A vaginoplasty is a surgical procedure that tightens the vagina. This is done by removing excess of vaginal lining and tightening the surrounding soft tissues and muscles. It is done in our office under a local anesthesia.

During delivery of a baby the vagina and surrounding tissues and muscles become stretched. After delivery the vagina may return to a more "normal" size, but it often fails to return to its pre-pregnancy diameter. Generally, the more vaginal deliveries, the worse the condition gets. Many women will complain of decreased sensation and sexual satisfaction during intercourse. Commonly this is due to a lack of friction. Often their partner may notice a change although he may say nothing. Vaginoplasty surgery will tighten the vagina and surrounding tissues restoring the pre-children vaginal tightness.

We have also had numerous patients who feel loose although they have never had children. On the physical exam they indeed had a vaginal diameter that was greater than expected. Vaginoplasty surgery can help these women as well.*

Many years of experience in vaginal reconstructions made Dr. Hanna one of the best surgeons in Vaginoplasty.

Most women who desire Vaginoplasty complain of feeling "loose". They note decrease of friction during intercourse resulting in lower levels of sexual satisfaction and more difficulty in climaxing. Vaginoplasty will increase friction during intercourse. After surgery, the vaginal tightness is similar to the pre-baby days. You will easily feel the difference and so will your partner.*
