About Vaginoplasty

We know that our patients have many worries and preoccupancies that can cause them concern throughout their daily lives. At Plastic Surgery Institute of Utah, we don't want discomfort and distress caused by stretched vaginal walls to be an issue that plagues women. This is why we offer rejuvenating procedures to address the most delicate areas, such as vaginoplasty. Vaginoplasty (also known as surgical vaginal rejuvenation/reshaping) is the surgical tightening of the vaginal muscles, which can become lax over time due to significant weight loss, genetics, age, or childbirth. At our Midvale, UT office, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kirk Moore performs surgical vaginal rejuvenation to tighten the vagina and reshape the inner and outer labia. If you are concerned about the appearance of your vagina, or if you experience vaginal pain or soreness, schedule a consultation with Dr. Moore to learn more about life-changing surgical vaginal rejuvenation at Plastic Surgery Institute of Utah.

Ideal Candidates

During your consultation with Dr. Moore, he will be able to determine whether or not you are a suitable candidate for vaginoplasty. Your full medical history, age, and personal goals will be assessed and discussed at this appointment before Dr. Moore can create your custom treatment plan. You may benefit from a vaginoplasty if you:

  • Wish to improve your sexual satisfaction
  • Are seeking restored self-confidence and sexuality
  • Avoid wearing tight or revealing clothing, like bathing suits
  • Experience pain or soreness during sex or other activities
  • Feel that your vaginal muscles did not recover after childbirth
  • Have a naturally large vaginal opening
  • Suffer from vaginal laxity
  • Were given an episiotomy during childbirth

Surgical Technique

The vaginoplasty procedure removes the excess vaginal lining and tightens the surrounding soft tissues and muscles. Vaginoplasty is usually performed with general anesthesia at our AAAASF-accredited surgical facility. The surgery will begin with Dr. Moore placing incisions in discreet locations around the vagina and gently tightening the muscle tissue beneath the skin. The vaginal opening is then reduced in size by removing some of the vaginal lining (mucosa). If you are combining your vaginoplasty with a labiaplasty, Dr. Moore will perform that surgery immediately following the vaginoplasty. At the end of your procedure(s), Dr. Moore will carefully suture the incisions for optimal results and minimal scarring.

What to Expect

You can expect minor pain and discomfort following the surgery. In addition, bruising and swelling are common following a vaginoplasty procedure. It is recommended that you avoid sexual intercourse, tampon use, or strenuous exercise for a period of 4 – 6 weeks. In most circumstances, you will be able to return to sedentary work in about a week with a full return to daily activities at around three months. After recovering from the procedure, you can expect a restructured vaginal opening that looks and feels better. Some patients report heightened sensitivity and increased friction during sexual intercourse.


How much does vaginoplasty cost?
The price of your vaginoplasty procedure will depend on your unique concerns and goals. More complex conditions may require additional procedures, such as a labiaplasty, to reshape the vaginal lips, and this will add on to your costs. At your one-on-one consultation with Dr. Moore, we will assess your situation and discuss your cosmetic goals to create a personalized treatment program. From there, we will review your expenses and go over the various payment options we accept, including low-interest medical financing.

How long will my results last?
The results of vaginoplasty can last for many years. Most patients need to only undergo one vaginoplasty in their lifetime. It's important to maintain a healthy weight and to cease childbearing in order to maintain the effects of your surgery. Our skin starts to relax as we age, but it's unusual for the vaginal area to reach the degree of laxity that it was prior to your procedure.

Can I have children after my surgery?
We highly recommend that you are past your planned pregnancies before receiving vaginoplasty or you could risk compromising your results. However, if the situation does arise, you can safely bear children. If you do become pregnant, your results could be touched up with a second procedure.

Risks of vaginoplasty?
There are risks associated with any invasive surgery, but the most common risks pertaining to vaginoplasty include infection, bleeding, and the potential for scarring. Comparatively, the risks associated with vaginoplasty are fewer than those associated with pregnancy.
