Dr. Vitenas performs vaginoplasty in his office operating suite and at the adjacent Day Surgery Center, an outpatient facility at Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital.
The procedure takes about one hour to complete and may be performed with general anesthesia or local anesthesia and sedation. The incision for vaginoplasty is made on the posterior (rear) floor of the vagina. Once the incision is made, a portion of the posterior vaginal wall is excised and the muscles are tightened.
Recovery after vaginoplasty takes about one to two weeks. Patients may feel a bit sore after the procedure, and light bleeding may occur during the first day after surgery. Bruising and mild swelling may also be present and these side effects usually fade within one to two days.
Though many patients are able to return to work 3-5 days after surgery, more strenuous activities will need to be postponed for four to six weeks.
