Confidence, Sexual enjoyment, and Feelings of Femininity

Women’s bodies undergo a variety of changes caused by the hormonal fluctuations of adolescence, pregnancy, and menopause, along with the physical demands of carrying and delivering children. The female genitalia are made up of delicate tissue, making this area especially susceptible to these influences, which often cause physical and emotional discomfort.

In Toronto, Dr. DuPéré’s vaginal rejuvenation procedures help women feel better about their bodies. Request a consultation with Dr. Marc DuPéré, or call our office at (416) 929-9800


Childbirth, weight fluctuations, and certain medical conditions, among other things, can cause the vaginal muscles to become lax, and in some cases, cause the surrounding tissues to protrude out of the vaginal opening. Vaginoplasty is an effective, surgical solution for these concerns.

How Can a Vaginoplasty Help?

Women choose vaginoplasty to correct a number of issues. The benefits may include:

  • Creating a tighter and narrower vaginal canal and opening
  • Reducing excess vaginal lining
  • Alleviating pressure and discomfort through improved support of the pelvic floor
  • Enhancing sexual satisfaction
  • Improving self-confidence

During the consultation, Dr. DuPéré ensures that patients have realistic expectations about the results of vaginoplasty. There is no guarantee that sexual pleasure and performance will be heightened with this procedure.

Dr. DuPéré’s Vaginoplasty Technique

Dr. DuPéré performs vaginoplasty as an outpatient procedure. Though the surgery can rarely be performed under local anesthesia, most patients choose to be placed under general anesthesia. Dr. DuPéré performs vaginoplasty through an incision in the perineum and posterior or lateral vaginal wall, allowing him to tighten the underlying muscles and supporting tissues (a 2-layer repair). During this process, he also tightens the opening of the vagina and the perineum.

Recovering from Vaginoplasty

Rest and relaxation after surgery are imperative for a smooth recovery. It is not uncommon to feel a deep ache for the first couple of days; however, this discomfort can be minimized with prescribed pain medication. Additionally, ice packs can be used to manage swelling.

While experiences vary, most patients are ready to return to work or school within 2-4 days. For the first 4 to 6 weeks, patients must refrain from vigorous exercise, sexual intercourse, and the use of tampons.


Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that may be appropriate for women who have concerns about the appearance of their inner labia or outer labia. Many women choose to undergo labiaplasty to correct physical concerns as well, such as hygienic problems or pain during intercourse and physical activities.

Clitoral Hood Reduction

This procedure is often combined with labiaplasty (then called Horseshoe Labiaplasty) to reduce excess folds of the clitoral hood. These extra folds can create a bulge, causing the female genitalia to look unbalanced. Dr. DuPéré will create a customized surgical plan that will fit the specific anatomy of the patient. The surgery can be done under local or general anesthesia and the recovery is dependent on whether the patient is combining her clitoral hood reduction with another procedure.


Childbirth can create tears in the perineum, which may cause uneven scarring or a disfigured appearance when healed. The scarring and damage may make intercourse painful. Perineal repair, also called perineoplasty, addresses the damage, resurfaces the tissue, and tightens the muscles. This procedure is often combined with vaginoplasty or another restorative vaginal procedure.

Potential Risks and Complications for Surgical Vaginal Rejuvenation

Every procedure comes with some inherent risks. Although very rare, Dr. DuPéré educates all his patients about potential risks.

Those risks can include: opening of the wounds and infections (extremely rare), fatty cysts after fat grafting to the labia majora (which will often reabsorb), excessive reabsorption of the fat grafts (possibly requiring a second fat grafting procedure), scar retraction, painful scars and loss of tissue due to vascular compromise (extremely rare), hematomas (rare) and increased or decreased sensitivity (always a possibility when manipulating tissue with such specialized nerve endings).
