Vagina Tightening Surgery (Vaginoplasty)


Vaginal Tightening Surgery is a surgical procedure that we usually resort to in cases where vaginal enlargement occurs due to birth, aging or other reasons. This surgery aims to narrow the vagina, make it tighter and provide both aesthetic and functional improvements. Also known as vaginoplasty, this procedure helps restore the vagina to a more youthful and firm state.


Vaginal tightening surgery is performed using basically two methods: colporrhaphy posterior and colporrhaphy anterior. While colporrhaphy posterior is used to stitch the tissues on the back wall of the vagina together, colporrhaphy anterior is applied when the anterior wall needs to be narrowed. These techniques are derived from the terms “colpos” (vagina) and “raphy” (to sew) and refer to narrowing the back (posterior) and front (anterior) walls of the vagina, respectively.

Pre-operative preparations are similar to labioplasty surgery. The patient arrives at the hospital hungry and thirsty on the day of surgery and is put under anesthesia before starting the procedures. The surgery generally takes 30-40 minutes and patients are not expected to feel pain. It is possible to listen to soothing music during the procedure.

Vaginal tightening surgery is mostly performed on the posterior wall and narrowing is achieved by removing and tightening the tissue between the specified time periods. If the vagina is excessively enlarged and there are additional problems such as sagging of the bladder, the anterior colporrhaphy method can also be applied. It is emphasized that for the success of the surgery, the entire vagina must be narrowed properly and evenly. After the surgery, a tampon is inserted into the vagina to prevent bleeding or hematoma, and patients can stand up after the effects of spinal anesthesia wear off.


Postoperative stitches are located inside the vagina and are self-dissolving, so stitches do not need to be removed. While the patient rests at home after surgery, she takes antibiotics to prevent infection and painkillers for possible pain. Additionally, batikon is given to dress the outer stitches.

The first relationship after surgery can sometimes be difficult, and this will improve over time. A few drops of bleeding during the first sexual intercourse are normal, and over time, these difficulties will decrease as the vagina adapts to the penis.
