Secondary Vaginoplasty

A secondary vaginoplasty is for patients who have already undergone a first vaginoplasty and who are unsatisfied with their results.

Expected and desired results:

  • Construction of a vaginal cavity or correction of the current vaginal cavity to obtain a satisfactory depth and to be able to engage in sexual relations with penetration.

During this procedure, it is also possible to improve the appearance of the current vulva, notably:

  • Improve the definition and accessibility of the clitoris;
  • Construct a clitoral hood.

Surgical technique used:

  • Creation or correction of the vaginal cavity by dissection of the space between the prostate and rectum to a depth of 5 to 6 inches. The prostate is left in place because its removal would cause irreversible incontinence;
  • A skin graft is taken from the back, thigh, or buttocks to be grafted inside the vaginal cavity;
  • If applicable, implementation of corrections discussed and planned with your surgeon.

Secondary vaginoplasty surgery can be performed at the same time as other procedures.

*Due to multiple factors that are unique to each individual, results may vary from one person to another. Be assured that our surgical team works with each patient individually to achieve the best results possible.

After surgery:

  • Specific care: Vaginoplasty requires care that you will integrate into your daily routine for the rest of your life. Following your dilation schedule and maintaining good vaginal hygiene will have a significant impact on the results of your procedure.
