Reconstruction of the Vagina

Reconstruction of the Vagina / External Genitalia Deformities

Deformities of the external genitalia from cancer surgery, birth defects, female “circumcision”, intersex, trauma, or other causes are not uncommon. Reconstruction with major improvement is possible for many of these deformities.

Vaginal creation is performed to reconstruct the surgically removed vagina for cancer, to create a vagina for children with congenital absence of the vagina or intersex, and to make a vagina for transsexuals. Various techniques are used depending on the deformity and the chosen type of reconstruction. The various techniques used include skin grafts, local flaps of tissue, and bowel.
