vagina like poor pelvic muscle control, urinary leakage, pain during sexual intercourse, decreased sensation during sex, and vaginal prolapse. 

    Several women are born with congenital abnormalities i.e., issues that are present since birth. Such women can also undergo a vaginoplasty procedure.

    How is Vaginoplasty Performed? (Step-By-Step Vaginoplasty Procedure)

    As discussed, a vaginoplasty may be performed for different reasons. Mostly, a vaginoplasty is considered to restore vaginal laxity, and tighten the vagina loosened due to childbirth, vaginal injury, etc. Here’s how a vaginoplasty is performed with the purpose of vaginal tightening

    Step 1: The patient receives general anesthesia for sedation. In some cases, the doctors also use local anesthesia to numb the area to be operated, while the patient stays awake throughout. It’s the doctor’s call to decide which anesthesia would work best.

    Step 2: Next, the surgeon then makes incisions inside the vagina; the location and length of which shall vary depending on the type of technique being used. Typically, tiny incisions are made around the vaginal opening, or in the posterior vaginal wall. The surgeon then moves to tissue removal and tightening.

    Step 3:, The surgeon then reduces the diameter of the vaginal canal by removing excess vaginal lining and tissue. They excise a portion of the vaginal lining, and then suture the rest of the tissues together to make the vaginal canal narrower and tighter. 

    Step 4: Finally, they make the remaining adjustments to the tissues, and then carefully suture the incisions with dissolvable stitches.

    The patients are typically monitored in the recovery room for a couple of hours following this surgery. The duration of hospital stay after a vaginoplasty can differ. In most cases, it is performed as a daycare procedure. Or, in some cases, the patient may be required to stay in the hospital for 1 day.

    Why are you seeking a Vaginoplasty?

    How does vaginoplasty work?

    Vaginoplasty is a daycare procedure in which an anesthesia doctor first administers local anesthesia to numb the genital area. The gynecologist then begins the procedure by pulling all the loosened vaginal muscles together to restore vaginal laxity to its original state. The surgeon uses dissolvable sutures to secure loose tissues in part or the full depth of your vagina. But some women are not born with a hymen. Vaginoplasty is a safe procedure that can be performed in a single sitting, and patients can go home on the same day of the surgery.

    How to prepare for vaginoplasty?

    Vaginoplasty is a simple surgery to restore vaginal tightness. However, some women can be skeptical about the procedure right before the surgery. Some of the key instructions before vaginoplasty surgery include the following preparations – 

    • Inform your gynecologist about your medical history, including any ongoing medications, allergies related to anesthesia, or any other medications. 
    • Do not engage in sexual intercourse or penetrative activity for at least a month before the surgery. 
    • Do not smoke tobacco or consume alcoholic beverages for at least 5-6 weeks before the scheduled surgery. 
    • Since the surgery is performed under anesthesia, you mustn’t eat for at least 8-10 hours before the operation. However, you may include fluids, including water, fresh juices, sports drinks, or clear broth/ tea. 
    • On the day of the surgery, wear loose clothing to avoid discomfort.  
    • It is generally not advisable to shave the surgical site yourself. Avoid shaving it yourself to prevent cuts and bruises.

    Who is the right candidate for vaginoplasty?

    • Women older than 18 years can undergo vaginoplasty for medical and cosmetic reasons.
    • Women with multiple unfortunate past traumas, vaginal deliveries, and natural aging, may experience some amounts of vaginal looseness.
    • Women may also undergo vaginoplasty to correct severe cases of pelvic organ prolapse, which can lead to urinary leakage or stress urinary incontinence every time a woman bends, lifts weights, etc. 
    • A woman can undergo surgery to elevate her sexual sensation and pleasure, provided the doctor confirms she has no underlying health issues.

    Recovery after Vaginoplasty

    The post-treatment care for vaginoplasty involves rest and dietary restrictions for the first few weeks after the surgery. Since there are multiple fresh stitches in the vagina, the surgical site is usually sensitive for the next 6-8 weeks after the surgery. 

    Therefore, it is advised that patients who undergo vaginoplasty must not engage in penetrative sex for almost 1.5 months after the surgery. The vagina is still sensitive and can lead to excessive bleeding in case of any insertion. The patient must consume a high amount of fibrous food and a diet rich in fluids. 

    The recovery after vaginoplasty takes around 5-7 weeks for complete results. The gynecologists or cosmetic surgeons will prescribe medications along with diet charts to ease the pain after surgery. However, it is suggested that you have a well-balanced and fluid-rich diet for a fast and smoother recovery.

    Patients often experience slight constipation initially after the procedure due to anesthesia. Gynecologists often recommend a fibrous diet to ease the passage of stools. Additionally, it is usually recommended to take a light laxative and avoid spicy and cold food.

    What is the cost of Vaginoplasty in India?

    Vaginoplasty cost in India generally ranges between Rs. 40,000 to Rs. 50,000. The cost is subject to change, and the final expense can vary from person to person. Therefore, if you’re planning to undergo this surgery, you must ask the surgeon or hospital to give you a cost estimate beforehand.

    • Here are some factors that can cause vaginoplasty costs to vary:
    • Location & choice of hospital
    • Fees charged by the surgeon
    • Method of vaginoplasty to be used
    • The extent of looseness of the vagina Charges of prescribed medicines (if required)
    • Charges of follow-up consultation

    FAQs around Vaginoplasty

    Is vaginoplasty legal in India?

    Yes. Vaginoplasty is a legal treatment in India performed for cosmetic as well as medical reasons. Several hospitals across the country provide safe and effective vaginoplasty procedures. It is, however, important for the patient to get this procedure done only at licensed hospitals and clinic 

    Whose consent is required for Vaginoplasty?

    To undergo vaginoplasty, a woman should be 18 years or above. Irrespective of her marital status, if she is above 18 years, she does not require anybody else’s consent for vaginoplasty. The doctor would only need to understand the patient’s treatment needs.

    What is the difference between Vaginoplasty and Vaginal tightening?

    A vaginoplasty is a surgical procedure to treat extreme laxity of the vagina and improve its medical and cosmetic ramifications. A vaginal tightening procedure, on the other hand, is a non-surgical procedure performed just for cosmetic purposes, chiefly to tighten loose vaginal muscles. While a vaginoplasty is also aimed at restoring the vagina’s function, and is sometimes performed for medically necessary purposes, a vaginal tightening procedure is elective and the choice to undergo it is chiefly upon the patient.

    Who to consult for vaginoplasty/vaginal rejuvenation

    Both obstetrician-gynecologists and plastic surgeons are eligible to perform vaginoplasty or vaginal rejuvenation. Since the treatment is a cosmetic procedure, doctors from both disciples are eligible to perform it. However, a gynecologist is always the best choice for any treatment related to female genitals.

    Is vaginoplasty surgery painful?

    A vaginoplasty procedure is performed under general or local anesthesia, and therefore, the patients do not experience pain or discomfort during the surgery. But, the patients may experience some pain after the procedure, which can be managed through medications prescribed by the doctor.

    What do I need to know before vaginoplasty?

    Vaginoplasty is a surgical procedure meant to tighten, fix, or improve the laxity of the female genitalia. Vaginoplasty is not a permanent fix for the genital concern you have. While vaginoplasty surgery may provide tightness to the loose vaginal walls, it never guarantees permanent tightening. Over time and with age, the vaginal walls may lose some amount of looseness again. For any other doubts and concerns that you may have, you can discuss them with your gynecologist during the consultation.

    How long does vaginoplasty surgery take?

    The standard OT time of vaginoplasty can be around 30 to 45 minutes, depending on the patient’s condition and the gynecologist’s surgical expertise. If the procedure is done for a cosmetic procedure, it may take less time than vaginoplasty for clinical correction.

    What is the best time to undergo vaginoplasty?

    The right time for this vaginoplasty treatment would be at any point of your life during which you are not fully confident in the appearance or function of your vagina. If you think you need vaginoplasty, you can undergo the treatment. However, the surgery cannot be performed if you are on your period or if you are pregnant.

    How long after my delivery can I undergo Vaginoplasty?

    It is essential to wait at least three to six months after giving birth before undergoing a vaginoplasty. This allows sufficient time to heal any stitching that had to be done, such as an episiotomy. Additionally, the swelling and stretching from pregnancy and childbirth will subside.

    Does Vaginoplasty leave surgical scars?

    Vaginoplasty does not leave any scars. The gynecologists use dissolvable sutures, which can disappear within a week or so after the surgery. An expert and experienced surgeon will generally ensure no scars after the surgery.

    When can I return to work after Vaginoplasty?

    Most patients can return to work one week after vaginoplasty, but you may need two weeks or more. To resume regular work life, you must avoid exercise and sexual activity until you are healed (around 6 weeks).

    How soon can I have sex after Vaginoplasty?

    The patient must refrain from inserting menstrual cups and tampons and not indulge in sexual activity for at least 1-1.5 months after the surgery. Since vaginoplasty leads to minor stitches around your vaginal wall, the procedure leaves the surgical site very sensitive and can lead to tearing because of penetration. Penetration before complete recovery can lead to internal bleeding, infections, and multiple gynecological complications. The best time to resume sexual intercourse after a vaginoplasty is whenever the doctors suggest that you are fit.

    Does insurance cover the expenses of Vaginoplasty?

    A vaginoplasty procedure may be performed to address medical or cosmetic concerns. It is important to note that a vaginoplasty procedure performed to address cosmetic concerns or for vaginal rejuvenation isn’t typically covered under insurance. Insurance companies in India do not include any vaginal rejuvenation procedures, including vaginoplasty in their health insurance and mediclaim plans.

    However, in cases where this procedure is performed for medical or functional reasons such as urinary incontinence or severe pelvic prolapse, insurance companies may cover it under their health insurance and mediclaim policies. At Pristyn Care, we accept all insurances and also provide complete insurance assistance to the patients. In addition, if the insurance does not cover the treatment cost, we ease the financial burden of the patients with our No Cost EMI offers, and affordable treatment prices. 

    Know More: Is Vaginoplasty covered under Insurance?

    How should I choose the best healthcare provider for Vaginoplasty?

    Here are a few tips that may help you choose the best clinic for vaginoplasty:

    • Look for reviews and testimonials from previous patients. What have been their experiences of getting treatment at the clinic?
    • Are the doctors associated with the clinic trained and experienced enough? What are their surgical experience and expertise?
    • Are the medical staff helpful and cooperating? Are they willing to help you whenever you need them?
    • Is the clinic equipped with advanced medical and surgical equipment required for vaginoplasty?

    Does Vaginoplasty impact sexual health?

    Vaginoplasty is linked with improving sexual stimulation and sensitivity during sex, and enhancing overall sexual health. In addition, if a vaginoplasty is performed for the treatment of issues such as urine leakage or loose vagina, it can really help enhance an individual’s sex life.

    What is the success rate of Vaginoplasty?

    If performed under the supervision of a trained and experienced gynecologist, the success rate of vaginoplasty can be as high as 85-90 percent.
