What is Vaginoplasty?

Women have a lot to worry about, and they don't want discomfort and low self-esteem caused by stretched vaginal walls to be one of these worries. Vaginoplasty (also called surgical vaginal rejuvenation or reshaping) is a surgical procedure performed to tighten and strengthen the walls of the vagina, which may become lax over time due to childbirth, age, genetics, or significant weight loss. At our Beverly Hills, CA office, plastic surgeon Dr. Timothy Katzen offers surgical vaginal rejuvenation to tighten the vaginal wall and/or reshape the inner and outer labia. If you're uncomfortable with the appearance of your vagina, or if you experience vaginal pain or soreness, schedule a consultation with Dr. Katzen to learn more about vaginoplasty at J. Timothy Katzen, M.D. Beverly Hills.

My self-esteem and confidence have already improved by milestones - I normally don't write reviews but Dr. J Timothy Katzen and his team have gone above and beyond my expectations. I had gastric sleeve surgery and lost a total of 125 pounds. I kept convincing myself that I don't need plastic or reconstructive surgery. I figured I was healthy, and excess skin and fat is something I could live with. Boy was I wrong. Looking at my flabs and wrinkled skin was a bad reminder of my old obese self, the person I wanted to move on from. I had such low self-esteem when I was obese. I found Dr. J Timothy Katzen through Real Self and had no doubt he is the right surgeon for my situation. Dr. Katzen was the clear choice because of how many before and after pictures he had, the number of great reviews, the questions and answers, the videos, and his credentials, I mean I can go on forever. I felt super confident in my decision and sure enough, he delivered. Dr. Katzen did a circumferential body lift and I could not be more pleased with the results and care I received from everyone. I am forever grateful for how Dr. Katzen transformed my body. My self-esteem and confidence have already improved by milestones.

A miracle worker - I look like an improved version of myself - If I could give 10 stars I would. Dr. Katzen is by far the best doctor I've ever encountered. His bedside manner is impeccable and he never made me feel rushed in my appointments with him, answering every question I had. I came to him to finish my weight loss transformation after losing 150 lbs resulting in a lot of excess skin. I had 2 rounds of surgery combining several procedures together; round 1 was lower body lift with muscle repair, neck lipo, and medial thigh lift and round 2 was arm lift with horizontal back lift, breast lift, and augmentation. It was a lot and recovery was intense but Katzen and his staff always made sure that I was well taken care of and supported every step of the way. My results are beyond anything I ever imagined Dr. Katzen truly is an artist but most importantly he didn't try to sell me on procedures I didn't need and he tailored my surgeries for the best results so I look like an improved version of myself and not lot a plastic doll off the assembly lot. I'm so grateful to Dr. Katzen and his amazing staff.

Changed my life - Thank you Dr Katzen and his team for all your kindness and hard work. I'm so grateful I found you. I just couldn't live another year of this. Like I said I have tons of friends in the silicone community and I know it's a rush when you first start to mod journey and you don't really think of the consequence or long term problems. Like I said I started penis and ball enhancement about 17 years ago and it was fun at first...until it wasn't. I know a lot of guys who don't like their silicone but think if they just keep getting more at least they'll have enormous junk and guys or maybe even girls, will love that. But if you're not happy with your results and WISH you could take it back, I recommend giving Dr Katzen a call. He didn't judge me and made me feel comfortable right from the start. He has an awesome bedside manner. When he said he could make me look 85-90 percent better I cried. A lot of you guys might know me as LAmeatpacker from all the silicone groups, so you know you can trust me. You'll know when it's time to make the call. I'm looking forward to healing and not having infections on vacation, not having time sucking TSA dramas, to buying pants off the rack, and not paying for custom made, wearing shorts and tights again at the gym, and not having to sit down to piss. Thanks again Dr Katzen you changed my life.

Who is a Candidate for vaginoplasty?

During a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Katzen, he will be able to decide if you are a good candidate for vaginoplasty. Your age, medical history, and aesthetic goals will be assessed and considered at this appointment before Dr. Katzen helps you design your customized treatment plan. You could be a candidate for a vaginoplasty if you:

  • Want to increase your sexual satisfaction
  • Are seeking to restore your self-confidence and sexuality
  • Are intimidated by the thought of wearing tight or revealing clothing, like bathing suits
  • Experience pain or soreness during sex or other activities
  • Feel that your vaginal muscles did not recover after childbirth
  • Have a naturally large vaginal opening
  • Suffer from vaginal laxity
  • Were given an episiotomy during childbirth

What to expect during vaginoplasty

Vaginoplasty is typically performed as an outpatient procedure in an accredited surgical center with the patient under general anesthesia. The surgery will begin with Dr. Katzen creating incisions in discreet locations on the sides of the vagina and then gently tightening the muscle tissue beneath the skin. The vaginal opening will also be reduced in size by removing a portion of the vaginal lining (mucosa). If you plan to combine your vaginoplasty with a labiaplasty, Dr. Katzen will perform the labiaplasty surgery afterward. Following your procedure, Dr. Katzen will carefully close the incisions for optimal results and minimal scarring.

About Us

how long is recovery after vaginoplasty?

You can expect a bit of pain and tenderness following the surgery. Swelling and bruising are also common following a vaginoplasty procedure. It's recommended that you avoid sexual intercourse, tampon use, or strenuous exercise for about 4 – 6 weeks. In most circumstances, you will be able to return to seated work in about a week with a full return to daily activities at around three months. After recovering from the surgical procedure, you can expect a renewed vaginal opening that looks and feels slimmer and tighter. Some patients even report heightened sensitivity and increased friction during intercourse.


If the look of your vagina is causing you discomfort or worry, let us ease these feelings with vaginoplasty surgery. Dr. Timothy Katzen takes great pride in being able to achieve the aesthetic goals of our patients by creating unique surgical plans that address their individual needs. If you would like to learn more about how to tighten your vagina and reshape your labia, please contact our Beverly Hills, CA office and schedule a consultation with Dr. Katzen.

How long do vaginoplasty results last?

The majority of patients will only need one vaginoplasty in their lifetime because the results are enduring and long-lasting. However, your outcomes could be compromised if you gain or lose a lot of weight, become pregnant, or give birth vaginally.

Can I get pregnant after my surgery?

Dr. Katzen advises patients considering vaginoplasty to be past their planned pregnancies because childbirth can drastically affect your surgical outcomes. If you plan to have more children, you should postpone your procedure until your family is complete. If you do become pregnant after vaginoplasty, you may have an additional surgery to refresh your results.

Are there any risks from vaginoplasty?

The most common risks of vaginoplasty are bleeding, infection, and scarring. Vaginoplasty is considered a safe procedure with very few side effects. In fact, the adverse effects of pregnancy are greater than those associated with this surgery.

Is vaginoplasty a painful procedure?

While discomfort is expected during the recovery period, proper pain management techniques are employed to minimize any discomfort. Dr. Katzen and his team prioritize patient comfort throughout the process.

Will vaginoplasty affect sexual sensation?

Vaginoplasty is designed to enhance sexual satisfaction by tightening the vaginal canal. Many patients report increased sensation and pleasure during intercourse following the procedure.

What is the difference between vaginoplasty and labiaplasty?

Vaginoplasty focuses on tightening the vaginal canal and surrounding tissues, while Labiaplasty involves reshaping and reducing the size of the labia minora or majora. Both procedures can be performed separately or together to enhance vaginal aesthetics and function.
