Dear Dr Sabeen
A vaginoplasty is really a generic term which means "surgery of the vagina". Most surgeons use the term to mean "vaginal tightening". What you are interested in is a "neovagina". A neovagina surgery is much much more specialized than even doing a vaginoplasty. Most women who find out they have vaginal agenesis actually have an underlying condition known as MRKH or AIS. MRKH has a prevalence of 1/5000 women and these women are born with only a dimple of a vagina. My partner and have been performing laparoscopic Neovagina surgery since 1999. I learned this least invasive technique known as the Davydov Procedure in Russia that year and since have performed more than 400 cases with a 97-98% satisfaction rate. This means the woman is able to have intercourse without pain and she is happy with the results of the surgery.
