Vaginoplasty is a surgery to reduce the width of the entire vaginal canal by tightening the laxed muscles and tissues of the vagina resulting in a tighter and smaller opening.
Women who can benefit from this procedure have permanent vaginal stretching and loss of strength and tone as a result of childbirth or aging. A vaginoplasty by Dr. Dugan, a cosmetic vaginal surgeon in Annapolis, MD (serving Maryland, DC and Virginia) can help revive the way you look and feel. Many women feel that this procedure creates a tighter sensation, thereby making intimacy a more pleasurable experience for her and her partner.
Vaginoplasty is done in the office under local anesthesia, typically taking approximately 1-2 hours. Incisions are made and a full depth repair of the vaginal canal is done by tightening pelvic muscles and removing excess vaginal tissue. This is accomplished by using the highly precise and minimally traumatic Ellman Surgtiron Radiofrequency device. The remaining tissue is pulled together and reapproximated with sutures, making the inner and outer vagina tighter.
What to Expect
You will receive an anesthetic cream on the surgical site to start the anesthetic process. You will also receive anti-anxiety medication, pain medication, and an injection of Marcaine at the surgical site. We monitor your vital signs throughout the procedure, ask you to tell us of your comfort level, and allow you to nap if you wish. Surgery takes approximately 1-2 hours. You can typically return to work in 5-7 days and do only light activities for 2 weeks. To allow appropriate healing and promote the best results, you must remain on pelvic rest for 6-8 weeks.
Vaginoplasty is considered a cosmetic procedure and is not covered by insurance. The cost for vaginoplasty can range from $7500-$8500 which includes surgery, pre-operative and post-operative appointments, local anesthesia, and facility fee. Financing is available.
