Today's women have a lot to worry about, and at Plastic Surgery Associates of Novato, we don't want discomfort and low self-esteem caused by stretched vaginal walls to be one of them. Vaginoplasty (also called surgical vaginal rejuvenation/reshaping) is a surgery used to strengthen the vaginal muscles, which sometimes become lax over time due to childbirth, age, genetics, or significant weight loss. At our Novato, CA office, plastic surgeons Drs. Francisco Canales and Heather Furnas provide surgical vaginal rejuvenation to tighten the vagina and/or reshape the inner and outer labia. If your vaginal appearance causes embarrassment or you experience vaginal pain or soreness, schedule a consultation to learn more about vaginoplasty at Plastic Surgery Associates of Novato.
Plastic Surgery Associates of Novato also offers perineoplasty, which is a cosmetic procedure that corrects the area between the vagina and rectum or perineum. Typically, this area of tissue is damaged or torn during childbirth and can leave behind unwanted scarring, which can result in vaginal looseness. During this procedure, the entrance of the vagina is narrowed, and excess skin is removed to create a tighter contour. This surgery is usually performed in conjunction with vaginoplasty.

"Love this place! I just moved to the North Bay and so happy I found them! My first appt was with Melinda, at the peak of the PG&E power outages. Despite all the chaos going on with rescheduling patients from Santa Rosa, Melinda totally took her time on my lips and Botox. I absolutely love my lips! I've been getting them done for years. This is my favorite outcome so far. Aside from doing awesome work, Melinda was so sweet. Great experience!"- M.F. / Yelp / Oct 11, 2019

At a consultation with Dr. Canales or Dr. Furnas, we will help you determine if you are an ideal candidate for vaginoplasty. Your aesthetic goals, medical history, and age will be discussed and assessed at this appointment before we can design your custom treatment plan. You may be a great candidate for a vaginoplasty if you:
- Wish to increase your sexual satisfaction
- Hope to increase your self-confidence and sexuality
- Are uncomfortable wearing tight or revealing clothing, like bathing suits
- Experience pain or soreness during sex or other activities
- Feel that your vaginal muscles did not recover after childbirth
- Have a naturally large vaginal opening
- Suffer from vaginal laxity
- Were given an episiotomy during childbirth
The vaginoplasty procedure removes the stretched vaginal lining and tightens the remaining soft tissues and muscles. The vaginoplasty procedure is usually performed in an accredited surgical facility under general anesthesia. The surgery will begin by making incisions in discreet locations near the vagina and then gently tightening the muscle tissue beneath the skin. Next, the opening of the vagina is reduced in size by eliminating a bit of the excess vaginal lining (mucosa). If you have chosen to combine your vaginoplasty with a labiaplasty, we will perform that surgery immediately after the vaginoplasty. At the end of the procedure(s), we will carefully sew close the incisions for optimal results and minimal scarring.
What to Expect
You can expect a bit of pain and tenderness following the surgery. Bruising and swelling are also common following a vaginoplasty procedure. It is recommended that you avoid sexual intercourse, tampon use, or strenuous exercise for around 4 – 6 weeks. In most circumstances, you will be able to return to stationary work in about a week with a full return to daily activities at around three months. After recovering from the surgery, you will have a renewed vaginal opening that feels and looks better. We've had patients report heightened sensitivity and increased friction during sex.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does vaginoplasty cost?
Every woman's body is unique, which means each patient will have a different treatment plan. When you visit our office, we will create a custom vaginoplasty plan that will address your specific concerns. Once this is created, we can discuss your out-of-pocket costs and provide information on low-interest medical financing.
How long will my results last?
Generally, the results of vaginoplasty will last many years if there are no sudden changes in weight and your overall health. We also recommend that patients be past childbearing as pregnancy will alter your results.
Can I have children after my surgery?
Yes. However, pregnancy will reverse your outcomes. If you wish to grow your family, then we suggest you wait until you have completed your personal goals before having vaginoplasty.
Risks of vaginoplasty?
Every procedure presents its own risks, but the most common ones associated with vaginoplasty include scarring, infection, and bleeding. To help ease any worry, Dr. Canales or Dr. Furnas can go over all your questions and concerns during your initial consultation.
