The vagina is strengthened throughout its length by a layer of smooth muscle; this layer is complemented in the outer third by a very strong sheet of voluntary and involuntary muscles (called the ‘levator ani”) that, together with strong connective tissue layers, form the pelvic floor.
During the vaginoplasty, a biological implant consisting of a sheet of collagen will be placed under the vaginal muscle. This graft will act as a framework for your own tissues to grow and result in a firm layer between the rectum and vagina.
The muscles of the vagina (bulbo cavernosis) will also be re-approximated, adding to the strength and improving the function of the vagina.
By combining the graft material with the muscle re-approximation and removal of excess tissue, the vagina will be restored to its functional level prior to childbirth. These results cannot be achieved with a simple laser procedure.
