Did my vaginoplasty fail?
Doctor Answers 4
It is hard without an in person evaluation to fully answer your question and properly asses the situation
Often times there are other pelvic floor issues of concern that need to be corrected during a vaginoplasty procedure. Second, there are things you can do to help at this point. First and foremost there are exercises that are very effective. We encourage our patients Wo use the APEX machine for effective pelvic floor exercises. I would also check with your surgeon, if they have the Femilift machine then they should give that a go on you but only after they have properly evaluated your vagina and made sure there are no other issues going on.
Second, your partner needs to be assessed if there are any erection issues.
Best of luck

It takes two to tango. If the erection was not of sufficient quality, feed your man some Viagra and have him see the doctor to rule out blood flow issues (undiagnosed diabetes, etc). If not, you need to be examined by a pelvic reconstructive surgeon. In my world, a vaginoplasty is not enough to tighten the vagina effectively if there are significant weaknesses present in the vagina. These need to be repaired at the same time. Otherwise, you have a castle built on sand. I do revisionary procedures on a regular basis and undiagnosed pelvic floor issues are the most common reasons for a situation such as yours.

It is certainly possible it failed or it wasn't tightened enough to begin with. If you surgeon tightened you to 1 cm in diameter I doubt you would be writing this question on the other side of the coin could it be that she tightened by 1 cm this is certainly a possibility and perhaps 1 cm improvement was not adequate. If you plan on getting a second vaginoplasty please choose a surgeon wisely. Choose one who has the experience, expertise and results. Research wisely
