Vaginoplasty

With the rapid progresses in knowledge of MTF patients, it became possible to envision complete medical and surgical resolutions for sex change transitions. During the 1950’s, surgeons began examining surgeries to construct vaginas by using skin grafts taken from the thighs or buttocks.

In the latter part of the 1950’s, French surgeon — Dr. Georges Burou invented the modern form of penile inversion for sex reassignment surgery. Today, the techniques for these specific procedures have been steadily distinguished.

Vaginoplasty is a medical procedure involves the creation of the vagina. Vaginoplasty is also performed to revise vaginal anomalies and congenital disorders such as absenteeism of a vagina at birth, as well as to repair the region from disease or injury.

Vaginoplasty Defined

VAGINOPLASTY is a surgical procedure that principally transforms penile and scrotal tissues into a vagina, clitoris, and labia. This procedure is usually combined with labiaplasty that further enhances the labia and external vaginal area in MTF patients, giving it a natural female presence.

Procedure for Vaginoplasty

The most common vaginoplasty technique implemented uses tissue from the existing genitalia to create the vagina (penile inversion technique); with some cases necessitating additional skin grafts.

A more complicated procedure using a segment of colon (colovaginoplasty) may be performed if there is diminutive existing tissue, but it more complex and a less preferable option in most MTF cases.

Vaginoplasty is executed under general or spinal anesthesia and takes approximately three to four hours. The testicles and the erectile tissue of the penis are detached. An incision is made from the base to the head of the penis, and the skin is peeled away from the shaft while remaining attached to the torso. The clitoris is molded from the glans of the penis, keeping the nerves undamaged. Depending on the specific case, the sensate clitoris and labia is created. A small portion of scrotum is used to fashion the labia (the lips of the vagina). Cotton packing is positioned in the vagina.

If the penis is satisfactory to length, no additional skin grafts will be necessary. If the penis is short, a skin graft will be necessary to line the deepest part of the vaginal cavity.

If the patient requests further characterization of the labia and clitoris, a second stage labiaplasty is performed.

Recovery Stages

Recovery from vaginoplasty in Mexico presents some soreness and swelling following surgery. You will be able to get up and move around after a few hours and walk around comfortably after a few days.

The surgical area should be iced for the first 48-72 hours; heat should be applied afterwards if there is minor swelling. Showering and dabbing the surgical area dry and applying antibiotic ointment to the external stitches is recommended. There should be no vigorous exercise for thirty days.

Approximately five to seven days after the vaginoplasty has been performed, the surgeon is likely to remove the stent which was put into the neo-vagina during the final phase of the operation. The vaginal canal should be dilated with instruction from your surgeon in Mexico. Complete healing is 13 weeks as with any surgery.

Risks and Side Effects

As with any surgical procedure, there are certain risks involved. General risks include bleeding, infection, inflammation, intra-vaginal hair growth, recto-vaginal fistula, allergic reactions to antibiotics or other medications, and pain (although generally minor/ controlled with medications).
