Vaginoplasty is a surgical technique which constructs or reconstructs a vagina. The procedure is used to help women who have suffered vaginal damage, due to trauma or disease, as well as being utilized to create vaginas in male-to-female transgender persons.
Although the general term sometimes includes a range of other vaginal procedures, such as hymen reconstruction, labiaplasty and vaginal rejuvenation, true vaginal reconstruction is the focus of this article.
This operation is used on biological women who have suffered the loss of some or all of the anatomical tissue in the vagina.
Reconstruction can take the form of free-grafting donor tissue, that is harvested from various locations on the anatomy, or may take the shape of colovaginoplasty, which utilizes a section of lower colon to create the vaginal canal.
In male-to-female transsexuals, these methods can also be used, especially if the recipient has already elected to have their penis and testicles removed separately.
In most cases, however, the vagina is formed using the penis inversion technique or the more enlightened Thai method, often called the Suporn technique, for its inventor, Dr. Suporn Watanyusakul.

Vaginal Surgery Variations
Vaginal reconstructions, in biological women, are individualized techniques, since every patient has a different reason to undergo the procedure and requires a specific amount of reparative assistance.
Some women simply need to have a functional and existing vaginal canal lengthened or widened, while others may need a complete replacement.
Still other women may also require external vulva construction or reconstruction. Labia surgery has become a common genital specialty for plastic surgeons.
In transgender patients, there are several methods of creating functional and sensitive vaginal tissues, with and without clitoral structures. While no single technique has enjoyed universal acceptance as the best way to go, many patients flock to Thailand for treatment, since there are numerous surgeons in practice there who exclusively handle transgender issues common to the large katoey (ladyboy) population in that Southeast Asian nation.
