The Ultimate Guide to Vaginoplasty in Bangkok

Vaginoplasty is a reconstructive or cosmetic surgery to repair the vagina, or create a vagina where there isn’t one (particularly in gender reassignment) or to ‘tighten’ the vagina, which may have become slack, especially from childbirth.

Vaginoplasty procedures were originally undertaken to repair birth defects – they were reconstructive surgeries to improve function, rather than cosmetic surgery to improve appearance.

Cosmetic vaginoplasty is now a popular option, along with other related vaginal rejuvenation procedures, such as labiaplasty, or clitoropexy to change the look of the area. These procedures are also commonly called a ‘Designer Vagina’.

Some surgeons claim cosmetic vaginoplasty leads to improved sensitivity during sexual intercourse, although this has been challenged by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists. Sexual response is complex and personal, and other factors, including emotional and individual responses, also have a bearing on sensitivity and pleasure.

Am I suitable for vaginoplasty?

Women may want to have vaginoplasty to improve the contours and look of the vagina and labia. It could be suitable if you have:

· age-related problems, such as stress urinary incontinence may wish to combine vaginoplasty with another corrective procedure,
· scarring from previous surgery or childbirth,
· sagging vagina through pregnancy, age or weight loss,

What does the vaginoplasty procedure involve?

The surgery takes between one and two hours to perform.

You will be given general anesthesia or conscious sedation and the surgery is performed by removing the excess vaginal lining and tightening the muscles and surrounding soft tissues. The surgery achieves to give a similar degree of tightness as the patient had before childbirth.

What is the recovery time from vaginoplasty?

For a few days after the surgery, you will experience some discomfort and soreness. It is important to note that everyone heals at different rates, so any timescales are approximate – you may heal in a shorter time, or it may take longer.

Stitches are usually dissolvable, so you won’t need to have them removed. You will usually be allowed to shower 2 days, but no baths for several weeks after surgery. It will take 3 or 4 days before the initial discomfort subsides. Depending on how you feel, you will be able to return to work between 3 and 5 days after surgery. You will need to take things slowly and not take part in vigorous exercise, including swimming and jogging, for around a month. Sexual intercourse may be resumed after 6 weeks.
