What is Vaginoplasty or Vaginal Reconstruction?
The vaginoplasty treatment is a minimally invasive surgical procedure involving tightening the vaginal canal and surrounding muscles. The procedure is referred to by other terms such as surgical vaginal tightening, vaginal rejuvenation, reconstructive vaginoplasty or cosmetic vaginoplasty.
Vaginal reconstruction alters the lining of the vaginal canal along with the perineal & vaginal muscles. Most women experience vaginal laxity and loss of muscle tone due to factors such as: genetics, ageing, childbirth, certain medical conditions and lifestyle factors. The procedure is an effective way to tighten the vagina and strengthen its surrounding muscles.
Vaginoplasty also offers the benefits of sensual enhancement, allowing for greater sensation and arousal during sexual activities. Combining this surgical vaginal tightening treatment with our other complementary minimally invasive laser and radiofrequency treatments provides optimal tightening while also promoting natural lubrication during intercourse.
In addition to improving vaginal tightness and sensation, vaginoplasty also helps treat urinary incontinence. With her expertise on how to tighten vagina, our female rejuvenation specialist, Dr. Mona, will be able to provide detailed information pertaining to the benefits of Vaginoplasty during a free one-on-one personal consultation we offer to all new patients. This will help you determine the right solutions for all your cosmetic and functional vaginal rejuvenation goals.
How is The Vaginoplasty Procedure Performed?
Vaginoplasty is a pelvic floor reconstruction procedure ideal for women who experience vaginal laxity. This procedure involves the removal of excess, loose vaginal mucosa (soft tissue lining the vaginal walls) followed by stitching/tightening the connective tissue between the levator ani muscles and recto-vaginal fascia.
Only tightening the vaginal opening cannot be considered a successful vaginoplasty. An effective vaginoplasty surgery treats the inner 60-70% of the vaginal canal in addition to the vaginal opening.
During the vaginal reconstruction, the perineum is also repaired and tightened by a procedure called perineoplasty. This procedure helps improve the vaginal opening functionally and aesthetically. However, it is crucial to note that a perineoplasty alone does not result in a tighter vagina and would likely not meet the expectations of an average woman seeking vaginal tightening.
The actual tightening aspect lies in repositioning the transverse perineal and levator ani muscles towards the midline.

Who Can Get A Vaginoplasty?
Ageing, weight gain & weight loss, vaginal delivery, medical conditions and genetic factors are some common causes of vaginal laxity. This leads to a lack of vaginal tightness resulting in women not being able to contract the Kegel muscles effectively (levator ani muscles).
In addition, a reduction of blood flow to the vaginal lining and scar tissue build-up interferes with sensation during sexual activities. Gynecologists typically recommend Kegel exercises for treating laxity. However, surgical treatments like vaginoplasty are recommended if the exercises do not bring about the expected results within six to twelve months.
Any woman above 18 years of age, in proper health, seeking vaginal reconstruction for aesthetic, personal or sexual reasons, can be an ideal candidate for Vaginoplasty. However, we recommend all our patients first consult with our expert vaginoplasty surgeon to receive detailed information before booking a procedure.

What Reduces Muscle Tone & Causes Vaginal Laxity?
Besides ageing, genetics and childbirth, other causes for vaginal laxity and loss of muscle tone include dysfunctional pelvic floor muscles (levator ani muscles), cystocele, rectocele and vaginal prolapse.
Patients experiencing these symptoms often complain of impaired vaginal sensation and a decrease in pleasure during sexual activities.
Vaginoplasty Surgery Increases Sensation & Improves Muscle Tone
Vaginoplasty aims at tightening the vagina from within by repositioning and stitching the levator ani muscles together. This procedure also improves blood flow by reducing vaginal scarring caused by childbirth, trauma or injury. The result is increased sensation and pleasure during sexual activities.
Patients who underwent vaginoplasty have also reported enhanced lubrication after the vaginal surgery.
Vaginoplasty is often combined with other complementary procedures to achieve exceptional results. Non-surgical tightening treatments used in combination with vaginoplasty (RF or laser) work synergistically to provide the most optimal results from vaginal reconstruction surgery. Additionally, the O-Shot® is available and recommended for increasing sensation of the clitoris and g-spot, if so desired.
Votiva Vaginal Rejuvenation: A Non-Surgical Alternative to Vaginoplasty
For patients seeking effective alternatives to a vaginal tightening surgery, we recommend the Votiva vaginal rejuvenation therapy. This non-invasive treatment for vaginal tightening utilizes radiofrequency (RF) to increase collagen production, resulting in a tighter vagina, enhanced natural lubrication and improved stress urinary incontinence conditions.
Besides being a quick and convenient procedure with minimal downtime, Votiva results last longer with regular follow-up sessions. The procedure acts on the vaginal appearance and functionality, allowing women to enhance their sexual health and overall well-being.
Benefits of The Vaginal Tightening Treatment
Vaginoplasty offers these benefits:
- Increase in muscle control & strength
- Heightened sensation and sexual response
- Improvement in the vaginal appearance
- Enhanced self-esteem & sexual confidence
For optimal results, labiaplasty is one of the most popular complementary procedures performed simultaneously with vaginoplasty. We recommend you consider undergoing this procedure additionally. Dr. Mona and her team of experts will provide all the necessary information on the process, including the time, benefits & results, risks and the cost of labiaplasty in Michigan.

What is vaginoplasty surgery?
Vaginoplasty is an elective, minimally invasive vaginal surgery for tightening the vaginal canal and surrounding muscles. This procedure helps improve the functional aspect of the vagina while enhancing its appearance.
How long does vaginoplasty take?
It usually takes one to two hours to complete a vaginoplasty. Post-surgery, if general anesthesia was selected by the patient, it may take an additional hour to recover before going home in order to allow sufficient time for the effects of the anesthetic to minimize. A registered nurse typically supervises the post-surgical recovery period.
How effective is vaginoplasty?
Vaginal reconstruction is highly effective in enhancing the appearance, sensation and tightness of the vaginal area. Most patients who underwent the procedure reported increased pleasure during sexual activities and improved self-confidence.
What qualifies you for a vaginoplasty?
Any woman above 18 years of age and in proper health desiring to reconstruct their vaginal area for aesthetic, functional or personal reasons is eligible for vaginal reconstruction surgery.
What are the risks of vaginoplasty?
There are a few potential risks associated with vaginoplasty, although it is considered highly safe. Bleeding, scarring and infection are some of them. However, our highly experienced surgeon, Dr. Mona, ensures these risks are minimal.
What is the recovery like after a vaginoplasty?
You may experience minor pain and discomfort in the treated area following surgery. Our specialist will prescribe antibiotics and pain medication to make healing more comfortable. Removing any sutures is unnecessary since they are self-dissolving and a full recovery should take approximately six weeks. After your procedure, we will provide you with detailed post-care instructions. Most patients can return to work within 2-5 days and sexual activities can be resumed after six to eight weeks.
