The goal of a vaginoplasty is to restore a woman's vaginal canal to the tightness it was prior to childbirth. This procedure, with proper Kegel exercises can provide a more pleasurable sexual experience for both the woman and her partner.

Tightness is a relative criteria that can vary depending on lubrication as well as your partner's size in addition to muscular tone (Kegel exercises). In general, a common goal is to achieve decrease in diameter of the vaginal canal to a point where it will snugly admit 2 to 3 fingers depending on the surgeon's and patient's preferences.
