Vaginoplasty is one of the most commonly requested gynecological procedures in New Jersey. It’s a reconstructive surgery that tightens the vaginal canal, reversing the effects of age, weight changes, childbirth, and menopause on the vagina. Dr. Falguni Patel performs a highly-tailored vaginoplasty in New Jersey at her OSHA-certified surgical center in Aberdeen.
WHAT IS IT?
Vaginoplasty is a cosmetic and reconstructive procedure that addresses vaginal relaxation, i.e., the loss of tightness from the vaginal canal. Vaginal relaxation makes the muscles of the vaginal canal lose their strength and tightness, increasing the vagina’s diameter. Vaginoplasty tightens the vaginal canal and muscles, restoring a youthful vagina. After childbirth, many women experience laxity in their pelvic muscles and tissues due to the physical trauma of delivery. The vagina typically heals and returns to a more “normal” size, but often fails to return to its pre-pregnancy diameter.
As a result, many women report decreased sensation and diminished sexual satisfaction during intercourse, commonly due to a lack of friction. While Kegel exercises can help, they rarely succeed in restoring vaginal tightness. Our vaginoplasty procedure can help. A vaginoplasty is a surgical procedure that removes excess tissue and brings the damaged vaginal muscles surrounding the opening together to tighten the area and restore the vagina to a more youthful diameter.
Candidates for Vaginoplasty
WHO IS IT FOR?
Vaginoplasty is suitable for women experiencing vaginal laxity due to age, multiple childbirths, hormonal changes, and other factors. Vaginal laxity increases the vagina’s diameter, leading to self-consciousness, body image issues, lack of sexual pleasure, and gynecological problems like urinary incontinence. If you experience these problems, an NJ vaginoplasty may be for you.
Vaginoplasty is particularly common amongst women between the ages of 30 and 50 who don’t wish to get pregnant anymore. However, the procedure is suitable for most adult women in good physical conditions with realistic expectations. Dr. Patel will help you work out if you’re a good candidate for a vaginoplasty during an extended consultation.

WHAT ARE THE RISKS?
Our vaginal reconstructive surgery in New Jersey is a safe and effective procedure, especially when it’s performed by Dr. Patel’s talented hands. However, all surgeries carry the inherent risks of anesthesia reactions, severe bleeding, scarring, and infections. Dr. Patel minimizes the risks with antibiotics and advanced laser techniques that minimize bleeding and infection risks. However, you should contact Dr. Patel if you notice heavy bleeding after the procedure.
CAN IT BE COMBINED WITH OTHER SURGERIES?
Vaginoplasty can be combined with various other cosmetic and gynecological procedures, such as hysterectomy, hymenoplasty, labiaplasty, mons pubis liposuction, and more. Dr. Patel will discuss all your concerns, goals, and expectations during your consultation to recommend the ideal combination of procedures for you.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
Dr. Falguni Patel performs the vaginoplasty procedure in her state-of-the-art and OSHA-certified surgical suite after a thorough evaluation and consultation. She discusses your goals and needs, examines the vaginal area, and runs several tests to curate the most effective and safest vaginoplasty techniques. The procedure may be performed under local or general anesthesia.
Vaginoplasty in New Jersey is performed as an in-office and outpatient procedure that lasts for 60 to 90 minutes, though it may take longer if combined with other surgical procedures, like a labiaplasty. The surgeon tightens and reinforces the vaginal muscles and perineum, thereby reducing the vaginal diameter and strengthening the pelvic floor.
After determining the amount of tightening to be done, Dr. Falguni Patel marks a pie-shape wedge of extra skin to be removed from inside the vagina. Beneath the skin, she uses strong sutures to tighten the vaginal tissues.
Once the vaginal canal is tightened, she sutures the mucosal skin closed and removes any external skin that protrudes to create a more aesthetically-pleasing appearance.
You can expect some spotting and swelling for a few days, but the prescribed pain medications and ice packs will alleviate the discomfort. You can resume most of your daily activities and work after 3 days and return to work within 2 weeks. However, you must avoid sexual intercourse and strenuous activities for 6 to 8 weeks.
The procedure for vaginoplasty typically results in a tighter vaginal canal and enhanced sexual satisfaction.
