MTF Neovaginal Collapse Revision

MTF Neovaginal Collapse Revision

        Neo-vaginal collapse is a complication that can occur after transgender affirmation surgery. There are several factors that contribute to this, such as poor dilation practices, skin necrosis inside the vaginal cavity, smoking, diabetes, high BMI, and old age. A collapsed vagina can negatively impact a person's quality of life, so secondary vaginoplasty may be necessary to reconstruct the vaginal canal.

        Secondary vaginoplasty is a procedure that reconstructs the vagina after prior injury or surgery, or due to congenital issues. It aims to improve function and comfort, as well as restore sexual satisfaction and confidence. The procedure may involve existing tissues, skin or mucosal grafts, and may be performed by a specialist in reconstructive genital surgery.

        Several techniques can be used for secondary vaginoplasty, including colon graft, peritoneum graft, and skin graft. The specific technique chosen will depend on the patient's anatomy and prior surgeries or injuries. Candidates for this procedure must be in good health, not have HIV, Hepatitis B or C, and have a BMI less than 27.

        At Kamol Hospital, we understand the importance of functional vaginoplasty for a person's quality of life, and offer revision surgeries to improve vaginal depth. Our team of experts, including colorectal surgeons, gynecologists, plastic surgeons, and other support staff, is dedicated to ensuring successful results.
