Stitches with vaginoplasty

I use dissolvable sutures with vaginoplasty always.  The sutures last anywhere from 6 weeks to 3 months.  All the best!

Vaginoplasty & Stitches

All vaginoplasties use sutures (stitches). Most surgeons use dissolvable sutures that do not need to be removed after surgery.

Sutures with Vaginoplasty

Yes most of us use dissolvable sutures to perform a vaginoplasty.     However, we have also been using a CO2 fractionated laser to perform vaginal tightening which has been getting great results with no pain, no down time and no sutures.
