How is Vaginoplasty Performed?
Vaginal tightening surgery is an outpatient procedure that can take up to 2 hours to perform. Local anesthesia is administered into your vaginal canal and a wedge is marked to help doctors determine how much tissue will be removed. The muscles along the vaginal wall are then lifted and pulled together. Sutures will dissolve as your body heals from surgery.
