Vaginal Reconstruction, Vaginal Rejuvenation, (Commonly confused with Labiaplasty)
As a result of aging, and especially following childbirth, many women find that their vaginal muscles have weakened and stretched. This can make intercourse feel less pleasurable for both the woman and her partner. A vaginoplasty can help you regain the sexual pleasure in your love life by tightening up the muscles in your vagina.

If you have more questions about whether vaginal tightening is for you, please contact us [email protected] to set up a complimentary, and confidential, consultation with Dr. Lista or Dr. Ahmad.
What is Vaginal Tightening?
You will be placed under general anesthesia or local sedation. The surgery normally takes less than one hour. Toronto plastic surgeons Dr. Lista, Dr. Ahmad or Dr. Austin will make small incisions inside the vaginal area to join the loose muscles and shorten them. The vaginal opening will also be tightened. All incisions are then closed with dissolvable threads. This ensures that our Toronto and Mississauga vaginal tightening patients do not have to attend the clinic to have sutures removed at a later date.
The Best Candidates for Vaginal Tightening
The best vaginoplasty candidates are women who have found that intercourse has become less pleasurable due to the stretching of their vaginal muscles. Women who are currently pregnant or who are trying to get pregnant are not good candidates for this surgery.
Preparing for Vaginal Tightening
At The Plastic Surgery Clinic, we understand that discussing vaginoplasty to be difficult. Dr. Lista, Dr. Ahmad and Dr. Austin will take your concerns seriously, and will treat you with kindness, consideration and dignity, as we do with all of our vaginal tightening patients. If you feel more comfortable with a female nurse, we will gladly ensure that one is present during your consultation.
You will be given full instructions on how to prepare for your vaginoplasty surgery, and will require a gynecological examination and pregnancy test.
Vaginal Tightening Recovery
Following your surgery you will need to gently wash the area with soap and water regularly. There will be slight swelling and bruising for 2-4 weeks. Some pain may be present for approximately one week following the surgery, but there is generally very little pain associated with this operation. A prescription for pain medication and antibiotics is given to all of our Toronto vaginoplasty patients prior to their surgery to assist with the pain and to prevent any infection.
You should refrain from any vaginal insertion for 6 weeks, including intercourse and tampons. This will allow the incisions to heal completely and prevent any reopening. You should also avoid heavy lifting and exerting too greatly while defecating as this may negatively affect your healing. The sutures will dissolve and come out on their own.
You should be able to return to work one week after surgery. Avoid heavy lifting or strenuous exercise for 4-6 weeks.
Vaginal Tightening Risks & Complications
Every operation has risks and potential complications. Fortunately, the vast majority of patients who undergo vaginoplasty have no problems with their surgery and are extremely happy with their results. Risks are rare but when they do occur additional medications or even surgery may be required. Such risks include infection, bleeding, scarring, pain with intercourse, and deformity. The surgery can result in intercourse that is painful. Most of our vaginal tightening patients, however, never experience these risks.
Please keep in mind that at The Plastic Surgery Clinic, we will fix any problem or treat any complication for free. If you have an unsatisfactory result and we think additional surgery will help solve the issue, we will perform the surgery for free.

You will notice a difference right after your vaginoplasty. The vaginal canal should be much tighter. After you have healed fully, about six weeks after surgery, intercourse should be much more pleasurable for both you and your partner.
