See below: Vaginoplasty is a reconstructive plastic surgery and cosmetic procedure for the vaginal canal and its mucous membrane, and of vulvo-vaginal structures that might be absent or damaged because of congenital disease (e.g. Vaginal atresia) or because of an acquired cause (e.g. Childbirth physical trauma, cancer).

Vaginoplasty: This literally means plastic repair of the vagina. This procedure is done through vaginal incisions to tighten the vaginal opening and lessen the diameter of the vaginal tube. It is done as outpatient surgery. Find a very experienced vaginal surgeon if you are considering having this procedure done.
