What is Vaginoplasty?

Vaginoplasty is a surgical procedure that involves creating or repairing a vagina. It can be done for various reasons, such as treating medical conditions, improving sexual function, or affirming gender identity.

About the Vaginoplasty

The details of the procedure depend on the goals and needs of the patient, and may include different techniques and steps. Some common types of Vaginoplasty are:

Vaginoplasty for gender affirmation: This is a surgery to create a vagina for transgender women who want to align their physical anatomy with their gender identity. It usually involves removing the penis, testicles, and scrotum, and using the skin and tissue from these organs to create a vaginal canal and a vulva (the external part of the vagina). The surgeon may also use a skin graft from another part of the body, such as the abdomen or thigh, to create a full-length vagina. The surgeon also repositions the urethra (the tube that carries urine) and the clitoris (the sensitive part of the vulva) to match the female anatomy.

Vaginoplasty for congenital defects: This is a surgery to correct abnormalities in the development of the vagina that are present from birth. These defects may include having a very small or absent vagina, having an abnormal connection between the vagina and the bladder or rectum, or having extra tissue or structures in the vagina. The surgeon may use various techniques to create a functional vagina, remove excess tissue or abnormal structures, and prevent blood from pooling during menstruation.

Vaginoplasty for childbirth injuries: This is a surgery to repair damage to the vagina caused by childbirth, such as tearing, stretching, or weakening of the vaginal muscles and tissues. The surgeon may use stitches to tighten the vaginal canal and reduce the opening of the vagina, remove excess skin and fat, and restore the shape and appearance of the vagina.

Vaginoplasty Recovery

The recovery time for Vaginoplasty varies depending on the individual and the extent of the procedure. Generally, the patient can expect to have some pain, swelling, bruising, and numbness for the first few weeks. The patient should avoid any strenuous activity and follow the surgeon's instructions for wound care and medication. The patient may also have drainage tubes inserted under the skin to remove any fluid or blood, which are usually removed within a week. The stitches are removed after two weeks.

The patient may return to work after two to four weeks, depending on the nature of the job. The final results of the procedure may take up to a year to appear, as the swelling subsides and the scars fade.

Are you the right candidate for an Vaginoplasty?

Vaginoplasty is suitable for people who want to improve the shape and appearance of their vagina, but have enough skin and tissue in other areas of the body to use. The patient should also be in good health, have realistic expectations, and be at a stable weight. Vaginoplasty is not recommended for people who have very little skin and tissue, have chronic conditions that affect healing, or are allergic to anesthesia.


At Ciplastic, the starting cost for a Vaginoplasty procedure is $2,600 usd. Your final cost will depend on your specific individual needs.

Vaginoplasty is generally considered a safe procedure, but like any surgery, it carries some risks and potential complications. These include infection, bleeding, scarring, asymmetry, tissue damage, nerve damage, fluid accumulation, poor wound healing, and dissatisfaction with the outcome. To minimize these risks, it is important to choose a qualified and experienced surgeon, follow the pre-operative and post-operative instructions, and report any signs of problems to the doctor.

Vaginoplasty is designed to last for a long time, as the skin and tissue that are used to create the vagina are permanent. However, the results of vaginoplasty can be affected by factors such as weight fluctuations, aging, lifestyle, and genetics. To maintain the results of vaginoplasty, the patient should avoid significant weight loss or gain, exercise regularly, eat a healthy diet, and avoid smoking.
