Vaginoplasty is usually done under general anesthesia. It lasts about 1 hour and rarely requires hospitalization.
The surgeon begins by making an incision at the entrance of the vagina to prepare the ground for dissection of the muscular floor. The surgeon then removes the excess tissue and proceeds to the reinjection of fat to reshape the vaginal wall. A bandage is then placed on the vulva to protect it.
The sutures used are absorbable, so they do not need to be removed. Since the mucous membranes have a very good healing capacity, the scars are practically invisible.
